A very nice quiet campground close to Natchez, MS. The sites are spacious and reasonably private. Our Verizon internet was barely usable, cell phone was OK. Not a good park to use if you need internet access for work. Otherwise a good jumping off point to visit Natchez or when driving the Natchez Trace. We would stay here again. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Good jumping off point to explore the city of Natchez, its mansions and close to the southern end of the Natchez Trace.

Site 39 was beautiful. Partial water view through the trees. Loved everything about this park with one exception. No cell service. Would highly recommend. Natchez was one of the highlights of our travels so far this past 4 months. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

We were here during some very bad weather and tornado warning. The Ranger instructed us on what to do and placed us near the bathroom if we needed to seek shelter. Thank goodness we did not need to do this. The camp site was nice and level with water and electric hookup. Lots of trees. We were there only over night and were happy with the site. Looked around the park and it looked great and would stay here again. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

Most sites were very nice. The pull throughs were few and lacked privacy. They had reserved signs at our site so we could go straight there which was good as the ranger station was closed at the time we arrived. The ranger did tell us that if we took the trails to watch out for ticks. We kept our walking to the road. Met a lot of "snowbirds" heading home. It was fun talking to people from all over. It was very quiet. This was the most level concrete pad we have ever had. We were in campground B which is much nicer than campground A. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty park with a trail leading directly to the water from our campsite in B loop. The road leading to the state park from Hwy 61 was in need of repairs and looks like part could flood in heavy rains. We never met the staff since we arrived late and left the next day. You can take Hwy 61 direct to downtown Natchez, or take the prettier Natchez Trace highway just a mile down the road for a more scenic drive. We would stay here again.

Wooded park, some sites in B loop have lake view. Pads were concrete and mostly level, fire rings, and tables, sites are a little small for State Park, but enough room. Loop B is much better for motor homes than Loop A. Nice clean park, roads coming to park off Hwy 61 are a little narrow, and you have to watch for low branches, but not a problem. Just off Natchez trace, and not far from Natchez, MS. Would stay here again We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

To wake up in the morning in this State Park was a joy! Great sites, great bathrooms, and great nature! Our price reflects a Senior discount. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Don't use any mapping system to find this excellent campvround! From the north, highway 61 10 miles north of Natchez is the only fool proof entrance. Beautiful lake, wooded sites but just a few with full hook-ups. Only minutes from Natchez. Great spot for us. Only one channel of antenna tv...great! We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

The park was busier than I expected for this time of year. Bow hunting is allowed in the woods and most of the campsites seemed to be occupied by hunters. There were two pull through sites in our section, the remainder were back in sites. I think this would be hard to navigate for big rigs, plus there is a long windy drive to the park from the highway. Staff warned us not to walk the dogs in the woods due to ticks, but because if the hunting I didn't want to venture there anyway! Not my favorite of parks and I don't think we would stop there again, with the many other choices around. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

Even though previous reviews gave helpful directions, we still got a little lost. We finally found a turn-around spot on a very narrow road, but we had to wait until another motorhome unhitched and backed out of the same turn-around. We paid too much attention to our smartphone's navigation directions. Hopefully, the following will help others. Exit US61 1.4-miles east from the Natchez Trace Parkway interchange. From US61, turn south on to State Park Road. Proceed south for a short 0.3-miles. Turn left on to Wickcliff Road, which is not well marked. Ignore the State Park sign at this intersection, which directs you to an alternative entrance to Loop A. Proceed east on Wickcliff Road for a short 0.4-miles. You will see a large masonry portal to Natchez State Park. Exit south from Wickcliff Road, and proceed 1.4 miles on the unnamed paved Park road, past Loop A to Loop B. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our stay here. We will return to enjoy more of historic Natchez. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is just a short distance off Natchez Trace Parkway and about 13 miles from Natchez. The route in to the park is an interesting one. From highway 61 you turn on to State Park Road. You drive a short distance on a rough section of road with abandoned buildings nearly sitting on the pavement. Then, to get to the state park campground (and you want Loop B) you actually turn off of State Park Road on to Wickcliff Road and after a few minutes you come to a nice park entry. After that, you are still a couple of miles from the campground. Whoever put this campground together could give lessons on campground design. The sites are level, paved, big enough, and angled so they are easy to back in to. The campground has 50 amp electric and water, but no sewer hookups. The dump station is right at the entry to the campground and it, too, is an easy in and out. This is a big state park with a nice lake. The campground, though, isn’t really on the lake – although there are a few sites down on the end of the campground that have a partial view of the lake though the trees. There are rental cabins, though, a mile or so from the campground that are built with beautiful lake views. I was able to get a good satellite signal although I'm sure that some sites don't lend themselves to satellite use. My Verizon cell service is working fairly good with the signal booster along with about 3 bars of 3G data. Obviously, this is Mississippi and a late summer stay here would include plenty of humidity and mosquitoes. The October weather during our stay here has been absolutely perfect. This is an excellent base of operations for exploring nearby Natchez, MS or a good spot to stay while traveling Natchez Trace Parkway. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Of the three Mississippi State Parks I have camped in, this one was the best designed and cleanest. Sites were concrete and level. W & E worked just fine. Dump station well designed. Two loops, the A and the B, are separated by about a mile. The A Loop had relatively short sites and is at the perimeter of the park across from some less-than-stellar homes. The B Loop is embedded in the park. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Waterfront is questionable. When the trees are leafed out, it is a challenge to see the lake. We were told to avoid trails due to ticks. There is no playground, and we saw no children on the July 4 weekend. DTV was limited to NBC and PBS. CSpire phone service was two bars and 1 byte per light year. Getting to the park will challenge you, and your GPS. Use US 61 north of the exit from the Natchez Trace Parkway. Avoid Tate Road or State Park Road from US 84/98. If you have to go to the office on a first come/serve registration, the turnabout at the office will be tight in a large 5th or motor home. Getting out of the park, there are no signs directing drivers to US 61, confusing because the forest all looks alike. We would camp in this park again if in the area. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

You have to "travel thru" a run down area to get to the state park...this can be "off putting". Because we had a 38 foot RV, we opted to camp in campground B. Either way, this is the nicer of the two campgrounds. If you have a long rig, I would encourage you to park your rig in a spot and then report to the state park/campground offices. We did note that some spots had sewer in addition to water/ electric. Since we were not needing sewer, and most of the spots, with sewer, were reserved we opted for the 18 bucks a night, option. Very quiet, scenic and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We got here after dark and it was hard to find our site because there was no check in station and no one to get a map from. When we did find the site, it was a little difficult to pull in the small slots. Our site was great with a view of the lake and within walking distance of the showers. The showers and restrooms were very clean and heated. The lake here holds the Mississippi state record bass. We did not do any fishing but it looks really nice. No Wi-Fi and we could not even get cell phone service in loop B by the lake. Overall very nice campground especially for fishermen. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Travel Trailer.
