The Spirit of Suwanee Music Park is a spectacular wilderness wonderland with something for all ages. On the banks of the Suwanee River, the grounds are littered with tents and campers of all shapes and sizes. Children zip by on bicycles and scooters while older kids move through the loop on golf carts, looking to pick up hitchhikers on their way to the main stage.

Whether you sleep in a camper with pull outs and cable television or a single person tent in the bird sanctuary, everyone eventually ends up in hammocks and lawn chairs right next to each other.
