2 Parks near Sopchoppy, Florida

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

Fabulous campground. Very small, about 30 sites and those 30 sites had the park to themselves in March. The sites are simply wonderful. They are all different with many of them being immense. There were about 10 sites which were not directly on the river, but you could see the river from your site when you stood up. Paths went directly to the river and a wonderful trail located up and down the river. White squirrels were there and the site itself is very well kept and restrooms spotless. The park has a number of other walking trails with lots of birds. Each site had a nice campfire, picnic table and grill and many had posts and a clothesline to hang wet clothes. There were canoe and kayak rentals. This campground is pretty isolated but it is 20-25 minutes from a great BBQ and seafood restaurant and 45 minutes form St. Marks Wildlife Visitor center. We will be back again. Loved it.( one of our top 10 campsites). Be careful with the campsites and look at pictures because a few of these sites you could not get a camper in because of trees. - trilliumhills

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
