I stayed here for three nights in site 32 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. I have stayed here once before. So hard to review. I love this park but its upkeep is not good. Campground road after fee station almost looks squalid -- trailer, abandoned outbuilding, two dumpsters, torn up road -- then the first section of the park which has built up sites that back up to the lake. These are many of the ones with the steep drop offs that people talk about in other reviews. Most are small, many of the pads are broken up, but the sites were full on Saturday and people tent and hang out in the shady grassy areas down the hill toward the lake. Continuing on the road you pass the bathhouse and make a sharp right turn -- and it is like another park. Sites are larger and spacious and shady although the pads continue to be pretty short. But many have level asphalt roads which make them functionally much longer. Most still have some kind of drop off but not near as steep. Most have a huge grassy shady area behind your camper with table and fire pit. If you don't want a drop off the sites across the road from the lake are level and shady and back up to lovely woods. This is not a big rig park. The section past the bath house was nearly empty while I was there over the weekend -- I suspect because the bathhouse at that end is closed and it is a long way to the other bathhouse -- as in you might want to drive and there is very little parking. It's a shame. Also the lake is low and because of fractures in its bed will continue to be. However, the hiking trails are the best ever -- the Outcropping Trail may be one of the most beautiful trails in any state park. But bring your inner mountain goat -- this is not a trail for small children. You can take a canoe trip on Bear Creek for $42. Its worth it. Verizon worked fine. Entrance right off Natchez Trace -- don't listen to your phone. It is miles from the campground to the day use area. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

Hike the trails. The CCC built them and they are amazing. There is a Walmart and coin laundry in Iuka. Sites 31 and 32 are great sites.

Park is wooded and naturally beautiful, but many of the facilities are showing their age and lack of funds. The lake is somewhat low right now, needing repairs. The bathrooms and showers in the RV camping area are nice. There's a cool swinging bridge in the park that crosses Bear Creek, where you can book a float trip in canoes. There's a swimming pool (we didn't use). Cell service (Verizon) very spotty in the campground. RV sites generally are a level asphalt pad with drop-offs on each side, making it hard to set up a nice patio area. There was heavy rain when we were there and several sites had standing water around their picnic table. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

Not a lot of shopping or things to do in the area outside the park, so come prepared. Beautiful hiking inside the park. Do a canoe float trip on Bear Creek. Cross the swinging bridge and hike the Outcroppings Trail.

Tishomingo is a big state park with historic sites, group meeting areas, and picnic spots. The campground is centered around a small lake and nearly every site has a lake view. Very spacious sites in a wooded setting. Quiet and dark in the evenings. Located right on the Natchez Trace Parkway. We were surprised at the low camping fee and how big the park is. Their main feature is the Swinging Bridge at the very back of the park and it's worth the drive, but take your tow vehicle there because the interior roads are a bit winding and narrow and parking at the bridge is in a dirt lot. This is a great overnight spot if you're traveling the Natchez Trace. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the park as we traveled along the Natchez Trace. This park is adjacent to the parkway make by it very convenient. The campground is wooded and pretty with sites along a small lake. Most sites had a concrete pad but they were in rough shape, cracked & buckled on many sites. Also, a lot of sites were short, making it difficult for large class A's to fit. The first restroom needed cleaning - it wasnt filthy but needed some attention, and was dated. There was a new restroom about midway thru the campground but I didn't use it. The restroom at the back of the campground was closed, causing many campers to drive up to the front ones. We had rained while we were there so we didn't explore the park. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived in the pouring rain and selected our site quickly. We backed onto the elevated concrete pad easily. We camped here before and enjoyed it, so we returned. It had rained last time we were here, but this park is so beautiful we returned. It was nice and sunny this time. The trails in Tishomingo are sensational . We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Travel Trailer.

You have to be very careful on choosing your site. All are narrow. Some sites the concrete has buckled and some have a drop off just off the cement. The host was extremely nice and allowed us to change sites to one we liked. Luckily the park was not crowded this time of year. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Other reviews on this site state that this park needed updating. I agree, but they have not been done.

This park is awful. Please don't go with a big rig.

Dirty sites, washed out pads with steep drop offs.

Only good thing is that it is close to the Trace.

Closed restrooms, boarded up.

Never got my receipt. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is right on the Natchez Trace. Most of the sites are beside a small lake. The sites are well spaced and fairly level but many are very short. There were also steep drop-offs around most sites. Only TV reception was PBS from Florence, AL. No garbage cans at sites, just a dumpster as you leave. Lots of good hiking trails. No laundry facilities. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

Traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway we stopped for one night at this State Park. Lake was low, but the rest of the scenery was beautiful with tall pine trees for shade. The road around the campsite was a little windy but the sites were mostly level - all back ins. Around the lake were lots of bramble type vegetation with huge "sticker burrs" that attached themselves to our Collie and had to be cut out of her coat. FYI for pet owners - judging by the fur around our site, this had happened to other campers. Check out the Pioneer cabin in the park for a look back at history. A great spot - we will be back. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

Older State Park CG. We stayed here in a 40' motorhome on site 38. It was level and large enough. Our $13 rate was based upon senior discount. Lots of overhanging tree branches on main roads into campground area, so be ready to dodge them. Asphalt main roads and concrete campsite pads. Water pressure and electricity were fine. Verizon phone service was 1-2 bars, my MIFI worked well. I was able to get satellite service for DirecTV on our site. I would camp here again if in the area. Not a destination campground.

Very large campground with every site on the lake. Many of the sites had a steeply sloping dropoff to the site and it was a bit challenging to level our fifth wheel. The sites are private and the views are gorgeous. We only stayed the one night and it rained so we couldn't tour the park but it seemed like a great state park. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a stunningly beautiful park, but it is in need of some serious maintenance & upgrades. Interior road needs resurfacing and many sites have eroded pads so bad that there is barely enough width to park a unit on them widthwise. We had at least an 18" drop from bottom step to sloping ground. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped overnight enroute to Chewalla State Park. The drive on the "Trace" was awesome and finding this site was equally as nice. Only 4 or 5 others units (RV/Tents) so the place was super quiet. Front spots have terrific spacing between sites but as you move to the rear of the camp they get a bit tighter. Maintenance was being conducted on a lot of items (e.g. electrical boxes, bunk house, etc...) which is a good thing. Overall it was a nice place to camp and I'm sure to return for a day or two. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

We fell in love with this place. Absolutely beautiful. We only stayed 1 night, I wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in sIte 11 with a beautiful view of the lake. The parking pad was paved. There was a steep slope to get down to the picnic table and fire ring, but so worth it for the view. Some of the water front sites were not as steep as ours. The park itself is a must see for the swinging bridge, pioneer cabin to name a few. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the 4th time we have camped here. We love the park because it is very scenic with good hiking trails and great wildlife. As previously mentioned, the lake is down because of the hole in the dam. I rated the park a 6 because many of the sites need repair and in some cases very dangerous. While our site, 38, was good, many of the sites on the lake side have severe drop offs. I saw one motorhome where the step was at the edge of the pad and there was a 3 ft drop to the dirt. They would have had to step off the side of the step to get to the concrete and then a steep slope to get to the table/fire pit/grill. One of the restrooms at then end of the drive, where a majority of the campsites are, was closed. Also, when we arrived, none of the campsites had been mowed. The Mississippi Park Service needs to upgrade the camping sites and campground road. We were fortunate that our site was mostly pine needles. On the positive side, if you are a geocacher, there are a lot of caches in the park as well as the surrounding area. We had a ball caching. Even though I rated it a 6, we will stay here again. It is convenient to where we live, we don't stay in our campsite much, and there is lots to do. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Travel Trailer.
