5 Reviews of Vicksburg Battlefield Campground
More a long term facility

I am not sure if this is truly a campground. It’s very convenient to the Vicksburg National Military Park and I20. However the place seems to be geared to long-term permanent residents.

Avoid at all costs as it looks like it lost the battle

I would give this campground less than 1 star if possible.  We did not stay here, but drove through the campground on 8-4-2019.  
The campground and motel appear to cater to those who would otherwise be homeless. The RV's that are in the cg are old, dilapidated with blue tarps on some of the roofs and junk and garbage outside many of the RV's. The sites are small and the hookups are questionable. 

It is sad that this cg that is so close to the Battlefield is in such a state of disrepair.

Close to Battlefield park

Close to Battlefield Park was the best thing. Sites were okay but road around park not good. Not what I would call family friendly. We just stayed for a place to sleep.

Good location

This was a great location if wanting to camp near the Vicksburg National military park. We walked to the park. Very few tent spots and most were in disrepair. The bathrooms were ok, they tried to keep them clean. The staff was friendly. Lots of highway noise, lots of noise from the permanent residents and their dogs. No wifi, no water.

First to Review
So this campground seems abandoned basically.

The light on the post above a very worn sign was lit. The cafe on site is closed, the water hookups for RVs produced nothing upon turning the handles. I didn't try the outlets on the sites. The light bulb outside of the building with a men's bathroom sign was lit but there was no sign indicating another door for women, and upon trying the men's the door was screwed shut. Ultimately I slept in the car with my two kids instead of setting up camp, peed in some bushes and bathed us clothed with cold hose water from the back of the cafe building in the morning. Nobody showed up to collect money, and there was no box to deposit it. Not terrible if you don't mind roughing it since it was essentially free and very beautiful, peaceful camping spot.
