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

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

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

The check in was a nice experience for a change. The staff answered all our questions in a very helpful and friendly way and it was easy to see that they were really into their job. Couldnt be better. Park is clean and neat. The sites are large and the hookups worked as advertised. Had a little trouble with the cable but that was due to our settings on our tv. Got them straightened out without any help. The views out our windshield were great. - we2

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

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

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

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

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

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

This place is just OK. STOP before the office to register. There is no room to turn if you drive to the office. Roads are dirt/sand. Sites are dirt/sand/gravel/grass. Mostly this seems to be a place for fisherman. Adequate room for big rigs. Friendly people. Restaurant on lake front is only a one block walk. (We didn't try it.) - TRDAWG

Always a stop for us when using the Gulf Coast road. Grounds well kept and staff friendly. The pool was clean and a welcome relief from the heat. Good cable and WiFi. Weak water pressure. - Libby

Nice little layover RV park while your traveling between destinations. The location is good for easy off/easy on access to the highway. The park was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The concrete sites are far from level and when they designed the park, they maximized the amount of RVs they could hold, leaving small individual sites.
The beach is right across the highway so access to it was very easy.
Overall it is a good park, however, they have some neighbors to their west that have a large pack of dogs that bark constantly. If I was in the area again I would stay here again. - Pigcrib

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

A nice little county park on the west side of Tallahassee. We stopped here en route to the Emerald Coast beaches, taking FL 20 and avoiding I-10. It's a small campground, one loop, and most campers appear to be here to enjoy the boat access to Lake Talquin. There is no sewer, though it appears to have been here in the past. The electric is also dated, and a breaker blew upstream from our site when we arrived. The breaker box was only 20 feet away, and unlocked. It didn't appear to have been the first time that this has happened. I reset the breaker and we didn't have any further issues.
The campground can be reserved online, but if you're just passing through there is a convenient envelope system. Just remember to take it back to the drop box after you fill it out or the camp host will come knocking with his Great Dane in the morning. Lovely dog.
Check out was a comfortable 4:00 pm. Entering and exiting the park is a bit of a challenge with our 30' trailer, the turns were very tight. You can't actually make the turn from the dump station out of the park, you'll have to circle the loop again. - Hyperoxic

Spent one night. Level lots/pads. 20 sites, but had no trouble getting choice of site. Right on water's edge. Saw an Alligator! Quiet. Well shaded. Boat ramp. Would stay here anytime! - Mike from Bama

Small county park about 10-15 min from Tallahassee. Great Wi-Fi! Camp hosts live in a house on the grounds. Bathhouse looks bad on outside, but was fine and clean on inside. Boat noise can be a little loud in morning, but was very peaceful otherwise. Very pretty lake and nice dock accessible from campground. Great place for morning yoga or just coffee. Only negative was that quite a few people drive through and seem to use the boathouse. Not sure if these are non-camping fisherman or locals. Was a little unsettling for a solo camper. - jdzs94
