Nestled in the heart of the Apalachicola National Forest, you can find one of the most unique small towns in Florida. Sopchoppy will be your gateway into rural Florida.

Life Style

Less than 500 people call Sopchoppy home. 45 minutes from Tallahassee, Sopchoppy is not just a fun word to say. It’s also known as the Worm Gruntin’ Capital of the World.

Every April, on the second Saturday of the month, people come from all over Florida, Georgia, and Alabama congregate. During a special festival, grunters use a specialized technique to draw earthworms up to the ground’s surface to use as fishing bait.

Use those worms and head over to the Ochlockonee River State Park for a grand day of boating and fishing. Sopchoppy is actually one of the best places to go camping in Florida!
