2 Parks near Meadville, Mississippi

The good: The area has a nice lake and several great hiking trails, ranging from about a mile up to 10 miles. The camping spots were mostly level, if somewhat uneven. They had large flat areas for tents and nice fire rings. It was very quiet and dark - great star viewing between the tall pine trees. Should be nice and shady during the summer. Very clean campground, and the host was superbly friendly and helpful.
Not so good: Some sites were somewhat short, even for a TM 3023. We stayed in #3, and I had to park across the drive after unhitching to stay out of the road. This campground does not take reservations. We arrived at about 5:30 PM on Friday before MLK weekend and took one of the last two spots. The last spot was filled within 20 minutes of our arrival. Due to tree removal, one of the two campground loops was closed, so they were down to 11 of their normal 22 sites. The showers in the lower loop bathrooms got no warmer than tepid. The swimming area showers were much better. The facilities could have used a little more maintenance: broken faucet in the bathroom, broken board on the playground, aforementioned lack of hot water.
Google Maps and our GPS directed us down Wagon Wheel Road to get to the campground. This was a rough gravel road and NOT the right way. Stay on the paved road: the campground is straight ahead in a short distance. - Usafabronco

We thoroughly enjoyed soaking in the beauty of God's creation at this park. The RV sites are surrounded by towering trees. We spent a large portion of our time hiking on the trails. There are two 10+ mile trails that are accessible from the park as well as a 1 mile trail around the lake. There are lots of hills. It was almost like being in the mountains. The campground hostess was very helpful and it was obvious that she really enjoys her job. We will definitely be going back to this park. I would recommend loop B(sites 1-12) if you have a large motorhome. - Sojourner9

Most sites are small and close together. We arrived in the middle of a weekday and found the place full, except for 2 sites that we could not fit in, so we moved on. - housecar

Coming in on a Saturday night we didn't have reservations because Mississippi requires you to book Friday and Saturday night. Worked out well as we got a senior discount and no reservation fee! Park is very pretty and the lake is beautiful. Bathrooms are air conditioned which seems to be rare in state parks. Showers were decent and had hot water. One of the toilets was left running all night and I never saw a camp host. My site was a little hard to back into as the roads were narrow. - Ocotillo

We've stayed here several times in years past. It's been a while since we were here last but we love this park. The park is nestled in the woods and the lake is beautiful. There currently is no fishing in the lake because it was just restocked after being drawn down for repairs on the dam. However, boating is still allowed. Fishing is supposed to resume in 2017. There is also a golf course on the property.
The staff is very friendly and there is a "camp store" in the campground that has the essentials for camping. I suggest taking a walk on the South end of the lake around the dam area. Very nice scenery. There are also cabins and group cabins for rent. There is a great seafood restaurant about 10 minutes North of the campground entrance called Mr. Whiskers. Very good food, friendly staff and good prices. Check it out.
We had 3 campers in our group and enjoyed the weekend. We cooked out, sat out by a roaring campfire, walked the property, and had a great time. - mike9767
