  • The park has a well keep campground, with birds and wildlife. They have a rental facility for canoes. You can fish or walk the trail. 
  • I have stayed at this campground twice. Once with my boyfriend and once with my family. Its a very small. secluded, lovely spot to relax and get away. The white squirrels were out in droves during our...  read more »
  • This is a great place to stop and take it all in. Maybe you could get a glimpse of the elusive White Squirrel. We stop here when we go to Florida. Stop in and see the beauty. 
  • Great park!! Many trails, abundant wildlife, water and friendly people. Saw many deer and my camping spot came with it's own white squirrel. Had camping spot #9 which while fairly close to others, it was surrounded by brush and palmetto bushes making it seem very private. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. Up the road from the camping area is a very nice picnic area with restrooms, boat docks, playground and covered picnic area...very picturesque! One excellent thing at this park is they rent canoes for only $20 per day and there is abundant water to fish in. They also rent kayaks at a low price. The rangers are very friendly (with a special thanks to ranger Marcie who was a big help). Seven miles up the road is a small town called "Sopchoppy" where there is a very good pizza place, an "Tupelo" honey place and a fairly well stocked grocery. Bait is available (watch for signs) and there is a fair sized bait shop about 15 miles from campground in Panacea Florida (also, more places to eat). The gulf is an easy drive (about 10 - 15 miles). This is a very nice place and the only reason I give it 4 rather than 5 stars is, no Wifi...which may not be important to anyone else. Wifi is available however in Crawfordville (Walmart parking lot).
  • This park has a lot to offer. Campground isn't giant so you're not overwhelmed with campers on any adventures. And adventures it has! You can hit the water in your bathing suit, set sail in your own craft via the nicest boat ramp going, or rent one of the park's kayaks for a "small" water adventure. If you're a land-lumber there's plenty of trails for hiking, or you can rent bikes and roll the park and trails. We opted for a kayaking adventure. My 10 year old spent an hour and forty-five minutes kayaking and never once asked when we would be done. There's lots to do here and it's nearby to other points of interest. This park doesn't disappoint for nature-goers.
  • Park known for its white squirrels. Nice campsites although the campground is all dirt. Bathrooms are old but clean. Lots of wildlife throughout the park. Well maintained hiking trails.
  • Wife and I drove up from Tampa for a weekend fishing trip. Park website states that the river in the park has excellent fresh water fishing, well maybe if you have a boat and can run a mile or two up river, its completley brackish water in the park area and in my 35 years fishing, Ive never caught a specs or sunfish in brackish water with silty muck bottom, it simply is not their habitat. We ended up having to drive through Appalachicola forest and find spots on the Sopchoppy and Ochlochnee rivers to find freshwater fish. The parks website also makes it sound like the camp showers are just like beach showers, when in fact they are real heated showers like most SP campgrounds have.
  • 15 miles from carabelle beach. Lots of shade. Private campsites.
