Gorgeous and secluded

If you forget to reserve, there’s a sign reminding you to call. 2 sites on the cash creek boat launch, both clean and scenic. The boat ramp gets some use (4 kayaks total for the day) but otherwise it’s very quiet. Bathroom available because of the boat ramp. It says tent only but the sites are big enough to back in a 20 foot trailer.

Mother Nature at its finest

A nice park, I had two bars of Verizon. Some sites are definitely better than others. Nice hiking trails that leads the bay. As well as several boardwalks to access the Gulf of Mexico.

Such a peaceful park

This is such a nice campground. There isn't a bad site, they all have privacy. Big pines mixed with palms and lovely breeze to keep it comfortable. You can walk to the beach it's about .5 miles. The bathrooms are super clean and the entire campground itself is very well kept. There's ok cell service and each site has water and electric. A dump station is available. Loved our 2 night stay over the weekend, highly recommend!

Smaller quiet wilderness campground

We came to this campground after staying at St George Island state oro to complete a 2 week trip. We read the reviews of the small spaces for big rigs and we confirm it as we arrived.. although it is a fact we still made it with our fifth wheel on campsite#9 designated for a 35’. If the site had the front bushes trimmed out it would make it easier since it’s a curve to back it. But at the end we just back straight and the privacy of it was worth it.. it’s just back of the river and canoeing area and although we got rained at arrival since hurricane Sally approach same day we were able to see what we came for, quiet, peace, small not crowded campsite and got to see very close the unique white squirrel. Rangers at main gate were very friendly and gave us great information and tips due to heavy rain and winds expected due to hurricane Sally approaching same night. We walk thru a couple of trials and everything was well maintained. Also used the women’s restroom and although is not new the toilet and sink areas were really cleaned and the toilet paper was actually of a great quality. ( impressive knowing this to be badly rated restrooms). The tide creek Picnic Shelter is well maintained , lots of parking and there is a lot to do if you bring the kids including swings and slides. Canoeing, fishing, fire rings and all the uniqueness of the palmetto bushes and oak trees. If you like to be alone in the woods and no heavy city population this is the park to come. Did not got to enjoy the stars because of all the rain from hurricane path. We never experimented any bad winds during this Hurricane situation and the rain went so well for our taste of resting before heading back to our 7 hour trip back home. And yes looking forward to come again but will try other better sites for our fifth wheel now I know which they are.

Beautiful and relaxing place to stay with lots of amenities.

Ed and Bernices is a really nice campground.  Very spacious.  Right on the Ochlockonee River with a boat ramp for campers to use.  The bathrooms were clean with a hot shower.  All of the campers have a pole barn and a picnic table.  The place is well kept. Fishing was great.  We kayaked, went swimming.  Cooked out, had a camp fire.   Just had a wonderful time.  I recommend it for friends and family.  They even had a family reunion on the campground.  We were all invited.  It was like a family atmosphere.  People there are very friendly.  Highly recommended. Store right down the street.

Ochlockonee River State Park

We booked 5 nights and left after one night due to ticks. The campground layout is real bad. We went there to see the white squirrels and white deer.  We saw them and left the next morning. See "RV Camping Journal" for details. We were told that there is only one Albino deer in the park.

True Outing

Grand Seclusion, quiet land. creek separating some sites.


The beaches are like sugar (miles) and the campground is cozy with clean bathhouses. The park is not manned after sunset so if you're a campground guest make sure you call before 5:00 PM to make arrangements to get to your reserved spot because entry/exit into the park is only available by a coded gate after hours. Dogs are prohibited to roam the state park beaches however are allowed on the public beaches just a few miles away.

The sand is so solid and white, the sea shells are amazing and the water is deep, deep blue.

Great location

The campground is at the east point of St George Island, FL. Most sites have privacy vegetation but not all. Our site was 26 and at the far end of the entrance. Best thing about it was location to the trail head unfortunately closer to the playground. Many kids in the campground even when school is in session. Staff was pleasant. Bathrooms are dated and somewhat clean. We are one of only a few Floridians here this week. Water and electric, no sewer but they do have a dump station. Trails are wonderful and the beach is beautiful and empty. They are working to repair the Michael damage and really had little effect on our stay.

Remote and quiet

Set back in palms and live oak, the campground is private with some sites very private and others not at all. The best sites seemed to be #7-9 and #18-21 as they have the best privacy, are close to the river, and are completely set back from the main loop. Sites closest to the bathroom have to contend with hearing the bathhouse fan (although light from the bathroom didn't seem to be an issue). Unfortunately I ended up with the last sight available, #26, right next to the end of the bathrooms with the fan. Good thing I travel with earplugs. On the plus side, my site was a pull through so coming and going was very simple. 

There are some really nice trails along both the Ochlockonee and Dead Rivers, as well as a pretty scenic drive that is "paved" with wood chips, which makes it perfect for hiking. While I didn't see any gators, there were signs warning about them. I did see several deer, a raccoon, and some lizards. 

Town is about twenty minutes away if you need anything. There are several bars and restaurants as well as an IGA grocery. You can even find services offering boat rentals.
