Well kept park with nice camping sites. The park had closed trails due to tree removal but it was still nice. The historical information about Stephen Foster was excellent. The Suwanee river was very low, It was almost a creek.

I really liked the park. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays and park staff were quite friendly. The dioramas and exhibits were excellently done. But the depiction of slavery as rather benign made me a little squeamish. Same with the parade of "Jeannies". Info...More
