Stayed here for two nights in our 21' Travel Trailer. We arrived after 7pm and there wasn't really much signage on what to do at the guard shack as you pull into the park. Drove down the road looking for signs until we found the campground. We had reserved online so we just looked for our site, it was reserved for us with a cone in the way. Site was large and very easy for us to back into. The turns around the loop are a little tight especially because someone on the site where the loop is tightest had several cars parked along the side making the fit tighter than it needed to be.

This is one of the few campgrounds I have ever been to where the site numbers are not on some sort of post near the front of the site. They are painted on the road in yellow numbers at the head of each site, so look there.

We checked in the with the office in the morning and they were friendly and helpful. Gave us a pass for the car and told us where the dumpster was. Bathrooms were clean and there is a coin laundry ($1.50 for wash $1.00 for dry). We stayed here because of its proximity to the Natchez Trace Parkway and several National Battlefields. We enjoyed our stay and would love to check out the lake here at the State park if we find ourselves back this way. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful wooded park just minutes from Tupelo, surrounds a good sized lake with fishing piers and boat launches. Guest cabins are available, two disc golf courses that meander through the woods, large playground for kids as well as a softball field. Park is quiet and well maintained, especially for the budget cuts they're dealing with. Free showers, and laundry machines are available. Our Verizon service was spotty, alternating between 1 bar of LTE to 3 bars of 3G. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Motorhome.

The sites are rather hard to pull into because of the narrow circular road. There are full hook ups available. The showers and toilets were clean. There is laundry facilities. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Internal roads are paved and curvy (not hard to drive through), sites are elevated and paved with grass/dirt for the rest of the site, level and fairly easy to back into, facilities worked well, and are located mid site, site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly, T-Mobile cell service was poor, Verizon 4G LTE was 1 bar at the site but better away from the site. The park was quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved the site, lots of room, but leveling needed. We were able to get many Tupelo TV channels. We followed the GPS to the park and came in the "back way." Very pretty lake and nice walking trails. close to the Natchez-Trace. Big sign posted "No Alcohol." We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here on both ends of our trip on the Natchez Trace Parkway. All sites are full hookup. Some were too short for our 25' trailer plus pickup, but several were long enough. All were a good width, site 3 is extra-wide. Sites are close to level but not perfect. We called park personnel for a reservation and they took CC info over the phone, no need to go to the office. All sites have full hook-ups, and are a great bargain at this price!

Water pressure and electric voltage were good. Verizon service was 1 or 2 bars only, switching back and forth between 3G & 4G.

Sites are a decent size & distance apart. We never saw a camp host, although there is a site for one. There is a nice playground for children. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet and clean State Park. The 50 amp kept blowing our surge protector so we had to use 30 amp. Nice location if you want to explore Tupelo. Lot spacing was nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel, featuring a fire-ring, picnic table and patio. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small state park with only 20 campsites. The sites are fairly level and partially wooded. Some sites have 50 amp service and some have 30 amp. There are a few sites that don't have sewer so you have check each site carefully to get the utilities you want. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park in very pretty setting. Bath house neat and tidy. Personel were helpful and friendly. It is a couple miles down narrow, winding road. The rv pads were asphalt and basically level. Trouble is they are laid out strangely. Table positioned to be useless, pad barely wide enough for coach not providing sitting room. Data service via Verizon very slow. Ten channels or so via antennae. Could be very nice with some changes. Too far removed to be good for single night stay. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a decent campground in a rustic state park, but it does have some issues. First, the positives. Restrooms are modern and spotless. The park lake is very nice, and I also noticed decent tennis courts which appeared to be ok. Now the issues, which are minor, but should be mentioned. The park is understaffed and apparently not well budgeted. On arrival (the local road to the park is narrow and winding) there is an entry booth which is unmanned and the roadway past it is very narrow. Notice the damage to the corner of the roof where passing rigs have apparently hit it. There are virtually no signs directing you to the campground, so continue on the park road. You will eventually see the campground entrance and a sign indicating a campground host. We were there 3 days and ever found the host. Sites (which must be reserved in advance) are numbered, but numbers are painted on the roadway, and with autumn leaves covering the road, we went around the loop twice before we spotted them. Sites are paved, reasonable wide and somewhat level. There was no signage indicating where to check in, so we didn't. Hookups were okay, but sewer was about 10 feet from the back of the site so we needed a couple of hose extensions to hook up. Park has 30 and 50 amp service, and we hooked to 50amp. During the first two nights power went off for minutes at a time several times. When it happened again the next morning I asked a neighbor if he had power problems also and he said he did when he arrived but switched to 30amps and it was fine. We went to plug in the 30amp adaptor and found the 30a receptacle was installed upside down. Using a lot of duct tape, I managed to get the plug to stay in the receptacle. No problems with 30 amp. We eventually found the park office where we registered. Having said all that, we would stay here again. The park is nice and quiet, and reasonable close to the center of Tupelo. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is not far from the Natchez Trace. It is a very small park with 20 sites, all but one have sewer. Most of the sites are within the inner circle and very close together. We had a lovely site number 7 that was isolated. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, spacious park with asphalt pads. Did not offer Wifi, but we did get good satellite (space #13) and our cell phone reception was good, which enabled us to use our hotspot when we needed the internet. We had 50 AMP, water and sewer. There was a lake and several fishing piers, and offered clean roads to ride bicycles. We would stay here again if we are ever in the area again and recommend this park highly!

We were planning on staying in one of the parks on the Natchez Trace but ran out of time and picked this at last minute and are we glad. Price reflects a senior discount. Had a beautiful spot that backed up to a beautiful stand of trees. Everything about this park we loved with the exception of lack of cell service. Would definitely recommend. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is in a beautiful area and they strive to keep the park maintained with the limited employees they have, but all of the employees are really nice. It is a narrow drive to it but it is also very convenient to Tupelo. The showers were clean. Their washer was gone but was to get a new one the 1st of July. The sites are big and fairly level. The lake is very beautiful and is very family friendly also to our furry family. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Motorhome.
