Pretty park; good walking. Sites are haphazardly laid out with no set site numbers. It was not crowded so we had no problem with spacing. The sites near the Trace could have some road noise. No dump station.
The entrance is nowhere near the museum. It is down a side road by the Shell station. There was some noise from the road but fairly quiet at night. Great hiking trails. This park does close due to flooding so call ahead. the woman checking us is was very uninformed about the park. You can walk the trail form the campground to the museum. It is about 2 miles round trip, not 2 1/2 miles like she said. The kids next door were having a lot of luck catching fish. This park fills up fast. It is down a long dusty road which several large class A coaches make ok. The bathhouse is up a lot of stairs or a long rickety ramp. Not one of the best I've seen.
Beautiful campground laid out around a lake. Sites are long and level concrete pads. Many are shady and have sewer. It is fairly close to a major road so there was some road noise. After 3 o’clock there was a lot of noisy activity on the lake. Good TV reception. Most of the trails allow ATVs and dirt bikes which is good if you enjoy that sort of thing but not if you are looking for a tranquil walking trail. No alcohol allowed or motorized toys; great bathrooms and the best laundry of any park with reasonable charges. They are putting in a new campground near the trail head. Unfortunately they clear cut and it will be years before there is any shade.
The park is right on the Natchez Trace. Most of the sites are beside a small lake. The sites are well spaced and fairly level but many are very short. There were also steep drop-offs around most sites. Only TV reception was PBS from Florence, AL. No garbage cans at sites, just a dumpster as you leave. Lots of good hiking trails. No laundry facilities.
This was a small park with mostly permanent campers. The spot we had was very shady and hard to level. There were really only 3 sites for overnighters. Had anyone gotten the site next to us it would have been too close. The walk through the park was nice. There was little else to do, although the day use area had plenty of space for playing. We stayed two nights but one would be better. The only place to walk is on a county road which was not busy thankfully. It was very quiet and the tent sites were a good ways from the bathrooms.
Close to I-20 which is great for travelers but you do get some highway noise. we stayed in the CCC campground. Our site was fairly private. The other campers were not as friendly as some campgrounds. In MS there is no Wi-Fi and apparently no one at the gate house. The walking in this park was good. The weather turned cold so we did not enjoy the lake as much as we wanted. they claim to have laundry facilities but there was one washer on a porch and no dryer. It would be a good overnight stop but not for long. I think the other campground looked better but not all those sites had sewer there. A lot of sites are short and poorly laid out i.e. table and barbecue behind your rig sharp drop-offs, etc. No set fire ring just built fires wherever suited you.
Most sites were very nice. The pull throughs were few and lacked privacy. They had reserved signs at our site so we could go straight there which was good as the ranger station was closed at the time we arrived. The ranger did tell us that if we took the trails to watch out for ticks. We kept our walking to the road. Met a lot of "snowbirds" heading home. It was fun talking to people from all over. It was very quiet. This was the most level concrete pad we have ever had. We were in campground B which is much nicer than campground A.
