    The campground has 31 spaces (31 being the camp host). Most are close together. We stayed in #30. It's across the road from all the rest and only next to the camp host, which was nice. Just behind the site is a wide space which provides a shortcut to the river. There is a tree close to the utility pole, so pay attention when backing the camper in. 20/30/50 amp plug ins available and sewer.

    It shaded and sandy with an extra long picnic table. Fire pit had no grill at all, although we saw that the other sites did.

    Suwannee River SP is located where the Suwannee and Withlacoochee Rivers meet. Both are spring-fed rivers and are lovely and easy to canoe or kayak on. The Florida Trail goes through the park. Big Oak Trail, besides leading to its namesake, parallels the two rivers offering views of sinkholes and plenty of fauna. No nature museum or visitor center at the park. Nice for a close weekend getaway from Tallahassee or Jacksonville, but not much to do without a boat.

    There is a convenience store outside the park otherwise you are in the middle of nowhere. Ten miles to Lee, a very small town, or 25-30 for Madison or Live Oak, medium-sized towns.

    We would definitely return to canoe. Very peaceful.
