Easy in and out to get to Vicksburg. Easy to get on and off IH-20. - MobileScout38BWQS

The sites are gravel and wifi is unreliable. They use minimal gravel and when it rains, there are mud puddles everywhere. The staff is friendly.
The location is very convenient to I-20. The hotel and casino next door are very nice and there is a shuttle that runs between all the properties that is very prompt. The casino is nice, has good food and is not run down like many non-Vegas options. It is located right on the Mississippi and offers some pretty views.
If you are looking for a place to stop have access to entertainment and dining options without driving, and don't mind the average condition of the RV park, this is a good choice. - PBW

We were passing through for the night lot people come here for the casinos. Level sites, well manicured grounds, concrete pads. The worse part was getting registered through Ameristar. I was disconnected 2-3 times and was put on hold. Later another person answered my call. Too much hassle. - Bga

I only seem to review parks when I really like them or don't. You will not have to guess which one this is. Firstly, this is not big rig friendly. Your experience begins on the approach, a narrow twisting road on a levee for about 2.5 miles, when you arrive and must descend a single lane, very steep drop off the levee to the park. What goes down must come up. The park is very poorly maintained: dusty roads, bumpy grass (sort of grass) sites, and very poor electric. I never looked in the showers etc, but the building looked very tired. Mostly permanents (maybe seasonal), but very few transients. My 50 amp connection was not working (causing my surge protector to hum) and not delivering power to the coach. The one small bright spot was when a maintenance man came over to check out the humming, and informed me that this site had poor power and I should move to another. He did assist me and we found another site and we were able to stay the night, but left the next day. The ride up the hill to the levee was equally challenging and I was very pleased to be on my way. Would not ever return (even for free). - Woody1

First time to this park, and the last. Stayed here with Coast to Coast discount. Was charged $7.00 nightly for full hookup but only had 30 amp available, and we had to use adjoining electric because our electric was not working. Reported it to management but nothing ever happened to fix problem. Campsite was in a grassy area but probably had not been mowed in several months, grass all around was very tall which made it a mosquito haven. Staff were friendly but resort needs to fix gravel roads and general lawn maintenance. Stayed just down the road at another campground which was much more appealing and no fees. - Dedra C

Campground nicely shaded by a canopy of trees along gravel driveways.
The biggest drawback to this park is the well deserved reputation for having long-term members in row E who disrespect the people passing through. The long-term members tend to annoy, harass, and disrespect the other campers.
Management has little control over these long-term dwellers who have a sense of entitlement.
Would we camp there again? Only of there were sites available away from row E. - Wanders

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 small park with many permanent residents. Some of the units are older with clutter around them. The office manager was very nice and checked out our site before we pulled in. It was convenient to the Vicksburg Military site. Easy in and out of the park. - kaydbug

I arrived after official office hours but they stayed open until I arrived. Although spots are very close together, everything is well-maintained. The dogs loved the dog run. - Scldg

Sites looked level but were not, the hookups are way too far back for a motorhome. Other than that it is a nice place. - Dennis_K

We were planning a week here however decided to get back on the road after five nights [the rate was weekly]. There's a nice small pool, playground, laundry, bathrooms and showers, so a lot of amenities. The sites have the hookups at the backend of the site and to get level we had to unhook first then maneuver to the back of the site. The park has young trees throughout so sporadic shade. Mowing was being done in spurts and our site had some pretty tall sprouts. The office people were super nice. - Tony Connie and Rusty

Lots of space between sites. No shade. Summer would be brutal. - Mike Perrault

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

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

Nice quiet smaller place. Full service, nice little lake, nice proprietor. A significant number of full-timers. Shady spots. - VATom
Mar 2016 - $26.00
Arrived during the heavy rains/ flooding and was a bit concerned about parking in a grass field. We stopped the tandems on what appeared to be rocks and we had no trouble leaving the next morning. We did leave ruts in the grass. The beautiful lake was filled to capacity and was dumping over the access road... they do mark the road edges with small flagging so it was easy to see. For an overnight stay, you will most likely be in an open area. - cherib

The place looks nice till you start looking closer at it. There was 1 bathroom for 50 people in our area . With 1 toilet and 1 shower that was working in it. There was years of mold on the shower curtains . The flys at this place were massive. The maintenance were notified for 2 days about a problem with the bathrooms at the pool. They never addressed them till they made an announcement that the kids had broken the bathroom. How is it that the kids are to blame for something that was brought to their attention before the kids showed up. The fishing in the lake is a joke. It is off balanced and most bass are 7 inches long . Yes you have a few that are 5 pounds, but they need to redo the lake. It has more stumps in the middle of the lake and I got my boat stuck 3 times in the very center . The pool smelt terrible even on day one. There were condoms floating in it. Their staff made it a point to say he was the personal body guard of someone there with his gun on his hip . It is very unprofessional to do that when there were already tension with that family member. I would not recommend this camp ground to anyone . You have a nicer camping experience at Roosevelt or even jelly stone camping . - Jesse Rodgers

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

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.

This one of the best kept secrets in the Port Gibson area. The campground and military park is a few miles from town but is well worth the trip. The park is quiet and clean, the staff are excellent. Sites are all concrete pads with full hook ups. WiFi can be obtained by going to the main office. We really enjoyed our stay here as we explored the area. We highly recommend it if you are in the area. - JD1040
