We arrived as a storm was brewing and the Operations Manager, Bud came to our rig and said just go get set up in any available site, and come to the office whenever it's convenient. So we selected the lower campground, site 11. We very much enjoyed our stay. We visited the museum, the park displays, and the other areas near the river. We were able to receive DISH satellite, and Verizon 4GLTE at about 3mb, which was acceptable. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

What a nice campground! We were pleasantly surprised at this out of the way place. Since we are not self-contained, showers and bathrooms are an important criteria. From earlier reviews, we knew we needed to park in the upper area. The facilities were well kept and clean. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Tent Trailer.

A really nice quiet park. Just know that it is very remote down a long road from the main road of Rt 61. Very spotty phone and data coverage. OTA TV had about 4 channels so bring a book. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The park has a nice but hilly walk of a 1 1/2 mile around the park and several buildings of historical value. The sites were very well spaced, shaded, and were cement. The only problem was the sewer hookup that was at the end of the site which required a 20 ft. hose. We visited Port Gibson for about 1/2 hour, not much there and seemed very depressed. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice RV Park that I would call a gem in hiding. We enjoyed a 2-night stay and were treated very well by the check-in staff and campground host. A short drive to the bank of the Mississippi River is very enjoyable. The Civil War museum and historic buildings are very enjoyable. My wife and I found this park a couple of years ago when passing through the area. We knew at this time we would desire to return and camp at Grand Gulf.

I would be happy to stay at this park again in the future. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

This park is close to the Natchez Trace. My wife and I took a day trip to Natchez, MS and visited the Windsor Ruins along the way. We enjoyed visiting Stanton Hall and the Carriage House Restaurant. The people of this lovely community were very friendly and helpful.

If you need tv (unless you have satellite), wifi (unless you have a personal hotspot), and phone service (unless you're willing to travel 5 miles into town), this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, you'll like this campground. There's an upper and a lower campground. You have to go up a steep hill to get to the upper campground so we stayed in the lower one, and we're glad we did. The upper campground is where the tent sites are located, and they're put to good use by scout troops and school groups on the weekend. The road into the campground is narrow, but the campground was practically empty while we were there so it wasn't an issue. The campground is a perfect place to relax, the people are nice, and the museum and battlefield are free for campers. You can wash your RV for $5 and your car for $2. The laundry has two washers ($1) and two dryers ($0.75). There's a shower/restroom at the upper campground. The shower/restroom/laundry for the lower campground is at the top of a hill, but there are stairs to get to it or you can drive up to it. Since we would rather use the shower and bathroom in our RV anyway, this wasn't a concern for us. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

The Old Country Store Restaurant on Rt. 61 in Lorman has an all-you-can-eat buffet for $15.95 that is absolutely great. Home-cooked Southern food, including the best fried chicken we've ever had. If you're lucky, Mr. D will be there and will serenade you at your table.

Interesting Civil War era attributes which included a museum, buildings and signage. The host worked in the museum, but also was available to help with obtaining camping sites. We stayed on the "upper level' camp ground which tended to have smaller vehicles, trailers and some tenters. Note that you do not get the same senior or military discounts here as in other Mississippi State Parks. This is a private camp associated with the Mississippi State Parks. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.

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

Tips for other Campers:

Take a walk up the hill on the wooded trails or road from this campground. Impressive old cemetery, observation tower, and well-preserved rife and artillery emplacements.

The Vicksburg National Battlefield site is very impressive. Plan at least 4 hours. Don't miss the preserved USS Cairo ironclad with all of it's salvaged artifacts which is on the driving route.

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. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.
