Spirit of the Road questions
Can I bring my pet to the Rally?
Yes, you can! There is no extra fee for pets. While it states on the venue website that pets are not allowed, we have made sure that our rally attendees can bring their furry family members. It wouldn't be a rally without them! The normal "pet" rules will apply. Please make sure you do not leave your pet unattended, and your pet must be on a leash at all times.
Suwannee County Code Section 14-33 requires all pets to have an ID tag that includes the owner's name and current phone number. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required. You must bring copies of documentation and fill out the venue's Pet Registration Form. Please download, print, and fill out this form before your arrival to expedite the checkin process. Forms will also be available on site.
There are no breed restrictions, but please let common sense apply and do not bring aggressive pets into common areas. Please pick up after your pet. If there are any other questions, just let us know.
What kinds of things will be going on at Spirit of the Road?
RVillage rallies are unique in that our main goal is for attendees to connect and meetup with fellow RVers. Our days and nights will be filled with opportunities for you to meet new friends.
If you are new to rallies, you may be asking, "what is there to do at a rally?". During the day you will find educational opportunities and social gatherings focused on common interests. Vendor Village will also be open. Stop by to find products and services to enhance your RV lifestyle. Take advantage of the opportunity to talk to and learn from company reps in person.
There are also plenty of recreational opportunities available within the 800 acre park. Activities include bike riding and hiking trails throughout the park, canoeing and kayaking on the river, and fishing on the lake.
In the evenings, you will have amazing entertainment opportunities with live music, dancing, eating (BIG potluck!), and our trademark Fire Central gatherings that last long into the night, or as long as you want it to last!
Watch the website for more information.
What if I have special dietary needs?
If you have special dietary needs, you will need to fully attend to those yourself, as we are not providing meals and cannot be responsible for over 1200 individual health issues. We hope you understand.
What if I am handicapped or have mobility issues?
Please contact us directly at email@example.com so we can help you book a suitable site. There will be multiple trams running throughout the park from early morning until after the last planned event. The park is large and lots of parking is available at different activity locations if you choose to drive your car/truck around. You can rent a golf cart or bring your own (must provide proof of insurance and pay a $35 fee). Electric scooters are encouraged as well.
Is there an event app?
The venue's WiFi will not reliably support the large number of people we have coming to our event. Cell phone data can be spotty for some services.
How do I sign up as a vendor?
The first step to becoming a vendor is to fill out our vendor application. You can find the application HERE.
How many people are expected at this rally?
As of this writing, June 2019, we are planning for 600+ rigs and an estimated 1200+ people. There will also be day passes which will add approximately 300 guests per day. We expect to sell out this event so grab your tickets early if you can.
What type of RVers attend RVillage rallies?
RVillage is a completely diverse group of RVers. All style of rigs. All ages, all status of married, single, divorced, widowed, partnered...you name it. We have a growing number of young families many traveling with friends. We are a mixture of full-timers, part-timers, and occasional campers. We also will have many attend who are tent campers and are looking for advice and expertise on their first rig! The most important thing to know is we are all-inclusive. Within RVillage we are all different...but we are all RVers.
What type of things are prohibited?
This is a no gun facility. No weapons of any sort cannot be carried on your person in the park. (campground policy), nudity in public spaces is prohibited, no lewd behavior, no violence, no public drunkenness, no fireworks, no fires outside of designated areas, no clotheslines, no ground tests, no destroying trees or property, no washing RVs or cars in the park. As a good rule of thumb, PLEASE don’t do anything that is not allowed or that would make you ashamed if your family knew you did it.
What type of things are allowed?
Spontaneous Get-Togethers, cameras, phones, bags, RVs in designated camping spots, open toe shoes, smiles, laughter, helping out your neighbor, helping us out if we need your cooperation, cars parked in designated parking areas, a sense of ENTHUSIASM!
Spirit of the suwannee Music park questions
What is the park address?
The address of the park is:
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park
3076 95th Dr.
Live Oak, FL 32060
What is transportation like inside the park?
This park is HUGE! You will not have a problem getting your exercise each day, but when you are tired of walking there are other options. We will have multiple trams running throughout the park from early morning until after the last planned event. The park is large and lots of parking is available at different activity locations. If you drive your car around, the speed limit is 10 MPH. STRICTLY ENFORCED! You can also use your own golf cart, or rent a golf cart on site. If you bring your own golf cart, you must show proof of insurance. If you do not have insurance, the park management can help you. Bicycles are encouraged as they are a great way to get around, get some exercise, and leave a minimal impact on the beautiful park.
Are there showers on site?
Yes, there are multiple buildings with showers and restrooms at the venue for attendees to use. The Spirit of the Suwannee facilities are rustic but clean.
Will there be rental golf carts?
Yes, there are golf carts that can be rented that are owned by the park. You can rent these directly from the park for $35.00 per day and they must be rented for the entire duration of the event. You must call the Country Store to reserve. The phone number is (386)364-4841. Please let them know this is for the RVillage Rally when you reserve. Reserve early as these will probably sell out.
Can I bring my own golf cart?
Yes, there is a park fee of $30.00 that must be paid to the Park Office upon arrival for a use permit. You must also show proof of insurance.
Why do I need insurance for my personal golf cart?
The state of Florida requires that Golf Cart used in public locations be covered by insurance. Because of this our event location must follow these rules. If you do not have insurance but would like to bring your golf cart, you can contact the park directly and one of the staff can help you obtain a temporary policy.
Can I ride my bike?
Yes! Bikes are encouraged in the park. You must wear a helmet when riding.
What kind of weather should we expect?
Historically, the weather has been mild with temperatures in the 70s during the day and in the 50s at night. Perfect weather for gathering around the Firebirds!
Is there a convenient location for shopping near Spirit of the Road
Yes! There is an on-site store that has food, drinks and all kinds of stuff. It is actually a great store compared to other RV parks. There are multiple grocery stores and other shopping options within 15 minutes of the event location. Google "Live Oak, FL shopping" for a more detailed list.
Is there a dump station on-site?
Yes. Several of them. As with any rally, please arrive with your gray and black tanks empty and your water tank full.
Is there a swimming pool on-site?
Yes! There is a nice swimming pool, but no hot tub.
Are there alligators in this park?
As in all of the FL areas where water is present there is the possibility of alligators. This location is on the Suwannee River which has "brackish" water. We saw many people swimming the day we were there but no alligators. But watch out!
Can you kayak or paddle board anywhere nearby?
Yes! The park has access to the Suwannee River and you can bring your own equipment or you can rent equipment for kayaking, paddling, canoes during the event. Call the Canoe Outpost for more information (386)364-4991.
Is there a place for horses?
YES! As a bonus, this campground does have setup for horses, so if you have them, you can bring them! No extra charge!
Can I fly my drone?
No. The flying of drones within the park is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN without prior approval of park management. You may see a film crew flying a drone while you're at the rally. Those have been cleared with the venue and are a special situation.
