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). We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Vicksburg is a lovely town and history abounds. The Vicksburg Military Park is nearby and well worth the tour. Port Gibson is not really a city that you would want to tour -- we were somewhat disappointed that the town was a bit run down. Wal-Marts are close to Vicksburg, and Port Gibson has a Piggly Wiggly that is sufficient. The campground is not conducive to bicycle riding as most of the area is uphill and downhill.

Very nice clean park, lower campground is better for motorhomes. Sites are on small side, no fires allowed in lower campground. Lots of history, very nice staff. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

This park is 7 miles off the main highway on a good tar road. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The camping spots slope from front to back and it is hard to level, although they are concrete slabs. The electric amps are good as is the water pressure. It is a beautiful place with easy access to the Mississippi River. The history of the place is well presented with a lot of civil war period buildings, wagons and interesting artifacts. The museum is excellent. The cost of everything is covered in the camping fee. I would stay here again. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

Incredible park. One of the most amazing places I've ever had the pleasure of staying. Miles and miles of hiking trails, truly incredible history, great museum, thoroughly amazing old graveyard, more stuff to do and see at this park than my wife and I could do in three days. The Mississippi River is a short walk from the park. I look forward to going back for another stay. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

Really liked this park! A lot of history, it was part of the Battle of Vicksburg. A great fire tower to see the river. Also you can drive down and set close to the river and watch barges. Lost are close together on the bottom, upper was hard to get in we dragged back bottom. They said it had better cel coverage. I had to walk up the hill to get it, but still nice. Would stay here again. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Warm welcome, friendly staff, shade sites, clean, neat piece of land, quiet and peaceful. We liked it a lot. Interesting museum. Free Wi-fi at the museum/office. A little negative is that the next supermarkets/restaurants/shops are 7 miles away, but we are towing a car- so no problem for us. We would, of course, stay in this park again. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

Showers/toilet area were clean but dated, no biggie as all the site are full hook up. I was rushed for time and was unable to see the museum and exhibits, but they did seem well kept and interesting as I drove through. The majority of the sites sites seemed large, accommodating and shaded with beautiful shade trees. Campground is locate in a remote area and is very quite. Do not expect much of Port Gibson, MS... No major support services only a small Piggly Wiggly and a Dollar General. Also be advised that it is located next to Nuclear Plant (less than 1/2 mile) so have your insurance policies/wills in place just in case... No over air TV reception, fair cell and broadband coverage. Worth checking out at least once. Travel safe. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lower sites are easy to get backed into, and the upper sites you have to climb a steep hill to get to, but the sites are easy to get backed into. The upper sites you have several long term residents. Better cell service on the hill. Autumn time brings out the ladybugs. The sunny side of our 5th wheel attracted thousands of the little buggers. Ah, Mother nature. Great staff and a lot of Civil War History. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place if you are a history buff. The RV sites are in the Military Monument Park so it is a destination park as well as a place to spend one night (as we did). Beautiful sites with very friendly park host. The Mississippi River is just a short bicycle ride down a park road. The bath house was clean, warm on a cool morning, with plenty of HOT water. However, there is only one shower and one has to climb up a set of stairs. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

Paved roads with concrete pads, level first try! Very friendly staff. Great historical environment. Worth the seven miles to get to it. All back-in sites, and watch for tree limbs. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We drove down from Vicksburg on 61 to Grand Gulf Road to get to this state park. The drive off of 61 is about 7 miles on a curvy road but even big rigs won’t have problems with it. You do drive by a Nuclear Plant. The lower loop campground is easier for big rigs to get into because the upper loop is straight up a short hill. We selected the upper because it has better TV reception and my husband wanted to watch the Celtics/Heat playoff game. The park itself is interesting and hilly. Your campground fee allows you to drive or walk around the park. There is a museum which displays the history of Grand Gulf, the civil war battle that took place here and how the Mississippi River affects the small town. Outside the museum there is an old church, water mill and house, Fort Wade, Spanish House, Old Grand Gulf Cemetery, Rifle Pits, Observation Tower, Gun Emplacements. We walked around the whole park on a hot, humid day and it was the first time in four weeks that we have been attacked by bugs. There is a half mile drive across the street to the banks of the Mississippi where you can see barges coming and going but we could not drive or bike it because most of the road is already underwater and they expect that when the river crests by May 15 most of this park will be underwater. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is based on weekly rate for FHU 50 amp site. Roads are asphalt, pads are concrete, and are located on two levels, with a short steep hill up to the upper level. We stayed on the upper level and had good satellite and Verizon coverage from our site, which was the pull through at the top of the hill. There are a number of permanents who work at the nearby nuclear power plant, but they are all in the upper area. While some distance from Port Gibson the park has a great museum and other exhibits relating to the history of the area and Civil War battle fought here. The staff was the best we have ever experienced, and we would definitely stay again in this hidden gem of an RV park. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

If you want to camp amidst history then this is the place for you. Grand Gulf is a jewel. The setting is beautiful. The sites are level concrete pads with picnic tables. There is a community grill at the pavilion. The park is filled with historical buildings, machinery and Civil War battle sites. It is well labeled and the roads are paved throughout the park. There is an upper level and a lower level. We camped in the lower level. Everything was spotlessly clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We arrived after closing hours and the Park Ranger came to the gate to help us and left his lights on in his truck to help up find a spot and get maneuvered into the site. Very well spaced sites. Port Gibson is well worth the time it takes to do the walking tour through the historic district. The office is also a great museum with some articles that I had never seen before. We will to back. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are concrete, streets are paved. Some shade trees. Basically no cell or aircard service, sometimes you get 1 bar with AT&T or Verizon. Park is 8 miles from Port Gibson which has limited grocery shopping etc. Management is great, there is a museum here and Civil War history. We would stay here again. Water pressure is good and voltage is good. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We accidentally found our way to this jewel and would gladly stay here again. It was a beautiful setting, our hosts and museum guides were more than helpful and fun to talk with, and we really regretted having to leave and go on with our trip. A real find! We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.
