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

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 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

There is a lot of good to be said about this park. Granted we are here on a weekday in January, so there are no overcrowding issues. However the views are fantastic. Sites are spacious and easy to access. Wifi works great, no problems with the 50 amp electric. Restrooms and showers while old are clean. - 70 Nole

This was our second visit to the park, this time for a month.
The more expensive sites are of course waterfront while the less expensive smaller sites are arrayed around the perimeter fence. The waterfront sites and some of the perimeter sites are big enough to put out slides, awning, decks etc with room to spare. Some are sunny and some have shade. Some tenants are relatively permanent, some are just for a few months to a year and some are transient. All are required to keep sites clean and neat with only normal camping items such as chairs, coolers grills etc allowed; right now the park is almost full and there's no junk or random stuff sitting around anywhere. It's expressly forbidden to wash an RV, vehicle or boat in the park. WiFi works most of the time and is reasonably fast. The few outages have been I believe upstream from the park. Verizon is strong. The restrooms and laundry have been clean all month but unfortunately Hurricane Hermine took out the pool pumps. Office people were pleasant. Our only dislike was that the road through the CG is dirt and things got rather dusty during the dry season. - User3322

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

As someone in the office told us, Ho-Hum is on the slower side of Florida. The campground is the only one in the area right on the water and as a result the views and fishing are spectacular. The owners are clearly working hard to upgrade and improve the campground. In 2017, they have added wifi, replaced the utilities and added a propane filling station. Sites were large enough for our 40' fifth wheel & 5500, but the inland sites tended to be close together. There were sites that were wide enough for side porches, a rare thing. And the sites along the water were quite wide. Sites are cleaned upon leaving and roads are raked daily. Trees are trimmed to allow even the tallest rigs to camp easily. We would stay again, but would limit our stay to a few nights. - NJTroy

Rate reflects a weekly rate. Nice no frills park right on the Gulf. Front row sites back right on to the water, we were one row in. Very friendly staff and very helpful. They were always raking around the sites ( Pine trees were dropping their needles and pine cones). Not a lot of shopping near by but there is an IGA and a Dollar General. We would defiantly stay here again. - Hihocarp

When looking for a site I was looking for a park with a beach to walk and sit and relax. They said they had a 1/2 mile beach. It is not, it is a strip of land with stumps that you can walk during low tide. Walk looking down because one woman cut her foot when a stump went through her shoe. Should have looked at "beach" before we paid for a month. Cash or check only. If you're looking for a clean lowkey fish camp, this is it. WiFi sporadic. All gravel that they rake with a tractor/rake that stirs up dust and rocks that are hard to walk on. Park is well lit. Two showers with curtains. Laundry, don't use washer closest to door. It only fills part way and you need to bring hose in from outside to finish filling. Park is right on 98 and traffic starts about 4:30 a.m. We will not be staying again. Sites are very close together and if neighbors speak loudly you can hear them in their RV. - beach walker

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

This park was a real find for an overnight on a roadtrip. I'd happily spend weeks here. Spots right on the lake, fishing piers, and a boat dock. There's something very peaceful, calm and beautiful about this lake. Old man is on grounds most days, and takes the entry fees, but they don't accept cards. Grounds are maintained by inmates and are really quite attractive. Beautiful boardwalks and pier walkways on the shores of this campground. Will be back again. - charlyhors

Wonderful park very clean. Neighbors friendly. We stayed 2 nights. Our site overlooked the lake with a deck. A nice pier is available. The interior roads were unpaved. Looked as there were some longer term camping here. If we are ever in area again would drive out of way to get there. - J Arthur

We have camped here several times. The camp sites are located on Lake Talquin at Hopkins Landing. It is maintained by Gadsden City. Has 2 bath houses that are clean. There is a boat ramp in the park. Sites are mostly grass and all are in the shade most of the day. It is located about 15 miles from Quincy on Hwy 267. - N4DOG

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

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

This park is more like a fish camp. It is not well signed so you have to guess where to go. The office is not convient for checkin. This is not a park for us to come back to. - oniedu

This was our first time at the park, we would come again. The park was very clean, we had a pull thru site #5. No cable, but local TV was OK. If you like fishing, this park would be great. Its located on a big lake, Talquin. It appears they have several long terms residents. Some mobile homes, and RV's. They also had several cabins to rent. - Joceil

we stayed here for an overnight because of proximity to I-10. To owners credit, when we called first, he did admit that the few sites they reserved for overnights were the most level of his sites. He also tried diligently to get us power; the designated site had been converted to 50 amp from 30 amp and the 30 amp outlet was disconnected. He could not find an adapter to convert his 50 amp to 30 amp; we are in a micro travel trailer.
Our impressions: 10 miles off I-10, sites were marginally level and we had to disconnect to level us, front to back; The bath house was atrocious - only one male toilet and shower stall and only one female. The bath rooms should have been repainted at least 10 years ago; the walls and floor were stained and pealing paint - NOT CLEAN! This is a marina, but the baths were not clean enough to clean fish or cut bait, certainly not for human use, IMHV. We would not stay here again. - adk micro camper

We really enjoyed this campground. It was a little tight to maneuver but our site was a drivethru and had plenty of parking room with a swing and picnic table. Landscaping was nice and everything was very neat. For $10 you can wash your motorhome, and we did. Small fenced dog park but sufficient. Across Hwy 98 to beach and during our visit, there were very few people. Beach is dog friendly which is a huge plus for us. Laundry takes credit cards which is helpful. Quiet little town, grocery 2 miles. Pool area was nice and large screened porch adjacent to laundry for visiting while waiting. Office staff friendly. We would definitely come back here. - busyteach

Great place with friendly campers and staff. The WIFI was awful due to bandwidth availability. - Charlie_72704

The park location is fabulous--across the street from a white sandy beach that is dog friendly. The worst aspect is some of the palm trees are located right at site entrances and make it difficult to swing a big rig into a site, especially if a car is parked across from the lot. But it's a nice park, clean with concrete pads and a picnic table. If you are unfortunate enough to be assigned a spot in the adjacent park across from the entrance, it is not nearly as nice (no landscaping). - Breeze On

This is the third time we've stayed at this lovely little campground, and it did not disappoint this time. We again stayed right on the water in site 11. Long rigs will probably not be able to navigate into and out of this site due to the steepness of the access and exit. Our 30 foot rig did just fine. Nearly all sites are back in. Wi-Fi was excellent as was over-the-air TV and Verizon phone service. The circuit breaker box is in need of some screws as the cover nearly fell off and in removing power, I could see inside the box. Daily rate shown includes fee and tax. The nearest gas/snack station is about 5 miles away. We didn't see the host this time, so missed the Great Dane. We like the peace and quiet of this location and it's a great stopping off point when headed south and west. - Jay Rutherford

We stayed at this small County park for a week over Thanksgiving. we had the campground all to ourselves for 2 night, but by the holiday and weekend all sites where full, It was still nice and quite in the campground. Some sites are right on the lake and all sites have a lake view. There is a public boat ramp and large parking lot right next door to the campground that produced more noisy than the campers. We where awakened a couple of mornings early by duck hunters on the lake, it seamed that there was always some body fishing from the docks at the boat ramp at night. Leon County needs to up grade the shower house. I'm sure we will stay here again in the future. - Psi500
