We would stay here again. Price was a little high at $28, but it was for premium site (site 19 was a pull-through) which is on the lake, After October 1st all Louisiana campgrounds drop in price when premium is $20 and not premium is $18. Park employees are great; they patrol campground at least every 2 hours up to 10:30pm and front gate is employed until then. There are some shade sites which are close to lake. Our satellite Directv wouldn't pick up signal, which is okay. In back area site have less trees. I'm sure it would there. Verizon had one bar signal great, Millenicom internet was great. Really nice camp. - JustDon

Agree with some of previous reviews. Back sites are a little more spacious than the ones by the water. Fair amount of sites are fairly level, but there is a fair amount that slope either backwards or foward, not excessive but enough that blocks would be needed for a motorhome. Park is clean and quiet, only two of us here during the week. Free WIFI works pretty good, thanks LA. Some trees could be trimmed higher for the large RVs. Roads are all paved but are narrow and we did get through ok with 43 ft motorhome, one tight turn needed to back up. Sites all paved. Didn't use bathhouse. We wouldn't stay here if it was close to full, just to close to neighbors for us. Water pressure good, electric good. Site 45 in the open with grass Satellite reception no problem. - FTatcret2013

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. - winnie1

Rate reflects senior LA resident discount. Been a couple of years since we stayed here and only change appears to be loss of staffing. Very small park. Park stayed fairly quiet even during the weekend. The spaces nearest to the water are very close together. The spaces farther away are much better spaced out and you feel you can stretch without touching your neighbor. We never saw a ranger and only saw maintenance personnel out in the park. The parish sheriff drove thru a couple of times during our week there. Office staff is very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were clean as was the laundry room, but one of the two washers was out of order. There are a couple of fishing piers and a boat launch. Bring what you need with you, nearest WalMart is 40 miles. Natchez MS is a nice day trip from here as is Vicksburg MS. There is a small grocery store in St Joseph, has all the basics. On the weekend, the day use, splash park, and picnic areas are heavily used by the local residents. We would stay here again if in the area. - Fixn2gocamp

We stayed 3 days here while visiting the Vicksburg Battlefield sites. We initially planned only 2 days, but this campground is itself part of a military site, and has much to explore. The museum is filled with story and impressive artifacts. The surrounding historic village and cemetery are very impressive. All of this is situated in a well-maintained area nestled in a hardwood forest across the road from the Mississippi. This is the site of a once-vibrant community that was pretty much wiped out by antebellum tragedies including a yellow fever epidemic, a tornado, and a change of the course of the Mississippi River. Shortly after, it was the site where the Confederates repulsed Grant's attempt to cross the river on his way to Vicksburg.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Campsites are level on concrete pads. Quite closely spaced. During our stay, almost all of the sites were taken up by workers from the refueling project at the nearby nuclear power plant, but the managers made sure we had a comfy site. I'd call ahead before arriving to make sure a site is available. Utilities all well maintained, and we were near the clean and well-maintained laundry and showers. Wifi reception was fair at the lower campground; reportedly better at upper campground.
Great hiking opportunities directly accessible from campground.
All in all, a rustic, remote-feeling campground, which we enjoyed. - Tim B.

This one of the best kept secrets in the Port Gibson area. The campground and military park is a few miles from town but is well worth the trip. The park is quiet and clean, the staff are excellent. Sites are all concrete pads with full hook ups. WiFi can be obtained by going to the main office. We really enjoyed our stay here as we explored the area. We highly recommend it if you are in the area. - JD1040

We stayed here for five nights while touring Natchez Trace Parkway and Vicksburg National Military Park. It is a beautiful campground that is also the site of the Grand Gulf Military Park. The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable about the area. We had full hookups, 50 AMP, and rain that kept us indoors for much of the stay. We had difficulty with satellite reception because of the trees, some problems with cell phone reception, and no wireless at the RV site. However, the latter problem was solved by driving up to the office so we were able to communicate with the rest of the world when needed.
The entire park is well kept, and we highly recommend it to others. We will gladly stay again if we are in the area. Issues mentioned above were caused by nature and not within the Park's control. Also, we want to call out the park ranger, who represents the hospitality that is characteristic of Mississippi (and also Texas -- he actually came from our home state). - Ferdy

Basic but adequate. Sites are long and wide but ours was not level - needed blocks under the front wheels. Hookups way at the back. No shade on most sites. It was relatively quiet despite being on highway 61. All in all, not a bad place to stay for a few days. - JA1800
Mar 2016 - $25.00
Park is easy access to Vicksburg. Sites are roomy both in length and width. Fairly level graveled sites with grass surround. Hookups are rear of site. Trash pickup at your site every day by 9:30am. Laundry available and is clean and secure next to office. Office staff are super friendly. You can receive mail and packages. I had my mail forwarded to me here and had Amazon deliver some packages. No trees at my site. Park is surrounded and bordered by trees however, making it a quiet setting. No cable. OTA TV is available. On-site free WiFi, but bandwidth is an issue when lots of users. I have streamed Hulu without buffering during the evening. Good for social networks and email. Pull thru sites available. I have a 40' Class A towing an 18' trailer and I was able to camp with trailer still attached and still have room to park my car in front of my camp site. I would stay here again. - kihei7

Easy entrance and exit. Older park that is an open field. No need to climb on the roof to sweep leaves and twigs off the tops of the slides. I like that! FHU sites with 50A power and VERY good water pressure. Services connections are at the rear of the sites. Wi-fi worked, but doesn't have a lot of bandwidth. Fine for email and Facebook, but you won't watch movies on it. Gravel roads and a gravel/grass mixture parking pad that is level. Site were nice and wide so you're not right on top of your neighbor. Host and hostess were very nice. - TH travelers

We've used this an overnight location several times and will continue. Reasonably priced for a quiet night's sleep. Easy on/off I-20. Never used any of the facilities. Sites are a bit tight, but we do not have any issues: 36 ft MH plus tow - sites are pull through and easily managed. Staff is always helpful. Site surface is gravel and features a picnic table. - GlobeTrotterRV3

We traveled with a pickup towing our 5th wheel and an SUV towing a small UHaul cargo trailer due to an out of state move. Because of the closeness to I-20 my husband called Magnolia Resorts.
When we arrived in the evening my husband went to the office to check in; at that time he asked if it was possible to rent an adjoining site so we wouldn't have to park our other vehicle in the back lot. He was told that somebody had already booked the adjoining site. Needless to say nobody ever pulled into the adjoining site and it remained empty when we left the next morning.
As far as being a resort, it isn't. The grass must have just been freshly cut because we tracked it in each time we returned from outside. The swimming pool was green. The sites were extremely close. The cable tv had very limited channels. The park was quiet at night though. - roaddogs

Rocky Springs, Louisiana (map) | (800) 305-7417
Sites: 22 | Latest Rate: $1.00 | 7 Reviews
May 2015 - $1.00
Rocky Springs is a smaller NPS park directly on the Natchez Trace Parkway. We camped in the unused Host Site, but there were about 5 or 6 sites that could have accommodated our 39' RV. Many other sites for smaller campers or motor homes. The initial entry sites are the most level. If you see one you like in the first 10 or so, grab it. The rest are up on the hill, not as level. There was lots of room to maneuver our RV through the campground. The restrooms were clean, as were the sites, even though no host was present. No AT&T or Verizon coverage. Most sites are wooded and only a few had a satellite view. Best of all, its free. What's not to like! We would definitely stay here again. - CharlieS

This is a nice FREE National Park campground right along the Natchez Trace Parkway. No hookups, no water fill or dump station available so arrive prepared. Sites were mostly wooded and paved although many were in need of repair. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Great place to spend a night or 2 along the Trace. Very few sites were occupied when we visited in early May. No Verizon cellular voice or data service. - AirstreamSJ

Sites not numbered. Free – This campground is in the recreational area of the Rocky Springs Site. No electricity or water but water at the bathrooms. This campground needs some work. Sites need to be leveled and repaved. We had driven down here on the Trace to avoid some violent storms that were going through Jackson for two days and it was a good stop. There were four other campers in the park for the first night and only us for the second. Another camper had told us three weeks earlier the snowbirds heading home on the Trace squeezed 43 RV’s in 19 sites. The Rocky Springs Site and trail in the park is fascinating with the old church, dried out springs and markers for the whole town in the woods. This park is also near Port Gibson which was not burned by Grant because it was too beautiful on his march through MS. The Windsor ruins are worth the drive to go see. If we traveled the Trace again we would stay here for a one night stay. It was very peaceful! Just a note about three hours after we left this campground a tornado was seen heading for it right up the Trace. - gsnakehill

This is the second time we have stayed here. It is a big parking lot with all pull-thrus (plenty long) and full hook-ups. Our only complaint is the sites not level. Some are better than others, but both times were pretty unlevel. There is a big parking lot where you can hookup the car/truck. - The Griffins
Apr 2016 - $25.00
This was our base of operations for our visit to the Vicksburg National Military Park.
The $25.00 a night rate was for seven days, giving you one night free. The weekly rate is cheaper than the Good Sam's discount for seven days.
I was told when we checked in that the Wi-Fi was "iffy" (that seems to be a common word used concerning RV park Wi-Fi). However, I found it to be reliable and fast. The cable system provided a good range of channels with clear picture.
The park was part of the Ameristar Casino located across the road. And because of that, there is a free shuttle that will come to your site, pick you up and drive you to the casino. When you are done, they will drop you off at your site. (Although we aren't gamblers and did not partake of the service, it's a nice touch),
Casino security also patrols the park at least once an hour.
There are trash cans located throughout the park and are emptied daily. Lawn crews are out daily keeping the park looking nice.
If you on I-20 going through Vicksburg, Mississippi and need a place to stay, whether for a few days or just overnight, I highly recommend this park. - Crabman

On a more level site the rating would be higher. Not many level sites available. Roads are narrow and sites very short. Parking on the grass seems to be the only alternative to parking in a paved lot. Lots of area to walk the pups. This was the best rated campground in the area and it was livable. - User1308

This is a no frills park and there is no cable, no Wi-Fi and no bath facilities. Family owned and appears to be on a working horse ranch. Some of the most friendly folks you will ever come across. Only a few spots and nothing fancy. Quiet, hookups worked and we got a good nights rest. Not much else to ask for in this area. - donleeown

It was a quiet clean camp. Family owned and operated, the park was spread out, there were four different spots. There was also washers/dryers there for use. Excellent park for traveling workers. Easy access and minutes from town. - kab

Let's start by saying NO NEVER STAY HERE. Now let me tell you why. I travel in an Aliner pop up and weigh most of my ratings on the bath/shower facilities however in this case I have to say this was one of the worse camping experiences ever. Specifics. The cable TV wires had all been cut out I assume due to copper theft. The sites have a ditch you have to cross to pull into the site where my unit drugged the ground. While having my coffee in the morning a campers dog decided to come over and bark continuously at me. The dog owner simply yelled and cursed the dog. Now the the bad part. The shower/bath facility had not been cleaned in a very long time. There were huge ants and other bugs all inside the shower. When I turned the hot water on to wash the ants and bugs out, the entire faucet came out of the wall allowing hot water to flood the facility. The commodes were loose from the floor. This place has NO maintenance. The owners apologized but did not offer to refund my $21 for my experience. DO NOT GO HERE!! Very BAD! - aliner man

Park does not seem to be well maintained. The first electrical outlet we tried was rusty and did not work. Site are level, even though some of them are on a slope. The park is very convenient to the battleground and only a few kilometres from downtown Vicksburg - Gandalf

When I was here, the park was only about 30% occupied, and I did not see any parties or hear any loud noises. If there were any oil field workers, they were gone or very quiet. It is a relatively new campground, and the sites were clean and well-kept. My only complaint was a few bites from a nest of fire ants, but they were gone the next day after I sprinkled a little borax around the nest. I enjoyed bike riding around the lake. The price of $23 for a full hookup site was a bargain. Very good Verizon voice and data, as well. - judy_online

This park has really gone down hill in the past years. Its a basically a workers' park now, with long-termers and workers. Certain spaces are said to be set aside for snowbirds and extended stay however its not enforced. Too much heavy traffic including construction vehicles trailers with pipeline and other work equipment. Long term stayers are on the rough side, lots of beer drinking in the evenings, sites not kept clean or neat. Speed limits don't apply to them either. This is not a place I'd want our children to play in. Manager is hostile to inquiries and office staff is obviously weary of comments and complaints about it. We'll take our money elsewhere in the future. - Fixn2gocamp

This state park is very well laid out with paved interior roads and sites that are easy to maneuver. The park is well groomed and has extremely clean and attractive restrooms. Our stay during the week was quiet and peaceful. Utilities worked well. AT&T signal is available in the area. We would be happy to stay here again. - never settled

Newer bathhouse, but mold on the tile floor and could use some scrubbing. Shower overflow leaks into stall areas. Hiking trail was not usable because of a bridge out and, worse, ticks were rampant. Even in the campsite area, just letting out dog walk just off the pavement she picked up a couple of ticks each time we walked her. The few sites lakeside in Campground B are nice as well as the wooded ones in the outer loop. Stayed a few nights but in the future, would only consider as a stop over site. - bobnemens

Stayed 2 nights here while visiting Natchez. Called the park office and was able to reserve 1 of the 6 full hookup sites. If you try to do this online, the ReserveAmerica site tells you these sites are non-reservable, walk-up only. The park personnel were very pleasant, took CC info over the phone and never even needed to go to the office. Excellent value, far cheaper than the commercial RV parks in the area.
The site was clean and level. We swept pine needles off the paved pad and out of the grill but that is inevitable in a canopy of pines.
The 6 full hookup sites are parallel back-in sites in a small loop, separate from the other sites in campground A. No privacy between sites but decent width, with a table and grill at each site.
The location is very quiet with the exception of log trucks that start running about daylight and are in and out all day, on the road that leads to the park entrance. They are also the cause of the entrance road being in bad shape. The park roads are good.
Water pressure and electric voltage were good. There was also a good 4G Verizon signal.
We would definitely stay there again. - coolmom42

Very pretty state park. Road leading to park was narrow and winding but manageable for our 41 ft motorhome and Jeep toad. Site #43 was a level pull-through. We had water and 50 amp electric, no sewer but pump station at park exit. Don't count on cellular or phone service. Quiet and serene park. - Bunci

A Passport America campground. We were drawn by the price and being on our way. Rather far off the highway and actually pretty primative. An ideal campground for those with horses wishing to ride the Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail. They have a barn and outdoor stalls for horses as well as a pasture area. - Paullynn

Use website directions! Roads in are good, but don't follow GPS. Easy in and out for big rigs with tow. We always have stayed on the south side, and the sites are either concrete or grass but level. Grounds are clean, and open with mature trees. No dog park, but plenty of areas to walk dogs. Staff is friendly! Great laundry room, with large load washers and dryers. They have a pool and hot tub. Park is on the Mississippi, and there is a paved river walk. Natchez Mississippi is across the bridge, and a must visit to the old downtown. No restaurants on site, but some close by in Vidalia or Natchez. We have stayed here multiple times and one of our favorite parks. - KKColorado

You can use Passport America for one day only. Long pull through sites right on the Mississippi River. This is a great base to see the town of Natchez and the lovely mansions. The park is very clean and well maintained. Lot spacing is nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is a concrete pad and features a picnic table. - rolling homeless

Arrived during the heavy rains/ flooding and was a bit concerned about parking in a grass field. We stopped the tandems on what appeared to be rocks and we had no trouble leaving the next morning. We did leave ruts in the grass. The beautiful lake was filled to capacity and was dumping over the access road... they do mark the road edges with small flagging so it was easy to see. For an overnight stay, you will most likely be in an open area. - cherib

The place looks nice till you start looking closer at it. There was 1 bathroom for 50 people in our area . With 1 toilet and 1 shower that was working in it. There was years of mold on the shower curtains . The flys at this place were massive. The maintenance were notified for 2 days about a problem with the bathrooms at the pool. They never addressed them till they made an announcement that the kids had broken the bathroom. How is it that the kids are to blame for something that was brought to their attention before the kids showed up. The fishing in the lake is a joke. It is off balanced and most bass are 7 inches long . Yes you have a few that are 5 pounds, but they need to redo the lake. It has more stumps in the middle of the lake and I got my boat stuck 3 times in the very center . The pool smelt terrible even on day one. There were condoms floating in it. Their staff made it a point to say he was the personal body guard of someone there with his gun on his hip . It is very unprofessional to do that when there were already tension with that family member. I would not recommend this camp ground to anyone . You have a nicer camping experience at Roosevelt or even jelly stone camping . - Jesse Rodgers

This campground is located on a private lake. The sites are grass with a little gravel. There is a pool that is not used. The bathrooms badly need to be rebuilt. Besides being very dirty, the un-level bath floors are very spongy, like you'd fall through if you gained 5 lbs. There are mostly permanent residents here. Birds (in outdoor cages), and horses & goats (in a corral) are kept here. The office porch is fully decorated for Halloween, but that doesn't make up for terrible bathrooms. - LTV camper

This place could be decent with a bit of effort by management. It is partly a trailer park, but the RV sites have great potential. Concrete and gravel pads are the longest and widest I've seen, and our site was perfectly level. Digital cable TV was quite good. Water, sewer and 50 amp hookups worked fine. The bathrooms and showers looked like they get cleaned maybe once a month. No toilet paper for the first few days and never any paper towels. Also, no hot water in the bathroom. Staffing is minimal and doesn't seem to do too much. Natchez is an interesting place to visit and it deserves a better RV park. - DrLewie

Spacious sites and easy to get into, but not very level. Bathrooms (2) were filthy and showers (2) weren't much better. Had to get rid of a wasps nest in one. Hard to find the place using a GPS. Pool was closed with some sort of problem. - russ1102

This park is a mobile home park with a few RV sites. Most of the mobile homes are dated and many are in disrepair. The interior roads are in bad shape with many potholes. I called the office twice and got the answering machine both times. While check-in was OK, I returned to the office with a question and although the open sign was displayed and the lights were on, no one answered my knocks on the locked door. The utilities worked well, although the wifi is $14.95 per week. This is the only park that I've visited where I felt the need to lock my storage compartments when I left for the day. If I were to return to Natchez, I would likely find another park, perhaps the one across the river in Vidalia, LA. - 15243

We just spent one night this trip but we have camped here several times. There are 23 sites. All are level concrete pads. Some of the sites are pull through and it also has handicap spots. The park road is lighted. Each site has water, electric, sewer and a grill. There are no cable hookups but I did get 23 channels on the antenna. There is a single bathroom with a shower at the sign in office building. It was very clean. The boat ramp is easy access with plenty of parking and it is lighted at night. There is also a fishing pier at the ramp. Fishing is great! The camp area is at the top of the hill from the boat ramp. The lake is a few miles from I-55 interstate but it is easy to get to with good signs. - Zoom45V

The good: The area has a nice lake and several great hiking trails, ranging from about a mile up to 10 miles. The camping spots were mostly level, if somewhat uneven. They had large flat areas for tents and nice fire rings. It was very quiet and dark - great star viewing between the tall pine trees. Should be nice and shady during the summer. Very clean campground, and the host was superbly friendly and helpful.
Not so good: Some sites were somewhat short, even for a TM 3023. We stayed in #3, and I had to park across the drive after unhitching to stay out of the road. This campground does not take reservations. We arrived at about 5:30 PM on Friday before MLK weekend and took one of the last two spots. The last spot was filled within 20 minutes of our arrival. Due to tree removal, one of the two campground loops was closed, so they were down to 11 of their normal 22 sites. The showers in the lower loop bathrooms got no warmer than tepid. The swimming area showers were much better. The facilities could have used a little more maintenance: broken faucet in the bathroom, broken board on the playground, aforementioned lack of hot water.
Google Maps and our GPS directed us down Wagon Wheel Road to get to the campground. This was a rough gravel road and NOT the right way. Stay on the paved road: the campground is straight ahead in a short distance. - Usafabronco

We thoroughly enjoyed soaking in the beauty of God's creation at this park. The RV sites are surrounded by towering trees. We spent a large portion of our time hiking on the trails. There are two 10+ mile trails that are accessible from the park as well as a 1 mile trail around the lake. There are lots of hills. It was almost like being in the mountains. The campground hostess was very helpful and it was obvious that she really enjoys her job. We will definitely be going back to this park. I would recommend loop B(sites 1-12) if you have a large motorhome. - Sojourner9

Most sites are small and close together. We arrived in the middle of a weekday and found the place full, except for 2 sites that we could not fit in, so we moved on. - housecar
