We thought we might want to stay in the unserviced area, but after seeing the terraced campsites with a view of the lake we couldn't resist. Pretty as a picture. Clean and quiet too. The showers were hot and free. The trails could use some new markings, but we didn't get lost or have to turn around. The primitive area is outside the main gate. There is no water available there, but the sites are far apart and the road (graveled) is in good condition. They go for $7.00 per night. - GiroRV

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

No signs pointing to camp spaces-ask for a map. Typical state camp ground. Old and sites are pointing in the wrong direction for viewing the lake. The so called premium sites are not so premium-don't waste money. - kcarter

It's been almost 7 years since our last time here and not much has changed. Overall a good park and we'll definitely return but only if the sites we wrote down are available. It was raining when we arrived and since the roads in the loop we were on are pretty tight, it was an adventure backing in (and our TT is only 28'). Hookups are all good but I'd like to know WHY the picnic table and fire ring are on the same side as hookups. They have room on the awning side. The onsite store had ice, charcoal and lighter fluid (all things we forgot) plus a "slush puppie" machine which we hadn't seen forever. Cool trails to walk, awesome lake views with plenty activity that weekend - fishing rodeo, boating, etc.. One of MS's better parks in our opinion. - MOUCHIE

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
