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

My in-laws live across the river from this state park. So naturally I visit the state park often. It's a nice place with scenic views. The white squirrels are neat. Bring you canoe, kayak, or boat. But be aware of your surroundings.... Alligators are out there. Occasionally you can also see dolphins, manatees, and even sharks. Swim with caution. :)

We stayed here in a travel trailer and enjoyed a quite spot in the trees with a view of the Ochlockonee River. Since we like "rustic," the just the place. But, they had good showers, etc. Not to far from sights including under ground rivers. There was even a handicapped accessible camp site next to rest rooms. Beautiful, rustic camps... More

I would rate this as one of the best State Parks in Florida and we've been to just about all of the that allow camping. We did travel here during the slow season. So there were only 4 other campers. I read there were white squirrels but never thought I would actually see any. They seemed to be all over.... More
