This is an Army Corp of Engineers park and quite nice. We found maneuvering with our 30 foot travel trailer pulled by a pickup a bit tight and most of the campsites would have been too short to allow us to park without unhooking but we found one just long enough. We didn't see any official people at all and everything is done on the honour system at a kiosk. It was really quiet and nice. There is a wonderful children's park at the picnic site nearby and some really nice walking trails easily accessible from the campground. There is a also a nice wide ramp to get your boat into the water. We saw many birds and an armadillo and heard coyotes. We also saw a rattlesnake on a trail (it took off as we approached) so be careful with dogs. This place is a bit over mowed and suburban looking for my taste. Also it is obviously visited during the day by city folks from Memphis proper. We felt a need to watch our stuff a bit more closely than we otherwise would during the day due to traffic of day visiting strangers nearby. We camped at Dub Patton Recreation Area COE in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Easy drive into Memphis. It took us about 25 minutes to get to downtown but the interstates in can be very busy during rush hours.

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 at Dub Patton Recreation Area COE 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 at Dub Patton Recreation Area COE 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 at Dub Patton Recreation Area COE in a Fifth Wheel.
