Not really suitable for Class A MH >30ft IMHO. Very unlevel sites, too many tree and tree root obstructions. State of Florida needs to get this park updated for today's RV. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful state park, with full hookups. Staff was friendly, sites were level. Great views of the river. This is a gem of a park. Utilities were good, we were in a 38' Motorhome. Definitely would recommend. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

Small campground, but a great place in the woods. Sites are shady, defined, not too close sand sites with 50/30/20 amp, water, sewage. Rangers and staff are friendly and helpful. Some real history here. Several great hiking trails from a half mile to 7 miles, paved roads and loops for biking. The river trail and the lime sink trail are both very good reasonable length hikes. Facilities and campground are first class and clean. Staff always busy keeping it nice. Five very nice cabins. Quiet campground the nights we were there. We did hear trains go by, but they are few pretty quiet and fast. No bother. Typical great Florida State Park. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hike, enjoy nature and some history. This is the Suwannee River folks. There are 5 trails. Each a little different. Some easy hiking, some moderate with elevations and roots/rocks encountered. Check Live Oak out for craft shows.

Very pleased with this park. We took one of the short hiking trails to an old early 1800's cemetery. Great fun looking at the headstones. Showers & bathrooms kept spotless the week we were there. Our family had great fun at the "swap table" by the bath house. Everything from books, DVDs to tea lights & towels were offered. We took a book & left some DVDs. All sites are well shaded & have full hookups. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very nice playground near the river.

Another very nice Florida State Park, well maintained, 50 amp service, water and sewer. Access to the Suwanee River nearby. Very pleasant park, quiet and clean. We have been here before and would return again. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice Park. If you're into hiking or fishing, good park. There is a canoe rental outside the park. I believe he will bring the canoe to you or take you upstream. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent park with FHU. Quiet, nice trails and next to a great river environment. Big Rig accessible at many sites with nice restrooms and washer/dryer facilities. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

Our first visit to this park. It is obviously being updated as shower house is newish and very clean. Laundry facility is minimal. Cell & TV reception is adequate. Interesting hiking although the river is above flood stage, so boat ramp and limestone sink were closed. The only detraction were mosquitoes, so take protection. The rate quoted is for a senior Florida resident. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

The park is just a short ways off of Interstate 10, so is convenient for travelers. When we visited, a number of the trails were closed because the river was flooding. The campground sites are reasonably well separated with some vegetation for privacy but do not expect complete privacy. The utilities are good with full hook-ups. There is a one washer and dryer, but beware, the dryer ate about $2. Our Verizon phone and data worked well but with all the tree cover we were unable to find a hole for satellite. There is a Publix food store in Live Oak, about 15 miles from the park. The ranger was great in accommodating us, even though we did not have reservations. We would definitely visit this park again for a one or two night stop, probably not as a destination. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

We selected Suwannee River State Park because we planned on kayaking the rivers in the area and we prefer to stay at state parks when we can. The facilities at the park were nice, although we did not use the showers. The sites are nice, with tree cover and some level of distance between most sites. We had a corner site that was exceptionally large and was a pull-through, an added bonus. The entire loop is .3 miles, so overall it's not very large. Each site has full hookups, but some people complained that the distance to the sewer hookup was too far. We did notice that most people needed longer sewer hoses. The sewer was also high, making it difficult for liquids to flow easily into it. This was a minor annoyance, considering all the other nice things about the park. They have a washer and dryer outside of the restrooms that worked fairly well. This is a pretty park, but there isn't a lot to do in the general area. There are several short trails, which I recommend. The Lime Sink Run Trail is especially nice. There is no real place for bicycling, but the younger kids enjoyed biking the campground loop. There are no restaurants nearby. A few restaurants in Madison (10 miles). Live Oak is about 25 miles in the other direction, but you have more choices there. We stayed here for 11 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I hope that we can return sometimes. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here 3 nights. Site was tight to get our 34 foot trailer into. Would have been much better if the site sign post was on the opposite side of the entry. Lots of shade. Wife got bitten by chiggers but that is florida. Suwanee river is close by for water activities. We rented canoes and had a great time. Plenty of trails for walking and riding bicycles. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park on the Suwannee River. Well maintained and clean. Rate reflects Florida senior discount. Only stayed one night en route to Alabama, but we would return again if in this area. Would like to spend more time on the river here. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

February 23 – Suwannee River State Park, Live Oaks, FL. This is one of the original Florida State Parks in the northern part of the state right on the Suwannee River. The park has more than 1800 acres. The sites have full hookups, but it is not listed like that. This is an easy off interstate 10 in Live Oaks. There are only 30 sites at the campground. One can hike, bike, or canoe, or kayak on the river. It is also a historic site where the Confederates held off the Yankees taking over the river. Cost was $24.20 but no reservation fee. We were stunned that this campground was full even though it was a Saturday night. The campgrounds in northern Florida are not usually full in the month of February. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Motorhome.

After reading some of the reviews we had mixed feelings, but it turned out to be a nice park. We stayed in site #22 which was a back in site. It had room enough for our 36 ft motor home and more. Our fire ring was clean as well as the rest of the site. Bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. Downside would be no cable and few sites with satellite clearance. Over all the campground is a small, rustic place with leisurely hiking trails and small craft boating. We enjoyed our visit and will stay again when in the area.

The rangers are as nice as the host. The rest rooms, park and grounds were clean. There are interesting walking trails, and during the summer there is good canoeing on the river. Also, they say there is good fishing at times along this river. Now for the bad. The park is full hook-up, but good luck on a lot of these sites. The sewer dump pipe will be higher than your RV dump pipe. I don`t know who laid this out, but they have never camped in an RV. Most of the dump pipes are on the up-hill side of the sites, and some others are six to eight inches off the ground. Also, they are located to the front of the sites, where you will need 30 to 40 feet of hose to reach it, with any RV of 25 feet or longer. .Also, you will need two to four inches of blocks to level side to side, and more if you are in a rig without jacks front to back. One thing that stood out: the park work campers were parked on two of the handicap spots. One did have a handicap tag, but if they are working the park, they should leave those spots available for RV'er campers coming in that need those handicap sites more. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Travel Trailer.
