About Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park

File 488

Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park lies on 580 beautifully-wooded acres down along the banks of Old Florida’s Suwannee River. Along with the camping, there are nearly 12 miles of trails suitable for hiking, biking, horseback riding and nature exploring. Bring along a fishing pole and wet a line from the dock on Rees Lake. Canoe and bike rentals are available at the on-site canoe outpost. Or take a dip in the nearby Suwannee Springs.

Seating
Festival-style seating will be in effect; first come, first served. Please bring lawn chairs and blankets. The amphitheater seating area must be cleared at the end of each day. No chairsFile 420
can be left overnight. For the convenience of all, we request that all unoccupied chairs may be used during daylight hours until the owner returns. Amphitheater seating area will open to place your chairs at 9am Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  No coolers, glass, alcoholic beverages, food or drink (other than water) may be brought into the festival area.  Please be prepared for security search of all bags and packs.  If you have special food needs, please go by the Festival Office to get a Food Pass.

Dog Policy: No Dogs Allowed
The central issue is simply one of safety — for the dogs and for the people.  
No dogs are allowed either in the campground or the festival areas. The only exceptions are for verifiable handicap-access canines or park residents.

Smoking
A non-smoking area has been designated in the amphitheater floor area between the sound board and the stage.   Also, the Music Hall and designated areas at the Meadow, Porch and Old Florida Stages are non-smoking.  You may smoke in the elevated area of the amphitheater.  No matter where you smoke while in the festival or the campground, please place your butts in an appropriate trash receptacle!  Thanks for your cooperation.

Drum Camp
Drum camp, hosted by our Paralounge volunteers,  is an area complete with a drumFile 421 circle ready for a bon fire.  Please set up your camp in that area if you want to drum at your
campsite, or go there when you're ready to jam!  No drumming will be allowed in other areas of the campground.
