10 Parks near Columbus, Mississippi
Jun 2008 - $15.00
Arrived at 5 pm-- owners nowhere to be found. Left at 10 am the next morning, still not having ever seen them. Appear to be mostly full-timers in this cramped park w/no shower facilities. I backed in against an all night gas station which was pretty loud through the night. Overall unpleasant experience. - 23States

Very friendly and helpful. Convenient to Columbus. Sites close together. Well kept and quiet. Most of the RVs seemed to be permanent dwellers. The shady, pull-through sites at the front are the best. Convenience drove the decision to stay here. Will stay here again to visit relatives in the area. Not a vacation type park. - Macklen

A very nice place to spend a few days. The bathrooms/shower are a bit tired, but work well. Unfortunately, we parked over the top of an ant hill and had an invasion. A little spray of ant killer did the trick. Very peaceful and beautiful. - mcsnygg

We enjoyed our stay here. Host was friendly and helpful. There were about a dozen sites occupied while we were here. Most appeared to be long term. However, their sites were clean and well kept. So, there was no unsightly appearances. We would camp here again. - jwindham

I grew up in this area and have always loved this park. It is located on a 150 acre lak. You can picnic, fish, hike, etc. They have a facility where you can play tennis, soccer, basketball, etc. The only complaint I had this time would be with the bathrooms. I feel they could have been maintained and cleaned better than they were. We did come on a busy week (spring break) and there was a lot of traffic in and out of the bathroom which may account for it being messy. It would not deter me from going again because this is such a nice park and after all you are "camping". They are pet friendly and have a very nice staff. You can come and go as you want and they do not lock the gate at night which is very helpful for late arrivals. All in all don't pass this park up. - User2490

This campground was very clean and well laid out. The hosts were always busy cleaning the campground. The sites are level and concrete with a patio made of small stone. AT&T cell and Verizon data worked good. We had a hard time finding the campground because we didn't trust our GPS. We were south bound on Hwy 45 and our GPS kept trying to take us down small roads that looked like dead ends. So towing a big rig we didn't trust it. We found out latter that we could have taken these roads and got there a lot sooner. - jhav

This is an excellent COE park. Most sites are well spaced, there are a few that are a little close together. About half the sites have a view of the river, others have brush and trees behind them which blocks the view. Lots of barge and boat traffic on the waterway. There is an Air Force training facility nearby; consequently there is a lot of air traffic during the day - the constant air traffic is not really bothersome, but you always hear it. In fact we enjoyed watching the training planes dart around the sky. There are two trails in the area - the one on the CG map is really a 1/2 mile long paved walkway that runs out of the camping area and past a beautiful swamp. The other is not on the CG map, but is accessible from the access road before you get into the CG. There is a small splash pad in the day use area - great for the kids in the hot summertime. This park is generally well shaded, but is still satellite friendly on most sites because the orientation of the main road is NE to SW. Open sky can be found from almost any site along this road pointing down the road. Rates for sewer sites, water front sites and pull through sites are a little more, but all are still reasonable. It's hard to find anything negative about this CG; If anything it has too many street lights! We like it dark. Grocery stores, fuel, hardware stores and general shopping is convenient to this park. - Bama Camper

Superb Corps of Engineers park! Roads are asphalt with long, level concrete sites suitable for any size rig, easy in/out. Most sites are water & electric only but a few are full hook-up. A few sites are pull-through but most are easy back-in. You sign up for specific sites online. Only some sites can be reserved with the rest held for walk-ups. If you have a boat or like to fish, this would be a great getaway. There's no Wi-Fi unless you bring it, but both Verizon and AT&T had good signals. Large mature trees and heavy shade make satellite access possible only with a portable dish. There are also a lot of ticks as we pulled 6 off our dog and one off me in only 4 days. There are 3 small laundries, each with 1 washer and 1 dryer. - Danno

This park is private and secure. A little on the primitive side but nice. It's a quiet area just minutes from town. Has views of the river which is quite peaceful. Woke up to sounds of nature, birds singing and even saw deer and squirrels. It was very relaxing. Mostly long term campers, working in the area, some with families, sitting around a campfire at night. Will definitely visit again! - Jared Woodall

What value, close to West Point and Columbus but oh so quiet and peaceful with long, easily accessed sites and full hookups. - Mrs.Picky

Beautiful COE park 11 miles from US 45A. We will use this park again on our northern migration home. We have recommended this park to our northern migrating friends.
We were on site 77 which is the front part of a pullthru buddy site with 78.
The shower house was clean with an inside laundry (a washer & dryer).
Most campsites were large (long enough for big rigs) with 30/50 amp service & water hookups. Sites 40-45 also were sewer/water/electric. There also are a few pullthru sites. There are 100 campsites but we didn't walk thru the whole campground. The hookup on our site worked as expected. We had a great view of the waterway. - KatSuess

Paved, level sites. Lots of trees. It was difficult to get Directv satellite. ATT cell and air card works great. Noise during the day from military base planes. Quiet at night. We would probably try a different COE park in the area next time. - lstaff

We stayed at this park while passing through and are glad we found it. The Passport America rate is great. The park is clean. We have full hookups. It is off the main road so it is quiet. Met the owner and he is very friendly. The park only had 50 amp service, but the park has loaner adapters if needed. The park is small and has a few long term campers, but it is not a problem. It is a great place for a overnight or for a few days while visiting the area. Would definitely stay here again. We are from Middle Georgia and are no way affiliated with this park. - junmy3

Tight spaces! Extra caution needed for tow vehicle and trailer tires, because landscaping timbers border campsites.
Basically a mud pit when it rains.
Outdated restroom and shower facilities, although they were clean. - Navretiree

The main problem is finding the entrance. Go about 1/4 mile past the large church and then the campground is on the left. Gravel sites, full hookups, fairly tight. Well shaded if you are here in hot weather. Swampy ground so probably buggy in warm weather. Fine for an overnight. We will stay again. - Seeingtheusa.com

We stayed during the Alabama/MSU game. I'm sure the rates were higher than normal. The family seemed to like this place, clean, decent wifi, but we were close to the office. All sites level, mostly shaded, and gravel. About 5-6 miles from town, so it's quiet and not too far out and not too far from the game. It's a 'no frills' place, but we'd stay here again. all in all, a good family trip to the game. - Bumble

Typical COE park - good layout, well spaced. There are plenty of sites at this campground (176). All the waterfront sites are walk-up only. The waterfront sites on Riverside Loop are right on the water, however, there is a drop-off depending on water level so it would be difficult to access a boat pulled up to the campsite. Most of the waterfront sites on Waterfront Drive are like that also. The pull through sites 114-116 are back away from the water.
TV reception is excellent - all the major networks available. Verizon coverage is 2 out of 5 bars. The terrain is flat - good for bicycles.
Water pressure is high - bring a regulator.
Because of it's remote location, a large number of sites, and a large percentage of those sites walk-up only, this is a good campground to find a spot on a holiday weekend if you don't have reservations. - Bama Camper

All sites are easy to access because of flat, paved parking. Enjoy the park, enjoy the fishing and enjoy the passing tug boats and barges. Wonderful experience. - Norton Wine Traveler

Very clean and well maintained COE park. Staff very friendly. Large back in site next to the lake. We will stay again. - bowl2764

This is our 2nd year to use this facility when attending football games. The facility is only open for horse events and football weekends. The rate for football weekends is a flat $125. You can arrive as early as 8am on Thursday and must depart by 11am Sunday. Water and 30/50 amp available. Shower and toilets available, rated good by the men in our group. Dump station available. This is a great facility for football weekends if you like the idea of a 3 day tailgate. There is no shade or privacy, just a big gravel parking lot filled with lots of mostly friendly people. Reservations can easily be made on-line usually starting in July for the football season. All the staff are super friendly and efficient!! The shuttle to campus runs several hours before and after the game and is included in the rate. Only con: not open during basketball and baseball season. - the larks

I have stayed here before in a full hook up site, but this last trip was dry camping. It was $70 for Thursday to Sunday. We were there for a Mississippi State home football game. Great location. Booking through their website is easy. I was able to run a portable generator for power and had plenty of room. I will be staying there again three more times this football season in a full hook up site. - Mitch Dorr

We camped here for a MSU football game. The cost was a flat $125 for Thurs - Sunday. This was a perfect place to set up for the weekend with fellow tailgaters for the game. The wifi was excellent and they provided a free shuttle to/from the game. You can actually see the stadium from the park, so location is not far from campus. The sites were wide and plenty of room in the large gravel parking lot to maneuver around. Hookups are at the rear. No sewer, but a dump station to use. We didn't use it, as there was a bit of a lineup on Sunday morning. The website and online booking system was excellent and easy to use. Would definitely stay here again. - tmiller505

We have visited several of the COE parks along the Tom Bigby Waterway. They all, like this one, are quiet and have a nice view of the water. At Blue Bluff there are concrete pads with picnic tables, water and electrical hook ups. The road is narrow coming in and larger rigs need to choose your site wisely for back-in. We have a 40 Motorhome and had room to back in and park the car. Love these COE parks. - mmhailey

This was our 2nd stay and it is a great COE park. The sites are well spaced, although we've never been there when it was crowded. Water and electric work great. Water was 70psi so we used our regulator. There is a dump station on the way out. Too many trees on site 76 for our satellite dish but we were able to use it on site 71 on our previous stay. Verizon 4G worked well. - RVLive

The staff was very friendly. The park is very compact, very family friendly, and pet friendly. The campsites are very close to each other. - Dayball
