4 Reviews of Fanning Springs State Park
Very beautiful spring on Suwanne River

Located 20 minutes from Cedar Key, Horseshoe beach, and Stienhatchee it's a very relaxing get away with a beautiful spring. Swimming is great and snorkeling.

Love Fanning!

Love Fanning! Accessible by river or car. Beautiful grounds. We’ve gone there every summer for 20+ years

A nice little spot

A nice little camping spot with other activities.

Rules Rules

So, this is a place if you do not arrive by boat, bicycle or on foot, plan to put out cash for a 2 night minimum stay for a cabin rental. We came in by kayak so we did spent 1 night in their primitive spot. No cabins for us. They do have 5 though if you are interested - they are very nice, fully furnished, fireplaces, all the swag you would expect. You have to book cabins very early and in the summer the spring this place can be quite crowded.

In the winter months it can be quite special! There will be morning mist coming off the spring, manatee hanging out in the warm waters, and peaceful surroundings.

This location pretty strict on the rules and rangers that manage the place make sure you know them.

Primitive site (located on bank above launch) is not far from the river. Only 1 fire ring and they ask not to have a group larger than 8 at the primitive came (we had 2 so no worries). We neglected to make reservations in advance (as we were not sure what day we were coming in) but there was no one else there luckily. There is a bathroom and access to water a bit away from camp also. Only a cold water shower is available.
