Incredible! We are sitting 20' from the lake. Flat pad and room for my truck. Beautiful breeze, quiet and relaxing. This park is a winner. We arrived at 1 pm and we drove around and picked an available site. Don't listen to the reviews about narrow roads; they were fine. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Plenty of room to back in our 32ft class C. Stayed in the "Old" campground, site 13. Mostly level site, about 100 feet from the water. Pretty view of the water through the trees. Lots of critter noises at sunset & after dark. Nice campfire going in the very large fire ring. Motorboat traffic on lake. Road noise from ?I20/Rte13?, but it won't keep me awake inside the rig. There appears to be a smattering of long-termers here, but there are plenty of sites available on this Wednesday night. When we took a walk around, there was a small amount of trash left by inconsiderate lazy campers evident, and this should have been handled by park staff by now, but not enough to make the place feel dirty by any means. Staff have been exceptionally nice, on phone and at check-in. If you're looking for a resort atmosphere, this isn't your place. If you want to relax in the woods, this is a good spot. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

FILTHY bath houses--to the point of being unhealthy. Dirty sinks, toilets, grimy floor and walls and even excrement on walls and floor. No towels, soap and ran out of toilet paper. A rusty pool of water with floating toilet paper over a floor drain. And when I brought this situation to the attention of a maintenance person, he said he would look into it--but couldn't drive away fast enough without even stopping at the bath house.

Campsite was littered with paper and cigarette butts. Grill full of ashes. Fire ring missing, but there was a full pile of trash and ashes where it used to be. Most sites are very short for any rig over 30 feet. The only presence seen of the rangers was to pick up trash bags from the road--or once across the road to check to see if there was enough power for a karaoke machine (really). To bad. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoy staying at Roosevelt Park. Clean, friendly-helpful staff, always there to serve. We love the family atmosphere. We stayed in several different sites, each has its own good points, of course we like being close to the water but if you wait until close to camping time you may not get that spot. Already looking forward to our next time there. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in. All hookups worked well. Although there was no wifi available, my Verizon cell phone and jet pack worked fine. OTA tv channels were clear and accessible (there were 27). Our back-in campsite overlooked the lake. Tall pine trees added lots of shade and there was plenty of space between campers. There was a little bit of an edge getting into the campsite but the site itself was level. The campground is just one mile off the interstate. We would absolutely stay here again. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great value in a very pretty location. The campground is on a small lake and has some nice hiking trails. You can hear a little bit of noise from the Interstate, but it's not too bad. The bathrooms could use a makeover. There's no latches on the stall doors. Also quite a few rust stains and paint splatters. But, they clean it every day so it's acceptable. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There's some nice hiking trails in the park, and in the nearby Bienville National Forest. Also, the Natchez Trace Parkway is a good scenic drive.

This could be one of our favorite parks. Beautiful lake, woods, places to walk. Lots of space between sites. This park is three hours from home, so we will be back again. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

Located on a nice lake that is big enough for skiing. Sites are large with many on the water. There is a "regular" swimming pool plus in the CCC Loop there is a swimming area in the lake. Park personnel come by several tomes per day and pick up trash right at your campsite. A good lake for "bank" fishing if you don't have a boat. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older campground with two different camping areas. With our big rig, we chose to have 50amp which took us to the CCC side. The route is a narrow 1-2 mile drive through the park. The very helpful office staff worked with us to allow a transfer from the site we have previously reserved online (#90) to site #47 which allowed for better leveling of our 40', 4-slide Class A. Many lake-side sites will hold a big rig, but the concrete pads are only about 20ft long and the asphalt "driveways" are a drop down into the site. Roadways, while paved, are rough and narrow with some drop-offs at site entrances. Utilities worked well, as did our Verizon cell and MiFi. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

We used the park as our base to explore Jackson and parts of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Geocachers will note that there are caches within the park and several in the surrounding area. The park has good freeway and county road access for exploring.

We had a great time at this state park located in the beautiful Bienville National Forest. They have some nice, well-marked hiking trails (approximately 4 miles total) and an excellent disc golf course. If you want even more hiking, the 20+ mile Shockaloe Trail (closed during winter months) is approximately 5 miles from the park. We enjoyed riding our bikes throughout the park. Roosevelt State Park has two RV camping areas. We were in the "old" campground area. The restrooms and showers were clean. There are many sites with an excellent view of the beautiful lake. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were able to get internet access on our phones. The park is easy to find and right off of I-20. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this campground for just one night. As a state park, it has all the amenities we needed, except we had a back-in site (the pull through was only 30 amp). It is a beautiful park, with an abundance of tall trees which prevented us from getting satellite service. We had to drive a paved, narrow 1 mile road that circled around the lake to get to our particular space, but this park provided us a great place to stay. We recommend this campground to others and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful park! Unfortunately, we only stayed here one night on our way home. The campground loop we stayed on has a newly renovated bath house. It is very clean, the showers are great (lots of hooks for hanging things too) & it is convenient to all of the sites. Many sites are on the lake and most of the others have a lake view. Our site had a sloping drive but the pad was level. My only criticism is that the park's roads are narrow in some areas & we had a hard time finding the office. We had paid in advance, so we went to our site & set up. About an hour later, a park ranger came by and was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The rate reflects a 30 amp full hookup site with a senior discount. Mississippi is certainly to be commended for extended the senior discount to all seniors, not just state residents. You cannot beat that rate for a full hookup site. The park is very convenient from Interstate 20, only about 5 minutes away. There are two campgrounds in the park, one called “Old Campground” and one “New Campground” – not very creative names. We had stayed there before in the “New Campground” with 50 amps. This time when we checked in we asked the very nice and helpful lady what might be the site with less Interstate noise. She suggested the Old Campground with 30 amp hookups, so we went for that. It is marginally quieter and seems a lot calmer. However, it is certainly not for big rigs. We are only 27feet long and I would not take anything longer than 30 feet or so into this campground. The turns are tight and many of the sites slope so that leveling for a longer RV would be an issue. Our Verizon phone and data were strong. Most sites would not have satellite, but we were able to find a hole for DirecTV. This park could use some TLC. It seems to be OK to build a fire anywhere and that has been done to create an unsightly campground. Even with all of this, we would certainly stay here again for an overnight on a journey. It is not a destination park. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

Close to I-20 which is great for travelers but you do get some highway noise. we stayed in the CCC campground. Our site was fairly private. The other campers were not as friendly as some campgrounds. In MS there is no Wi-Fi and apparently no one at the gate house. The walking in this park was good. The weather turned cold so we did not enjoy the lake as much as we wanted. they claim to have laundry facilities but there was one washer on a porch and no dryer. It would be a good overnight stop but not for long. I think the other campground looked better but not all those sites had sewer there. A lot of sites are short and poorly laid out i.e. table and barbecue behind your rig sharp drop-offs, etc. No set fire ring just built fires wherever suited you. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.
