8 Parks near Vicksburg, Mississippi
Mar 2017 - $26.00
This is a nicely kept park. All utilities worked well. WIFI was ok as long as it wasn't during the evening hours. Easy satellite coverage. They charge an extra $5/night for 50 amp. We used 30 amp since we weren't going to need the a/c. Our site was fairly level although we did see some sites that were very unlevel. There is a train that goes by in a ravine type of ditch right next to the park. We never heard the whistle blow which was nice. We could feel the rumble of the tracks. There is some noise from the Interstate, but not bad. They do have a 13% hotel tax added onto the rate. - jacknpeg

Easy check in. All pull-throughs. Super clean restroom and shower. Reasonably priced laundry facility. Lots of security lighting. Wifi weak, but great cable tv. - Bucket List

We have stayed dozens of times over the last 2 decades and the cost is suddenly becoming an issue. There has been a change in casino management/ownership and the cost has gone up $5-10 in the past year. The park has cement, pull through, FHU sites with good, 60 channel cable TV. Unfortunately, most sites are seriously not level. Many are sloped from front to back and/or have a side-to-side slant. The Wi-Fi was a bit slow in the late afternoon, but constantly disconnected once it got dark. This was with only about 30 RVs in the park. The pool used to stay open this late in the year but the new management had it closed as of 10/31/16. This is another example of the cost cutters doing things that will simply antagonized long time customers. The laundry is still two of each machine and the price is reasonable at $1.50 per machine. The bathrooms are still inadequate (2 showers, 2 sinks, and just one stall) for this park. The office now closes at 5 P.M. The staffer I dealt with was terrific as usual. Typical for the region, there is no recycling. - Jerry S

The lots are gravel, some grass In between the lots & some shade is available. Big fenced in area for a dog run, also nice level ground to walk your pets around the campgrounds. I travel for work, it seems I'm always "taking a shot in the dark" when it comes to picking a park to set up for temp home. "Lady Luck" shined on me when I found this park back in 2008. Every time I come to Vicksburg, I know I have a great place to stay. This is my 3rd time here, and when I have to come back, this is where I'll end up. - sparksarehers

Awkward zig-zag entry - as soon as you go thru the entry you have to make an immediate left, so if there are any vehicles at the office, you'll just have to block them in. One-way paved road with gravel sites. OK utilites, weak wifi. Lots of sketchy permanents and unused rigs. When the park flyer reminds all that we're law-abiding citizens and no illegal activities are allowed.....Hmmmm. We'd stay elsewhere next time. - The Hilts

This is no resort. However it is a an okay RV park.
Park owner?/manager was very accommodating and made himself very accessible. To get my Escapees discount the payment for my one night stay was cash only.
All sites are packed gravel with a thin strip of grass between you and your neighbor. Your "patio' is your neighbors utility connections. Power was solid with no voltage dips despite the campground being packed full and temperatures above 90 degrees with A/Cs running full blast. Water pressure okay and sewer connection was in good shape. Wifi was good until late evening when everybody was online, their system just couldn't handle all the traffic and connections were dropped and not able to be reaquired. Verizon signal was good for jetpack and voice calls.
My site was a very convenient pull through, fairly level with no tree obstructions for satellite. However it was not big enough to hold both my 5th wheel and truck when disconnected. I asked, and got permission, to park my truck perpendicular across the driveway in order not to hang out into the very narrow road in front of me.
If a campground in the Vicksburg area was my destination I would probably pick one of the nearby state parks or COE facilities for a multi-night stay or camping experience. But if passing through as I am, this RV park works. - jperry29

This is a very nice quiet campground. Long pull sites with grass between each site. Hooks in back of sites had to take car off. Friendly Managers. We would stay here again. - kathy n tom

I loved this park with the spacious sites and the well maintained roads. The managers keep the park neat and the occupants all have very neat here again as long as they stay that way. The only drawback that I experienced was the poor wifi service. The owners said the provider was coming by the next day to fix it. I do hope it improves . I disagree sites without clutter. I appreciate the reasonable rates and will visit with another reviewer that wanted concrete pads and was willing to pay much more for it. Please keep it as is and at same rate. The slight slope on the site was easily remedied by driving the front wheels up on 2x8s, (2 minute fix]. We did not use restrooms so can not comment on them. We were here in a 40" motor home for 1 night. - JAWS

Very spacious, grassy lots with picnic tables. The picnic tables are old and mildewed-they could use a heavy coat of paint. The sites are gravel, but are surrounded by grass, which our dogs loved. We really liked the wide space between the sites. We were NOT packed in tight like sardines, as so many other parks do. There is no cable, so we were only able to watch 5 or 6 local channels. There was a small airport nearby, so when we had the windows open it was very loud. It actually sounded like they might be practicing for an air show or something. We LOVE the way their camp brochures state AMERICAN OWNED/AMERICAN OPERATED. - Bonnie A

Let's start by saying NO NEVER STAY HERE. Now let me tell you why. I travel in an Aliner pop up and weigh most of my ratings on the bath/shower facilities however in this case I have to say this was one of the worse camping experiences ever. Specifics. The cable TV wires had all been cut out I assume due to copper theft. The sites have a ditch you have to cross to pull into the site where my unit drugged the ground. While having my coffee in the morning a campers dog decided to come over and bark continuously at me. The dog owner simply yelled and cursed the dog. Now the the bad part. The shower/bath facility had not been cleaned in a very long time. There were huge ants and other bugs all inside the shower. When I turned the hot water on to wash the ants and bugs out, the entire faucet came out of the wall allowing hot water to flood the facility. The commodes were loose from the floor. This place has NO maintenance. The owners apologized but did not offer to refund my $21 for my experience. DO NOT GO HERE!! Very BAD! - aliner man

Very unpleasant experience. We didnt stay long, and moved to the Ameristar. I wouldnt go back. It would be a one but it is in a great location. - cottonwood

Park does not seem to be well maintained. The first electrical outlet we tried was rusty and did not work. Site are level, even though some of them are on a slope. The park is very convenient to the battleground and only a few kilometres from downtown Vicksburg - Gandalf

Rough paved road leading to campground and hard pack sand/gravel in CG. Large pull thru site but overnighters located in a low area that was grass, probably would be bad in rainy weather. Cash or check only and no discount. Overnight stay ok but wouldn't choose this CG unless interested in the lake or fishing. - jeeper13
Dec 2016 - $26.00
More of a "fish" camp and full of campers, than an RV park. A long 2 1/2 drive on a very narrow road culminating in a single lane gravel road around a beautiful lake to the office. Sites are in a field or among the trees and are on grass. I would not stay again. - Gunny69

Our site had plenty of room to park our jeep. It was Halloween weekend and we had a great time! There were hayrides, RV trick or treating, costume contests, an RV decorating contest and night time karaoke. A huge bonfire was set up but unfortunately could not be lit because of a statewide burn ban. This is definitely a family friendly campground. Our four children played and rode their bikes for hours...making new friends everywhere they went. A concrete basketball pad sits near a very large field that was perfect for an all ages football game. There is an enclosed area with farm animals to pet. There are dozens of geese and ducks to feed. The pool was covered for the winter season. It was quiet and everyone was very friendly. The store was very well-stocked and was decorated fabulously for Halloween. Our site was level and the ground very hard packed. We will definitely come back to Askew's Landing Campground!! - 6 Ole Miss Rebels
Natchez Trace Parkway Milepost 54.8 Rocky Springs, Mississippi 38804 (map) | (800) 305-7417

May 2015 - $1.00
Rocky Springs is a smaller NPS park directly on the Natchez Trace Parkway. We camped in the unused Host Site, but there were about 5 or 6 sites that could have accommodated our 39' RV. Many other sites for smaller campers or motor homes. The initial entry sites are the most level. If you see one you like in the first 10 or so, grab it. The rest are up on the hill, not as level. There was lots of room to maneuver our RV through the campground. The restrooms were clean, as were the sites, even though no host was present. No AT&T or Verizon coverage. Most sites are wooded and only a few had a satellite view. Best of all, its free. What's not to like! We would definitely stay here again. - CharlieS

This is a nice FREE National Park campground right along the Natchez Trace Parkway. No hookups, no water fill or dump station available so arrive prepared. Sites were mostly wooded and paved although many were in need of repair. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Great place to spend a night or 2 along the Trace. Very few sites were occupied when we visited in early May. No Verizon cellular voice or data service. - AirstreamSJ

Sites not numbered. Free – This campground is in the recreational area of the Rocky Springs Site. No electricity or water but water at the bathrooms. This campground needs some work. Sites need to be leveled and repaved. We had driven down here on the Trace to avoid some violent storms that were going through Jackson for two days and it was a good stop. There were four other campers in the park for the first night and only us for the second. Another camper had told us three weeks earlier the snowbirds heading home on the Trace squeezed 43 RV’s in 19 sites. The Rocky Springs Site and trail in the park is fascinating with the old church, dried out springs and markers for the whole town in the woods. This park is also near Port Gibson which was not burned by Grant because it was too beautiful on his march through MS. The Windsor ruins are worth the drive to go see. If we traveled the Trace again we would stay here for a one night stay. It was very peaceful! Just a note about three hours after we left this campground a tornado was seen heading for it right up the Trace. - gsnakehill

A Passport America campground. We were drawn by the price and being on our way. Rather far off the highway and actually pretty primative. An ideal campground for those with horses wishing to ride the Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail. They have a barn and outdoor stalls for horses as well as a pasture area. - Paullynn

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. - mrpeepers

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. - Norton Wine Traveler

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. - Tim B.
