Located just north of Live Oak, Fla, the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is a one-of-a-kind music park and premier campground nestled on the shady banks of the historic, tea-colored Suwannee River in North Florida. The Spirit of the Suwannee is proud to host a variety of events throughout the year. In addition to these events, the park offers live music during the week in the Music Hall and a natural amphitheater for outdoor music festivals.
This place was amazing! It just has this magical vibe about it. The people are friendly, there's plenty to see, and it's just an all around great place. I can just image the festivals are even more killer. It's close to many of Floridas springs as well. Definitely a must see
There are backcountry tent sites to full hookups; or if you prefer you can rent a cabin or tree house. There's a pool and game room if you like, or if you want to rent a canoe and float the beautiful Suwannee River, that's available at the canoe outpost. Horses and riding lessons are available at the stables.
Live Music is a presence at the park which hosts weekend shows at the restaurant and bar, and the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is host to several big music festivals of all genres.

We adore this place!!! We have been during Wanee Festival and just for regular camping. We can not wait to take our kids here. There’s just something about it that’s magical!
There is no place like Suwannee! Whether you go during the insanely spectacular music festivals (such as Hula or Wanee) or you just go during the off times to camp, this place is pure magic. The old oaks and Spanish moss make the place appear to have a mystical aspect to it. The tree houses are totally worth renting if you can and the primitive camping is convenient to all of the amenities. There is floating on the river, music performances all the time, and some of the best trails for a nice stroll. I LOvE Suwannee!
This campground just has so much to offer. All throughout the year you can catch various musical fest. At Christmas the park host a spectacular light show. During the music festivals camping is offered for more than 600 hookup sites and 800 acres of primitive camping. The park also host a canoe outpost so you can boat or paddle into the park. The camp outpost people are one of a kind. They are super friendly knowledgeable and helpful. They will shuttle you to your destination or come pick you up. The park has a restaurant that on Thursday’s you can join in on some kareoke or catch a band. The park is horse and golf cart friendly. Not only is this a great park to stay with loads to do but they are also environmentaly conscious. The park works extremely hard to recycle and reuse. They have a whole team dedicated to just that. We have been down the Suwannee many times and always take out at this awesome park. On the way down there are numerous campsites some with bathhouses potable water and electricity. They also have closed in shelters that are all free to use . It helps if you make a reservation otherwise it is first come first serve. We have always had a tremendous time kayaking down the Wannee!!

Spirit of suwanne is a favorite campground for our family! Always fun things going on for adults and kids. Weve visited during holidays and their music festivals. They have a pool, a river with a beach and acres and acres to explore. They also have a bat house and you can watch the bats fly in and out twice a day. There is primitive camping, electric/water sites and even cabins for rent. I would highly recommend!
I stayed here for Wanee music festival in 2016 so the crowds were not representative of non-event camping, but whether for an event or simply a relaxed trip, this campground is huge and has a wide variety of camping options from cabins to hook-up sites to primitive field and forest camping.
The river was a wonderful way to relax and cool off. The shuttle to the river was great as it is quite a walk depending on where you're camped. From the outer reaches of camping to main stage for music (or the restaurant/store/etc) could be a 45 minute walk. I was maybe 25 minutes from main stage and less than 10 from showers. I sometimes lucked into free golf cart rides from passersby.
Facilities were relatively well-kept for such a large festival with constant demands on toilets and showers. It was very dusty and if it is dry when you're there you may want to cover your face with a bandana if you'll be walking down the dirt roads much. Staff were very helpful, friendly, and available.
Plan to explore! There is a small lake, various paths criss-crossing around, a bat house, the Suwanee river, and a disc golf course among many other sites/activities. Will definitely return for other festivals but would also camp here when there isn't any special event for a quieter getaway.
