The fabulous Spirit of Suwannee Music camp resort, located in Live Oak, Florida is a wonderful place to bring your whole family for a weekend of fun and relaxation "Florida Style". From their website, "The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is a resort and campground in the heart of the world famous Suwannee River recreational area. The Spanish moss-draped forest of more than 700 acres, a cypress tree lined, spring-fed lake, fresh water fishing and canoeing, wildlife habitat and bird watching are sure to please."
They have so many family friendly activities, this is a great place to camp! They have an SOS Cafe & Restaurant, open 7 days. They have a swimming pool and ice cream shop. They have a country store, miniature golf, frisbee golf, geocaching and a Craft Village. In the craft village they have crafters demonstrating how to make such things as wax candles, weaving, woodworking, and more! You can hike the well marked trails, go canoeing on the Suwannee River, go fishing on the river, or their lake, horseback riding and more! They have a horse camp, so you can bring your horses and camp comfortably, then ride the many trails adjacent to the park through the water management area right along the Suwannee River.
The calendar of events at the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park is packed with fun things to do all year round! They have a Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camp that is FREE for kids ages 5 to 17. This 2 day event happens 4 times throughout the year. Kids will be taught to play an instrument during several classes, and then there will be a concert Sunday afternoon, where all the kids perform their newly learned music skills. Four instructional sessions, arts and crafts, dinner on Saturday night and a Sunday afternoon concert. How fun! Bring your own instrument, and if you do not have one, one will be provided. Parents attend the classes with their kids!
There are so many festivals lined up here, I cannot decide which one I want to attend next! Check out the lineup here! :
I just can't say enough about this wonderful place to visit. It was well worth the travel to get there. Their is an old fashioned Farm Days and Swap Meet November 26th-28th that looks REALLY fun. This heritage festival is filled with old time bluegrass music and craft demonstrations, petting farm, kids games and crafts, tractor pulls and cane boil demonstrations,
You can rent a golf cart to get around the expansive park activities for very reasonable rates.
We will be back!!!
