Large State Park with lots of space. About 40% of the 58 sites are right on the water. The land slopes gently into the water for most sites making it ideal to pull up a fishing boat or kayak right to your campsite. The sites are all full hook-up, and at a daily rate of $24 (no discount) for a premium site, it's a pretty good value. Good 30/50 amp power and excellent water pressure. Some of the sewer stubs are several inches out of the ground. Sites are all either concrete or asphalt with a rock apron or traffic area. They are spaced out well. This is an older park and some of the sites are short for longer campers which results in some folks parking across the site or on the side of the road, most site lengths are OK, though. There is one bath house for the campground which would be insufficient if the sites were not full hook up. The CG is relatively flat and "bicycle friendly". The bath house is old and a little out dated, but clean, stocked well and maintained. There are two washing machines and two dryers in the bath house entrance - $1/cycle, takes quarters. In the campground, Verizon service is marginal depending on location. Over the air reception is adequate. Tree coverage is fairly thick for satellite reception, but most campers with a portable dish were able to find a "hole" in the canopy. Ants and mosquitoes have been a problem when we have camped here before, but were not a problem this trip in the spring (late March). The State Park is large with multiple play fields, a good Frisbee golf course, lots of Geocaches, one good long hiking trail around the lake 3.5 miles (moderate). There is no swimming in the lake at the campsite, and I did not see a swimming beach at the Park. There is a real grocery store and fuel within 4 miles from the CG. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a great state park. We had a spot right on Lake Lowndes. Great ranger that checked us in for the weekend. Very peaceful. A couple of problems; there were a lot of geese around the park and our spot had a lot of droppings to contend with, and there is a bad ant infestation. Had ants get in the RV during the first night and we spent the rest of the time fighting ants. The ants did not bite but caused a lot of stress. Appeared to be no problems on the other loop with the ant problem. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are situated among tall pines with a paved parking pad. Site includes a large picnic table, fire ring, and pedestal grill. Our site number 12 was full hookup, 50amp, including sewer with a view of the lake. We had reservations but arrived after the office closed. There was an orange cone at our site indicating it was reserved. As we were setting up, around 6pm, the park ranger came by and gave us our park pass. Very convenient to be able to arrive after office hours. The park is beautiful and well maintained. Located approximately 20 minutes from Columbus Motor Speedway (dirt track). AT&T had one bar connection (EDGE) and was very slow and unreliable. No Wi-Fi. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this little state park. The sites are VERY large, some are very private. Of course, the lake side sites are best. I like that you can reserve the site you want, some state parks don't take reservations at all! Sites are paved with concrete patios. Wonderful for dogs. We stayed in 036 and loved the wonderful "yard" and long view of the lake. We will return often to visit relatives nearby. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Motorhome.

Apparently the State of Mississippi has entered into the business of subsidized housing. The recent policy is to allow rentals for about 20 sites by the month at a rate of about 50% the norm, which I have never seen in a state park. There were at least 3 sites in my immediate vicinity that went completely unoccupied over the holiday weekend despite having RVs parked in them. I'm sure the folks camping in the overflow, with only electricity appreciated that. Those nearby sites were starting to show signs of being rentals, as opposed to campsites. I am disappointed as this is otherwise such a nice park. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Despite what the web site says, all sites now have sewer connections. The park was recently upgraded. The sites are pretty level and well spaced. When we made reservations, the only sites listed as having sewer (1-10) are quite short and cramped. We were happy to see all sites now have full hook-ups. Hiking trail around lake was pretty.

Very nice, clean state park. When we were hooking up our microwave shorted out. Hope is wasn't from a voltage problem with that site, but we moved to a different one and everything else worked. Only stayed here one night but it seems like the type of place that we would visit again if in the area. We camped at Lake Lowndes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
