We stayed in this campground for 3 days Excellent hosts. The campground was clean and well maintained. They even gave us a tour of Hattiesburg and couldn't do enough for us We would stay there again. We camped at Eagle Nest RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Go and eat at the Front Porch restaurant good food
Electric & water problems which caused damage to RV equipment; broken car & RV windows caused by lawn service (the only damage that was reimbursed). Wi-Fi never works; dirt site not level and needed constant adjustments; 6” of water pooled at front door when it rained (every afternoon in summer). Damage to outdoor items when owners cut down a tree which fell 3 ft from our RV. MANY undesirables with ragged shower curtain tents and ragged RVs that are no longer fully functioning. Caters to the poor, disabled and those feigning disability (quite a few). Mississippi is an open carry state so owners shot neighborhood cats next to our RV; owners were shooting blindly into woods after report of trespasser rather calling police; owners and some residents have guns strapped on their waist and use for almost ANY reason. One long term camper with a body and paint shop inside a tent. No amenities, but cheap. Owners not responsive to complaints, and will not reimburse damage voluntarily. Just not what we would consider a safe place to park for any length of time. We camped at Eagle Nest RV Park in a Motorhome.
Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $23.00
What's right: The sites are bigger than most private parks and are grassy. The grounds are professionally cared for. The roads are gravel. Some sites have concrete pads, others are dirt. Many have shaded yards for at least part of the day. The only amenity is a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers. It is very clean. It is close to a state park where fishing and camping is allowed. It allows pets on leash and they are sticklers for this. Some tenants have sheds. Whats wrong: There were many old ratty RVs and trailers, and their sites looked as if they had been there quite a while gathering junk and trash. Several looked like hoarders. There was one really nice RV but next door was a dump with a three foot tall pile of trash. Tarps hung on roofs and fences from front to back. We spoke to a camper before we moved in who told us it was mostly military and disabled. But while I was there I had a lady who cooked drugs at night in her RV next to mine. An ex-HS teacher and his student girlfriend and their child. Asked to watch another elderly man's 23 year-old wife and report her activity to the office. And a couple on disability that looked like they were opening a junk store next to my RV. Prior to this there was the man who was allowed to rebuild a car in his lot including the priming and painting! Right next to another RV and across the street from one that looked expensive! All with the knowledge and/or consent of the park owners. Hence the cheap monthly rent of $295. I needed a place longer than I stayed but just could not keep feeling unsafe and like I was living in the twilight zone. We camped at Eagle Nest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
