The rate reflects a nightly stay. Add a nominal fee if you are using a credit card. Signage is good. Be sure to ask the staff for directions to the park. The roads are paved but they are wavy and narrow. It would be easy to drop a wheel off the road when making a turn. The site we reserved was nowhere near level front to back but the staff let us go through the park and find another site that was much better. It was one of the newer ones and it was paved and plenty wide. There were pine trees so the site itself was pretty messy. The water pressure was good. They did not offer recycling. We'd stay again if we could pick the site. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

Friendly staff. Clean and tidy campground. Sites on concrete pads but not all level. Easy access to downtown and shopping. Wifi available only in office. some traffic noise as we were right beside a highway. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice walks along the reservoir and nearby parks.

One of the nicest parks we have stayed in. All access roads are paved, all sites are paved and level. We could not believe how nice this park was compared to some other parks in the city limits. We will stay here again. Even without cable, we had 7 TV stations over the air. We camped here in a Motorhome. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for 1 night. Very friendly office staff. We had senior rate. 95% of park is monthly rentals, but the park is well maintained. Beautiful trees and a nice lake. The spots for non-monthly guests were right by the road, but not too noisy. Had plenty of room for our rig and tow. Definitely would stay here again.

Just stayed overnight, so didn’t see a lot. Large spaces, clean, nice grounds. Downside is that it's about 10 miles from Interstate I-55; also Wi-Fi didn’t reach me (no signal at all), even though I was close to office. Overall, good for the price. Staff told me of which sites were tentatively open, are all “first come, first serve”, have to come back and register after you park your RV. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is in a great location. Most of the water front is taken by monthly renters. Some of the nightly rental pads are being upgraded. This park is well maintained and the bath house I used was fairly clean. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

Mostly occupied by seasonal residents' vacation units with one small area set aside for short termers. Reservations required during the summer months. Be sure to write down your reserved site number, as the office closes early and you'll have to find it on your own. Wi-Fi only near park office. Otherwise, beautifully landscaped and comfortable. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We are a family of 6, travelling across the US in a Class C motorhome. We had to post this review as our experience was so discordant to the reports given below. On the upside, most of the reports are correct: this campground has well-spaced concrete pads, reasonably level, with plenty of trees providing shade. Our site was by the lakeside, and close to a clean pool and a playground the kids thoroughly enjoyed. Staff are generally friendly and helpful. There were however 3 significant strikes against us ever staying here again. Firstly, the toilet/shower block near our site (N66) was _dire_, some of the worst we have seen in the 50+ RV camps we have stayed at thus far. The shower cubicles were cramped (one was half-usual width!), and had no privacy screens/doors (other than the shower curtain itself). There was no dry level shelf space to put clothes/towels/toiletries etc. So far, not good, but bearable. However, whilst I was supervising my young boys showering, another guest used a urinal that overflowed when flushed, flooding most of the floor of the facility, and meaning my boys and I had to walk through this to get from the shower to the exit. This overflow then ran out through where the walls meet the concrete slab, and over the pathway outside. Stains I subsequently noticed on the walls suggest that this is not an isolated incident. Secondly, there was an intermittent smell of sewerage at our site. We have have experienced, and can tolerate, "farm" smells, but this was different. Thirdly, be aware that the number of flying bugs can be horrendous. With the onset of darkness, our motorhome became infested with flying critters, despite all the screens being closed! Overall, if you are using your own RV's shower and toilet facilities (and you get a non-smelly site away from the bugs), you will probably enjoy this campground, as others have. Just beware of the restrooms! We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

This large, very well-kept municipal park is located in a busy area, but is surprisingly quiet. On the shore of the Ross Barnett Reservoir, this campground provides a good base for recreation on the lake, and exploring Jackson and the Natchez Trace. A large majority of the sites are occupied by permanent campers, and transient visitors are placed in a section near the park’s entrance. A strong Wi-Fi signal was available at my site which was located within 250-feet of the office. There is good over-the-air digital TV reception, with strong signals from all the major networks and several other stations. A grocery store (Kroger) is within walking distance of the campground. The amount paid reflects the rate for seniors. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

This stop was an overnight from a trip up the Natchez Trace. Most of the lakeside lots were taken by full timers. There were no trees in the area we stayed in, but sites were paved, level, relatively quiet and safe. Staff was adequate. We would stay here again. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is a jewel! The park is beautifully wooded, with plenty of shade trees, and sits on the Ross Barnett Reservoir lake. There was a lovely pool, and really nice tennis courts. The park hosts were also very friendly and helpful. Plenty for the whole family to do. The RV sites are very wide, with lots of room between campers. We travel with our dogs, and this was a great place for them. Lots of places to walk, and plenty of green space for them to do their business. The Park was clean, and I did not have to "watch my step" because of other pet waste. We did not use the bath-house, so I cannot review it. We spent 3 days here, and I felt very safe. We would definitely stay here again. An added bonus is that the park is very near grocery stores, and shopping, so getting extra supplies was easy. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

Our site was right by the water. Loved the swimming pool and fishing at their pier. The sites are well maintained, and they have several sites where people stay year round. You may have to call a month ahead of time as the campground is popular, as being by the water. Staff is friendly and there is much for kids to do while here. Would stay again, very peaceful place.

This campground is part of the county system and there is another one on this huge reservoir on the outskirts of the capitol city Jackson. The campground is huge and it was good that we made reservations because it was full. Check in lady was so nice and efficient. Told us what to do in case a tornado hit because the sirens were going off but we were fine all day. Many campers come and pay for the season and there were a lot of home schooled children here. We did not get a lakeside campsite because we had made a reservation but it was fine because we were in a quieter section backed up to the bike trails. There are bike trails that go all around the reservoir and this reservoir is huge. The campground is near shopping, gas, restaurants and a short drive to Jackson. The park next to it is beautiful and a good place to walk and bike. There are tennis courts over there, a marina, picnic tables and great views of the reservoir. The one negative complaint I have is that the bathrooms (2 buildings) need to be upgraded. They were dirty, no toilet paper, two showers not really private and not enough for all the campers there. We enjoyed our two day stay here and there is also a pool and playground. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice overall campground. Lots of permanent folks, but clean and well kept. Very good showers. Mostly level paved pads. Close to Jackson. Wi-Fi only works next to the office. Verizon 3G worked well. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

I would give them a 10 if they would maintain their Wi-Fi Network. I was there for 3 nights and I could connect to the internet for only one night. I did contact park attendant and she was aware of the problem but was unable to address the problem. She advised that the tech had been called and would be there in a few hours. She also advised it had been down for the previous weekend. If you don't need access to the net then this is a great place to stay. If you do need access you better bring your air card as you cannot depend on Timberlake's system to be up. Don't get me wrong as this is a very nice park but if you are going to advertise you have something then you should have it as you advertised! We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.
