Ochlockonee Bay FL – RV Life With Jerry & Joan

by | May 29, 2021

Let’s do something a little different at iloveRVlife. Come along with Joan and me as we visit the sites, enjoy a few area restaurants, and show RV life around the campground. On this trip, we’re located at the Holiday Campground just south of Panacea, FL and on the edge of beautiful Ochlockonee Bay. We had a great couple week stay at the campground. We typically find most coastal Florida campgrounds to be tight, and offering little space between RVs. While the sites at Holiday Campground were narrow, we had ample space for slide outs, our awning, site rugs, and picnic table for our needs. But, the main amenity was the space behind the RV. We had a large grassy area under the trees and an unobstructed view of the bay. And I must say the views and sunsets were amazing.

Ochlockonee Bay, Panacea and Surrounding Area

The area is different than what most think of when they come to coastal Florida. The area is known as “The Hidden Coast” and for good reason. Not touristy at all and very laidback with friendly locals. If you’re looking for an action pack stay, this isn’t the place. But, there is much to offer – the area is rich in biking trails, great for fishing, quaint beaches are found along the surrounding communities – all within a very short drive.

Shopping is limited. We had a small bait and tackle store across from the campground that had fuel and most essentials. A Family Dollar store was a 10 minute drive to Panacea, and a Walmart, grocery and drug store chains were a 22 mile drive to Crawfordville.

RV Life Update

In the video below, we show sites, a few of the restaurants visited (All were very good!), and updates on some of the recent upgrades to the 5th wheel and truck. We have a new folding, hard tonneau cover for the F-350 Super Duty and it is a great addition for our travels. The MoFi 4500 and external antenna worked great in this very rural area providing cell based Internet bandwidth for work and entertainment. And how handy was the updated electrical service at the coffee bar along with the new USB outlets.  The custom desk we built replacing the dinette was the perfect work space, the new Brooklyn Bedding RV mattress is amazing – best sleep ever, and we have a few appliances added to make RV life a little better. Also a treat of of beautiful Ochlockonee Bay at the end of the video…..wait for it…..
