Really nice park. Stayed 2 days, would have stayed longer if scheduled allowed. Highly recommend site 16. Don't believe the website. Originally booked 15 but low branches and short pad made us change. Site spacing is awesome as is the view of the lake. We camped at Choctaw Lake - Tombigbee NF in a Motorhome.

Choctaw Lake Recreation Area is a great place to get away from it all. Very quiet. Beautiful lake with a 3 mile gravel trail that runs around it. Direct access to 25+ miles of hiking/biking trails. Nice, large campsites. Good view of the lake from most campsites. Friendly and helpful campground host. We camped at Choctaw Lake - Tombigbee NF in a Travel Trailer.

This small campground in Tombigbee National Forest is located about three miles south of Ackerman. Setting is by an impounded lake in a treed lawn with lots of sun and shade in the hills. Old CCC designed park. Quiet, dark at night. Well marked and easy to locate off highway. Sites are located at the end of the recreation area roadways. We reserved through Recreation.gov since our arrival was on July 4. We had to pay a $9 online reservation fee in addition to camping fees. Who'd a thunk it, but there were a number of sites open for first come/serve, which would have saved the $9 fee. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay. Sites are gravel contained in rail ties, so everything is level. In the A Loop, many sites are waterfront, while all sites on the B Loop were water view from several hundred feet. Utilities worked fine. DTV included all five major networks. CSpire phone service was 5 bar 3G. Excellent bicycling opportunities. Great 3 mile trail around Choctaw Lake, numerous off road bicycling trails amounting to about 25 miles. Children's playground looked fun. Kids were happy here. Fishing, fresh water beach. Bald Eagle hangs out around the dam. Dump station cleaning hose could have had more pressure. Virtually any camper would engage in conversation. Camp host funny, friendly, perhaps insane, full of stories. Excessive barking by tied up pets was annoying, host should have asked that the dog be put inside. Little to do in Ackerman, so we went to Starkville (home of Mississippi State... Go Dawgs!). Best Mexican restaurant on Earth next door to Chilis. Shrimp enchiladas incredible. WalMart has a MSU sportsgear shop, I cleaned house there. We would camp here again without hesitation. We camped at Choctaw Lake - Tombigbee NF in a Travel Trailer.

We very much enjoy this small camp ground. We have new bikes and spent a lot of time riding trails around the lake and the surrounding forest. This is an excellent location for campers who like to hike or ride mountain bikes. The trail around the lake is 2.7 miles of handicapped accessible (to Americans with Disabilities Act standards) trail. There are 40 miles of additional trails linking to those around the campground and lake for those wanting more arduous experiences. My only complaint was the bathhouses were not as clean as last year. We camped at Choctaw Lake - Tombigbee NF in a Travel Trailer.

The Tombigbee National Forest has done a good job of improving and maintaining this campground. The pads were good crushed rock or concrete with lots of room. There is good shade for summer camping. We plan to be back this Fall for MSU Football games. MSU campus is 30 miles away. We camped at Choctaw Lake - Tombigbee NF in a Travel Trailer.

A great park, not too far off the Trace. Very quite and a nice separation of sites. All sites are gravel and roads are all paved. This is a very nice park with a well kept playground and actually two lakes - one has a swim beach. We didn't fish but we did see some nice strings of fish caught each day. All the facilities were very clean and well maintained. There are not too many activities in the area but good restaurants and casinos just down the road. Some sites are reserveable and some are first come. We have stayed there before and will stay there again. We camped at Choctaw Lake - Tombigbee NF in a Travel Trailer.

This was an excellent campground for a National Park although not a lot of sites. Beautiful setting on Choctaw Lake with several sites adjacent to the lake. Lots of trails, fishing, small boats, and wildlife. Only one shower stall in the restrooms so timing is everything. If you are in the area it is worth your while to stop at this campground. We camped at Choctaw Lake - Tombigbee NF in a Motorhome.
