Small sites, Friendly Neighbors

1/29/2021 This campground is spotless. Concrete pads are level and electrical hookup looks new. Our truck camper fits perfectly, but big rigs are a tight fit.

Although many sites are close together we found the other campers to be friendly, and interesting conversations abounded.

We saw the white squirrels. On our walk through the nature trails we saw a doe (not the resident white deer).

We were only able to get one night because the campground was full.

Small, quiet, and the best of nature

Lots of trees and hiking paths along the river, etc. Boat, kayak, fish, or just chill at your site. In my opinion, the sits are best for small/mad size campers but there were several big guys in the campground. Bathrooms were clean and lots of hot water. We had site #15.

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.

The Great Challenege

There’s a hiking loop called the Great Challenge. It’s so difficult, meandering up and down in elevation for 9 miles, that you may give up. Camping is grand— so much wildlife. If you’re lucky you may be able to see a panther or an indigo snake. The campgrounds used to be lush but Hurricane Irma really did a number of the vegetation. However, it doesn’t take away from the enjoying the doors. The river is nearby and across the river allows hunting so you may hear hunters. If you come in from the river and try to camp, make sure it hasn’t rained a lot which could make hiking up to a campsite challenging. They have both dispersed campsites and drive-up.

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.

Torreya State Park

Nice park.

Elevated Florida with a view

During the week of 7/19/2020 I spent 2 nights at this unique state park. After settling in I found the view out of my back dinette windows to be unlike any I had ever seen in Florida. Futher exploration found even better views from the bluff over the Apalachicola River and wooded expanses. Just keep an eye open for bears and snakes as this is true Florida wilderness.

True Outing

Grand Seclusion, quiet land. creek separating some sites.
