Perfect for an overnight just north of Hattiesburg. Lots of long term but mostly well maintained. Easily accessible with our 40' fiver and extra vehicle. Staff friendly and accommodating. Didn't use facilities but everything wit our site worked just fine. We did not connect to cable so we can't say how good that was. WiFi was typical for a campground. Basic internet access. Perfect for our needs. Cute country store nearby. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at Shady Cove for an extended period of time. We are full-timers so we are in a lot of RV Parks. We found the manager and her husband unfriendly and almost confrontational and defensive with simple questions, although they did have fairly good availability by cell phone. The 50 amp service fried our electric cord and we had to get a new one as soon as we pulled out (that was when we found it when we unhooked, thankful it had not caused a fire). The park was not well-maintained with the grass often growing to our knees before it would be mowed. The wi-fi was not usable. The cable TV was good with approximately 30 channels. The showers and bathroom appeared to not be cleaned daily. We did not use the laundry facility to rate it. The lighting is minimal so we stayed in anytime after dark. There are only dirt roads and the sites do not even have gravel (just dirt), so when it rained we were buried in mud. The owner seems to be more accommodating to the numerous long-timers in the park that have full sites of 'stuff' so it is obvious they are not going anywhere (less than tidy), rather than RVers. This was one of the worst RV Parks we have ever stayed in and would not recommend it or return. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped at the Shady Cove RV Park for one night and the park owners were very nice and accommodating allowing for easy after hours check in. The sites were gravel and level, the gravel area outside of the parking pad was a little on the muddy side. The trails were plentiful for walking the dogs although they were quite wet. Water, sewer, and 50 amp hook ups were very nice. The cable connection was very strong with over 40 channels. We did not have a code to access the bathhouses but the surrounding area was clean and well kept. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an old run down campground with lots of full timers. Most units are not well maintained. It works for a quick overnight but I think we will look elsewhere when we travel through again. Didn't check the restrooms / showers. Utilities worked as they should. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good access. Quiet and shady. A little soggy in some areas due to recent then overnight rain. Pet friendly. Nice people. Wifi worked. I would stay here again. My only real complaint is that they are too close to the Watermelon patch shoe store right up the road. Yes, we had to go by there the next morning so the wife could buy 3 pairs of sandals. We would still be there if I hadn't stopped her at 3. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Old run down facilities. No one was in the office even though we were checking in during the posted office hours. The sites were okay, and it was like camping in an open field with hookups. There was something wrong with the electrical connection as it fried our 30 to 50 amp adapter. We were just stopping for the night or we would have found someplace else. We would not have felt comfortable leaving the motorhome unattended at this campground. We would not recommend this campground to anyone and would not stay here again. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed overnight. Cash Only. Road maintenance past due. Maintenance and cleaning did not appear to be a priority. Some permanent residents were not particularly tidy. We would try somewhere else next time. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This has been a very nice park in the past. Obviously the current owners are only interested in pipe liners and long term-er. Way over priced at 33.00 for what you receive. I will say the park was quiet, large pull thru site which was uphill. No Wi-Fi, no cable, no pool, no pick nick table. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Would have rated this place much higher if not for the bathrooms and showers. Although they are tiled and in good condition, there seems to be no maintenance. All three toilets were without toilet paper for days. Showers never seem to be cleaned. The dumpster has been overflowing for days. With a bit of TLC this is/could be a nice campground. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The manager was very helpful and took us to our lot. The wireless was excellent, no cable TV but we got several local channels. We wouldn't hesitate to camp here again. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The office was already closed when we arrived. Posted at the office was an eraser board listing the sites available for us to use. The sites were poorly marked and in a random order. We had difficulty maneuvering through the park. We would only stay here again as a last resort. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Motorhome.

We picked this park because it was listed as the only Good Sams Park in Hattiesburg. We arrived just at dusk and the office had already closed. We proceeded to find a spot and were met with horrible, bumpy roads; the spots were randomly numbered and impossible to figure out; it looked like people were living in tiny little campers permanently. The only positive about this park was it was right off the hwy. We probably would not stay here again. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park in on a hill, but generally level. Sites are long and roads are wide with gravel. Electricity had good voltage and good water pressure. Lots of shade. There were some longtimers and older trailers, but they are spotty. We will return. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The lady in the office was very nice. The place is pretty unkempt although the facilities at our site functioned just fine. This could be a pretty campground if it was given some TLC and some of the monthlies need to clean up their sites. The price was very reasonable at $22.

Stayed here overnight on the way to Destin. Manager friendly, left envelope out for our late arrival, and arranged for a pull through big enough for us to leave our truck hooked up. Park was OK for overnight stay but smelled like sewer and seemed to have a lot of longer term residents. Lots of nice trees but place seemed a little unkempt. Roads little rough with some washouts and parking spaces were not very level. Didn't really see anything wrong but did not feel as safe as we would have liked. Park was adequate for overnight stay but would not consider staying in it any longer than overnight. We camped at Shady Cove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
