Stephen FosteR folk culture center state park
Situated on the banks of the legendary Suwannee River, Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park honors the memory of American composer Stephen Foster, who wrote "Old Folks at Home," the song that made the river famous.
The museum features exhibits about Foster's most famous songs and his music can be heard emanating from the park's 97-bell carillon throughout the day.
At the Park Store and Craft Square, visitors can watch or participate in a variety of demonstrations and workshops. Including, quilting, weaving, blacksmithing, jewelry making, and more.
Hiking, bicycling, canoeing and wildlife viewing are popular activities. Miles of trails wind through some of the most scenic areas of North Florida.
For overnight stays, visitors can RV or tent camp in our 45-site campground, all have water and electric hookups or stay in one of our two-bedroom vacation cabins.
Every Memorial Day weekend (last weekend in May), the park hosts the Florida Folk Festival. Other special events include concerts, weekend retreats, a regional quilt show, a holiday light display and an antique tractor show.
