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

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

WiFi doesn't work. Apparently the office tells everyone (Read google reviews from the last few years), that construction on the side road is the culprit.
The electric was extremely unreliable. We had to find the main breaker to flip multiple times during our stay. Never had electric problems before here, and suspect incorrect voltage from box. Make sure to use surge protector.
Stray cats abound here, and mark everything. Gross.
Restrooms are disgusting. Moldy, damp, only 2 shower stalls have lights in the entire ladies room. Just disgusting. Mens room looks as though someone had an accident around the commode, stayed that way while we were here.
Pool was green the entire length of our stay. Not just not maintained green, but gross black growth all over stairs and walls as well.
Mostly annual, with some decent waterfront sites. Has much potential, but in serious need of maintenance and a serious cleanup. - KaMp5

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. - Pennylee

This is an awesome 'No Frills' no RV Park. Waterfront sites are right on the water and are good size. There are clean restrooms, laundry area, and okay Wi-Fi. You can fish from the pier or from the shoreline, or just take a walk along the shore during low tide. The park is clean and well taken care of. This is the place if you are looking to lay back, hang out, and do nothing. Staff was very nice and very helpful on places to go during our stay. We will definitely stay here again when we are traveling through the area. - jimnina

Laid back atmosphere throughout the park. GREAT VALUE and resort feel if you have a beachfront site. If you have an interior site in Tier C, like we did, it has the feel of a parking lot. We were the 2nd site off the main road and Thursday and Friday nights the road noise was awful (lots of fishermen pulling boats)- thank goodness those were our last two nights (Sunday-Wednesday did not notice road noise). We did have a water view by pulling our chairs behind our TT out in the interior road. Laundry room was clean. Great location for day trips to Apalachicola, St George Island, etc. Would return if I could get a tier A or B site AND didn't have grandchildren with me. - the larks

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

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

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

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

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 park has two sections. The main section (west side) contains many pull-thrus, which are very close to each other and somewhat unlevel. The pads are too short to park your car or truck, so there were many vehicles in the street when we arrived at dusk on Friday night. We opted to stay in the new section (east side) in a concrete back-in site, which was very level and easy for our coach to fit. There was an additional parking pad for the car. They have some beach-feel landscaping that I had to work around to hook up connections. (It was really just in the way and not needed.) The laundry room was unlocked at night; there didn't appear to be a code in use. The washers and dryers will take either coins or credit card. There aren't many options for level concrete sites in the FL gulf coast area, so we were happy to find this park. Hopefully, we will have time to stay longer next time. - dad2aprincess

Very nice and clean park in a quiet stretch of beautiful Florida beach. Easy walk to beach, concrete pads, store, nice pool, full hookups. Family friendly in family travel season. - Hrm672

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

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
