Dec 22, 2015 - Ochlockonee River State Park

After we left Inglis we headed to Sopcboppy, Florida to meet up with Rowland and Pennie, previously our neighbors when we lived in Calhan, Colorado. Since that time we have become full-time RVers and they have moved to Florida. After getting set up we settled in to catch up on each others families and friends we all knew. We made it an early night that first night as we were all tired from traveling. The second day we all slept in, then piled into Row and Pen's jeep to explore the area. We discovered that many places were closed on a Monday...

Jun 4, 2014 - Sopehoppy, Florida

6/4 – 6/6 After 184 miles and two days we arrived at Ochlockonee River State Park in Sopchoppy, Florida (SR27, US19, US98, SR65). The first day we started late and traveled 115 miles to Perry and a quiet Walmart parking lot. The next day, as we were heading towards a campground on Wright Lake, we passed the state park and decided to check it out. They had room for us to stay for a couple of nights so we did. It is a very nice campground with about thirty sites. The only problem with the campground was some very annoying yellow flies. While...

Feb 23, 2010 - Leaving Ochlockonee River State Park

The white squirrels came from the other side of the Ochlockonee River possibly on a fallen log. They breed with the gray squirrel and have spots of gray or black. Because of their white fur they ar easy targets for birds of prey! We had 3 hours of rain in the morning and had fun watching campers try to drive to their campsites!

Feb 20, 2010 - Ochlockonee River State Park

Yesterday Herb & I biked on the park roads and then decided to bike to the town of Sopchoppy. The US highway has a nice edge for biking and not alot of traffic so down the road we rode in the sun. Then in the evening we drove to a local restaurant with our friends, Donna & Monty from St. Paul, MN who are camping in the same campground. We had a great time visting with them. Today we biked on the Tallahassee St Marks Biking trail. After biking we took a drive to Alligator Point. Ochlockonee River State Park is full of wildlife and I saw a...

Feb 18, 2010 - Ochlockonee River State Park

Today we drove west of Ocala, Florida thru horse country. Lots of beautiful horse ranches. I wonder which one is John Travolta's??? Sorry I forgot to take a picture. We then drove through many forests of pine trees and wildlife management areas. We arrived at Ochlockonee River state park after driving 192 miles. This park is small and roads in the campground are sand. It is so small that Herb drove past the campground entrance. Luckily we were able to turn around in a parking lot. Our arrival was a few minutes ahead of our friends from St....

Feb 11, 2005 - Leon Sinks

Leon Sinks is an unusual geological area. It lies in the Woodville Karst Plain. ‘Kart’ is terrain changed by water action dissolving underlying limestone bedrock. Sinkholes, swales, caverns, natural bridges, circular depressions and water table ponds all indicate Karst. Leon Sinks has all of these, plus a disappearing stream! Add to these geological wonders the beauty and serenity of northwest Florida, (Sandhills clad in forests of stately longleaf pines, shadowy hammocks of moss-draped live oaks and magnolias, quiet swamps of cypress and...
