Welcome to the Suwannee River Chamber of Commerce in Suwannee, Florida
Secluded at the heart of the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge, this unique small community overlooks the river and gulf, salt and fresh water creeks and man-made canals. Experience nature at its untouched best while enjoying our waterfront accommodations, great seafood, down-home restaurants, marinas and expert fishing guides.
One of the largest undeveloped delta-estuarine systems in the United States, the area is protected by the 52,935-acre Lower Suwannee Wildlife Refuge. The refuge was established in 1979 and covers both sides of the Suwannee River upriver for almost fifteen miles and 26 miles of Gulf habitat. The overall goal of the refuge is to provide optimum conditions to manage and protect the natural heritage of the area, while giving as much public access as possible.
