Sopchoppy Camping

We are staying at Myron B. Hodge City Park in Sopchoppy, Florida

There are several full hook-up sites along the fenceline 

and several water and electric sites next to the river. 

For those of you that don’t understand full hook-up – that means the site has sewer, water and electricity available.  It is usually a few dollars extra for full hook-ups.

This campground has so much to offer!  It is rather secluded even though it is on a city street.  There is not much traffic here.  It is quiet and peaceful and scenic!  There are hot showers and restrooms available, a nice playground for non-existent children (while we have been here), several swings and pavilions, a boat launch, 

and horseshoe toss.  And one of the best things – it is only $15 per night for any site.  Good deal!

The resident Red Shouldered Hawk has been hanging around close by and offering many photo opportunities.

As you can tell from the photos, we have had mostly overcast and misty days.  This puts a little chill in the air even though the temperatures are in the 60’s.  But the ambiance is dreamy.  As night falls, the fog creeps in over the river and covers the campground in a soft, grey mist.  


  1. Good to hear about places we'll be in a few months. I am freaking out a bit over reports of no-see-ums in Fla. Keep me posted if you have any encounters. :-)

  2. No see-ums are dreaded pests! They are not always present, but are a terror when they are. Google to see what people recommend to deter them. Avon Skin So Soft is one, and I read there is a spray manufactured in Sanibel Island that works. A good breeze helps, too.
