1 Park near Port Gibson, Mississippi
Mar 2016 - $20.00
We stayed 3 days here while visiting the Vicksburg Battlefield sites. We initially planned only 2 days, but this campground is itself part of a military site, and has much to explore. The museum is filled with story and impressive artifacts. The surrounding historic village and cemetery are very impressive. All of this is situated in a well-maintained area nestled in a hardwood forest across the road from the Mississippi. This is the site of a once-vibrant community that was pretty much wiped out by antebellum tragedies including a yellow fever epidemic, a tornado, and a change of the course of the Mississippi River. Shortly after, it was the site where the Confederates repulsed Grant's attempt to cross the river on his way to Vicksburg.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Campsites are level on concrete pads. Quite closely spaced. During our stay, almost all of the sites were taken up by workers from the refueling project at the nearby nuclear power plant, but the managers made sure we had a comfy site. I'd call ahead before arriving to make sure a site is available. Utilities all well maintained, and we were near the clean and well-maintained laundry and showers. Wifi reception was fair at the lower campground; reportedly better at upper campground.
Great hiking opportunities directly accessible from campground.
All in all, a rustic, remote-feeling campground, which we enjoyed. - Tim B.

This one of the best kept secrets in the Port Gibson area. The campground and military park is a few miles from town but is well worth the trip. The park is quiet and clean, the staff are excellent. Sites are all concrete pads with full hook ups. WiFi can be obtained by going to the main office. We really enjoyed our stay here as we explored the area. We highly recommend it if you are in the area. - JD1040

We stayed here for five nights while touring Natchez Trace Parkway and Vicksburg National Military Park. It is a beautiful campground that is also the site of the Grand Gulf Military Park. The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable about the area. We had full hookups, 50 AMP, and rain that kept us indoors for much of the stay. We had difficulty with satellite reception because of the trees, some problems with cell phone reception, and no wireless at the RV site. However, the latter problem was solved by driving up to the office so we were able to communicate with the rest of the world when needed.
The entire park is well kept, and we highly recommend it to others. We will gladly stay again if we are in the area. Issues mentioned above were caused by nature and not within the Park's control. Also, we want to call out the park ranger, who represents the hospitality that is characteristic of Mississippi (and also Texas -- he actually came from our home state). - Ferdy
