What should I bring?

Sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and camera. If you have a waterproof case for your camera I would recommend bringing it as well.

What should I wear?

I recommend to dress in layers. Winter mornings can be cold but, the afternoons can be warm.  Shorts and swim wear are comfortable in spring and summer.  Bring a light weight shirt or jacket to protect you from the sun or occasional rain shower.  Wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet and that stay securely on your feet.


Where can I find a place to stay?

Stephen Foster Folk Cultural Center State Park has camping, RV hookups and cabins.


Suwannee River State Park offers camping, RV hookups and cabins.


White Springs Bed and Breakfast.


Holiday Inn Express in Live Oak.



What is "Blackwater"?

Blackwater is a term that refers to the tea colored water that is typical of the rivers and swamps in north Florida and south Georgia.  The water is colored by natural tannins that leach from the roots of trees, most notably cypress and oak trees.
