Mebane Cory-Ogden, Park Manager

Fanning Springs State Park is so diverse. Between the beautiful spring and the world-famous Suwannee River, it is hard to pick one area of the park as my favorite. The clear spring water flows gently to the Suwannee River where you may see resting manatees or jumping sturgeon! It’s a magical place that will feed your spirit and bring you some needed down time away from the stresses of life.

Whether it’s sitting on the front screened porch of one of our five fully furnished two bedroom/two bathroom cabins, paddling down the Suwannee River or hiking a trail, we have you covered. A wide variety of wildlife and wildflowers resides here. As you tour the park, be prepared to snap a photo of the beautiful water, red-tailed hawks, and the diversity of amazing trees and plants.
