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. We camped at River Town Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites looked level but were not, the hookups are way too far back for a motorhome. Other than that it is a nice place. We camped at River Town Campground in a Motorhome.

I really liked this park. Great value. Has very good water pressure and good 50 amp power. Roads are gravel. Nice long gravel sites that are very roomy. Lots of grass. Nice and quiet at night. My one criticism would be the lack of shade.

I note that some say the sites are on a slope and need lots of leveling. I disagree completely. The rear couple of pull-through rows have a slight incline. The middle pull-through rows look to be completely flat. The hookups are more near the rear then the front - I did not need extensions. The picnic table is not new, but it works fine.

I absolutely will stay here whenever I'm in the neighborhood.

Located about 5-7 miles south of I-20 on US Highway 61. Takes only 10-15 minutes to get to the Vicksburg Battlefield. We camped at River Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The office has an audio CD to use while doing the driving tour of the Vicksburg Battlefield. It's a very good Military Park. The restored USS Cairo and it's museum are great. Free with park admission.

Walmart (and Murphy fuel) is about 3-4 miles north on Hwy 61. Kroger is also nearby.

I was concerned that this park, which I reserved ahead of time, would be too far from Vicksburg, but it's not. Easy, quick drive to all the places you want to see. The park is large and open with level sites. Only the sites around the perimeter have shade. Restroom is old but clean and adequate. Laundry is fine. Wifi connection is good. We camped at River Town Campground in a Truck Camper.

Don't miss the "Tomato Place," which is on the highway between the campground and downtown Vicksburg. It looks like a produce stand, and is, but has a great little restaurant in back.

Basic but adequate. Sites are long and wide but ours was not level - needed blocks under the front wheels. Hookups way at the back. No shade on most sites. It was relatively quiet despite being on highway 61. All in all, not a bad place to stay for a few days. We camped at River Town Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived after many days of rain had saturated the Southeast. When we got to our assigned space, the power pedestal was standing in water. A call to the office and we were advised to by the staff to find a nearby site that was not in use, call for verification that it was not reserved and move to that site. We found that the campground staff was most responsive to campers' needs and was very helpful. It is an older campground and needs some work but the staff is working on it and there were obvious signs of that. The campground is well-maintained. There are several long term campers. We would return. We camped at River Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is easy access to Vicksburg. Sites are roomy both in length and width. Fairly level graveled sites with grass surround. Hookups are rear of site. Trash pickup at your site every day by 9:30am. Laundry available and is clean and secure next to office. Office staff are super friendly. You can receive mail and packages. I had my mail forwarded to me here and had Amazon deliver some packages. No trees at my site. Park is surrounded and bordered by trees however, making it a quiet setting. No cable. OTA TV is available. On-site free WiFi, but bandwidth is an issue when lots of users. I have streamed Hulu without buffering during the evening. Good for social networks and email. Pull thru sites available. I have a 40' Class A towing an 18' trailer and I was able to camp with trailer still attached and still have room to park my car in front of my camp site. I would stay here again. We camped at River Town Campground in a Motorhome.

The people (possibly the owners) working the office and camp grounds are super friendly. That alone would make it a place to camp. Super easy access from US 61 and easy access to Vicksburg sites, shopping and movies!! I would certainly stay here again.

Easy entrance and exit. Older park that is an open field. No need to climb on the roof to sweep leaves and twigs off the tops of the slides. I like that! FHU sites with 50A power and VERY good water pressure. Services connections are at the rear of the sites. Wi-fi worked, but doesn't have a lot of bandwidth. Fine for email and Facebook, but you won't watch movies on it. Gravel roads and a gravel/grass mixture parking pad that is level. Site were nice and wide so you're not right on top of your neighbor. Host and hostess were very nice. We camped at River Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Touring the military park was interesting. Washington Street was a bit run down. The murals on Levee St were nice to view.

This was a decent no frills overnight stop a few miles south of I-20. There were a large number of available sites and we were happy to be placed in a pull through along the rear-most road away from the Hwy 61. The electric was at the rear of the site. For the first time in years, I had to use my 50 amp extension to reach the pedestal. We camped at River Town Campground in a Motorhome.

Good for over night. Park south of Vicksburg on 61 about 5 miles from I-20. Large park but not too busy. Some permanents but sites are clean and picked up. Utilities back of sites so be sure you have enough shore power and water hose. No cable but antenna will pull some channels. Night we were there it froze and lost signal a lot. Dirt and grass sites were muddy. Could use some gravel. But we would stay again to check out this area of Mississippi. We camped at River Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

When you are looking for the park do not be discouraged. It is there but down 61 about 5 miles or so from when you get off I-20. When you see the Dollar General on the left you will be getting close. Park is on the left so you will need to cross over.

We liked this simple RV park. No trees, fairly level gravel sites, wobbly WiFi, but it is close to Vicksburg and it is clean, with a good laundry. Staff took good care of us, even bringing our mail to the site. Our AT&T and Verizon hotspots worked well. We would certainly stay here again, if and when we revisit Vicksburg. We camped at River Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Positive things first. Really friendly owners, clean campground, easy for big rigs. Now the negative. Sites are not level at all. I think if the hookups were not at the back of the sites you might could get level. Everyone that was in the campground in an RV had the front end off the ground. Fire ants are horrible! You can see the beds OK but if it has rained they are all in the grass so you can't see them! Can't tell you how many times I was stung. Most of the picnic tables are in bad shape. I guess if you were only spending the nite and leaving early it would be OK but I won't stay again. We camped at River Town Campground in a Motorhome.

Office staff was nice. Park was clean, no trash about. Trash pickup at site daily. Easy in/out. Seven miles south of I-20. Easy to get to attractions. Nice grass space between sites but could not enjoy due to the grass badly needed mowing. Up past the ankles. A lot of fire ant beds. If you have AT&T for phone, no service. The picnic tables are bad. Rusted and the wood was rotten. Could not use. Will not stay her again. We camped at River Town Campground in a Motorhome.
