Explore the most popular trails in Ochlockonee River State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The swimming area at Ochlockonee River is closed due to high bacteria counts. As soon as water conditions improve, the swimming area will be reopened. This jewel of a park is a great place to get away for a weekend or a weeklong vacation. Picnic facilities and a swimming area are located near the scenic point where the Ochlockonee and Dead rivers intersect. Ochlockonee, which means "yellow waters," is a mix of brackish, tidal surge, and fresh water. Pristine and deep, the river empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Trails allow visitors to explore the park and see the diverse wildlife, including the red-cockaded woodpecker, and natural communities such as pine flatwoods and oak thickets. A boat ramp provides easy access to the river. Both freshwater and saltwater fish inhabit the waters around the park, including largemouth bass, bream, catfish and speckled perch. For overnight visitors, there are full-facility campsites with access to restrooms and showers. Youth group camping is also available.

Caminé por la carretera escénica hasta el estanque de reflexión y luego bajé a la rampa para botes, siguiendo el río de regreso al estacionamiento. La caminata total fue de aproximadamente 2.5 millas. Los descansos a lo largo del río con pequeñas playas en las que puede pararse para observar el pantano. Sendero súper fácil. Gran problema bajo porque era fresco y soleado.

Me encantó el camping, muy bien cuidado y cómodo. Hay una pequeña caminata alrededor del campamento, a lo largo del río y a través del bosque de pinos. Muy fácil, corta y plana caminata. Ideal para familias o para estirar las piernas después de hacer kayak / canoa / navegación en el sistema fluvial durante todo el día. Un montón de oportunidades de observación de la vida silvestre, ciervos, serpientes, ardillas blancas, etc.
