This is primarily a seasonal-camper place, but to the park's credit they keep some nice waterfront sites open for short-term transients. They are a mix of back-in sites and pull-offs alongside the road. The electric hookups are 30-amp only and do not have circuit breakers, so you have to plug in "hot". The bathhouses are rather primitive, are unheated, and could use a good sprucing up. They do provide free hot showers.

We were a bit disappointed with Cherokee County Park. The office as closed when we arrived in the early afternoon. As I stood there reading the bulletin board trying to figure out what to do and where to go, a woman drove up and asked if I needed help. She led us to the campground area, pointed out the available sites and collected our money - no receipt. Although most of the park was well-maintained, the campground was not. Sites were squeezed in here and there and generally very close together. Only a few sites offered even a view of the lake. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal folks with lots of "stuff" piled around their rigs. Lots of boat trailers all around sites. The bathhouse left a lot to be desired - could use some new paint and good cleaning. It was a one-night stopover for us; I doubt we will be back.

What a little gem this city park is! Great staff, beautiful lakeside location, spotless bathhouse....all for a very reasonable price. There are 8 RV sites with W/E(20/30/50A) hookups and 5 tent sites with water-only hookups. Sites are open, but there are some trees for summer shade. Fishing is the main pastime here. There is a boat launch and marina. The only thing I can find here that is a problem is that sites are very unlevel - even with levelers on our rig, it took nearly all my blocks to get us fairly level.

This park is operated by the College of Forestry Resources of the Mississippi State University. The website requests that one call before arrival to reserve a site - we called a couple of days before our planned visit and left a a message; the park manager returned our call a few hours later. It's an easy place to find - right off MS Hwy 25 south of Starkville. The campground is not much to look at - dirt roads, lots of sheds and vehicles and some older rigs that appear to have been here a while. Ten of the 13 sites have cement pads and each has full hookups. The bathhouse leaves a lot to be desired: it was "sorta-kinda" clean, but afforded no privacy unless you lock the door. Each half is just a large bathroom with a sink, toilet and shower all out in the open. If you're drying off after a shower and someone opens the door, there you are for all the world to see. This is definitely not a destination campground, but is adequate for an overnight stop.

We stopped here for a night. No problem getting a nice site with a view of the river. Staff was very friendly and helpful and park was obviously well-maintained. A great spot for fishermen, the park has a boat ramp. A hiking trail wends along the river.

It looks like this was once a nicer-looking facility than it is now. there's a bit of a run-down appearance to things. It's a pleasant setting with lots of old, large trees for shade, and all grass below - no underbrush. The staff is great. the day manager checked us in at the office and then escorted us to our river-front site. The electric hookups leave a lot to be desired. there was no breaker on the 30-amp outlet so you have to plug in "hot". There was also a 50-amp outlet which did have a breaker, but all the wiring for it was exposed. Bathrooms are kept locked. one needs to put down a refundable $5 deposit to get a key. It's a great place to watch all the barge traffic up and down the river.

This is a real gem of a park operated by the Red River Water Commission. The park is about 12 years old and is in excellent shape. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Usually campground Wi-Fi systems don't work too well; this free setup worked like a champ. The showers were clean and the bathhouse has a small laundry room with a free washer and dryer. If interested, you can walk out to Lock and Dam #3 Control House, knock on the door and the friendly folks inside will give you a tour of the local control room. $32 is perhaps a bit on the high side, but the park does honor the Golden Age Pass for half-price; $16 is a great deal for a campground of this caliber. It's a popular spot so reservations are recommended.

There are 3 city-operated campgrounds in Iraan. The oldest is Alley Oop, located on the northwest side of town with 10 sites. The Landing is located on the southeast side of town near the airport and has 12 sites. Rocky Top is just around the corner from The Landing and has 14 sites. Rocky Top appears to be newest of the three and is nothing more than a large parking lot. The Landing is the nicest, with some trees and grass. Alley Oop is a bit more run-down than the others and is smaller - not suitable for big rigs. The Landing and Rocky Top can both handle the largest rigs. Overnight fee for all three is $12. At the time we visited, all three were completely full with obviously long-term tenants and we were not able to stay the night.

The Landing is one of three city-operated RV parks in Iraan and is the nicest of the three. Some trees have been planted and there is a some grass. Sites are widely-spaced so you're not right on top of your neighbor. The park was full with what were obviously long-term tenants, so we were unable to stay the night.

Alley Oop is one of 3 city-operated RV parks in Iraan. It's located on the northwest side of town beside Alley Oop Park. It's a small area with 10 sites, 5 are pull-throughs and the other five are along the edge of the perimeter road. It's a little tight for the larger rigs. When we visited, the park was full with obviously long-term tenants and we were not able to spend the night.
