River mile 140.9 GPS Location: N 30 25.81, W 83 2.17
Holton Creek is 7.6 miles from Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and will welcome you with an expanse of white sandy beach along the curvy Suwannee River. This heavily wooded camp is a great place to stay an extra day or two to explore. It is located within a 2,500 acre Suwannee River Water Management District Tract and right along the Florida Trail. Hikers can follow trails that trace the river’s edge or meander through the property to find sinks, swales, sloughs and a number of impressive trees including champion Cypress trees as well as mature oaks, hickories and magnolias.
Please be aware that scheduled hunting is permitted on the property surrounding this camp at certain times of the year. The camp is not affected by hunting but the surrounding area is closed for hiking. For information on hunting season dates, call (386) 758-0525 or visit MyFWC.com.
From Holton Creek, many paddlers choose to travel 13.2 miles to Suwannee River State Park rather than trying to tackle 27.9 miles to the next river camp, Dowling Park.
