Set on the banks of the beautiful Suwannee River, the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground offers camping and live entertainment in a majestic setting. Massive moss-covered Live Oaks set the stage for your adventures.
The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground is located in northern Florida, just south of the Georgia border. The closest town is Live Oak (appropriately enough), while Jacksonville is 90 miles to the west. Correspondent Casita Dean journeyed to this campground for an egg camper rally for fans and owners of small, fiberglass RVs.
Campground Details: Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground
The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground is one mammoth park, offering 600 campsites and 800 acres of primitive camping. Cabins and a treehouse are also available. Those traveling with horses will even find space to board them and trails to explore.
Expect to pay around $25 for a primitive site up to $45 a night for a site with full hookups and 50 amps of electricity (rates may be higher during special events). Back-in sites are primarily found along the perimeter, with pull-thrus in the middle. The online reservation system makes it easy to book your sites. A number of maps on the website detail the various areas of the park.

With “music park” in the name, you might expect to find music in the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground, and you won’t be disappointed. Seasonally, live entertainment is offered three nights a week. Get your groove on with tribute bands, open mic nights, and country, rock, and pop offerings. The campground hosts several music festivals throughout the year.
Onsite, you’ll find a full slate of unique offerings, including a bat house, bird sanctuary, craft village, barn museum, and more. More traditional amenities include a pool, hiking trails, disc golf, and golf cart rentals. Its location on the Suwannee River allows for canoeing and fishing in what Dean described as the river’s “iced-tea colored waters.”
