About Shawnee/Pine Hills Campground

Pine Hills campground has level campsites with open grassy areas between campsites. Popular with hunters in the spring and fall, the campground is also ideal for those who like to view nature, go birding, hike or take a scenic drive. Pine Hills Road leads to the top of the bluffs and features panoramic views of the LaRue Swamp and Mississippi River floodplain. Located adjacent to one of the largest natural areas in the state Pine Hills is ideal for nature lovers. In addition the Snake Road, located at the bottom of the bluffs is closed biannually to vehicular traffic, to protect the thousands of the reptiles and amphibians as they migrate between their summer and winter habitats.     Pine Hills Campground  Map

Very quiet

Only 1 other camper when I showed up. Very quiet and clean ( although you do hear a train whistle occasionally). Beware, more ants than I've ever seen in Site 2. I moved to site 1 lol. Great spot if you want some solitude but still wanna feel safe ( sheriff drove through on patrol twice while I was there)

Beautiful new Picnic shelter, quiet campground

This is a very basic campground with some shade. No hookups, really good for tent camping. The new picnic shelter is beautiful and there is seating around a fire pit. This forest does a great job of keeping restrooms very clean.

Remotely lovely

Tent sites with no electricity or water. Clean toilets and a covered pavilion for getting out of the rain when needed.
