Bring your golf clubs. Located within the State Park is a beautiful 18 hole and 9 hole course called Quail Hollow (601-684-2903). Also, you must have lunch at The Dinner Bell restaurant in nearby McComb. It is "family style" home cooking served around a large round table with a huge lazy susan in the middle. They are famous for their fried eggplant and chicken. This "round table" style of restaurant used to be quite common in Mississippi, but The Dinner Bell may be the last of a dying breed.

This is part of the Lajitas Resort which is a 5-star resort featuring a "Leading Hotels of the World" hotel built to resemble an old western town. The RV park is a well kept secret, but is beautiful with large sites with level concrete pads. It has a few picnic tables scattered among the sites. When we stayed there the water system was not working (which was not a problem for us) but all of the other hookups were. Therefore we (and a trailer) had the entire park to ourselves. The resort offers lots of amenities including a gourmet restaurant (Ocotillo) a family movie theater, general store and a great golf course with a 19th hole across the Rio Grande River in Mexico (you won't get your ball back.)Be sure and drive the Big Bend State Park road along the Rio Grande, it had some of the best view in the area. The sunset over the Mexican mountains was beautiful.
