We've camped to Tishomingo State at least 3 times in the last 6 months. It's the first site we visited after purchasing our Wildwood Travel Trailer. Sites are level and most are easy to back the trailer into. No full hookups but all the sites have electricity and water. Plenty of trees and amazing views from all the site. Cellphone coverage is not good here for Verizon or AT&T. Better at front of camp.
I can't state enough how much there is to do in Tishomingo! Plenty of trails that would satisfy an Ultramarathoner. A lake for fishing (honestly never seen anyone catch a fish 🐟) and canoeing. Tishomingo has disc golf, large pavilions, and historic sites to visit.
Overall it's always clean when we've been there but there is quite a bit of age on the campsite. Roads are pretty rough in areas as well.

Super easy access from the Natchez Trace Parkway. All sites are level concrete but narrow. No room for error on either side. Grills and some picnic tables close to each site but not close to be convenient to an RV kitchen. At 20.00 a night it is well worth an overnight stay.
We visited Tishomingo State Park in May, 2020. Generally, the park was ok. While the pads on the camper sites were level, almost all of them had a serious drop off almost immediately, so it was almost impossible to enjoy sitting under the awning near the camper. The facilities were closed due to Covid-19. The hiking nearby was fabulous, make sure to see the swinging bridge.
Located in a beautiful area. However, when we camped the campground was full and some people had little respect for their fellow campers. One group allowed their children to continue to yell and scream late into the night. It’s unfortunate there are no rangers patrolling and educating campers on appropriate campground behavior. Campsite provide no privacy and are very close together as well. Bathroom facilities are clean and well maintained.
Tishomingo SP is a short drive for us from Memphis. We wanted to give it a shot and booked a site (#32). We were self-contained in our RV and thank goodness because the nearest bathhouse was a hike! The campground was ok. Our site was level. Fire ring, picnic table, etc were fine. We booked there because of the swimming pool. It was one of the first weekends it was open and the pool area was in serious need of some TLC. Pool was fine and the kids loved it, but the chemicals in the water destroyed mine and my wife’s smart watches 😳.
We barely hiked and had to ride out a thunderstorm but we didn’t regret our trip. I don’t believe any sites had sewer. The circle at the end would be great to reserve with a group of friends (assuming you’re self-contained). All sites have access to the lake and if you had a canoe or kayak, it’d be easy to access.
Overall, it’s not the best park I’ve been to but it’s not the worst. Not bad for $22/night.
