    Being in Florida & all I usually only tent camp between mid October to maybe April but we didn't get to this year so for our anniversary I planned a camping trip here since the river is right there. W...  more »

    Protected Park or we can get around by car, by bike or on foot... Sub pine wood... Disappointment, we have not seen the animals advertised, but it is the nature...

    This is a really great park to visit and as many others have stated, a hidden gem and very underrated. There are plenty of wildlife to see and even the elusive white squirrel, which I did get to catch a glimpse of. The camp ground wasn't large as some other parks(in camping sites), but that is always a good thing when you can reduce the number of campers which adds to the tranquility of this park.

    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. We camped at Ochlockonee River State Park in a Motorhome.

    Awesome camping trip! The park was beautiful, staff were friendly and campsites and bathrooms were clean. Really cool to be so close to such a diverse habitat. We did see a bobcat, so watch out! ;)

    Kayaked there, great handicap area for those needing it. Saw the red headed woodpecker for the first time ever.

    The lovely ladies at the office are amazing. Very nice and professional. We had a pull through site next to the bathrooms. Made it very easy to park our 27ft RV. The site was nice, the bathrooms could use some fresh paint but otherwise clean. One BIG issue we had was with the insects. Especially ticks. All over the ground, on the roof of my RV and truck. The dumpsite was covered in them. We were doing the Cha Cha the whole time trying to empty our tanks. My son rode his bike (he is 7yrs old) and still learning, so he would be on the trails and fall towards the side....apparently close enough to get three ticks on him and bringing them inside the RV. Not a very good experience when you have animals either. However...with that being my main complaint and being happy with not going back just for that reason, it was a nice place to visit.
