Not a bad park. You better call ahead because most of the park are permanent campers. Elect and water was good. Was pretty quite. The camping sites could use a little leveling. Most of the park is gravel and the road into the park is tight if another big unit is coming the other way. The 2 speed bumps are quite high and bounce you all over the place even at 1 mph. The site next to me had dog droppings all over it and you had to watch when hooking up your water. The price was good. Not sure if I'd stay again if in the area. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Check-in was very quick and efficient. This may be the best place to stay in the area. Sites are roomy and the layout of the campground is good except for the unlevel sites. Wi-Fi was slow to very slow, but we were usually able to get our basic online stuff done. Staff and campers were exceptionally friendly. We were treated to a nearby hot air balloon rally (we counted 15). Downtown Canton has a lot of neat old buildings. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is filled with day workers and seasonals/permanents. There weren’t very many RV sites available for RVers looking for an overnight stop. The roads and sites are gravel and the sites were very unlevel front to back. The majority of the sites were pull-throughs. Drive in, pick a site and get set up, and then go back to the office to pay. The spacing between the sites was decent. There were no picnic tables or fire rings. This is a basic RV park and OK for an overnight stop as long as you can deal with the front to back slope of the sites. We were in the back of the park and couldn’t get their Wi-Fi to work for us. Our nightly rate of $24 was the Good Sam rate. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Basic park. Pick your own space and let office know. Appears to have a number of permanant spaces. Nice park away from highway. Good overnight spot. Would stay again. Good Sam rate. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Convenient for an overnight stop. Sites are well space with grass in between, but absolutely no shade. Completely first come/first serve; pick a spot and put cash in an envelope (provided) and slide under office door. Office/shower house/dumpsters are at least 50 yards from the closest spot and 200 yards from the farthest. Wi-Fi was slow and became almost useless during peak time. Lots of long-termers with rough looking campers, but quiet. Will only stop here again as a last resort. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Gravel roads with very uneven spots. The park is full of workers or people/families living in the park. No one was in the office, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the Good Sam rate posted with the envelopes to put payment through the door. Wi-Fi worked great! Very few spots are available for transients which is a shame, because the park is in a perfect location. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park has gravel parking sites and the pull through sites are very unlevel: high and low. The park is very clean, with what appear to be long termers or transient workers. The signs are not clearly marked and the street name appears changed on the web site, but not on street signs. The staff was very nice. This was okay for an over night, on the way to Red Bay, Tiffin Motor Homes. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park, sites are long and wide. There are drainage ditches at each site, but do not pose a problem. No noise from the interstate! Close enough to town for all your needs. We went into town to eat lunch, at Hot N Tasty, a new restaurant which opened about four months ago but the food is great! We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were looking for a mid-Mississippi spot for one night, and this fit the bill. Good pull-throughs, ease of access. Contrary to earlier reviews, we found the sites to be close to level, no gymnastics required leveling. And the "ditches" cited by some reviewers are actually part of an extensive and well designed drainage system allowing the gravel sites to remain solid and safe in any rains. These "ditches" do not pose any navigation or maneuvering issues. Good place to overnight; well maintained, clean, and quiet. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I would have liked to give this campground a better rating, with a little effort it could be a very nice RV park. We stopped for one night, but due to mechanical issues had to stay longer. Pros: Convenient to Interstate but far enough off the highway to be quiet; full hookup sites; sites are wide enough and long enough for big rigs; clean, modern restrooms and laundry. Cons: The sites are quite sloppy. Large ditches take up to 1/3 of your site. Many sites have considerable erosion into the ditches, leaving large bare spots. The sewer connection, located at the very back of the site, is a foot above ground level making draining your tanks a fiddly business. There are fire ant nests everywhere and no sign that management tries to control them. A "stray" hound is fed and cared for by one of the permanent residents (with the knowledge and consent of the campground owners) and it wanders the campground leaving deposits on any site he chooses. The restroom/laundry is located at the office making it about a quarter mile hike from the campground sites. The physical layout of the site made setting up a bit tricky so that the door didn't open over the ditch and our 20 foot sewer hose reached the connection. Adequate for an overnight stop. We would not stay there again. Rate shown reflects weekly rate. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Called two days in advance but was told reservations not required. Was not told that they close at 1:00 on Saturdays and were closed on Sundays. Only one row of "level" sites, most taken up by year-round residents; the rest were sloped and pushed the limits of our self-leveling pads. Could not get access to wireless internet. Did not see any restrooms or laundry rooms, but if they exist, they were at the main office, far from the sites, separated by a drainage ditch and several cabins. While the speed bumps might be necessary during the busy summer season, they are "very" large. Was going to stay two nights but decided to move on after one. Would not return to this campground.

First the good things, the girl in the front office was friendly and helpful, the park was convenient to the highway and there were no problems with trees blocking the satellite dish (there are none). This place seems to have been created out of an old pasture with the interior roads and pads of gravel. Drainage must be a problem because there are deep ditches on both sides of the interior roads and through the individual sites (I could barely get in and out of the MH because my steps were directly over the pipe that ran under my site). Next time I'm in the area, I'll look elsewhere. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy access from I-55 Ext 119; also a good fuel stop. Sites are gravel and all slope back or forward depending on the row. Extra blocks will be needed for one end. Local TV signals are strong. Air card - 5 bars 3G. Very dusty - there's been little rain; when it rains it looks like there would be some drainage problems and mud. Lot of permanent worker type units and a lot of closed up units. Several sites have electric problems, check before setting up. We arrived on Sunday the office was closed - picked a spot and slide the check under the door. Since there's not much else... it works for an overnight stop near Jackson. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 2 nights. It is expensive. Not near anything but the interstate. Gravel sites are close together. Has newly planted trees, but for now sunny with no shade available. Would only use as an overnight site. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
