You won't find many places in the state of Florida more historic than Suwannee River State Park, named after one of the main rivers that flow through the grounds. Bring your pooch to the park and learn for yourselves why this land has been so sought after through the years.
The campground here is made up of 24 campsites situated around a loop, all of which have full hookup options. If cabins are more your thing, Suwannee River has you covered with five different structures to pick from -- though you won't be allowed to bring your pupper into the buildings. Each of the campsites has picnic tables and fire rings, and you'll be able to buy firewood without even leaving the park. Make sure that your rig is under 45 feet before bringing it to the park -- or else you may find you don't fit on your lot!
To get into the park, you'll have to purchase a ParkPass permit for $5. Campsite fees are a standard rate of $22, while cabins go for $100 per night. If you'd like to reserve ahead of time, be prepared to dish out an additional $6.70 for the transaction.
Once you've paid your fees and set up your camp, you and your pooch can get down to the important stuff -- having fun outside together! Check out the daunting Big Oak Trail, which spans for 12.5 miles. Or, for something a little less sweat-worthy, go for a sunny meander with your fur-kid on the Sandhill Trail and add a history lesson to your hike when you arrive at one of Florida's oldest cemeteries. For the avid angler, the Suwannee River is an excellent place to cast a line or two, so remember to bring your rod and tackle box!
Doggos are gladly welcome at this Florida state park, as long as they stay on-leash for the duration of their trip. Also, be sure to clean up any mess they may leave behind to help keep this area the slice of outdoor heaven it is.
