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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We enjoyed our campsite here! The bathrooms were clean and had fans going 24/7. I liked that most of the campsites were on the inside ring but well spaced and many had a trail to the restroom through the center ring (vs. walking past all the sites to go to the restroom). Also, there were neat trails and the old cemetery for the abandoned town was cool. About 2 miles down the road was another state park with a fresh water spring. It was always 72 degrees, so there was a place to swim not far away but not walking distance. There was a boat ramp, but not really anywhere to swim at this state park. We heard a train once, but inside a 1956 vintage trailer (not built for being soundproof) we did not hear it at all during the night. There is a gas station/convenience store within 1/2 a mile of the park entrance which was nice. Most sites were wooded and shaded. I think three were paved. But most were private.

Nice state park, but not easy to navigate in large rig. Turns are extremely tight, very narrow roadway once you get to the physical campground area. Trees border the road and seem to be right where you need to drive your tow vehicle to make the turn without taking your awning off! Only 2 pull through sites, both of which are on corners and are nearly "L" shaped which makes it very hard for turning and maneuvering into the site. After two trips around the campground loop, we found site 27 to be the most accommodating for our 41' toy hauler. There was open space next to the road which allowed us to pull forward and back in, plus it was a concrete pad. Park was very quiet and serene. Only stayed overnight so did not check out the amenities. Folks with coaches 35' and under would probably be able to negotiate turns, but would not recommend park for anything longer. Info on Florida State parks website is a little misleading. Manager/park ranger was very nice. For this reason, am rating this as a 5 due to tightness of turns, roadway width and maneuverability. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park was disappointing. I expected more of the history that is advertised as being there. A piece of wood stating it had come from a riverboat, a sign stating a saw mill had once been there and other poor examples of history. But the trails were good for hiking. Boating and fishing was enjoyed by many. I thought the campsites to be overly dirty. The table on our site was so embedded with food and mold we could not use it. Fire pit did not look to be have been cleaned in some time. But my husband liked the woodsy location so we will probably return for a few nights.

Nice campground. Very quiet. Interesting history. We didn't canoe or Kayak but most people were there for that. We did ride our mountain bikes around the area and enjoyed the history. We found the old cemetery. Restrooms were clean. Had an issue with what we thought was a wheel bearing on our travel trailer when we pulled in.Ranger gave us a card for a repairman who was out early the next morning and resolved the issue. We stayed in spot #24 which was small but we fit easily. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Travel Trailer.
