This is a lovely national forest (Homochitto), very peaceful and classical Mississippi beauty. The developed part of the park is simple with picnic tables and a basic campground. There’s a short little trail around the lake (where you can go swimming, boating, fishing) and a much longer one out through the forest. Simple and absolutely beautiful camping here.
Yay: The park is historic in that it has classic CCC style buildings, but the restrooms have been updated. We stayed at the camping loop up above the lake. Both loops have some sites close to the water, both are very wooded. They also have a site for groups that is far enough away from the normal sites to keep noise down.
Nay: dirt roads can be hard for some vehicles, but if you have a 4x4 or horses they would be great for exploring.
Surprise: love the trail around the lake, especially the boardwalks. Would be amazing in fall but we haven’t been back then yet!
This is a great little campground. Well kept and off the beaten path. Great for day use or camping. It's has a lake for swimming or fishing and even known to have weddings there. Very secluded and wooded area. Hiking & biking trails. During the summer it might be a little bit busier but during the off season it is less crowded especially during the weekdays. Very quiet and peaceful. Perfect for RVer's and campers. They do have showers which are perfect for handicap folks as well. A large pavilion to hold great get togethers even on those rainy days. Don't be surprised in the evening to found you have visitors such as raccoons or possums …they are looking for treats. I was lucky enough to never cross paths with a snake but be on the alert they are out there. This is a nice drive back off the main road so if you forget anything or need ice and such you will be gone for a bit. So take it with you when you head in the first time. As always have fun and be safe. Happy Camping :)
We went at the end of season so the site was empty except for us. There is a great lake that you can swim in. They were working on the trails so there were only a couple different options but there was 1 or 2 longer hikes that we completed.
