Nice campground right off the Trace Parkway. Very convenient to shopping and sites to see. Road is paved and sites are gravel and level. Owners also have a small camping retail center in Tupelo. They are very helpful and very friendly. We would stay here again. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Motorhome.

The price we paid reflects a weekly rate. The park is well laid out. Wide paved roads. Although the park is hilly the sites are level and wide. The utilities are good and the WiFi is the best I have seen for an RV park yet. The workers are friendly and very helpful. There are long pull through sites. I highly recommend this park. I would return here anytime. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Fifth Wheel.

Ok - we just got here today and already it's a 10. Don't worry about the roads, they've all been re-paved. The sites are all pretty level and nicely separated with flowers as well as grade separation. The cable is great and the wifi is superb! The location is quiet and peaceful and the staff are wonderful. Lots of trees, a real country feel but you are around the corner from a huge mall and a Cracker Barrel and fuel and of course close to the King's birthplace. Thankuvermuch. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Motorhome.

Long pull thru level gravel sites. Restrooms and showers were very clean. As mentioned in the other reviews, the roads are steep but are asphalt. These are a bit slippery when wet, we left immediately following a rain and were glad we had a 4WD truck to get up the hill. No credit cards but checks are OK. Nice park to stay in and see the area.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. They offered a Good Sam discount. The park is a short distance from the Natchez Trace Parkway. It is off of Highway 145 (N. Gloster St). Transitioning off the highway requires a sharp 90 degree turn. The access road is paved. The park is very close to town even though it is in a wooded rural setting. The park was built on the side of a hill so the parking pads were cut out of the slope forming steps up the hill but they are level. However, the roads run up and down the hill and are rather steep. The interior roads are gravel. The roads were sufficient to get around the park. Surprising you don’t need to disconnect your toad to get around the park. The site parking pads are gravel. The pull through sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (with 50 AMP), & sewer. The connections are about midway along the side of the sites. The sites are not uniform in design, shape or location. Didn’t seem to be any long term residents but there appeared to be some RV storage. The park is surrounded and encumbered with trees obstructing access to the sky for satellite reception but there were a few sites designated as satellite friendly. They did have an extensive cable station lineup. The trees didn’t seem to cause a problem for slides. Park provided WIFI worked well. Net10 cell phone reception was good. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. This was strange considering when approaching Tupelo there was tornado damage and the area experienced a tornado about 2 weeks after we left the area. They don’t accept credit cards so only cash or checks. Yes, they accepted our out of state check. There were two small designated pet areas but neither of them where fenced. There were bag dispensers and garbage cans to dispose of waste. There is a “nature trail” beginning/ending at one of the pet areas in the park. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Motorhome.

We had no discounts and I thought the price was a little high, but maybe the location being so close to everything allows them to charge that. Location was very handy, not too far to car museum and very close to the Natchez Trace info center and parkway. We thought the car museum and Natchez Trace are worth spending some time. The reviews I read on here made the campground seem a little better than what I thought of it. It was okay, had some really good points, but our site was very uneven and we really couldn't get our fifth wheel level. The dog areas had a lot of the round prickly balls from some tree and I saw an ant hill so didn't stick around long enough to see what kind of ants they were. Nice idea, but I felt better with our dog on the blacktop road. Campground has hilly roads, but they are black topped. We had a nice view of a birdbath and some bird feeders out our window, and across the lane were 3 horses. We did enjoy that. We would stay here again if in the area.

Rate is Good Sam discount. Stayed here at least three times. Very nice staff and easy pull-through sites for nightly guests. No dog-walk. Great for overnight. Close to shopping and restaurants. They had awesome Christmas decor around the park! Our cable did not work this time: think it was a problem with our site only. Caution with a trailer to get a site that does not slope up at the front, making it difficult to level and to unhook and re-hook. Super accommodating! Would definitely stay again. Good WiFi. A dog park would make it a 10! We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Travel Trailer.

A very pleasant campground. Wide, accessible site for our "big rig", helpful staff and close to stores and Natchez Trace info centre.Narrow entrance with a steep ditch off busy 145 can be a surprise and a challenge for a bigrig with a tow if travelling from the south.Turning north out of the campground on departure can also be problematic since you have to occupy both lanes to make the turn and keep out of the ditch and speeding south bound traffic doesn't want to stop for anything. Better to enter from north and leave to the south. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Motorhome.

This is a clean park easy to get to. The sites are just fine and well designed. The laundry and the showers and bathrooms are clean but absolutely ancient. Someone said they were the absolute best they had ever seen. Hmm... not sure where they have been RVing. Found the price high for the quality of park. Have stayed in much higher end parks for less money but it is easy to get to from the Natchez Trace and the front desk person was very friendly. Would stay here again if I had to, but it would not be my first choice. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with large gravel sites. They take cash only or check, but that was not a problem. The staff was very helpful. We stayed in two motorhomes on our way up and back, two separate stays and were very happy both times. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Motorhome.

Rate paid is Good Sam ($32) + 2 13 yr olds= $38 This campground breaks my scale. I rate it 10. Normally, I start with 10 and deduct for things the campground could control, like leaky water connections. This time I put it at 10, period. This is an Interstate (1/4 mile away) in route stop that becomes a destination. If you think in route campgrounds that are Big Rig friendly have to be sparce trees, think again. If you think Big Rig friendly has to be flat land, think again. If you think you've see the best bathrooms campgrounds offer, come here. We're a 17' hybrid (pop out) trailer with tents that do not hear the interstate because of the "hoot" owls. We are level, connected with no leaks, pull through. The Big Rigs have it as great. We've camped over 200 nights in 37 states since 2010 and these are the best bathrooms, period. Plenty of level, plenty of shade. Big Rigs do not required cutting trees. Come here to see how it is done. And this is not new, 1984 start, they know what they are doing. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Tent Trailer.

This is a charming campground. We stayed here overnight, but NEXT TIME we will book longer. The sites are fairly close, but terraced with LOTS of trees and landscaping...so each site is actually pretty private. Picnic tables, great cable and Wi-Fi. We asked for a site for satellite line-of-sight, but with all the trees we didn't get a signal. No problem because the Comcast cable hookup is great with plenty of programming. Nice dog runs; one has a wooden footbridge over a little babbling stream and park benches to sit and enjoy. Trash receptacles at every site. We did not use the shower nor laundry. We will definitely be back here. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park twice. It is a very pretty park. It is pet friendly and there are 2 pet walking areas. There are lots of bushes and flowers and grass planted around the park with signs asking you to keep your pets off. It is a quiet park and the hosts are friendly. Cash or check only.

We stayed here for one night while following the Natchez Trace. It was easy to find, close to the Trace exits and conveniently located to local shopping. Built on the side of a hill, most of the sites are pull-thru gravel pads, reasonably level and decently spaced. Park roads are all paved. Facility connections were easily accessible and placed mid-rig. Cable TV and Wi-Fi both worked well. The grounds were clean and the funky little office has an abundance of brochures about Tupelo, which has a rich history and is the birthplace of Elvis. We will come back to spend time exploring Tupelo more fully someday and we would stay here again. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Fifth Wheel.
