The campground was nice but it is not a resort in my opinion it doesn't really have any other amenities then an above average campground for the price they charge. The campground is hard to maneuver through due to the layout of the sites the pull thru site we had was a 90 degree turn to enter and depart if any other vehicles are parked nearby it makes it almost impossible to enter or leave your site towing a travel trailer or driving a motorhome. One of the stalls in the men's bathroom was out of TP for two days and the showers needed a good cleaning. The pool was nice and the beach being directly across the road was a plus. All in all we had a pleasant experience while staying there. - EJS4029

We made our reservations at close to the last minute. There was plenty of room during the Summer here. Making the reservations was very easy. Most of the sites are pull-through. All are full hook-ups. This looks like a brand new resort, but is in fact quite old. They obviously have made many upgrades. The sites are all concrete and have patios with a picnic table on it. There are plenty of palm trees and shrubs at the sites. The pool was a good size. The staff was very friendly and helpful Although this isn't the "touristy" part of Florida, there still are plenty of things to do, great places to eat, plenty of places to drink, nice beaches, nice biking and hiking areas, etc. St George Island is only about 30 minutes to the West. If you are into lighthouses there are 4 within 1.5 hours drive in either direction. One is just down the street (see photos). There is also a military museum within walking distance. This is one of those lovely "Best Kept Secrets" in Florida. We will likely be back. - ben31rv

We stayed on the east side (Haven area) for 3 nights. This side of the resort can accomodate longer RVs. The resort is in a handy location along Highway 98 close to a public beach. A dog run is available on the park's west side, as is a pool, laundry and small rec area. I felt that some upkeep was needed - weed pulling, etc. There were several boats on trailers parked with RV rigs which made the navigating a bit cumbersome. - gbburgess

As in most campgrounds, the showers and restrooms could use some cosmetics. There was a 10-15 acre lake with decent fishing. Host was a big help in all areas of interest. Grounds were well kept. - Philtoole

Spacious sites in a forested remote setting. Bring plenty of bug spray. A few TV stations were our only link to the outside world. - HikerBoricua

Arrived to find they had no record of my reservation and another camper was occupying my site. The host was not professional like other federal parks. She wasn't even wearing shoes. People are clearly living out of this park. Beer cans and trash around.
Lot spacing was very close. Mostly shady dirt sites.
Everything was odd. Seems like a good place to get hyjacked or ambushed. I warned you. - My camp reviews

Roads are terrible, not close to anything, left a day early because of yellow flies. Not really big rig friendly, worst state park we have eber stayed. - lwabend

Nice park with small campground of only 30 sites, most sites have plenty of shade. Watch out for the biting flies in May, we gave up and left a day early, they swarmed us every time we stepped out of the camper. White squirrels are cool, but don't leave any food out, they get into everything. As others have said, take it slow going in, the roads look like the surface of the moon. We would go back but only during a cooler, less buggy time of year. - Brave

This Park is nice, but the camp site are wired and small. The road in the campground is bad, very bad. Lots of bumps and potholes. The camp site we stayed in was nice and big (probably the only one). The good side is that the campground is on the water. Further down from the campground s some good places to fish, (I didn't catch anything). Now the bad side. The town sucks. The took my brand new F150 to Walmart for the first oil change. Well to make a long story short, I had to sue Walmart because they messed up my truck trying to do the oil change. The back country service guys couldn't figure out how to do the oil change on my truck. They have no good restaurants in town and the Park is a long ways away. - MichaelW

DO NOT use GPS to find this place; ours tried to take us down a narrow, CLOSED road. Use Google Earth to locate it or just stop at city hall, as we finally did. There are no internal park roads, you just drive across the grass to any available grass site and the manager will stop by to pick up payment (he lives in the park). We camped in a tree-shaded, FHU site next to the fence and the street to the park, but there was little traffic noise. For the price, it was the best bargain of our 5500-mile trip. - fanrgs

E/W sites on riverbank are beautiful, but probably tight for rigs longer than 35 feet or so. Full hookup sites along fence line by road (quiet road) can handle longer rigs. No reservations. First-come, first-served. Property caretaker will drop by for fee. Decent shade. Good Verizon signal. Just a couple of OTA TV channels. Boat ramp and fishing dock.
I would have ranked this park higher but the bathrooms were really filthy. Hopefully this is a temporary situation, easily fixed by park management if they want to.
Dump station is actually not in the campground. It is down the road a little bit, just past the large ball field/running track next to the campground. If you were coming at it from the wrong direction, it would not be easy for a longer rig to turn around to get in the right position for dumping unless you were to drive past it, circle a block somewhere, then come back. - aowcarol

We stayed here for 3 nights on Memorial Day weekend. Our site was right on the bank of the Ochlockonee River with a great scenic view and a short walk from the dock. We camped here in a 40' fifth wheel and had no problem at all with access to the park and the sites.
The sites on the River have electric & water but there are full-hookup sites along the road at the front of the park. We much preferred the river front sites.
Overall, this is a great place to spend a few days. It is a quick run down to Carabelle and Appalachicola where there are numerous great seafood restaurants. The only place to eat in Sopchoppy is the pizza place in the center of town and open only on the weekends, but they do serve some great food!
The Sopchoppy campground host does a super job and treats his guests like family. - Cjackg

This park is relatively new, beside a golf course. If you stay there the greens fees are free, you only need to pay for the cart. Some of the sites are concrete pads with a grill and patio chairs included, these sites cost more. Our rate is the average of two nights at Passport America and one night at their regular rate of $45. Our site was back in, level gravel and we were able to get satellite reception even though they have cable TV. The wifi worked well and ATT cell service wasn't very strong. They are currently building a bath house and laundry room. At this time there is no pool or pool access as their website indicates. - Traveler23

Spent 5 days here, 2 at the PA rate. Would not stay here again. Not that it is a "bad" park, but it is not worth the cost. Owner and manager were both cordial. Only sites available were on the front row, under the Live Oaks so there was a LOT of road noise. Sites are VERY narrow and closely spaced. Wifi was useless inside the RV and practically useless outside the RV. Sewer connection was well above grade and I had to lift the hose to drain during dumping. No fenced dog run, but there is a packed-sand road that gets little traffic adjacent to the park, so walking the dog isn't a problem. I did not see any dog piles left behind in the campground. The restaurant mentioned in other reviews is closed with no plans to re-open. Sand Marsh Point beach is only 10 minutes south on 98. It is a nice, small beach. Stop at the welcome center, about 2 miles north of the park on 98. Lots of area info available. - TH travelers

We only stayed here because we were visiting our nephew who has the local marina. What a hidden jewel this little area is. We fell in love with the area & the people. The RV park was not deluxe but the showers were new & clean & the new laundry room was nice & the best washers & dryers for $1.25 The owners are friendly & very helpful as is the handyman. The owners wife runs the little restaurant in front of the park & they were always busy. This is a delightful place to stay & I would recommend it to anyone!! - Sharon Hendricks

At first I was not impressed, the door going into the office is broke and it's disheveled inside, but the people could not have been nicer. We parked in a pull-thru just off the road, and it was shady and wide, but very sandy..not paved. I had asked to use the fitness center I read about and rolled my eyes when they told me they didn't think the 2 pieces of equipment worked, and they were blocked in by a bunch of junk...BUT I WAS WRONG. They are undergoing a total remodeling of their community room and that is the reason it was blocked, and they cleared it out immediately. The recumbent bike was working fine and not rickety like some RV parks, it was a nice one. Plus the handyman who let me in was so nice and friendly and wanted to make sure I was comfortable. We had not planned on staying but one night, but decided to stay an extra day and ride the motorcycle to Apalachicola, about 50 miles away. My husband first wanted to move because it was dusty and we were right on the road, but did anyways. On our motorcycle ride we did go past several other RV parks between Panacea and Apalachicola. These appeared to be much fancier, but when I checked, they were at least twice the price. I guess for what we wanted, Panacea was great. Water pressure and taste was good, wifi was great and even though there was a $50 deposit for the cable box, there was no problem getting the deposit back early. There is also a nice little cafe open for breakfast and lunch from 7 am to 3 pm. I went in to tell the owner we were going to stay another day and saw some of their breakfasts....they looked great! Nothing fancy here, but we would return in a heartbeat! Just wish they had a pool. - Ginny H

Great experience! We camped along the waterfront, across from the swimming pool. Spacious lots. We chose a shady spot. Enjoyed our time here very much. - charthegar

We were in a pull-in site in Tier A, right on the water so the view out the front window was simply amazing! Easy to find, friendly staff. Utilities worked well. Would probably be tight quarters if park was full. Will definitely stay again...longer than 3 days next time! - CanDo

50 amp, FHU site directly on waterfront. Wonderful views of Dog and St. George Islands from any Tier "A" site. This is a well run, clean campground and our 3rd trip here. We will return to enjoy the view. Cable TV and WIFI included. Very friendly, helpful staff. Sites are crushed shell and sand not gravel although I checked gravel in the choice box (below) there are no selections for shell. - Bob & Stephanie

We stayed here a year ago, and this review is pretty much the same. You can't beat the view if you get a Tier A site. If in a MH, you drive in to your spot, so you face the water & have the view out the front. We had site #35, which is an end site, so we also had views out the curbside of the coach. Site #50 is also an end site with views out the road side. This is a no frills park that is very relaxing with nothing much to do but fish & read. If you want activities, this isn't the place. Carrabelle is small & charming with a couple of restaurants, grocery, Ace, and a marina. We had good Verizon service with ample cable channels. WiFi was good with an occasional slow down. FHU site was crushed shells and level. Sites are fairly close, but ok for us. Bring insect repellant as the no-seeums were out. Didn't have them a year ago, so I guess it just depends. No swimming beach, but can walk the shoreline at low tide with the dog. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.

We stayed the month of February. Very nice park. Maybe 27 sites. Lovely main road made of brick pavers. $80 Palm trees and sea oates. All sites are gravel and very spacious. A few sites owned by individuals are concrete. Grounds are clean and well maintained along with pools, cook shack, observation tower and dock. Jimmy will greet you, direct you to your site and help anyway he can. Good grassy area for dogs. Cable, good wifi. No laundry facility on site. Very quiet. Would stay here again if in area. - jackiej

Stopped here because they are in the Passport America system. I was told they have a minimum two day stay rule. This was in the middle of the week The book says unlimited stays. From what we could see from the entrance it appeared to be all permanents. Not somewhere we wanted to stay for 2 days. Certainly not anywhere near what the web site shows. Beware the road in, its a rig shaker. We moved on. - Libby

Nice place if you are passing through.
One lovely pool but there is another pool that is partially drained and full of gross, stagnant water. For some reason, only part of the dock is finished. Pretty dangerous and definitely an eyesore.
Restrooms are small, dark and dirty. Shower is open to entire restroom an water goes everywhere. Very difficult to shower without everything getting wet, unless you stack your items on the closed toilet lid. Yuck.
Nice campers, but unfortunately the camp host couple was far from friendly. Despite allowing their dog off leash, the female host screamed at us for allowing our dog to play fetch. Screamed. Very unprofessional. Their dog also charged ours while off leash, without so much as an apology from them.
Paved road and fairly level sites. - KaMp5
