Lazy Days and Relaxing Nights on the Suwannee River

With the warm weather at its peak, it’s time to start thinking about getting back to nature as a family. Whether you like to pitch your own tent or get a good night’s sleep in an air-conditioned cabin, we found a place that’s great for all kinds of families.  My family of three enjoyed a carefree weekend at the Suwannee River Rendezvous Campground and were pleasantly surprised at all the amenities that they offer.  For starters, we are first time travel trailer campers and their friendly staff was more than happy to assist us with set up.  That was refreshing and took a bit of the stress off us being new to travel trailer life.  Once we set up camp, we went swimming in their pool to cool off.  Later that evening after cooking out on the grill they provided, and sitting by the fire roasting marshmallows, we joined the other campers for karaoke at the club house.  Other fun activities included Pigeon Racing and Chicken Poop Bingo.

Families will love this park which is located right in the heart of rural North Florida and has one of the most beautiful freshwater springs that feeds directly into the Suwannee River.  The great thing is that they can accommodate anyone.  Whether you are looking for cottages, full hook-up camp sites or secluded tent camping, they will have what you are looking for.  Explore nearby walking trails along the river, swim in crystal clear springs, visit Grandma Susie’s Cook Shack for a great meal, or relax at your campsite.  Prices are extremely reasonable, the staff is friendly and the place is beautifully secluded.  Our next trip will be soon and we plan to rent kayaks and float down the Suwannee River.  If you’d like to take your family for a great weekend away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy getting back to nature, come visit the Suwannee River Rendezvous Campground.  To find out more, just go to and begin a new adventure.
