About North Abutment
North Abutment Campground is located on the north end of Grenada Dam on Grenada Lake. The campground is an excellent destination for boating and fishing. The region is steeped in history, with an array of civil war landmarks. In summer, Grenada Lake is home to the annual Thunder on Water Safe Boating Festival. Featured events include concerts, a youth fishing rodeo, tractor pull and fireworks display. Recreation In addition to general lake activities like boating, fishing, picnicking and sailing, the region boasts a sports complex, baseball fields, an 18-hole golf course and a fitness trail. Facilities This modern campground is equipped with 88 RV site pads, each with a parking apron and 50 amp electric and water hookups and campsites #2-15 are equipped with sewer hookups. Of the 88 campsites 56 are reservable and the remaining 32 are non-reservable. The lake is accessible via nearby boat ramps, found just outside of the campground. The campground also has an amphitheater in Phase 1. Natural Features The campground is on the north shore of Grenada Lake. Several campsites face the water May through August, but the water level is dropped for water storage in winter, making the shoreline as far as a mile from the campground. Within the campground there is a small 17 acre lake that has a swimming beach and is stocked with Bream, Largemouth Bass, and Catfish for the campers to enjoy catching. Grenada Lake is on the Yalobusha and Skuna Rivers in Mississippi. The man-made lake has about 148 miles of shoreline and holds 35,820 acres of water. Nearby Attractions Visit the Haserway Wetland Demonstration Area, a 100-acre reservoir of bottomland hardwood trees, five moist soil management areas, two millet ponds and a 1.5-mile interpretive trail. The campground is just five miles from the city of Grenada. Charges & Cancellations Aations are subject to additional fees. $10.00 service fee will apply if you change or cancel your reservation.

5 Reviews of North Abutment
We were we were there midweek, so had lots of available sites. Many of the sites have lots of room and are spaced away from their neighbors. Ranger was very nice and helpful. We chose the loop that overlooked the small lake.
Simple waterfront site close to town. Activities like boating, beach, playground, cookouts, very short easy hiking trails, fishing. The campgrounds have a few different loops to choose from, some on a large lake and one on a smaller artificial lake.
Yay: great campground hosts, they were so knowledgable and helpful and take such great care of the site. Very shady with lots of trees and grassy areas to create privacy. Very large camping sites and some are right on the water. Nay: the tent pads are concrete, not my favorite but not a problem really.
Surprise: lots of historical sites nearby (we didn’t go but heard good things).
Rolling hills in Mississippi but all the sites are level concrete pads with water and electric (50A). There are three circles each with their own dump station and paved roads. Loop 1-36 over looks Grenada Lake with several sites having nice water access. Many have great views but I really liked 14 and 17. Loop 37-61 used to be the tent loop so the sites were a bit closer and the road was less big rig friendly but still quite nice. We were in site 50. The other loop, 62-88, over looks a pond with a swimming area and two fishing piers. Each loop has 10 first come sites so about 60% are reservable. If you have reservations, remember your site number since there is no one working at the gate (there is none).
This place was full of families for the Memorial Day weekend. We just relaxed and did a little people watching. The cg is right next to the earthen dam that you drive over to go to the town of Grenada. Grenada Lake is quite nice with a few day use areas and a State Park CG on the banks of the Outflow Channel. There is a Visitor Center on the other side of the dam that has a nice view of the dam and lake. Within the cg, there is a dam to form a pond. You have to drive over that dam to get to one of the loops. Kinda crowded but a nice place to ride bikes, at least all the kids thought so. Golf carts are popular with the locals.
This place is beautiful and the amphitheater was used this past weekend for a wedding and it was absolutely gorgeous.

I love camping here. The campsites are always clean, and it is always a wonderful experience camping here. The camp host at either of the 3 loops are always friendly and happy to see people come in and stay. Campsites close to the water, beautiful sunrises and fun for the whole family.
