  • This is a great park with great trails. My husband and I love to walk our dogs here. Definitely check out the little springs!  more »
  • First time I had ever been in the Suwannee River. I didn't have historical data to refer to. No warnings. A Sturgeon ( as I later learned) came from the water, lifting its entire body out of the water...  more »
  • Nice trails along the river. Neat little camping ground. Not too far from other parks and springs. The Suwanee River is the oldest river in Florida and has a lot of culture and natural history you can learn about it here. Right next to the Florida Trail too, so through hikers can stop in to camp and possibly refresh.
  • Very poor campground. Dirty sites on top of each other. Trails and picnic area okay. Staff not very helpful.
  • Beautiful, fun, exciting and more. You must put it on your bucket list of things to do.
  • Small Park. Not much to do. Only two trails. River is way below land impossible to get to. Boat ramp is long and very steep, to the point it's dangerous. But campground is very nice. Only 30 sites.
