Very Nice Campground
We selected Suwannee River State Park because we planned on kayaking the rivers in the area and we prefer to stay at state parks when we can. The facilities at the park were nice, although we did not use the showers. The sites are nice, with tree cover and some level of distance between most sites. We had a corner site that was exceptionally large and was a pull-thru, an added bonus. The entire loop is .3 miles, so overall it's not very large. Each site has full hookups, but some people complained that the distance to the sewer hookup was too far, we did notice that most people needed longer sewer hoses. The sewer was also high, making it difficult for liquids to flow easily into it. This was a minor annoyance, considering all the other nice things about the park. They have a washer and dryer outside of the restrooms that worked fairly well.
This is a pretty park, but there isn't a lot to do in the general area. There are several short trails, which I recommend. The Lime Sink Run Trail is especially nice. There is no real place for bicycling, but the younger kids enjoyed biking the campground loop.
There are no restaurants nearby, the closest is The Red Onion in Lee (10 miles) and a few restaurants in Madison (10 miles). The Red Onion is in gas station, but is a pretty good little diner, in Madison we enjoyed Ken's Bar-B-Que. Live Oak is about 25 miles in the other direction, but you have more choices there.
We stayed here for 11 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I hope that we can return sometime.
