Nice clean park. Went on a weekday, campground was relaxing and quite. Perfect for tent camping. Was able to hook a nice redfish from the shoreline for supper. Looking forward to going back again

My wife and I camped at the Ochlockonee River State Park for the first time and really enjoyed it. The campsites are on the small side but offer water and electric hookups. The comfort station was clean but could use an update. One of the best things about the park is the proximity to St. George Island and Apalachicola; it... More

The closest camp grounds to The Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail. Small campground with not much room to maneuver a motor home into some sites. Tree branches need to be trimmed higher and wider to keep them off the RV. Bath house clean and functional. Very quiet and natural surroundings for total relaxing.

This was my wife's birthday and we actually did both kayak loops that day. Hardly another soul on the water. Even though we have our own kayaks we rented here not knowing the terrain, but as it is all mud and grass we could have brought our. $22 for a kayak, paddles and safety stuff is very reasonable. We just... More

This is the nearest state campground to Bald Point (a new Florida State Park). It turned out to be delightful in its own right, with a nice trail along the river and some sand roads into the pine forest (excellent wildflowers in the understory). One warning if you camp there - the white squirrels are interesting, but I had to... More

We visited this park sort of by accident because the state park we were supposed to be staying at (Florida Caverns) had wayyyy too many bugs after the recent heavy rains. So on a whim we picked this off the map. This park is very relaxed and the campground is good. We loved the driveable nature trail. Just cruise along... More

My husband and I were badly in need of our camping fix and took our tent nearby to Ochlockonee River State Park. In spite of its proximity to our Tallahassee home, we'd never been there. It was almost full, but amazingly quiet. We stayed in the best of all the campsites #18, which overlooks the water (if you're standing up....there's... More

My daughters and I camped in a tent for four nights at this park. The campground is small with only 29 sites. The camp sites are close together, but there are plenty of trees and palmetto to provide some buffer. There are several walking trails to choose from. Some start at the campground and go along the Ochlockonee river. There... More

My husband and I took our kids camping here for the first time, in a large tent I borrowed from my parents. We went during their spring break week, which was apparently a popular time to visit this park since we were only able to get a reservation for one night. It's a fairly small campground and it was VERY... More

Out of Michigan, pulling a small travel trailer. Reservations were obtained due to it's limited number of camp sites. (approx. 30 RV sites of varied sizes...some not able to accommodate larger camping units). Primitive & Youth Camping also available. This park has an UN-paved 'Scenic Trail' meant for vehicle travel as well as walking/biking trails. There is a Boat Launch... More
