6 Parks near Tylertown, Mississippi
Mar 2013 - $10.00
Calling this park a “resort” is a joke. This has been our worst park so far. According to the locals the park has flooded at least three times since Hurricane Issac, and it shows. The roads into the park are rough and filled with pot holes. In some areas the “shoulder” no longer exists. They closed the only women's restroom / showers for repairs without warning or notice to campers. Laundry facilities consist of one thoroughly filthy washer and dryer. Management leaves a lot to be desired. The maintenance man spends the day driving around in a tractor getting nothing done. Office personnel is willing to take your money; don't ask for much more. Repairs to the restroom were being done by a couple of “perms” on their own schedule. Prepare to clean your shower, IF you use the park's bathhouse. No Internet, no antenna television, cell phone worked fair. Many of the full hookup sites are no longer accessible due to the river washing away the bank. The few that remain, you have to use a hand held shovel to locate the sewer inlet, which drains slowly. Make sure you are using a surge protector on electric, as we discovered the hard way some of the plugs are wired incorrectly. Water pressure is 80 psi, which may also be a concern. The swimming pools are full of river water, debris, and wildlife; neither are usable. The few “perms” are friendly enough, and blame the state of affairs around the park on the owners in California. Their rigs and “storage” tents pretty much represent the park: “rough”. Rate shown is RPI. This park is a drive, 20 miles or more, from anything. We would have to consider all of the above before staying again. - Full-Timer RV'er

This was a nice place but I dropped the rank because the showers on the end we stayed at had broken panels out of the door. The river was very nice. Just bring bug spray. The skeeters were huge. - Jesse Rodgers

We hesitated to stop here when the latest review was several years old, but we thought we'd take a chance when we needed an overnight stop. The rate we paid was with the senior pass so I hesitate to complain. $14 for water and electric is not bad. It is clear this campground has gone downhill since the 2007 reviews though. The sites are dirt and all run together. There are not many that can accommodate our 40' size. There were overflowing garbage cans at each site. I will say that the young man working was very pleasant and helpful and seemed distressed that he couldn't get all the garbage picked up while attending to his other duties as well. He was all alone. If we were smaller, I think we'd probably use this park again in transit. Due to our size, I doubt we will. - Gypsy Turtles

A real melting pot of a campground. Everything from tent campers to 40' fivers. From shirtless, tattooed guys to well dressed couples walking their dogs. If you do not mesh well with all types, this may not be your place. Lots and lots of beer drinking. If you want to let it all hang out and have a great time tubing this is your place. If you want a nice serene, quiet weekend with the kids as we do, try Percy Quinn State Park right down the road. Some turns in the C.G. are a little tight. We caught a rainy weekend. The gravel roads held up nice and standing water did not seem to be a problem. We did have a good time but we seem to get along with all types. - Cajun_A-Bear

We had a blast. This was our first trip with the 4-wheeler. The trails were great. The bands were very good and played Friday and Saturday nights. After the bands were finished, everyone honored quiet time. We did not hear another 4-wheeler until 8 am. It was a very family oriented environment. A lot for kids to participate in for the "redneck o-limp-hicks." The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend and return. - Rhonda C.

Went here for the weekend to ride my ATV. It is a great place to camp and ride your ATV. The trails are a nice feature and you really get to ride your ATV while camping in a quiet place. There were not many people here when we camped. There are a few permanent residents in the park; however, there is tons of room. The owners are very nice and its a great place for star gazing or just relaxing. I would not go here if not for the trails for ATV riding. Its far off the beaten path, but nice. - pizota1313

This is a fun campground with very friendly owners. The 4-wheeler trails are great and the mud pit is great fun. We have always had a good time at this campground. - crweigel

The owner was very friendly and accommodating. There is no cable TV and very few spots where a satellite would get a signal. She placed us in a spot where we could get a signal and also near the building where the Wi-Fi router was located. The Wi-Fi signal was weak and kept dropping off. This is truly a campground, not an RV park. There were a few pull-throughs, which are short, and you would still have to unhook. Roads are very narrow, with small branches hanging down. I said all of this as information, not complaining. It is a nice little campground for a family outing. - phaeton31808

We stayed here Thursday through Sunday. The staff was very friendly and accommodating as they changed our reservation as requested to arrive a day early and also due to weather (rain), they moved us to a dryer site. As stated, the weather was very bad and we had to stay inside most of the time. This park does hold water and could use some gravel to freshen things up and help keep water from pooling at the campsites. This did not detract from the overall quality of this campground. We will return and look forward to spending some time here during better weather. - RNLCOOKIE

This campground was just plain fun. The sites are gravel and tend to get swampy in the rain. There are trees everywhere and the river front sites are definitely river front sites. We had lovely views from our coach. The sites are wide. There is a fishing pond, a great pool, clubhouse, bathhouse and one can access the river by going down the staircase in the rear of the grounds. There are some woody trails to explore with the kids and the staff is friendly. Many folks have their golf carts with them, pets are welcome and kids are having fun all over. Some folks are there full time, but not on the river front. It is a bit rustic and natural. We did not have DirectTV yet, and I noticed most people have stand alone satellite dishes. Be careful to turn left when exiting the CG; otherwise you will end up in a brick yard! I really liked this spot and only give it a 7 because of its rustic atmosphere which may not be to the likeing of some RVr's, and because it gets so messy when wet. If I recall correctly, there is 30 amp at each site. I will go back often because it is so laid back and natural. We were able to park a 42' MH on the river, although not many of those sites will allow it. - Iris

Coming in on a Saturday night we didn't have reservations because Mississippi requires you to book Friday and Saturday night. Worked out well as we got a senior discount and no reservation fee! Park is very pretty and the lake is beautiful. Bathrooms are air conditioned which seems to be rare in state parks. Showers were decent and had hot water. One of the toilets was left running all night and I never saw a camp host. My site was a little hard to back into as the roads were narrow. - Ocotillo

We've stayed here several times in years past. It's been a while since we were here last but we love this park. The park is nestled in the woods and the lake is beautiful. There currently is no fishing in the lake because it was just restocked after being drawn down for repairs on the dam. However, boating is still allowed. Fishing is supposed to resume in 2017. There is also a golf course on the property.
The staff is very friendly and there is a "camp store" in the campground that has the essentials for camping. I suggest taking a walk on the South end of the lake around the dam area. Very nice scenery. There are also cabins and group cabins for rent. There is a great seafood restaurant about 10 minutes North of the campground entrance called Mr. Whiskers. Very good food, friendly staff and good prices. Check it out.
We had 3 campers in our group and enjoyed the weekend. We cooked out, sat out by a roaring campfire, walked the property, and had a great time. - mike9767

This was our first time here. The park is very clean. We stayed in the Upland section. Very spacious sites, gravel pads but they were level. Great walking trails, a little tough to ride bicycles due to the hilly terrain. We would definitely stay here again. - KDplus2

This is a nice clean park. The state park is 1700 acres and has 2 campgrounds, a water park, canoes, rafts, horses and 6 miles of walking trails. All areas are kept clean. The price is a Winter rate with a discount. If a person is from Arkansas or Delaware and have the America the beautiful card there is a 50% discount. All personnel of the park are very friendly. Great value. - goldwing2

There are two different camping sites in this park. The first is the Upperland where we have stayed both times. The sites have full hook-ups (water, electric, sewage) as well as a picnic bench, fire grill and fire pit. From the Upperland you can get on some well marked trails that go around the park. Some of these trails can be used by horses. Coming into the park there was a sign that said you can rent horses. We didn't do this but it may be of interest to some.
Also, the Upperland is in walking distance to the meeting room, group camp, and a nicely kept frisbee golf course.
The main difference in the Lowerland is that the sites are older and only have water and electric (no sewage). However most of the sites are on with a lake or slow moving bayous which are quite picturesque. But bring your bug spray. Stagnant water breeds mosquitoes.
Lowerland is more scenic, Upperland more modern.
There are rolling hills and you really don't feel like you're in Louisiana when you're there. Staff is super nice. Excellent selection of games to borrow at the front desk.
We definitely will go again. - GearDown
