Many people are attracted to the White Springs community because of the historic Suwannee River which flows right through the Town. The river promises excitement and entertainment for White Springs as well as the surrounding counties. Offering opportunity for the boating enthusiast, the canoeist, divers, and much more. Many enjoy simply floating along the river banks fishing for red-bellies, brim, mullet and catfish. Divers come from all over the country to dive in the many springs that spawn off of the river. There are plenty of caves to explore along the Suwannee River.
Relax and step away from the hustle of Lake City by spending a day at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. At the park, visitors can hike through Florida’s forests, take a lazy canoe ride down the river or listen to the park’s carillon bells.
Situates on more than 80 acres in White Springs, the Stephen Foster Folk Center hosts the annual Folk festival.
On the banks of the Suwannee River, the center honors the memory of Foster, an American composer who wrote “Old Folks At Home.” The song made the river famous.
