Boating & Canoeing
Paddling
Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is a system of public and private recreation and visitor facilities focused on paddling the Suwannee River from White Springs to the coastal town of Suwannee.

The Wilderness Trail was designed around recreation hubs, such as state parks and small towns, which feature activity centers, visitor services, and proximity to the river. From these hubs visitors can explore the surrounding areas by canoe, boat, bicycle, horseback, or foot.

The District has partnered with Florida State Parks to build comfortable cabins and rustic river camps for overnight stays along the Wilderness Trail. River camps, accessible only by foot or from the river, offering screened sleeping platforms, screened pavilions for dining and group activities, and restrooms are located at the following District properties:

  • Woods Ferry
  • Holton Creek
  • Peacock Slough
  • Adams Tract
  • Dowling Park
  • Fletcher Landing (proposed)
