    Well, decided it was time to take the kids kamping again......We have done from the Suwannee Music park to Holton River camp and then to Suwannee State Park.....sooo, we decided to do Hwy 41 bridge to the Woods Ferry River camp and then to Suwannee Music park.......Very  Nice paddle, limestone walls, granite bottom, Hawgs, Deer, Coons, etc.....10 -12 miles in between stops,,,,easy,

    The River Camp Shelters are great and best of all  r  FREE.......just reserve ahead of time.....weekends can be busy, weekdays are dead quiet......Didnt feeesh this time... but saw some Blue gills, Black bass and some huge catfish.... :eek:

    A shallow water bote of anykind will work if u dont like paddling......the water level does get low in the summer, higher in the winter.....  :cool:

    Nice trip and a very timely post. I have a lot of family responsibilities right now but I want to get out to the Suwanee in April. Here is why.

    Be a great mini-rally if you guys want to set one up. I have to play it by ear because of sick family member. I will start another thread about it so this one doesn't get derailed.

    Thanx

    Tom in O twn.......They have great festivals......NO KIDS THOUGH..... ;) :cool:

    The Suwanne Music Park is huge.....It has cabins, rv hook ups, tent areas, they also rent kanoes and will pick u up from wherever u get to......There is also a Custom Tree House built by some guy that travels all over the world building them..it was bigger than my house........

    IMHO the nicest ride is from The Suwanne Music Park to the Suwannee river state park.......21 miles... :cool:

    No kids? Where did you get that?


    http://www.waneefestival.com/faq.html

    Children 5 years old and under will be admitted to the event without a ticket as long as they are with a ticketed adult.

    They even hold a kids music camp at the park each year

    Tom, I interpreted Koby's comment as a friendly warning from someone with kids thats already been to one of these music festivals.
