What a beautiful park! Most of the sites were large and private with palmettos and other low-to-medium height plants between sites. A few had no shade, but most were pretty shady. There are lots of places to walk and ride a bike. The fishing must be good as there were a lot of boats around. The dump station has 2 dumps in an island with access from either direction. This makes dumping go a lot faster, especially on a Sunday when so many campers are leaving at the same time. Laundry facilities are free and even have a screened porch to wait in. Our RV is 31' long.

What a beautiful park, right in the swamp and on the river. Many sites had docks for tying up a boat or canoe. They were great for just sitting and watching birds, boats and alligators go by. Sites were fairly private and shady. One problem is that most sites have the utilities on the passenger side causing most RVs to either use extra hoses/cords or park close to the road in order to hook up. It is about 25 miles off of I-10 and a world of difference in pace. This is one of the quieter parks we have stayed in. We will camp here again. Our RV is 31' long.

Although close to the coast, there is no beach for walking. Sites are close together and have no privacy. We stayed in Treasure Cove which is nearest the RR tracks and a local road. The train was not much of a problem as the whistle did not blow as it passed. The sites in that loop had a little more space and some trees. A lot of class A RVs would leave their coach up front and look for a site in their car, as the loops are tight. The entire park consists of the campground and water park. We will probably not stay here again as there is nowhere to ride bikes or do much walking. Our rig is 31' long.

The site was very level with lots of shade. Some sites were fairly close together and lacked privacy. The park is very small and has few added attractions other than fishing. The camp host was friendly and working hard to make sure the park was clean and well maintained. The park ranger drove through frequently.

This is a great park. There are several trails, including a five-mile loop around the park. The trails are well maintained and well marked. We saw deer and wild turkey while hiking. The sites are fairly level and in good condition. The uplands loop has sewer, water, and electricity at all sites. The bottomland loop has water and electricity only, except for three sites with sewer. The only downside is that the internet was not working, and there are no immediate plans to restore it.

It was a pretty site, lots of sand but level, jacks did sink in a lot. Good ways off the interstate which we like.

This was our second time here. It was just as good. The ranger and staff very friendly. Site very level, most sites very private.

Date of Stay:

Small campground with narrow road, but good visibility electric and water. No Wifi. Very quiet and unexpectedly full. Some sites are short and have a steep drop off. Good view from our site.

Date of Stay:

Sites were well spaced with brush between sites. There was a locked gate with code just for the campground. Several sites were very unlevel causing all weight to be on jacks and tires were not even touching the ground. They are in the process of installing Wi-Fi in the campground. You can go to the camp store and use theirs.

Staff was not knowledgeable and treated us like idiots even though she was wrong. Told us park was booked when it had many sites open. Poor signage, poorly maintained road, really not suitable for big rigs. Sites were small no garbage cans by dump station. The loop we were in did not have dump station or garbage bins, don’t think we were suppose to be in that loop.

Date of Stay:

Gravel roads. Our site had a nice view of the marsh. We expected trouble with mosquitoes but had none. We had trouble leveling. No WiFi, very helpful staff. Even though it was full it was very quiet.

Date of Stay:

Pretty park; good walking. Sites are haphazardly laid out with no set site numbers. It was not crowded so we had no problem with spacing. The sites near the Trace could have some road noise. No dump station.

The entrance is nowhere near the museum. It is down a side road by the Shell station. There was some noise from the road but fairly quiet at night. Great hiking trails. This park does close due to flooding so call ahead. the woman checking us is was very uninformed about the park. You can walk the trail form the campground to the museum. It is about 2 miles round trip, not 2 1/2 miles like she said. The kids next door were having a lot of luck catching fish. This park fills up fast. It is down a long dusty road which several large class A coaches make ok. The bathhouse is up a lot of stairs or a long rickety ramp. Not one of the best I've seen.

Beautiful campground laid out around a lake. Sites are long and level concrete pads. Many are shady and have sewer. It is fairly close to a major road so there was some road noise. After 3 o’clock there was a lot of noisy activity on the lake. Good TV reception. Most of the trails allow ATVs and dirt bikes which is good if you enjoy that sort of thing but not if you are looking for a tranquil walking trail. No alcohol allowed or motorized toys; great bathrooms and the best laundry of any park with reasonable charges. They are putting in a new campground near the trail head. Unfortunately they clear cut and it will be years before there is any shade.

Date of Stay:

The park is right on the Natchez Trace. Most of the sites are beside a small lake. The sites are well spaced and fairly level but many are very short. There were also steep drop-offs around most sites. Only TV reception was PBS from Florence, AL. No garbage cans at sites, just a dumpster as you leave. Lots of good hiking trails. No laundry facilities.
