Has anyone stayed at this park?

I check Reserve America, but evidently their info on sizes of sites and/pull thrus is pretty inaccurate!

I called the ranger and he said site 20 is NOT a pull thru -reserve america says it is.

He says sie 21 & 28 are pull thrus, but I go to reserve america and they are NOT for fifth wheels or motorhomes, as they are only about 12 feet wide!

Ranger said we would be ok in sites 20-28...........none of this seems to match up! I'm confused - can anyone help?

Listen to the ranger. He is at the park. We stayed there 2 years ago and had a good time. Very quiet and nice. Not much to do but very restful.

Jody and Jeff,

DO NOT CAMP HERE, REPEAT, DO NOT CAMP HERE. The is the worst maintained CG in the States CG system IMHO. The sites are not level, they have big holes and they do not cut the tree limbs when I was there last year. I did not stay because it was so bad. The spring is beautiful as it flows in the river along with the walkway. Just visit the park, do not stay here. Right across the river on the road from Old Town about 20 miles down is Yellow Jacket CG, a private CG. Nice here with a pool, fishing, shade and etc. Its a little pricey though. s/Toby

I put my brain in gear before I engaged my senses. though you were referring to Manatee Springs SP rather than Suwanne River SP. Sorry about the mis-information. I have not been to this park in 30 or more years. So I could not give you a real review. However, I have been to the Stephen Foster Statre Park just north of Lake City on the river and off the first exit on i-75. The sites while they are dirt (hard packed), are level. This park is well worth the visit. While it has dirt sites and paved roads, everything is very neat. The limbs are cut grass is well trimmed, and the sites are level. No problem for big rigs. They have a meseum on SFSP as well as an overlook over the river. This park is a CG, but is really a museum park. You will love it here. Nice bike trails, activities provided by park staff. Cool under the shade. Do not forget to visit the rapids in the river ( a long walk this time of year) Very interesting. I would rate this park a 6 or 7. s/Toby

We stayed there last year after the renovations to the campground. I was the one to tell you to call the office as RA is wrong. Here is the scoop on sites:

We have a 35 ft MH but have previously owned a 35 ft 5th wheel so we always are looking to make sure we fit length and width wise into sites.

Here are sites that would fit a 35 ft or less RV:
Site #1
Sites #2,3 are paved and are supposed to be handicapped but can be booked if there are no others to fit your rig.
Site 6,9,10,14,15,20(it is not a PT)
site #21 is a PT
site #22
site #27 is paved
site #28 is a PT

all sites 21-30 are on a double wide road so if you have to have extra room to maneuver there is plenty there. Be sure to bring extra hoses, especially for the sewer as it is at the front of the site and is higher grade than normal.

Have a great time!
