Campground is part of COE Lake Arkabutla in northern Mississippi. It is about twenty-five miles south of Memphis. We stayed 3 nights and used it as a base to visit Memphis. Easy access to I-69 and I-55 and Tunica casinos. 8 miles south of I-69. No internet and very poor cell reception. Lake is beautiful and campground is right next to the lake. Probably would not stay there again unless lake use was the reason. Federal senior pass rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was overall fairly nice. It was only us and two other campers at the time and both others appeared to be longer term. Facilities were pretty clean and everything worked as advertised. The lake water level was really low by the campground, but I think it will fill up later in the season.I walked to the playground and it was really nice. Lake levels by the boat ramp were up and there was a couple of boaters out. Overall it was a good state park. There are very wooded sites however not a lot of level ground around the site, as the RV pads seemed built up. We were mainly here to shake out the new RV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We usual stay at Hernando Point when in the area, but it was being renovated so went across the lake to this park and what a great surprise it was. The Corps is even building another campground across the dam. Will come back here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We called the day before and were told to pick a site if we arrived after/before office hours (8-10 A.M. and 4-6 P.M.). Our rate was cash only, PPA. We had a level, grave, pull-through FHU site that was fairly long and wider than most commercial parks. We had no problem connecting to their 802.11 network. There is no cable TV, but you can get the major networks with an antenna. Most sites are satellite friendly. Most of the 30 or so occupied sites appeared to be extended stay. Many of those were trailers with local or no license plates. There where lots of area workers and several young families with kids in these trailers. There was a small playground, a large covered pavilion/shelter, and a pool. We had hoped to use the pool but it had lots of grass clippings and leaves floating in it. Unlike most parks, both bathrooms and the laundry were large for a park this size. It was just my luck that another customer had just finished filling all 7 washers when I showed up to do my single load. This is a good overnight stop for RV travelers as long as you don't mind be in close quarters with people. There is a Shell station and a Subway at the entrance road by the interstate exit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy on/off I-55 for this campground. Access roads somewhat potholed but easy in/out of pull-through sites. Rate is Passport America rate. Additional $5 if you want 50 amp service which I find annoying because there's no way we use $5 more electricity running one additional A/C unit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff, Good Wi-Fi, clean restrooms with nice showers. Full hookups. Sites are level with easy access. Some road noise but not a problem. Would stay here again. Good Sam Discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only thing that keeps this from being a 10 is the lack of shade. Staff were wonderful and had a great sense of humor. Sites were grass/gravel; water does puddle after rain. Sites were a little tighter than what I am use to, but they were more than adequate. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is literally right off the highway. Our RV shook many times when 18 wheelers rode by. There were many run down RVs living at this park, which was fine for an overnight stay. The restrooms and showers appeared clean, but we did not visit the pool. The site was level and a good size, but we would probably drive a little further to stay somewhere nicer in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean restrooms/showers with plenty of stalls and showers. Good pressure and plenty of hot water. Being next to freeway ensures road noise as well as easy access. I could only pick up a couple of TV stations. Very good for folks passing through with PA available all week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fully agree with the previous post. Plus, very clean restroom and showers. While winter is just ending the park could use some maintenance. Namely, mow the lawn and fill the pot holes. One item I would suggest also is to move the more permanent residents to the back of the park. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No frills park. Great place for an overnight. Relatively near I-55. Level gravel sites; electric, sewerage, & water pressure good. Site just long enough for a 40' coach & 16' tow vehicle. Didn't have to unhook toad. Nice site; could open all 4 slides with no problem. Office not open all day; check website for hrs. Call ahead & staff will leave note on door with site # so you can set up & pay later. Staff nice but not there all day if something goes wrong. Don't plan on using pool: a bit green. Would stay here again for an overnight since other CG in area got bad reviews. This one met our needs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great campground while we were in the Memphis TN area...just south of Memphis into Mississippi. Very convenient. Coldwater, the closest town, has everything you need. Major shopping, eating, etc. only a few exits back toward Memphis. Very easy to get to Graceland from here. Highway 55 close but did not bother us at all. Very friendly staff. Would stay there again when in the Memphis area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK park as we were just passing through. Sites are all gravel, but ours was not level. The park had lots of full-time people living here, but more than adequate empty sites for one-nighters. The price was too high. The Wifi works great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is Passport America cash only. There was some mud after frequent rains and lots of potholes, but easy access off I-55. All gravel roads and sites with grass and picnic tables. Trees were small but in bloom when we stayed. Park was nearly full with many long term folks. Quite a few of them did not seem to know campground etiquette, i.e. cutting through our site and not picking up after their dogs. There was highway noise and, as previous reviewer indicated, winter office hours are unusual. We would stay again but would definitely try to call ahead for availability. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park to spend one night as a stop over. Gravel roads & sites. Office is only open 8-10 AM & 4-8 PM. They don't take reservations, if you call them they will just tell you to come in find a place to park if they are closed and you can pay the next morning. What they don't tell you is that you need the code to get in to the rest rooms. There are lots of long term campers there. Threes are small so there is no shade, maybe in ten years. The people working in the office are friendly. The nightly rate is $17.33 with Good Sam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
