Nice park for our overnighter. Sealed drives with easy access. Satellite friendly. Staff friendly - upgraded us from a back in to a pull through (thanks) - The Aussie Cozzies
May 2019 - $70.00
A very nice place convenient to the beach and some excellent restaurants. Fathoms and Fisherman's wife. But, no ADA compliant toilets. - Geodoc
Mar 2019 - $50.00
Very well maintained RV park. All paved and concrete sites with grills and picnic tables. Park amenities were super nice. Site amenities were well maintained. Very quiet at night despite hearing dogs during the day. Daily trash pickup. Office employees were professional and very polite. We stayed one night and camped In a 33' motorhome. - KimEdmond

As in most campgrounds, the showers and restrooms could use some cosmetics. There was a 10-15 acre lake with decent fishing. Host was a big help in all areas of interest. Grounds were well kept. - Philtoole

Spacious sites in a forested remote setting. Bring plenty of bug spray. A few TV stations were our only link to the outside world. - HikerBoricua
Dec 2016 - $10.00
Arrived to find they had no record of my reservation and another camper was occupying my site. The host was not professional like other federal parks. She wasn't even wearing shoes. People are clearly living out of this park. Beer cans and trash around.
Lot spacing was very close. Mostly shady dirt sites.
Everything was odd. Seems like a good place to get hyjacked or ambushed. I warned you. - My camp reviews

DO NOT use GPS to find this place; ours tried to take us down a narrow, CLOSED road. Use Google Earth to locate it or just stop at city hall, as we finally did. There are no internal park roads, you just drive across the grass to any available grass site and the manager will stop by to pick up payment (he lives in the park). We camped in a tree-shaded, FHU site next to the fence and the street to the park, but there was little traffic noise. For the price, it was the best bargain of our 5500-mile trip. - fanrgs

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

This state park was recommended to us by a number of RV'ers over the years. It is located on the "forgotten coast" of Florida. There are only 30 sites and we had a great one, site 19 even though we had to back the RV down the road. The site looked out over the river. All sites are shady with sand covering. Some sites are close and they are all different sizes. Did not see many big rigs here. This is old Florida at its best. There are walking trails, boat docks and swimming areas throughout the park. The scenic river flows through the 543 acres of this park. I could picture the Indians canoeing this river and what it must have been like for them. Peaceful, beautiful with only the wind blowing through the pine flatwoods and oak thickets. The is home for deer, fox, their famous white squirrels and lots of birds. The birds wake you up in the morning to a beautiful sunrise over the river. We only stayed one night but would have definitely stay longer. - gsnakehill

Roads are terrible, not close to anything, left a day early because of yellow flies. Not really big rig friendly, worst state park we have eber stayed. - lwabend
May 2018 - $23.00
Nice park with small campground of only 30 sites, most sites have plenty of shade. Watch out for the biting flies in May, we gave up and left a day early, they swarmed us every time we stepped out of the camper. White squirrels are cool, but don't leave any food out, they get into everything. As others have said, take it slow going in, the roads look like the surface of the moon. We would go back but only during a cooler, less buggy time of year. - Brave

Great for an overnight stay if you dont play golf. Very quiet at night. A pitty they dont accept Ppa any longer espacially right now. They lowered the price so you can play golf for free. So not for us but we dont play golf. The long stayers dis 30 miles in the park and kicked up a lot of dust. Great management. Cable is analoge, WiFi is free and good. - Traveller Excel
Mar 2019 - $40.00
Really a fun place to stay if you like Golf, Biking and Fishing (which happen to be my hobbies). It's apparent everywhere that management is plowing money back into the establishment for upgrades and improvements. Then owner and front desk staff were friendly and accommodating. Will be back next trip to Fl. - RV Daddy

If you play golf, this is the park for you. Or, if you are traveling Coastal Highway, it's a nice stop. Park is getting upgrades with mostly seasonal campers that are nicely kept. Sites are back in...ours backed into golf course so we could watch golfers chasing around. New power pedestals. Bath and laundry were very clean. - Jitime40

Spent 5 days here, 2 at the PA rate. Would not stay here again. Not that it is a "bad" park, but it is not worth the cost. Owner and manager were both cordial. Only sites available were on the front row, under the Live Oaks so there was a LOT of road noise. Sites are VERY narrow and closely spaced. Wifi was useless inside the RV and practically useless outside the RV. Sewer connection was well above grade and I had to lift the hose to drain during dumping. No fenced dog run, but there is a packed-sand road that gets little traffic adjacent to the park, so walking the dog isn't a problem. I did not see any dog piles left behind in the campground. The restaurant mentioned in other reviews is closed with no plans to re-open. Sand Marsh Point beach is only 10 minutes south on 98. It is a nice, small beach. Stop at the welcome center, about 2 miles north of the park on 98. Lots of area info available. - TH travelers

We only stayed here because we were visiting our nephew who has the local marina. What a hidden jewel this little area is. We fell in love with the area & the people. The RV park was not deluxe but the showers were new & clean & the new laundry room was nice & the best washers & dryers for $1.25 The owners are friendly & very helpful as is the handyman. The owners wife runs the little restaurant in front of the park & they were always busy. This is a delightful place to stay & I would recommend it to anyone!! - Sharon Hendricks

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

This park is dirt and sand, with very narrow sites. Between trees and adjacent neighbors, we only had enough room to extend our living slide, but not our awning. It is so tight that we had to ask people on both sides to move their vehicles so that we could back our motorhome into our site. We had a waterfront site that had a lot of room behind the RV. If you can't get a waterfront site you will be backed against fence with little room. They do have a few pull-thru sites, but those are also narrow. The attendant at the desk was very helpful. - Ccsmith51

Great experience! We camped along the waterfront, across from the swimming pool. Spacious lots. We chose a shady spot. Enjoyed our time here very much. - charthegar

Staff was very friendly. Beautiful view of the bay. Swimming pool was clean. Only negative is the small site but have to remember it is a private park. We will be back - Gayle Moreen

Arrived just when the office was closing but the friendly host welcomed us in, got us registered and helped us to our site.Tier-A facing the water. Easy in/out access for big rig with plenty of room between sites. Our second stay and we love this small, relaxing CG. We love the fishing pier even when the fishing isn't great, the view is. Good pub food and seafood about 15min down the road. We drove down to St. George Island (about an hour), toured the ocean side State Park and eat at one of fun beach front restaurants. Will return again. - Tom-T

What a great park! We were located on Tier A, a pull-in forward so that our front window faced the gulf waters. The site was fairly level and the hook-up was easy. The people were really nice. They are still recovering from Hurricane Michael so they were working round the clock on things but overall, the small park is tidy and very easy to navigate. The baths have a security code, which I like. - Linda dlm
Apr 2019 - $45.00
We got a Gulf-view drive-in site at this old favorite, named for the expression, "Ho Hum, another day in paradise." Any damage from 2018 Hurricane Michael has been repaired and the long pier for fishing and lounging was in fine condition. - Mtmoi
Feb 2017 - $40.00
We stayed the month of February. Very nice park. Maybe 27 sites. Lovely main road made of brick pavers. $80 Palm trees and sea oates. All sites are gravel and very spacious. A few sites owned by individuals are concrete. Grounds are clean and well maintained along with pools, cook shack, observation tower and dock. Jimmy will greet you, direct you to your site and help anyway he can. Good grassy area for dogs. Cable, good wifi. No laundry facility on site. Very quiet. Would stay here again if in area. - jackiej

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
Mar 2016 - $3.00
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

Stayed here overnight to and from St Augustine. Picked it because it was the cheapest place we could find on our route with electricity, which is a necessity in Florida in the summer. Our first night, we were in site number 5, right next to the lake-and the fish cleaning station at the boat dock. This site was not level and did not smell very nice. Our second stay, we were in site 9, which was further from the lake and very level. The sites are pretty basic, but a decent value. - Team Janne

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
