Nice and quiet

New to fulltime rv life we chose to spend a week at this quiet off the beaten path campground on our way west . This place offers nice concrete pads with full hookups that are relatively level. Water level in Enid Lake was very low so the swimming beach was closed. That was kind of a bummer because Temps were in the 80's. Our Verizon signal was strong enough to browse and stream with no issues but the over the air TV channels were non existent. The nearest town of any size is Batesville about 30 miles north if you need a Walmart. The price is right at 20 bucks a night and we don't regret stopping over here one bit.

A decent but older campground.

We stay at Cossar pretty often, due to it being close to home. We have always stayed on the Yocona Ridge loop, and it has been a nice campground. The facilities are dated, but they keep them very clean. We did drive through the other loop (it was empty and closed at the time, the ranger let us look at it) and it appears to be much older than Yocona Ridge. There were trees/limbs down everywhere and the sites were pretty close to each other. 

We had decent cell phone service here. There is no park WIFI. There is a Frisbee golf course that has gotten better over time. The course is now marked very well. The miniature golf course is old, but kids will still like it. 

Some of the campers are also employees of the park. One lady just kept coming over and talking non-stop on this visit.

Finally fixing this one up

This is an old campground. The sites are not well marked, so make sure you get there during daylight. We have camped here a few times, as it is relatively close to home. They are finally beginning to work on the other side of the campground to get it opened back up. This has the potential to be a great spot. Most of the sites on the edges are in the sun most of the day, so be aware of that. The park is nice and peaceful, with plenty of fishing and boating opportunities. No real hiking to speak of, one short trail nearby.

First to Review
Nice But Filthy

Nice wooded area along the western tip of Sardis lake. We pulled in and the pay station was covered so unable to pay the $10 fee, but the gate was open, bathrooms were open and dumpster unlocked. Got a spot right near the water…well actually we could have grabbed any spot because we were the only ones in the park. 

The park could have been really nice but there was a lot of garbage around the fire pits and in the water, however the bathrooms were clean. 

Stayed one night only. Good cell reception with AT&T and Verizon.

Great for families

Loved camping so close to the water! Clean, nice facilities. Not the best swimming hole, but great for boats and paddling!

A place to park

This isn't a campground, but more of a place to park your RV if you have other things to do in the area or just need a place to park and sleep. Seems that many people come here for the Blues Festival. Sites are tight and no picnic tables or fire rings.

Dub Patgton Recreation Area COE

October 16-17, 2019. Site 14 had electric and water. Campground had dump station, showers and flush toilets. Rate was $10 with Sr Lifetime Pass. Verizon 1 bar, boosted got 2 bars. See RV Camping Journal for details.

Nice place to stop along the way

We just stay for a one night stay along our way. Super nice staff, beautiful campground and so helpful. I would go here again

Nice COE Campground

Mississippi does a great job of maintaining their COE campgrounds. Nice, spacious spots underneath large Pine trees. Water views and access to the Lower Lake. There is a popular swim beach, boat launch and boat dock. The spillway is also close by for fishing. Do not get this park confused with the John Kyle State Park Campground that is directly next to this one. This park is much nicer!
