Ochlockonee River State Park

Ochlockonee River State Park is a scenic river park with more than 543 acres that offer vivid views of natural Florida along the Gulf Coast.  Opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities on land and water abound – rivers and creeks to boat and fish, nature trails to hike and explore.

The peaceful atmosphere of this park makes every visit tranquil and relaxing.  Thirty campsites are nestled in the shady, wooded forest – each with water and electric hookups.  A dump station is also provided.  A youth campsite is situated on the Dead River for youth organizations to use.

Nature trails run along the river and wind through picturesque pine flatwoods.  Ranger-guided walks and campfire programs are offered during the summer months.

Water sports are popular on the river in the summer.  The park is an excellent place to swim, canoe and fish.  Fresh and saltwater fish are abundant.  Largemouth bass, bream, catfish and speckled perch inhabit the fresh water, while redfish and speckled trout are common in the brackish water.

Directions:  Go east on Hwy 98 and keep left onto US-319/SR-377 toward Sopchoppy.  Turn right onto State Park Road (before Sopchoppy)  About 25 min and 18 miles from the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce.
