Upon arrival, your RV will have its own pull-through site with enough room to fit the vehicle as well as a car if need be.
Every site comes with a picnic table, fire ring, free WiFi, and satellite TV to enjoy once things begin to wind down for the night.
From there you will see our beautiful pool complex containing a large swimming pool and two spas. We keep it open and heated year round unless the day’s temperature does not break 60, which isn’t often.
Once, you’ve seen that and you’re all settled in, you can take a ride in a canoe or kayak along the historic Suwannee River. While out you can either fish or take in the amazing wildlife in the area.
We also offer activities on the weekend. On Fridays come play Bingo or sing along with Susie at the lodge. Then on Saturday, head over for some Karaoke and trivia that are sure to be a lot of fun. The lodge is also available for cards, games and parties as well.
Also, if you happen to run out of anything while staying at the resort, there is a Wal-Mart, a grocery store, and a hardware store only 30 minutes away.

You’ve got your reel and your bait, and you’re excited and ready to head out for your fishing trip.
But wait! A little extra preparation can go a long way toward helping you have a good time on your adventure. Make sure you keep a few extra tools in your tackle box so you can be ready for whatever the river brings your way!
Sometimes you need a little help to get your bait and tackle ready to go. Sometimes it’s tough getting a hook from your fish’s lips – especially if it has long teeth. Sometimes, your cast might not go as planned, leaving you with a hook caught in your jeans. A good pair of needlenose pliers can help you in all these situations and more.
This one may go without saying. A good rust-resistant knife can help you clean fish, cut lines, slice bait, and accomplish any number of other common tasks you might face during a fishing trip.
Insect Repellant, Sunscreen and Pain Relievers
These items are guaranteed to come in handy, but they can be easy to forget. Don’t let your day be ruined by mosquitos, sunburn and headaches. You can stop these issues in their tracks, even if you’re miles away from your medicine cabinet.
Lip Grip with Scale and a Ruler
Most anglers don’t intend to ignore length and weight restrictions when they go fishing, but let’s face it: sometimes even our best estimates can be a little inaccurate. Pack a good lip grip with a scale to measure your catch’s weight, and a cheap old ruler to check its length. You can even take photos with your ruler for friends who may doubt your fish tales later!
This is a great item to have around on evening fishing trips, especially when you wait just a little too long to call it quits for the night. A little extra light can go a long way.
First Aid Kit
No one plans on getting hurt, but cuts, bumps and bruises are a fact of life. It’s always better to be safe, rather than sorry!
While you’re at it, go ahead and prevent those cuts and scrapes with a good, strong pair of gloves. It’s nice to have a first aid kit, but it’s better if you don’t need it in the first place.
Ready to put your tackle box to good use? Give us a call today to schedule your next fishing trip on the beautiful Suwannee River!
When visiting us at Suwannee River Rendezvous, guests get to see the beautiful Suwannee River and take in the beautiful water and scenic sights of northern Florida. However, have you ever wondered where it all comes from? Well, the answer lies in the Suwannee Springs.
For those who may not know, the Suwannee network of springs covers a vast span throughout the region and feeds into the river network, providing the waters that sustain the river as it flows from the headwaters in Georgia all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
One of the most prominent places to see these springs is the Suwannee Springs State Park, managed by the Suwannee River Water Management District. Located about 40 minutes from Suwannee River Rendezvous, the site features six different springs for people to take in and enjoy.
Once you arrive, you will notice all of the springs flow outward in a southwest direction, which funnels them into the Suwannee River itself. You will also notice that all six are clustered within the same 100-foot span of sandy terrain at the base of a 35-foot high bank stretching right along the south shore of the Suwannee River. The main spring is something to behold as well with its unique location. You can’t miss the sight of this spring, notably located within rock walls constructed as part of a bathhouse from the late 19th century.
The Suwannee Springs are more than just a historic site. Visitors can also enjoy swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and canoeing, hiking, a picnic area and trails for horse riding. All of these activities offer the perfect opportunity to get out and explore the area. Along with those great activities, the Suwannee Springs also are home to a wide variety of wildlife as well. Some of the animals you may see while there include gopher tortoise, gopher frog, Suwannee cooter, deer, turkeys and squirrels.
The river itself is also lined with rich history tracing back through generations of settlers in the region. As the state park’s brochure notes, Native American tribes in the region relied on the river for fresh water and access to game as far back as 12,000 years ago. In the 1500s, Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto passed through the region, and in the 1800s, the region became populated by American settlers. There are also remnants of the Civil War that can be seen in places, including earthworks and other constructions that formerly were part of bridges and defense positions manned by Confederate troops.
If you want to explore the Suwannee River area and it’s great history, make your reservations at Suwannee River Rendezvous today. We have one of the springs that feed the river right here on site – Convict Spring – and several more within a short drive from the resort. We have plenty of space for RV and tent camping as well as a range of cabins and lodges for guests. For more information or to book your stay, call us at 386-294-2510!
With the spring semester just about half-way over, that means spring break isn’t too far away.
During this time, many will simply head home for some rest and relaxation while others will be looking to get away and enjoy themselves.
If you are a part of the latter, then the Suwannee River Rendezvous might be just what you’re looking for.
Now, at first, heading out to the wilderness might not be the first choice for college students but we offer a wide variety of fun activities that are sure to keep you and your friends more than entertained.
If you want to hit the water, we offer canoe and kayak rentals that will allow you to travel along the river. While on the river, you will be able to take in all of the beautiful sights that surround it.
There is also a great deal of wildlife around the river as well-meaning you might be able to get a glimpse of some of the animals that call the area home.
We also offer fishing for anyone looking for something more adventurous during their break.
While on the boat you will have an opportunity to catch numerous different fish including Large Mouth Bass, Suwannee Bass, Mullet, Bream and Channel Catfish.
We also offer affordable lodging as well. Whereas booking a hotel in tropical location might cost an arm and a leg, our pricing won’t cause you to break the bank just for a little fun on spring break. This will allow you more money for extra activities will on break, creating an overall more memorable experience.
