The staff was very friendly. Bathrooms were always clean. Very pet friendly. Even with our dog tried to eat fish directly in the lake. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Tent.

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.

Roosevelt State Park was built a long time ago and seems more designed for small pickup truck campers and pop-ups. It has very narrow, windy roads that go up and down a lot of hills. The campsites are narrow, back-in concrete pads. Ours was built up at the back over the edge of a ravine. Despite all that, we saw bigger 5th wheels and travel trailers. We saw 1 big motor home in a pull through site. The park is lovely and wooded with the campsites around the shores of a beautiful lake. Price reflects the Senior Citizen discount. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

I gave park such a low rating because it was advertised as Big Rig Friendly and it is not, perhaps a 32-34 would do OK. Low hanging branches and tight turns. Also, pads are either just 40 or really usable space is under. No real tent pad either, basically good for smaller trailers. The good, it is a beautiful lake front setting, lots of families and some full hook ups. Although advertised as right off Route 20 it is about 3 mi back to campsites. We would not return. Nothing in surrounding towns except a couple of fast food spots. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

Restrooms under renovation. Only clean and newly renovated was near the campground near office. Others were either out of service or too dirty to use. Those should be ready in a few months. Nice park, nice walking, and Frisbee golf. Hiking trails need better marking. Will have water slide and pool open next year. Very small lake, but pretty.

The CCC (new) campground has a number of really nice sites along the lake. As in most MS parks, all are back-ins. Ours was a full hookup. Being a state park the roads were narrow. We stayed in October which meant there was not a lot of traffic. Navigating around oncoming traffic with a 40 ft motorhome would have been nerve wracking if there had been more traffic, but now having been here once, we would definitely come again. There is a truck stop on highway 13 where you can unhook/hook your toad for more flexibility. Sites are beautiful, shaded and well sited along the lake. We walked around to see if there would be as site we would prefer next time, but they were all really nice. Get a PDF map from the state park site. We used Reserve America to make reservations and pick out our site so we knew what to expect. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is NOT big rig friendly or accessible. We tried 2 sites and walked 4 others but could not get into any of them. When we paid cash at the office, with our coach parked outside the window, the check in person never told us they could not accommodate us. After a very long time of attempting to make a successful parking, we gave up and left. They will not refund our money. They will give us credit at another park, but it will not be any better than this. We agreed to a lake side site only to discover it is a back in. We do not have a back window (duh) so it was a waste of money. Again, it should have been disclosed to us at check in that the site was a back in. We had no way of seeing the site as it is 2.5 miles into the park on a road so narrow it would not qualify as a single lane on an interstate. This was a very bad experience. We will take part of the blame for the fiasco, but the personnel in the office should disclose that a big rig won't fit or that all sites, including lake front, are back ins. If you have a big rig, do not even think about stopping here. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first camping experience with our new travel trailer. We chose this park simply because it was close to home for our fist trip. However, we will camp here again. There are lots of lake-side sites. There are more sites with sewer hook-ups than their website indicates. The park is clean, well kept and staffed by friendly employees.

This is a very nice campground only a short way off of interstate, and that it the problem. It gets freeway noise. Now, this is not a problem if you go into your RV, shut it up and turn on the AC, but if you like to spend time outside you will hear the interstate. If had not been for that, it would have received an 8 or so. We had a very nice "premium" site on the small lake. The birding was good and the view was great. It was quiet and fairly dark. The ladies at the front still did not have park maps. Apparently a lack of copiers, but no problem. We were able to find our site and find our way around the park. We would definitely stay again for an overnight, which is what we did, but would not make it a longer term destination park. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely park right off I-20, exit 77. Tall pines and rolling hills of the Bienville Natl. Forest. To clarify, there are a few pull through sites but most are back in with views of the lake, and while the bathroom was clean it was quite old and in need of a paint job. There are also 15 cabins and a 20 unit lodge. Very much appreciated the stay here. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight on our way to Auburn. It's right off the freeway. You have to watch out for low lying limbs as you drive to you site. Our site was on the lake and was beautiful. Will stay there again when we have more time to explore the area. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

First of all let me say this was a beautiful area with forest and lake, WOW! Price was cheap! Bathroom/showers were very dirty! And the worst thing is we were invaded by ants! A lot of ants! Don't know if that was just our luck of the site we chose or what. If we could stay there without the infestation we would in a heartbeat just for the scenery despite the bathroom/showers.

We were there over the July 4th weekend. It was packed. Everyone was friendly,and we had a great time. For the number of people using the restrooms, they were kept fairly clean. It is a small park and we walked it several times. It is very easy to find, just off I-20. We will be going back. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.

My husband said this was his favorite place we've stayed so far, and we've stayed in a lot of nice places!!! It's a beautiful park and a terrific rate with full hook-ups! We have a 40ft motorhome and were put in a great, level, fairly easy to get into, site. Yes, the roads are a bit narrow, but they are certainly do-able. Don't know about rain and puddling as we had beautiful weather! Would certainly stay here again! If you're not familiar (as we were not), I would recommend making sure you go over everything (including directions to your site) very thoroughly with the check-in person. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.
