Date of Stay: June, 2006
Sardis Lake (Corps of Engineer Park) The campground was very well kept, the Bathrooms were a little dated but clean. The view over the lake with the mountains as a backdrop was gorgeous, especially at sunset. The nearest Walmart is 50mi away, but in Clayton (5mi) there is a Dollar Store and fairly large Supermarket/Deli-Cafe/Hardware Store/Fuel Station called the Country Store. The sites are gravel with some sites sharing water (will need 100'hose). 90% of the campsites are waterfront on Sardis Lake. We stayed here for 6 days and this girl that cannot be this far from a Walmart survived and didn't want to leave. The park rangers were very nice and helpful. Robbers Cave State Park is about 30mi. Very peaceful, shaded and quiet park... Very good for an R&R Stay... Will return very soon...

This looked like to be a fairly new park, Office, pool, restrooms are spotless. It right across the bridge from Natchez,MS (2-3mi). They are a Passport America campground. I made the reservations a month in advance and told her we were passport american members at that time. Office closes early, between 5-6pm. We arrived when she was closing. She assigned us to a site and said we could officially check in the next morning. Which we did, and were advised that the site we were on was a Premium WaterView site (Only 4-6 in Park) and would not qualify for Passport America Discount. Of course we didn't want to hook backup and move everything, so we stayed and Paid $27.00nt + Tax instead of $13nt PPA. It is a very nice park, the staff is very friendly, it is usually very windy, since it is on the "Ole Mississippi" so they advise not to leave awnings left out, when you are not there. Make sure when you check in that you are assigned the site you asked for. We Will stay here again, but will confirm type of site upon reservation AND at checkin.
