This is one of Florida's parks that thy decorate with lights at Christmas. The sites are cleaned after the campers leave. There are both shaded and open sites. They have back in sites and pull through. They also have cabins that are fully furnished with linen and dishes. We have stayed here several times over the Christmas holidays. Great place for kids to ride bikes. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a small town near with a Dollar General, a grocery store and a hardware store. Lake City with its fast food and Walmart / Target / Etc. is about 20 miles south.

This is the nicest state park we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Not one bad site here. We are in a 100' very level pull through site surrounded by palm trees. It is a beautiful park and very well maintained. Access was easy off the interstate and the interior roads are easy to maneuver for our 40' fifth wheel. They have 50 amp available, but we stayed in a 30 amp due to late arrival. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow, what a great State Park. We spent only one night on our way across Florida but it would be worth making a special trip to stay at this park.

Whoever is in charge here is a stickler for details. Everything from the welcome, to the grounds, to the sites to the bathhouses was fantastic.

This is the prototype for how to make a great State Park. Well, worth the 9+ rating. If you are nearby Lake City, Florida make it a point to stop and stay here. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a museum, small craft shops, bike rentals and such on the well-kept grounds here. There was a wedding going on the day we were there and everyone was invited to attend. There's not much to the town but with a park this great that's OK.

All month during December they turn the park into a Christmas wonderland and folks drive thru and take hay rides, etc. Seems to be a pretty big deal.

Overall park area is beautiful around museum and tower. Gravel, level sites with trees all around. Road prone to flooding in rain. Verizon cell data service good. Unable to pick up any tv via antenna. Sites close but vegatation helps. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit museum for sure

We stayed in a very nice spot 11 in canebreak that backed up to a multiuse trail and a large shaded field. My dog loved it and went for a lot of walks. The spots are gravel, 50 amp and immaculately kept - kudos to the camp host! The carillon and museum and gift shop were all wonderful and everything was pristine. The mosquitoes were non existent here and I loved that about it. the restaurant wasn't open and not much happens here until the weekend. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are a lot of springs in the area that are worth seeing - we went in the direction of Live Oak and saw Peacock Springs and Charles Springs (hard to find) but there are many to be found and they are beautiful. White Springs doesn't have much to offer in the way of entertainment.

Fantastic state park! Clean and neatly kept all around - including: sites, playground, and attractions. Recycling in the campground was a welcome addition. All sites are a nice length that easily accommodate your unit and tow vehicle. A little tight getting through the check in/ranger station, but otherwise very RV friendly even for bigger units. Even though other sites nearby, there is plenty of privacy between each site by natural vegetation. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is everything we've looked for. Not fancy but functional. Lots of things to do to keep you busy for a day or two. Bike rentals, reasonable. Museum, gift shop. Lacks large/super stores but not an issue. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't expect an urban area. This is Old Florida.

This campground has level gravel sites and is a good park to Hike, bike, and see the bell tower a tribute to Stephen Foster. There is a lot of his pianos, antiques and art work on display there. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

For any thing major to buy you will need to go about fourteen miles to Lake City. There you will fine Walmart and about any other regular store.

One of the best state parks we have ever stayed in. Huge spacious private sites. Our site seemed like a private oasis, so much so that we extended our stay by 2 days. Lots to do here and a really cool bell tower that goes off regularly. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

A beautiful park with a museum dedicated to Stephen Foster. A bell carrion tower rings out every 15 minutes and a song at the top of each hour. Sites were super clean and raked. It was obvious that the campground hosts worked hard on the appearance. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Third day here, leaving tomorrow. Great park, quiet, clean, and shady. Staying in pull-through site 42. Rate is FL resident. There is Wi-Fi at the gift shop but not at the sites. AT&T cell and data three bars and LTE at 10 down and 6 up. There is OTA TV available, decent signal, all four networks. Only reason for a 9 is lack of sewer, but we knew that going in.

Great park with plenty of room between sites. Level site with campfire was nice. Even was able to get a satellite signal through the trees for our TV. Liked the history and museum on the property. The hiking trails were good, but could have used a sign or two to improve the markings. Recommend getting the hiking map from the ranger at checkin. Florida knows how to do their State Parks. We love them and can't wait to see more of them. We would camp here again. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

Our favorite spot in north Florida. Beautiful grounds, lots of shade, dependable utilities. Just lacks sewer hookups. We continue to return. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful place - highly recommended. Huge, shaded campsites with excellent water/electric utilities and beautiful views. Incredibly quiet. Only thing that keeps it from a 10 is no sewer but there is a dump station. The museum is fascinating if small, and the store/craft demonstrations are fun. Don't miss the views of the historic Suwanee River. Lots of beautiful hiking trails and canoes/bikes for rent at the store. We'll stay here again.

2nd stay here this year. Clean, level, spacious sites. Some have more privacy than others. Bells ring the quarter hours and concerts daily. Nice playground, walking and bicycling trails. Crafters doing demos most days. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.
