Rate reflected Passport America rate for full hookups. This park was somewhat rustic but a pleasant change from the manicured sites we had been accustomed to. The park was clean and tidy with a pleasant small activity building. There were lots of paths and trails to walk and a paved bicycle trail was 4 miles away. The cable TV was marginal and we opted to use our antennae which provided a few more channels and a better picture. The water pressure was very low and we ended up using our RV water pump when showering. The park has 2 washing machines and 2 dryers. The dryer took 2 full cycles (on high) and the clothes were still damp so plan to wash on a day when the clothes can be hung out to dry. The pool was not heated. Wi-Fi was OK at the park hot spot. The staff were friendly and pleasant to deal with. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a rustic park. In our case, rustic is good. Sites are not paved. Water, electric, sewer all worked as expected. Cable TV left something to be desired. Management was very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The pool closed at 6 pm. The river was 1/4 of a mile through the woods to reach a floating dock that was about 4 ft wide and maybe 8 ft long. Nothing for the kids to do at all. We stayed one night We will not be back. This is a park for the older folks. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have traveled all the way from Montana to Florida and have stayed an campgrounds all the way down to the Florida keys. This is by far the nicest, quietest, and most private of all. We have enjoyed the grounds and the wildlife immensely. All the facilities are clean and the owners have obviously invested a lot of time and money making this a wonderful place to stay. I plan on making this my favorite campground. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stay here every time we go through this area. Friendly staff, courtesy service to sites. Bathrooms are rustic, but clean. Beautiful location. They really have put a lot into building trails along the Suwanee River and woods, and continue to work on the campground. Easy in/out, large sites, friendly campers. It's worth the trip, time, and camping fee. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

They advertise 2000 feet of Suwannee River frontage, but you must walk on a boardwalk close to 1/2 mile to even see the river. The owners seem quite nice and even bring you to your campsite. There are a lot of rules (16 written). They show a $15 rate for P/A members, but by the time you add sewer and fairly mandatory 50 amp power it is $19 plus tax. If you don't buy sewer hook up, you can dump for $2. The campground is very quiet; access by about a mile of dirt road. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice, quiet park to get away from it all. Great views, nice owners and good services. There are ponds, walking trails and a boardwalk to the river that is stunningly beautiful. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

Water supply is on a well and the park is near the river, we ruined our central water filter due to rust and junk in the water. Not a show stopper but be sure to have a filter, I went to Wal-Mart and got a cheap external until I could replace our central filter. Park is laid back, quiet and out of the way, not much to do but lay back. Would stay again. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We decided on this park basically because of the previous reviews. However, we were not prepared for the extremely unlevel site that was assigned to us. Because we were only overnighting, I requested only water and electric. But, because our motorhome is over “33 feet”, we had to pay for 50A at an additional $2. We could have sufficed with 30A for the evening. Our site was basically a utility post at the edge of the road, no distinct site at all. In order to level, our back tires were off the ground!!!! Most all of the other sites in the park looked a whole lot more level than ours. The wi-fi was good, but it wasn’t available at the site. The “hotspot” is on the porch of the clubhouse. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. Showers, laundry, restrooms, were all very clean. Pet friendly, but there was no place to throw a ball for our dogs. Boardwalk was amazing and the dogs did take a swim in the river. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a decent place. This is a “Good Sam” park but that is an overrating. The office people were friendly and took us to our campsite. Our site was on grass, I think all of them are, with some trees around us. Sandy roads inside the campground but with no overhanging branches to catch the unwary. There is a 1500 foot boardwalk to the Suwannee River. You can swim in the Suwannee if you want but there are no lifeguards. The campground has a mix of snowbirds and overnighters. I didn't notice any “permanent” residents. Odd cable TV with the three old networks plus Fox, TV Land and Fix News. NBC came from New York of all places and it seemed like ABC was coming out of California. PBS on the antenna. Full hook-ups but low water pressure. WiFi at a hot spot in the clubhouse. There is a tent camping area in the woods near the boardwalk. This is a very quiet area, well off the main roads. The entrance road is 0.6 mile (not 1.5 miles as someone else has said) bumpy mystery pavement with sand and gravel over the top. The paved road out front is fairly narrow. Two Class A units meeting would probably have to slow down and pass carefully. The Nature Coast Trail, a 32 mile paved biking, hiking, and equestrian trail is 5 miles away in Old Town. We stayed here in a 31 foot Class C for 5 nights and payed $95 with a Passport America discount. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

Suwannee River Hideaway has a unique office and store with lots of reading material. The staff are friendly and welcome you as friends. It is set in beautiful surroundings with a modern clubhouse. The rustic facilities are adequate and very clean. There is an awesome boardwalk to the Suwannee with deck and dock on the River. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle to peace and quiet this is the place to go! We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Truck Camper.

We paid the PA rate. This campground has a lot of potential, but it has some major flaws. The pros: remote, very quiet, boardwalk to the Suwannee River, wide sites, friendly staff. Cons: extra charge for 50-amp, county roads leading to the park entrance very narrow, road from park entranced unpaved, rutted and dusty, power went out twice during our overnight stay. After we got set up, we started to read the campground handout and found out that they require wooden blocks under all leveling jacks. As my wife said, “Not after we are set up.” We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was not what we were expecting after reading about it in Woodalls. The staff were all friendly and helpful but the park itself was a disappointment. After driving down a 1 1/2 mile unpaved washboard road, we arrived at a campground with no paved roads, no concrete pads, or landscaping. I can't imagine what the parking sites are like when it rains. The restrooms were clean, but old, unheated, and covered with a screen door. If the outside temps are low, the showers will be cold. Water pressure is minimal. They do have Wi-Fi, as advertised, but it is available only if you take your laptop to the office or clubhouse. The cable TV consisted of 6 channels and the picture was adequate. If you have a roof top satellite, you may have to search around for a site where you can get a good signal without interference from the trees. The park is a "natural" landscaped park with nothing but dirt roads and mowed grass/weeds to park your unit on. We camped there in a motorhome. I would stay here again only if there were no other vacancies in the area. We camped at Suwannee River Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.
