FHU park. Quiet. Bathhouse and restrooms look recently remodeled. Road and sites were a little tight but nothing that couldn't be managed. There were several rigs there much bigger than our 25 foot travel trailer. Get ready to see lots of deer. Every morning and evening they migrate right through the park. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Travel Trailer.

One of a few MS State Parks with full hook-ups within 1.5 hour drive from Memphis! Peaceful, quiet and situated on beautiful Enid reservoir. Deer and other wildlife are abundant. Bathhouse is due for a fresh-up and they are clean. Flushable toilets and hot water showers. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Yacona Ridge campground is on the water, stay here! Jones Creek campground is not on the water and is not as well kept as Yacona CG. Plenty of room for motorhomes, 5th wheels and travel trailers.

Yocona Ridge Campground. This is one of the older campgrounds at the lake. The roads are very tight for rigs over 30 ft. Site 27 is still the best. Right on the lake. Large mature trees for shade. The pavement needs resurfacing that's the only downside. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wish we had gotten here earlier in the day... but by the time we arrived it was pitch black. I had called ahead and they said to just find a spot and pay the next morning. We tried Site #2 in Yacona Ridge, but my tester said the electrical was reversed polarity. I walked to Site #3, and the breaker wouldn't stay put. Finally got lucky with Site #4... good power, good water, though sewer was a bit of a reach for my tube. The site, though not level, was tolerable for one night. There were other RVers, but only about 20% of the sites we saw were filled.

Being a state park, there was no WiFi, but with 2 bars of Verizon and 3 bars of Karma, we were able to do some next-day planning without too much of a hassle.

The next morning, the view we had was spectacular with both the lake in the short distance and beautiful trees all around. As we toured around we came across a herd of ten deer, adding to the idyllic setting. It was very quiet, very peaceful (though it may be different when the weathers isn't cold and windy!).

The park personnel were friendly and helpful. We would enjoy coming back here with more time and warmer weather! We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Motorhome.

We absolutely loved this park. My oldest enjoyed fishing with his Dad while my younger son had a wonderful time playing with the other children at the playground. There are deer that can be seen late afternoon walking around in the field behind the campsites. The only downside was that the lake was low and there were not any sites that were very close to the water. Even with this, we will still be going back. The park even held a wonderful Easter egg hunt on the Saturday prior to Easter Sunday. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are 2 campgrounds in the park-Yocona Ridge has 35 reservable sites (Reserve America) and Jones Creek has 48 1st come 1st served sites. *There are 13 cabins near Yocono Ridge, so only 83 total campsites. The road going into the Jones Creek is gravel and bad. The pool is not in operation. The place is beautiful but showing it's age and lack of help. The road in to Yocono Ridge is OK but narrow and larger rigs will find a bit of difficulty, but sites can accommodate 40 footers. Note that SENIORS get a $20 site for $14, but you must ask for it or reserve properly. Verizon cell service works well. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Motorhome.

I am a regular at this park and it seems budget cuts are starting to take a toll. Installed grills and picnic tables looking rough. The park itself is great though. Yocona ridge has lots of sites on the water, very peaceful and shaded. Mississippi should just raise the user fees and take care of infrastructure, and you will have a premier park! We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

WE DID NOT STAY AT THIS PARK. Made the reservation with Reserve America. Arrived at campground only to find out a truck was parked at my site. After getting it moved, pulled into site only to find out electric box was too far for hookup with my camper. Water connection had no handle to turn it on. Pulled out of site trying to locate a campground host or someone else while pulling my camper. Too many tight turns and other campers in area. Left campground without talking to anyone. Arrived at approximately 2:30PM CDT, no one was even at the front gate. Contacted Reserve America via email, awaiting reply. Will definitely NEVER VISIT HERE AGAIN. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped in the Yacona Ridge area, mostly waterfront and very nice! Just the right amount of vegetation to make it secluded but still possible to pull my trailer through. It has a pool, restaurant, a beautiful view and access to the interstate. Great spot! We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good park to camp. Had friendly staff, and the ranger patrols regularly. Had lots of space, level parking, electric and water was close. While it's an older par, the rest rooms and showers were clean. Will camp here again. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Tent Trailer.

The park has two campgrounds. We stay in the Jones Creek Campground. The bathhouse was old and in need of repair and cleaning. Our site had only a 30 amp service with low voltage (98 to 106 volts the entire weekend. Lots of kids for our grand kids to play with. several campers had unruly pets that keep the rest us up at night. Would probably stay at one of the near by Army Core of Engineers Campgrounds if in the area again. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here one night in a 36' motorhome. There are two campgrounds. First was full, so we stayed in the second. There was a total of about 5 families in this large state park campground. Very quiet, very shaded. Just what we like! The main downside was the lack of cleanliness in the bathrooms. Very old and showing it! We would not take a shower here. Limbs all over the sidewalk, and parking pads. What a shame, an otherwise nice park! We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Motorhome.

There is a lot to do at this state park. They offer a good disk golf course, putt-putt golf, nice swimming pool, and great playground. Our favorite thing about this area is the evening and morning deer visits. The area deer population wander through the Yocona Ridge campground every evening around 4:00 p.m. They have two campgrounds, Yocona Ridge and Jones Creek. Jones Creek is the overflow area and not nearly as nice as Yocona Ridge. We camp here a lot, but visitors should expect dirty bathroom facilities, and not so friendly staff. We camped at George P Cossar State Park in a Travel Trailer.
