8 Parks near Vicksburg, Mississippi
Oct 2016 - $35.00
Stayed in park on way to Ft Worth. All was well and made reservations to stay on return. Medical emergency with another camper caused us to stay in parking lot on generator during our return. Lady operating park was very helpful and attempted to correct problem. I have heard about this park having reservation problems in the past. - J&E

Stopped in here for the night. Ugh. Good luck finding a site anywhere near level. And the sites are too close together, too narrow and just sub-standard. The only bathrooms are in the office (closed 5pm to 9 am). We've stayed in other casino campgrounds and found them to be great - but not this one.
For some reason they put the sewer connection at the far back side of the site. It takes 30' of sewer hose to reach it.
We had to move 4 times during set up to try to find just one site that would level enough with hydraulic levelers so out slide would operate. The nearby big box store might be a better option than this place. - Creativepart

The park was were maintained but the sites were not level. Our 40' was just long enough but part of our tow was in the isle. We only used the electric as we were up and out of there early. We did go over to the casino. They have a shuttle that will pick you up at your site and deliver you back. We are at the Bourbon Restaurant, had prime rib. The meat was very done although I ordered it medium. Like they say, stay out of the casino. Would stay here if ever in the area but will stay out of the casino. - kathiecarlson

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 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

Very Nice Campground, Gravel roads and level gravel sites. No shade trees. this is a very nice campground. there is no AT&T cell service. that is beyond their control. Their hookups are at the rear of the sites, so be prepared to use 20 to 30 feet of sewer hose. - Danny285

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

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

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

Askews was a little slice of heaven after a long day on I-20. Owners were wonderful, so friendly and helpful. The whole property is woodland with two lakes full of fish and ducks.
Bathhouse was clean and warm.
Park was very quiet for a excellent night sleep.
A must stay. - Ann Blake

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.
