Pontotoc, Mississippi has the nicest park. Howard Stafford is a city park that caters to all kinds of people. There is a lake for fishing. a play ground for the kiddies, 15 full hookups for the RV'ers and spots for those who had rather camp in a tent. It's with in the town limits only minutes to all the it has to offer. The playground was in use every day by moms with little ones and teens after school. The fishing piers, three as I recall, were in use also. You're bound to find that something you can't live without at the antique stores on Main Street. There is a Donuts shop that serves the kind we had when I was a youngster. You can't just eat one. I will also tell you. The best thing about a visit to Pontotoc is it's small town hostility of it's people. You can learn family history standing in line at the checkout of the drug store.

The park is just off the I-10 express. There is some traffic noise, but not enough to destruct a sound sleeper. A train track is just to the south of the camp ground, but no trains have run in the night so again no problem with that noise. If you are traversing I-10, this would be a great over night. easy in easy out in the morning. We were having some work done on our travel trailer so the were here for a week. Some trees, but some of the pads have roots that have pushed the asphalt up and may be trouble leveling. The hookups are at the back of each pad. While it appears the rates are high, other sites in the area are much higher. We have enjoyed our stay here.

The park is what an RV park should be. Full hookups at every site in Deer Run Loop. Tall pine trees dot the park. All but two sites back up to the lake. Sites on the east give a clear view of the sun rise and on the west, the sunset. In park amenities include fishing, hiking trails, Bike trails and a whole lot more. While there are water sports, there is no swimming and the water level has been drawn down due to a problem with the a levee. The entrance road is in need of resurfacing but the it's worth it.

As stated by others, this is really a parking lot for the RV servicing & sales company. It is okay for an over night stay. Others have stated their site was level. Number 25 was not. Big rigs beware. I witnessed a rather large fifth wheel nearly slip into the creek that runs threw the camp grounds. The wheels dipped into a wash that had cut into the gravel roadway. Our entrance door was just 5 feet from our neighbor's full hook up drop. We were 7 feet from his unit. Staff personnel were nice and helpful. The park is pet friendly. Many "sites" appeared to be homesteading or had just dropped as a storage place. Value wise, at $25, was acceptable for clean bathroom and showers.

This is a military RV park located on the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport, MS. The original campground was destroyed by Katrina. The new location is much easier to get into and out of. Located just off the Pass Road entrance. Office personnel are friendly and helpful. Pet rules are enforced. The distance from the rail service and roads makes for restful sleeping. Although no trees for shade, there are none to damage your rig if there is a storm. Long term stays are now limited to 6 months with 1 month out makes for better availability for short timers. Great park overall.

We stayed two nights. The entrance roads are very narrow. Big rigs may have problem with passing oncoming traffic. Sites are not level. All are graveled. Permanent residents have let their campers go. Pet rules are not followed. The owner told me to keep my dog on a leash while telling a loose dog to go home. Wi-Fi is very weak unless you go outside and work on the old tables provided. We will not use this park again.
