Closed

Due to vandalism, the park is closed until further notice. However, it does seem rather run down and doesn’t look like it’s been used in the last couple of years that much. Too bad.

I cannot recommend this campground.

We used this campground as an overnight on our way to Arkansas, was going to stay on the way back but cancelled due to our experience the first night.  Roads inside the campground were atrocious, required dodging tree limbs and holes. The entire campground seemed run down, camp host site looked…

About This Campground

Overview

Chewalla Lake Recreation Area is located in the Holly Springs Ranger District in northern Mississippi. Visitors enjoy swimming and relaxing on the sandy beach on the lake shore, as well as canoeing, kayaking and fishing.

Recreation

Chewalla Lake covers 260 acres and is a no-wake lake, making it a perfect location for swimming, canoeing and kayaking. Anglers enjoy fishing for smallmouth bass, bream, crappie and catfish. A boat ramp is located on-site.

Facilities

DUE TO COVID THE RESTROOMS AND TENT CAMPING ARE UNAVAILABLE. The campground offers sites for RV camping. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. RV sites have electric and water hookups. During the season the campground is open 24 hours and does not close on the major holidays, i.e. Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day, allowing families and friends to celebrate together. Don't fret if you happen to arrive later in the day or evening for your reservation we will leave a note up on the site showing that its reserved.

Natural Features

The lake is surrounded by a dense forest of pine and hardwoods, such as sweet gum and oak. Many dogwoods are scattered throughout the campground, creating a beautiful, blooming display in the springtime.

The campground lies on land once used heavily for farming. Erosion has caused deep gullies to form throughout the area, but split-rail fences line the gullies, adding character to the facility.

Nearby Attractions

Holly Springs is 8.5 miles northwest of the lake. This charming town is known as the Antebellum Capitol of the mid-south. More than 200 buildings in town are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A variety of dining and shopping options are available, as well as grocery stores and gas stations.
