Very nice park, you can back right up to the ocean and fish there or off the park's pier. Clean and well maintained, and very nice staff. You can walk down the beach, swim or just relax. Great deal, with WiFi and good cable TV.
Stores and services close by. - RAMBLIN1

This is a very low key park. It is on the water and well maintained. The only issue is their new cablevision which is the "latest" digital service. Did not work on our 2005 Airstream very well. They came out and loaned us a RG 6 wire to hook up with which improved our reception some. But again it is a great place to just enjoy your camping experiences. - Waster

The waterfront sites are pretty special, your bumper overhangs the water's edge but none were available so our site was near the main road. The sites are pretty close, our awning wouldn't clear the neighbors but I could have moved over a little if we had needed to use it. The roads and sites are a mix of gravel and crushed shell and could use scraping and new topping to mitigate muddy places when it rains, as it does frequently in this area. Some longterm residents who kept to themselves, and many snowbirds who come every year. No specific dog walk area, but when the tide was out we could walk north about a half mile on firm sand. The dogs really liked that. Good cable and adequate WIFI. AT&T data worked fine, too.
Lots to see and do in this area, both along the coast and inland in Tate's Hell State Forest and Apalachicola National Forest. Minimal services in Carrabelle; Apalachicola is really nice. - bobcovey

30/50 amp full hookups. The park is old. Most of the residents are permanent. The section along the water has the best view. Most of the spots are so close you can't let awnings out and if the slides are out you can touch both campers in some. The best spot for a class A is 28. I had asked for it when I called, we were staying 10 days. They said they couldn't reserve a particular spot in case a long term rental wanted the spot. When we arrived 28 was open, I asked for it and they still said to try 2 other spots. They were too close for our rig. We ended up with 28 and was later told it and one other were for short term rentals only. No see-ums were awful. Sand spurs were everywhere, we had to pick them from our dogs paws after each walk. When we hooked up, my surge protector detected an open ground. I told them about it, was told others had used it and it was fine. I pressed and they got an electrician out and it was fixed. The shower curtains had mold on them. No soap or paper towels/dryer in the men's room. The pace, laid back, and the view from our spot were the only good things about this place. We won't be back. - Curt F

Love this place, but the staff is getting a bit shakey. They have a cranky lady in the office and the gentleman sandwiched us in between two other RVs although there were many nicer, empty sites available for the length of our stay ! After we realized what he had done it was too much trouble to move for just 3 days .
These are all back in sites and if you have a MH you can't see the beautiful view.
We pulled in FACING the water and just ran our electric, water and TV to the front. Make sure your hookups are long enough to hook up to the front of your MH ! - User1859

We had a waterfront site near the entrance, close to the highway but was not really bothered by the traffic noise. Beautiful water view right next to the fishing pier. There were several cars coming in and out in a vacant site near us to go fishing during the night which was somewhat distracting. The dirt sites with very little gravel and not completely level could stand some upkeep, although not too bad. Unfortunately it rained a lot both days we were there so the dirt site was pretty messy. Staff was friendly and there is a wonderful restaurant just across the street (Angelo's Seafood). Most of the back sites seem to be "permanent" residents in older campers that need some upkeep. Overall we were very satisfied and would definitely return. - Ken M

Great pull-through site, and their reservation software let me pick my site 6 months out. Staff was super helpful and the local area for dining and relaxing was perfect. Lot of regulars at this camp, all very friendly. We are going back next year. We spend the morning at the beach and the afternoons around the pool and evenings in the shade enjoying the gulf breeze. Watch out for the yellow flies and no-see-ums in the evening. - Fajah

Nice park with paved pad. Ours was a little out of level side to side but easy enough to set up. Roads can be a little tight when there is a crowd. Nice pool and observation deck. Utilities were easy to hook up and worked well. Park is across the road from Carrabelle Beach (within easy walking distance) and very nice for family. - Dave Hole

We stayed here two weeks in June. Staff that we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the "new" area and were quite satisfied with our site, number 122. It looked like the sites in other section were not very level. but ours was. We did not use any amenities but I did check them out and they were clean and well taken care of. Pool was very nice. camp store has basic items. Beach was just across road. We enjoyed the dolphins. Wifi was good and plenty of cable tv. 50 Amp service was good, water pressure a little low. All roads were paved and in new area, they were ample to maneuver any size vehicle. Town of Carrabellle has a good IGA grocery and several eating places. Town of East Point is about 14 miles and Apalacicola is about 20 miles. Both have good restaraunts. Red Pirate in East point is very good and The hole in the wall in Apalacicola was good. Fishermans Wife in Carrabelle was good as well. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Not a lot to do there but the beach, but day trips to other locations are easy. We camped here in a motorhome and will return. - delta 26

Ditto previous comments. This was our first visit to Ochlockonee State Park. Very rustic and quiet, reminds us of our State Parks of old. We saw the white squirrels (not albinos) as well as grey ones. There are only 30-some campsites and the campground was filled up even in early April. We stayed on the handicap site-#23- and were able to get DirecTV satellite reception. The attendants were very friendly as well as all of the campers we spoke to. While here we drove the coastline to Eastport, a beautiful drive long the Gulf of Mexico. We had no problem negotiating around the trees in our 32' motor home. We will visit here again. - gatordan

We thought this was a very nice campground. It is a little tight getting through the campground, especially with a big-rig, but the sights are very spacious and there are lots of trails and lots of wildlife right there to see. The interior roads were pretty bumpy. The sights are hard packed dirt/sand, but pretty level. Some sites had very low hanging limbs. Was able to get satellite coverage even though the lots were mostly shaded. Really nice boat ramps/docks. Lots of geocaches in the park for those interested. It is in the middle of nowhere, but there is a ranger that lives in the park so someone is there 24/7. Ranger we talked to was very nice and informative. - jacknpeg

This is a smaller campground with a packed dirt/sand road. Although we saw a couple of big-rigs, the turns & foliage overhangs are substantial so extreme caution pulling into and out of the campground would be required. The restrooms were clean. The handicap spaces had a concrete pad, otherwise the sites will be packed sand. Our rate was Florida Senior-over 65-proof required. The hookups on the handicap sites are on the left as you face in, so on the opposite side for our travel trailer when we backed in. The staff and campground hosts were super helpful and friendly, which we always appreciate. No cable, but we did pick up a few local TV stations. Lots of trees so satellites will be obstructed. Lots of ants. - R&S

Great place to put in a boat. No walking beach access. Pool was lovely and we spent a lot of time relaxing. Great spots for kids. A small playground would be a nice addition. Please bring bug spray as there are horrible attacking yellow flies! Loved the brick road. Kids were able to ride bikes all around. Staff was great !! - HeFFeR718

Loved the huge pool & cooking shack. Only 1 of the 2 pools were open during our stay however the one pool was big enough & wasn't crowded. The kids loved the little slide in the pool. Nice paved roads. Convenient location not too far from St. George Island. The only problem we had were the yellow flies and ants were bad. Came home with several bug bites. Would def. recommend this park and will stay there again when in the area. Beautiful park & area. Only the sites #49 & below have cable. So if you want cable on your site do not stay in lots 50 or above. We didn't know that when we initially arrived and had to change site numbers in order to obtain cable. We did so without any problems. Very friendly and helpful staff on duty. Would recommend this campground again. - N_GA_Familyof4

There are only a few RV parks to choose from when you drive up to and through the FL Panhandle on the scenic route on Rt. 98. We found Sunset Isle by chance when we were looking for a place to stay for a couple of nights. This RV park was not really meant to be because it is quite obvious that this was supposed to be a gated residential community once you enter the property and drive past the gate house. Wide brick pavered roads which now lead you to 27 full hookup RV sites. When we called to make our reservation and told them about our 45' RV, they were hesitant, stating they only had 2 sites large enough for us. Once we were on location and walked the park, we found that all but 1 site would easily accommodate a 45'. Our site was deep and wide enough to park our toad in front of the bus and our trailer right next to the bus. This is a very quiet park located adjacent to the Carrabelle River on Timber Island (about 1 mile off of Rt. 98). Everything is clean and well taken care of by the onsite manager. He also was kind enough to use his pickup truck to help with parking our trailer which had a problem with the dropleg. This RV park has a HUGE swimming pool. We had been to a 700 sites RV campground recently and their pool was less than half of the pool they have at Sunset Isle for 27 sites. While this is certainly a pool which was meant for a residential community, RV'ers do now benefit from it. There is a riverfront marina and a waterfront restaurant just a few steps away from the park. We checked out the marina which is large enough for large fishing boats. We did not try the restaurant but were told that it offers a good selection of fresh seafood. Sunset Isle is a hidden pearl and well worth a visit. We will visit here again and recommend this resort to our friends, too. - Olivia Las Vegas

Campsites are ample, but relatively close together. All sites have water, electricity and sewer. Nightly rate without sewer, $22.00, with sewer $27.00. Wi-Fi is a bit weak, but with a booster antenna good. We stayed for over a week. Weekly rate $138.00. - sailor323

The park is located next to Hwy 98 just before the St. Marks river if you are headed west. Everyone we met was pleasant; however, we did find the sites to be tight and rather close together. My opinion is 30' or less for access, we had to move the fire pit to get out of our "pull through" site. The boardwalk to the river is nice. We stayed one night on our way through and would not stay there again due to the cramped conditions. Lots of trees which is nice, but those with a satellite dish will probably have issues. - jtl2

Newport Park and Campground is a tiny county campground with only 6 electric (30 & 50 amp)/ water sites ($22/night) and 11 primitive sites ($11/night). Bill, the camp host, is welcoming and helpful. The restrooms and showers are clean. The campground is on the St Mark's River and directly across the street from the St Mark's Wildlife Refuge, considered by many one of the best birding sites in the US.
There is a lovely boardwalk which leads to an observation deck and boat launch on the St Mark River.
Everyone was so friendly, we are likely to plan our trip home to include a stop at this hidden gem. - Ncw

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 small, quiet town city park. All sites are grass as well as the access to the sites from the paved entrance road. Power is 30 amp electric by the road (back in) with water and sewer. The other sites are electric with water. When we were there the park had only 3 other RVs and one tent camper.
Finding the park can be a bit challenging because the GPS does not know the park by name; only address. Easy route with a motorhome is south from 319 intersection with gas station on the corner. Proceed through the 2 stop signs and turn left on Orange Street. You will see a large red brick church on your right as you make the turn. Continue through 2 stop signs to the end of the street. Turn right and follow this 2 blocks until it dead ends. Turn left and the park will be a short distance on your right. There is another park facility before you reach this park. The park name is Myron B. Hodge City Park in memory of one of the residents who was a large promoter of public recreational facilities.
The only negative might be the sharing of a pedestal for FHU requiring extra hose for one camper. There is no TV or satellite signal due to trees, but Verizon was no issue. There is a boat ramp on site into the river.
We would stay there again. - Workamper04

This is a hidden gem of a campground located at the Sopchoppy city park. The sites near the entrance road have FHU's and the river sites are water/elec. only. It's quiet, clean, seldom busy and first come/first served. All the state parks were booked so I came here. I was the only one here for two days! There is a shower room that was moderately clean. Open fires are permitted. Bird watching trails are on site. Since there are no reservations, come pick your spot and the friendly host will stop by to collect your fee. It may be cash and/or check only. Also, there is no laundry on site or nearby. IGA grocery is in town. There is a boat ramp and fishing pier on site. It looks like an excellent place to canoe and kayak. This place is unmarked on Google or other campground websites. - Craig H
