Thank you for your interest in Suwannee River State Park. Now that fall is here, why not take advantage and bring out the family for a picnic or family reunion? It is also a perfect time to enjoy a day out on the Historic Suwannee River, or take a leisurely hike along the Big Oak Trail or along the banks of the river on the Suwannee River Trail. If Canoeing or kayaking is your interest, local outfitters offer canoe rentals and can drop you off and pick you up anywhere along the Suwannee River.


The high banks and limestone outcroppings of the Historic Suwannee River offer a panoramic view and become the perfect backdrop for a wedding or to renew your vows. The park is alive with history and recreational opportunities, and is centrally located for day trips to Madison Blue Springs State Park, Lafayette Blue Springs State Park, Ichetucknee Springs State Park, O’Leno River State Park, and Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park.


The fish are biting and the scenic beauty of the natural resource is breathtaking. We look forward to your visit!
