  • GREAT PLACE FOR SOME LAID BACK RELAXATION... WE STAYED IN ONE OF THEIR CABINS WHICH WAS FANTASTIC. IT WAS FULLY FURNISHED AND ALL YOU NEED BRING IS SOME FOOD. LOTS OF CLEAR TRAILS TO FOLLOW WITH WONDERFUL VIEWS OF THE FAMOUS SUWANNEE RIVER. WE PLAN ON MAKING THIS PLACE A "MUST RETURN" ON OUR STATE PARK LIST. OH, THE RANGERS THERE WERE VERY HELPFUL AND AS IS IN MOST OF OUR STATE PARKS THEY ARE OVERWORKED DUE TO POLITIANS CUTTING THEIR BUDGET YEAR AFTER YEAR...
  • I love this park! It's just off I-10, so it's a nice place to stop and take a break from driving.
  • The state parks of Florida are nothing more than parking lots of motorhomes, and large trailers .. Its just a money making deal. The people who are hired to work at the gate/check in booth, are generally ugly, miserable, unfriendly. The parks themselves are nice .. but compared to parks throughout north America, they suck. Florida has sold out to the motorhome, trailer snowbirds .. avoid the parks if you can .. just my opinion after camping and visiting ..
  • My Family and I just got back from a 3 day stay at Suwannee River State Park and after reading the reviews on this park (the majority of which are far too old too be relevant) I felt it necessary to post a review for those considering this as a destination. Let's establish a point of reference, this park is in the middle of nowhere which means a few important things to consider: go through your supply list because other than a local convenient store you are miles away from anything else, cell phone coverage is spotty at best and inconsistent from day to day. The last two points are great if that's what your looking for, very little to no noise pollution (honestly it's amazing how much there is that we don't recognize until we do without it), no wifi/cable/tv/data meant my kids had to find things that they could do without a screen. Cabins: When we walked in with the disinfectant spray and wipes expecting to have to do a little work to bring it up to "Wife" standards, we were pleasantly surprised to smell nothing but clean and after the detailed inspection of the cabin it was given the approval stamp by my Wife who has failed some 5 star hotels before. The cabins were wonderfully equipped with utensils, more than adequate a/c, hot water, ceiling fans, great dining room table with chairs and the one we were in (#3) had a sit at kitchen bar. Wrap around screened porch with a fantastic swing, rocking chairs, a couples rocking chair, and a picnic bench. The Park: First let me say that I do not agree with any of the previous negative reviews about the Rangers, they were all very friendly, helpful, and informative. You could see them working hard every day to keep the park clean and in great shape. Ok, this park has a medium sized playground and lots of trails for hiking on the banks of the river and in the forest. Not minimizing the great trails and adventures that go with it, please don't expect anything else, there was enough to explore for 3 kids that they didn't ask for anything else. Bottom line: Highly recommend for anyone wanting to get away from the noise and closer together.
  • Great little park, very peaceful. Have been coming here for years.
