This was home away from home for 6 months while I was purchasing and renovating a house in the Tallahassee area. It is a county park and is not fancy. Sites are gravel mixed with dirt. Main road is paved. However, it is close to St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, the St. Marks River, Wakulla State Forest, lots of hunting areas, Wakulla Springs State Park, many canoe streams, the St. Marks Bike Trail, and is only 30 minutes from Tallahassee. There are some full hookups and some water and electric and some primitive sites. There is wide variation in site spacing. There is a dump station. There is a camp host on site. Some sites are level; some are not. Big rigs can fit in several of the sites but have to maneuver around pine trees to get into the spot. Seen some huge ones fit in just fine. Favorite spot is number 23 -- a pull-thru water and electric site -- that looks over the campground. Some spots flood -- if rain is in the forecast talk to the camp host about sites where you won't get flooded out particularly if you are tent camping. Has weekly and monthly rates. Don't like folk for over 3 months -- I got special consideration because they knew I wasn't trying to become permanent. Can get crowded on weekends. I wouldn't want to arrive in the dark but lots of people do. There is a bath house but you share it with all the travelers (and there are lots of them -- the former camp host figured he got 200 people a day) on Highway 98 because it is a long time -- as in decades old -- rest stop on the Highway. It can get trashed. There is lots of police presence because the sheriffs and the highway patrolmen drive through and use the bathrooms! There is a small boat ramp on the St. Marks River. Great for canoeing and kayaking. Bigger boats need to carefully watch the tide chart. There is a fish cleaning and a deer dressing area (not sure if that is the correct name). Favorite place for birding and canoeing groups. I liked it a lot. - SoloRed

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

At first I was not impressed, the door going into the office is broke and it's disheveled inside, but the people could not have been nicer. We parked in a pull-thru just off the road, and it was shady and wide, but very sandy..not paved. I had asked to use the fitness center I read about and rolled my eyes when they told me they didn't think the 2 pieces of equipment worked, and they were blocked in by a bunch of junk...BUT I WAS WRONG. They are undergoing a total remodeling of their community room and that is the reason it was blocked, and they cleared it out immediately. The recumbent bike was working fine and not rickety like some RV parks, it was a nice one. Plus the handyman who let me in was so nice and friendly and wanted to make sure I was comfortable. We had not planned on staying but one night, but decided to stay an extra day and ride the motorcycle to Apalachicola, about 50 miles away. My husband first wanted to move because it was dusty and we were right on the road, but did anyways. On our motorcycle ride we did go past several other RV parks between Panacea and Apalachicola. These appeared to be much fancier, but when I checked, they were at least twice the price. I guess for what we wanted, Panacea was great. Water pressure and taste was good, wifi was great and even though there was a $50 deposit for the cable box, there was no problem getting the deposit back early. There is also a nice little cafe open for breakfast and lunch from 7 am to 3 pm. I went in to tell the owner we were going to stay another day and saw some of their breakfasts....they looked great! Nothing fancy here, but we would return in a heartbeat! Just wish they had a pool. - Ginny H

Only good sites on the water are 14-15-16-17 back in water view. Old park cost too much for what's here. Kind of dumpy off the water. Stayed here 5 days. WILL NOT COME BACK. - TKMI

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

I had a mix-up in my schedule related to the camp site, and Jonah the Park Ranger, took care of it professionally and courteously. This park is one I would consider a "hidden gem" because of its under-stated beauty, peace and quiet. Saw my first baby gator when we were driving to the campground, snake in the wild, and some deer on an evening jog. But overall, just a really great campground that is a fine alternative to the over-crowded beach-side campgrounds along the panhandle. Facilities were some of the finest I've ever seen at a state park. - webtrainer

Road into the park is still quite rough in spots. Followed the ranger in so saw where to travel the road and not. Staff is friendly. Campsites are dirt, and most are shaded and level. The bathhouse is a bit dated, but clean. Hiking is easy and interesting. There is a large day area with pavilions, picnic tables, marina and boat ramp, and swimming. Watch for gators. You are in Florida. We saw the white squirrels, but not the deer. Some utilities are on the "wrong" side, so careful selecting a site if it matters. - GDoug

Park is beautiful. Road in is really rough, go slow! Hosts were nice. Bathrooms were clean enough, the womens did run out of soap while we were there. Some sites has hookups on the wrong side. We have a teardrop so no big deal for us. Nice boat ramp. Trails were well maintained. We did see both the white squirrel and the white deer. Good Verizon cell service, not so good on T-mobile. We did pick up a couple of TV channels on antenna. - Nick_clark

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

Lovely sites near pond with lots of vegetation around. Site was good size, private, backed up to pond. RV park is next to a state park with boat launch; nice place to look at the river. Stayed 1 night. Remote area, no cell phone service. Rate was with Passport America. - frankandbb

Passport America price. We were here three nights. No gators, but plenty of biting sand flies. Checked the rest rooms and showers, and they are in need of some major cleaning. Glad we have our own working toilet and shower. Skinny paved roads in and out of park. Easy in for a HDT and 35 ft trailer, but a little tight on the way out. - Tallboy

If you're looking to get away from it all this is the place, no cell phone signal, no wifi, just nature. Very big level full hook-up sites and because of the landscaping they are very private. There are two ponds, one with five little gators that we saw and the other with 3 little gators (under four-foot). There are a lot of fisherman in this park since the boat ramp is less then a 100-yards away. Take whatever supplies you're going to need since it's about a 20-mile drive (one way) to the nearest grocery. The restrooms were old but clean and the staff was very friendly. - wandering palms

Very small (converted farm land into) campground. I's a particularly convenient pull-through site for overnight stay when traveling the Florida Panhande on I-10 East West. It's right off the highway. It also hosts college games and graduation attendants. A car museum is located adjacent to the campground. They gave us the smallest gravel site. Once we parked the Winnebago Drop (20') on a fairly level area of the site, we could not properly our "10x10 dining tent" without encroaching on the neighbour's property. Staff at the office was very nice. The manager, who lives on the grounds, also came by after hours to say hi. The grounds are very well kept. The little 2-stalls shower house looks a bit like a outhouse, but it's nice and clean inside. Campers are quite accepting. We would stop overnight again if needed. - Christozoid

We stayed one night in a 40 ft motorhome with dinghy. The roads were easy to navigate as well as pulling into the site. The sites are close but well maintained and level. It's not a fancy campground but the friendly staff and cleanliness made it worthwhile. We would stay again. - Jim and Susan

Good place for couple days. Little pricey. Little close but good enough for stop over. People who live at back of park keep area decent but drive too fast. - J&E

I am working in the area temporarily and decided to stay here based on the cost ($450.00 per mon.). The park has many permanent rigs that are poorly maintained. The person at the front office is very friendly and accommodating. the sites are grassy and fairly level, most with a small concrete pad and pic-nic tables. I would not recommend this park for a long stay but is fine for an overnight or week stay. - campdog1

We pulled in and paid up front for a week, we should have looked around first. Most occupants were (very) long term, in quite old trailers with cluttered/unkempt site surrounding. Our assigned site wouldn't work for our 5th wheel length so they told us we could move (very polite and accommodating) then when we pulled into the new site we noticed that the rig next to us had a sign in their window that pictured a handgun and said 'this site protected by...'. At that point we just left, even though we had prepaid close to $185 we decided it wasn't worth it to stay there. It just wasn't a good fit for us. - RandR

2 bathrooms, only one working; dirty and old. No place to hang anything. Many people "living" there with no mufflers on their vehicles. Interior roads paved, sites are level, utilities all together in the rear, inconvenient to hook up side water and sewer. - Quilta

As the name implies, this is primarily a mobile home park. One loop is now dedicated to RV sites (approximately 30 sites). As such, the sites are large and well spaced. Definitely big rig friendly. Some sites have a concrete pad for parking. Some have a concrete patio. The grounds are well maintained and each site has a residential trash can that the grounds staff rolls to the street on trash pick up days. Most of the sites have some shade. There's a small play ground and a pool and laundry facilities. There is an on-site office where RV'ers can have mail and packages delivered. The park is quiet with some traffic noise from highway 90, but not bad. Walmart and restaurants are 1.5 miles away. Coe Landing County Park with a boat ramp is 8 miles away (we kayak) and Appalachicola NF is very close. We have family in the area and this park will definitely be our new "home" when we're in Tallahassee. The rate of $18 reflects the Passport America discounted rate of $125 per week. - lovelifeontheroad

This is a Mobilehome Park with 8 RV spaces. They are adding more RV sites. The sites are the size used for mobile homes. They have a common room, laundry and swimming pool. Managers are very helpful. Their WiFi is excellent. Verizon MiFi 5 bars and we used our tripod Direct HD dish with no problem. There are lots of pine and oak trees. Paved interior roads. A real old Florida landscape. We stayed in a 40ft RV. Would definitely stay here again. - M.Register
