8 RV Parks near Ochlockonee Bay, Florida

This was our third stay here - and although the location makes it a great place to stay, I feel like their standards have dropped a little, and their prices gone up. Was disappointed to find a significant amount of loose trash on our site and noted that the sites in general needed a refresh of mulch and removal of debris and weeds. Even so, this is a great place to stay, but we may try the campground closer to Apalachicola next time! - Limey51

Our site was close to the busy highway. The road noise did not bother us as we were inside most of the time. The grounds are not paved or covered in grass at all, although there are palm trees and a really nice view of the Gulf if you walked down to the water. The whole park was covered in crushed limestone and sea shells which was easy to track into your rv especially with dogs. I did not find it attractive in that way but it was an ok overnight spot in a reasonable price range. The wi-fi was not good at all, very sketchy. The tv reception was good. There was a small grassy area to walk the dogs on a leash. The hosts were very pleasant. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Spots are head in at 90 degrees to very narrow road. Have to unhook tow vehicle just to maneuver roads. Large rigs had trouble getting in spots. Pad was not flat, could not get fully level without blocks under the jacks so we just lived with it. Wi-Fi unusable even when I went to laundry/rec room. - CaRoadTripper

All the sites by the water have a great view but some sites are very tight. You barely can fully extended your awning. The shower are disgusting. The welcoming need some work. They need to at try to make you feel welcome not making you feel like you are disturbing them. - Rstp57

Only good sites on the water are 14-15-16-17 back in water view. Old park cost too much for what's here. Kind of dumpy off the water. Stayed here 5 days. WILL NOT COME BACK. - TKMI

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

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

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

I had a mix-up in my schedule related to the camp site, and Jonah the Park Ranger, took care of it professionally and courteously. This park is one I would consider a "hidden gem" because of its under-stated beauty, peace and quiet. Saw my first baby gator when we were driving to the campground, snake in the wild, and some deer on an evening jog. But overall, just a really great campground that is a fine alternative to the over-crowded beach-side campgrounds along the panhandle. Facilities were some of the finest I've ever seen at a state park. - webtrainer

Road into the park is still quite rough in spots. Followed the ranger in so saw where to travel the road and not. Staff is friendly. Campsites are dirt, and most are shaded and level. The bathhouse is a bit dated, but clean. Hiking is easy and interesting. There is a large day area with pavilions, picnic tables, marina and boat ramp, and swimming. Watch for gators. You are in Florida. We saw the white squirrels, but not the deer. Some utilities are on the "wrong" side, so careful selecting a site if it matters. - GDoug

This is a very nice campground located right on the Gulf of Mexico. We have a 45' motorhome and had a pull through site that wasn't long enough to stay connected but that had more than adequate space for the towed vehicle. The entire campground is sand or gravel. All connections were in the right spot and everything worked. They have a fairly long pier out into the gulf that can be used for fishing or just looking. We really enjoyed our stay. Other campgrounds in the area also have a nice view of the Gulf but are across a main road. Ho-Hum is right on the gulf. The trees blocked both satellite dish antennas. We did receive quite a few over the air signals. - 06Millennium

Beautiful waterfront sites. They were small but that is to be expected. Views are great and good place for fishing off the dock or kayaking off of the small beaches which make great launches. Close to Carrabelle if you need a grocery store and restaurants. We will return. - SBriley

We arrived at Ho Hum at the end of October 2017 and stayed thru March 2018. The park has no grassy areas for rv parking or patios, but when you pull in the first thing you notice is how clean the park appears. The entire park is raked daily (except for rainy days) and looks fresh and immaculate. The pine cones are also picked up daily or more as needed. And for it to be all gravel (crushed oyster shell), it is not dusty at all. The hosts are friendly and helpful. They are RVers too. They are always willing to assist in any way they can and really go above and beyond to help out. The park has wifi and cable. The wifi was in a transitional state while we were there. They had excellent wifi when we first arrived and then they transitioned into another which was not "so excellent" before we left. I understood they were in the process of returning to their original wifi in the near future. The cable was state of the art, second generation digital cable. Not "been in the park forever" kind of cable! As with all RV parks that I have been familiar with, the cable is provided to the site at the pedestal and you provide the cable into your rv and/or tv. If you have an issue with the cable, someone will come out to your site and check the signal at the pedestal for service, it's up to you to get the signal into your unit. And it doesn't matter if you had cable service at your last rv park, if it wasn't second gen digital cable there, you may not have the right coaxial or tv to process the signal here. Listen up, it is not Ho Hum's fault if your unit/tv is not compatible with second gen digital cable! Ho Hum is the only RV park in that area that is actually on the water side of the highway. It has a natural beach, not a man-made one. If you are looking for a pristine beach, travel on to the touristy areas of Florida and leave Ho Hum to its natural, peaceful beauty. - Onourwaytonewadventures

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

I like this place, mostly because it's a great value. You get a well maintained, quiet, friendly camp ground for $22 nightly for electric and water. The operator even called a few campers to confirm their visits as a way to squeeze me in when I wasn't able to give more than a few weeks notice. There's no privacy b/w sites, but at least there's a number of mature trees. There's some highway noise. The bathroom is dated but recently painted. The showers are disappointing, with a floor that tilts to the outside part that is where you're supposed to dry off and change into dry clothing. There was nothing to block the shower water from spraying onto your towel and dry clothes in that changing area, so you have to use your body for that. But, for $22 and friendly staff, I'll take it. - John_K

This was home away from home for 6 months while I was purchasing and renovating a house in the Tallahassee area. It is a county park and is not fancy. Sites are gravel mixed with dirt. Main road is paved. However, it is close to St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, the St. Marks River, Wakulla State Forest, lots of hunting areas, Wakulla Springs State Park, many canoe streams, the St. Marks Bike Trail, and is only 30 minutes from Tallahassee. There are some full hookups and some water and electric and some primitive sites. There is wide variation in site spacing. There is a dump station. There is a camp host on site. Some sites are level; some are not. Big rigs can fit in several of the sites but have to maneuver around pine trees to get into the spot. Seen some huge ones fit in just fine. Favorite spot is number 23 -- a pull-thru water and electric site -- that looks over the campground. Some spots flood -- if rain is in the forecast talk to the camp host about sites where you won't get flooded out particularly if you are tent camping. Has weekly and monthly rates. Don't like folk for over 3 months -- I got special consideration because they knew I wasn't trying to become permanent. Can get crowded on weekends. I wouldn't want to arrive in the dark but lots of people do. There is a bath house but you share it with all the travelers (and there are lots of them -- the former camp host figured he got 200 people a day) on Highway 98 because it is a long time -- as in decades old -- rest stop on the Highway. It can get trashed. There is lots of police presence because the sheriffs and the highway patrolmen drive through and use the bathrooms! There is a small boat ramp on the St. Marks River. Great for canoeing and kayaking. Bigger boats need to carefully watch the tide chart. There is a fish cleaning and a deer dressing area (not sure if that is the correct name). Favorite place for birding and canoeing groups. I liked it a lot. - SoloRed

This is a small county park hosted by one very helpful man. Many of the sites are along the tree line at the back of the park. The roads & sites are packed dirt The water, electric and Wi-Fi worked fine. It Is quiet and has lots of trees. The beautiful St. Mark's Preserve is directly across the road, a great place to bike, hike & paddle. This park is not fancy but certainly serviceable and convenient. - twotimes
