People have been navigating and recreating on the Suwannee River since prehistoric times. During the mid to late 1800s, steamboat traffic was common along the Suwannee as a source of supplies and sales for farmers. The creation of the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail has brought together many public and private entities to create a cooperative structure of amenities making the exploration and enjoyment of the Suwannee River a comfortable experience for paddlers of all skill levels.

The trail continued to gain popularity and growth until the final camp, Dowling Park was completed in 2010.
