We knew that after Thanksgiving weekend we’d be heading over to the Palatka area to attend our first Foretravel Rally. We became members of the Foretravel Florida Motorcade as a result of our membership in the Foretravel Motorcade Club. We’d met number of members at a similar rally in association with the RV Supershow in Tampa prior to finding our own Foretravel.
Since Drew needed to get back to his job we decided to leave Rocky Bayou a day early and see if we could get a “walk up” site at Suwannee River State Park near Live Oak, Florida. In all our years of Florida camping and canoe trips along the Suwannee going back to college days, we’d never been inside the gates of Suwannee River State Park. What a surprise we were in for.
This 33 site, full service (including sewer) campground is small by most state park standards but is a small part of the much larger state park holdings at the confluence of the Suwannee and Withlacoochee River.
This unique riverine phenomena ends the Withlacoochee’s path (center) from northwest of Nashville, Georgia before merging into the Suwannee (photo right and left) within the park.
As you’ll see in the pictures and video link below there are wonderful hikes within the park. We spent 2 full days and still felt like there was more to see within the park and we know that there’s more to see in neighboring Live Oak.
