Cozy setting and secluded
No pull throughs….some spots are hard to park campers in…clean and full hook ups in all spots
I have been here many times. This campground is a stop halfway through the Tuxachanie trail. It is a quaint park with 4 designated campsites with tables and fire rings. However, it is very common to see tents all around the lake and other spots including secluded spots that are permissible. The campground is free of charge with no showers and a water pump by the one stall bathroom.
Nice quiet family campground. Two pools both fed by on site natural springs. Bogue Chitto river runs right alongside. Fishing, tubing, swimming. All easily accessible. You can’t beat the rate either! We will definitely be returning!
Great flat ground for tent camping. We were in campsite 3 and it was huge. Perfect for a scout troop or other large group. Also had ample trees with perfect spacing for hammock camping.
Close bathroom is a bit of a dump, full of spiderwebs, and unclean, but if you walk to the new trading post across the street, there are nice bathrooms.
picnic tables and trash cans at each campsite. Close location to canoe and kayak rentals.
The best sites are the first come first serve sites. These sites are in the Mohawk area. I would avoid the Kahaka area if you want a beach area as there isn’t one. All the bathrooms have no air conditioning. There are boat launches and many sites that you can anchor your boat at or near by.
There is zip lining, frisbee golf and many great sites by the water. The park is well maintained with a very friendly staff! There is a large beach area and trails to hike. There are beautiful clean cabins to rent as well. Most sites have full hook-ups. I highly recommend this campground.
Beautiful views! Lake is very peaceful. Staff is super friendly and very helpful. There sites are single and a few double, most are full hook up but not all so if sewer is a must have make sure to ask for full hook ups. There are lots of good shaded sites! Campsites seem well maintained, not all level but nothing that can’t be worked with. There are lake front spots. There are cabins, boat launch, rental boats. Sites have BBQ pits fire rings and picknic tables.
Campground is first-come, first-serve, but when we went there were plenty of spaces available. It was quiet and peaceful with lots of space in between each group. There is no campground host or check-in service. There is a toilet and sink, but I would bring your own toilet paper, handsoap/sanitizer, etc. We only had time to briefly walk one of the trails around the lake but it was very nice.
Been going to Paul B for more that 40 years. Love it’s wide open views and lake sites. Big lake with rental boats available. Beautiful beach & swimming behind the lodge & another swimming area to cool off. Disc golf course is fun. New water splash pad is tons of fun (extra $). Hattiesburg is about 8 miles away with lots to do - movies, dining, churches, etc.
Lots of shade and trees. Bring bug spray. The beaches are nice for campers.
A very huge manmade lake with beautiful scenary. Campsites overlooking lake and beach area. Cool breezes under the many shady trees. Lite area and clean rest areas. We have been enjoying this park for 40 years. The new owners have done a fantastic job and keep the park clean. There is a camp store, cabins for rent, zipline, canoes, disk golf, and golf carts for rent. I highly recommend this park and will continue to enjoy it for many more years.
Nice, quiet, free campground. This campground has no security & is not locked at night. Campsites with firepits available on a first come, first serve basis. Running water available from a spigot. The bathroom was a single toilet and sink. While relatively clean, this is definitely a bring your own TP bathroom. The area is beautiful with lots of trails and a lake. Overall, nice campground that felt pretty safe.
We camped on the lake. We enjoyed the large size of the park, he lake, and surroundings. Clos enough to town, but far enough out. The spots are a good size, but hold out for a lake spot!
Their “Camp store” doesn’t have much, just ice, Wood, and propane. Come prepared!
The lake is a good size with options for fishing or watersports.
Drove in a night so wasn't able to appreciate the beauty until the next morning. Decent sized lake with hiking trails and fishing.. picnic tables which makes for easy cooking when your used to nation Forrest with no amenities. Pet friendly and quiet. The 2nd night we were there met an awesome group of hikers that where on a multi day hike can't remember the name of the trail. Would recommend staying here.
This is a nice little fishing-focused area within the northern part of large national forest. The large lake has swimming, fishing, and boating so plan to be on the water all day. There is a nice shady area along the lake with picnic tables and grills. The hiking trail is very short. We spent half a day here relaxing while on a road trip and the mellow atmosphere was just perfect. Convenient to and from Hattiesburg/rt 59 as well as from Mobile.
Yay: Campground is nice and shady and all the sites are close to the water. Clean with basic facilities. Simple but nice nature setting. Close to trails in the national forest.
Nay: No complaints, but if you don’t have a boat there’s not much to do on site.
Surprise: They stock the lake with fish. Loved walking out onto the pier.
This is a very simple little campground, but has good amenities like hot showers. We stayed here to go to the wildlife refuge nearby. The main attraction on site is a lake for boating and fishing, which we didn’t end up using. Sites are partially shady, fairly open, but right along the lake. Not a major attraction park, but good for what it is!
This is the furthest campground northeast in the forest/park, making it as far away from New Orleans as possible…which is nice for minimizing crowds. Perfect base camp for traveling deep into DeSoto National Forest while still being close enough to civilization (quaint Beaumont!).
Yay: Campground has everything you want (hot showers, electric) while still being rustic. Most of the sites are right along the little lake so we fell asleep in our tent to the sound of water.
Surprise: my phone interpreted “Lake Perry” as “Perry Lake” which is in Kansas!! Luckily we caught on quick lol! We enjoyed Black Creek Trail and kayaking.
Easy to reserve a primitive spot. You can be up close and personal with your neighbors or tucked back into the woods by yourself. Showers, toilets, and washing facilities are available near by. Boating, swimming and fishing. All in all a good park for families or singles..
I have not camped at this site but I have fished many times in the lake. It is a very nice sized lake and is stocked with bass, blue gill and red ear, crappie and catfish. It has several piers to fish. It is a state lake and is kept up by the MDWFP. It has a nice bath house that I believe was rebuilt fairly recently. It does have several camping pads available with electricity and water hook ups.
Loved, loved this Campground…This was always our go-to. Lake is always great. Nearby Hiking trail a few geocaches and then there is the water park… I grew up in the old water park and it was great but when they upgraded, and it needed an upgrade bad, all the prices for pat Harrison went up… They have just started clearing the brush around the campsites, much needed, but there are so many things that are in disrepair and are taking a back seat to the water park. The bathrooms are always clean and in great working order… And the views of the lake are phenomenal. I gave it the rating because I see so much potential that is not being used.
We live in the area and used to frequent this Campground alot. We do get a few day trips to let the kids play on the play ground. They are letting the Campground get run down. We loved this spot and it's always on the list for a spontaneous trip but other than the disc golf course and the splash pad there really isn't much to talk about here…
This campground only has 10 or so sites and could be tricky with large rigs. But if you're able to get in it's great. Very quiet with beautiful views from most sites. If you want to relax on a nice lake and fish or kayak this is the place. Oh and at $13 per night with water and electric you can afford to stay awhile.
