Small but fun

Waterpark is lake fed so not crystal clear water but clean and fun

long term only and rough

This is a long term only trailer park, short term camping or tents are not allowed as per manager. Everything I saw had not moved in a long time and had "structures" added on to it.

Great campground

Very clean sites and well maintained. So much outdoor activities to do. Great place to camp. Friendly staff.

Rural camping

Nice park with plenty of tent and motor home/trailer parking. Water and power at all spots.

1st timer.

I swim there every weekend. I’m a beginner camper so this is where I’ll go for 1st time. They have good swimming areas & a splash pad & playground.

Well run, clean and lots to do!

Paul B Johnson has a ton of open and varied camping spots and areas. Some are great for hanging out with your friends for a long holiday weekend. 

The lake is good for swimming and fishing, but not huge so motor boats are limited in their movement, especially on crowded weekends.

Tons of sites and something for everyone!

Flint creek has TONS of sites with full hook ups in 30 and/or 50 amp and even a primitive (water only) tent sites. Different sections allow folks to feel like they are away from the crowds.  Price is absolutely reasonable and there is night security by staff and local law enforcement.

The water park has a ton of slides and will keep kids young and old entertained sliding down the hill into the lake.

Several swimming holes and boat ramps lets you enjoy the lake however you want.

Nice and Woodsy

Flint Creek has a little of everything for everyone. There’s a large lake which is good fishing (there’s a boat launch in the park and in the campground itself) beach swimming areas (one for day use and the other for the campers) there’s an updated water park with slides and a lazy river. The water for this is pumped in from the lake so it’s not a fresh blue water like in a swimming pool! There’s a section of first come first served campsites and a section of reservation only sites. All the sites are blacktopped and are very nice. The bathhouses could use some attention though. The town of Wiggins has lots of restaurants and grocery stores very close by.

Great for Overnight

While maybe not a destination site, it’s great for overnighting. We’ve stayed here for an overnight several years in a row on our way to Gulf Shores from Central AR. Concrete pads, full hookups, excellent satellite reception throughout the park. The RV Park is adjacent to a multi purpose facility. Rodeo, barrel racing, concerts, gatherings, etc. In our stops here, the park has never been more than a 1/3 occupied. Plenty of spaces to choose from. Payment is the honor system. $20 on the way out!

My Absolute Favorite

LBC is my favorite campground that I’ve ever been to. The sites are nice and spacious. All are blacktopped. Some have wooden decks. We’ve stayed along the waterside which is AMAZING and have also stayed across the street from the beach! The playground is small and sweet. The beach/swim area in the campground needs to be taken care of. The grass is starting to overgrow in that particular area which is a shame because the rest of the park is so very well taken care of.

A decent spot, not really “disperse”.

It’s pretty close to the road and the drive in loop has cars making noise and lights all night.

Good because I was only one of 2 people there.. I imagine more people would be not as great a place.

Very Quit

Nice and quit. Security cameras throw out the park. Have handicap bathrooms and Laundry room. Very clean throw out the park. Place to walk your dogs.

Good for All Ages!

My husband and I are 4H Outdoor Skills Instructors. We took our class on their first hike here. The kids as well as the adults had a good time. The Nature Trail was a little short (under an hour) but that is perfect for little kids.

Nice and quiet but nothing fancy

Mostly filled with full-timers / trade workers they don't do reservations but they do reserve 5 pull thru sites for people passing through.

We had a good experience checking in and the staff was very friendly. The restrooms were clean at the main office and there is a lake onsite. Fishing is catch-and-release during the week but you can keep a certain number of fish on the weekends.

The sites were soft/sandy and not super level. My in laws had their front tires of the RV off the ground after leveling.

Fires are allowed but no fire pit is provided.

Awesome weekend camp

This camp was pretty awesome for free really, it was clean restrooms..clean water.. no electricity but that was okay we chose campsite #1 because it was the only site on the side of the river. Site #1 had it’s own little paths down to the river however I’d recommend walking down the gravel road to the sandbar. Overall I WILL continue to come here

Fun place to stay

We enjoy this campground for many reasons- fishing, beach/swim area, nice campsites. They also have a couple playgrounds and a splash pad for the kids.

Canoe country

Great spot for a float trip or canoe trip. Stop and fish during your trip. I have canoed this creek many times and it feels different even time. Great place to get cool and hangout.

Fun Summer Stop

Great place for a camp out. Fishing, splash pad, swimming, nature trails and even firework shows on July 4th and New Years.

Clean -coin washer/dryer by showers-camper parking sometimes difficult

No pull throughs….some spots are hard to park campers in…clean and full hook ups in all spots

I love Airey Lake!

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.

Great flat ground for tent camping

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.

Great place to camp!

This is a great place to camp. Swimming, boating, hiking, fishing, and small playground available. The water park is not anything “great”, but it’s something for little kids ($12) per person.

Nice Park

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.

LOVE THIS CAMPGROUND

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.

Great place

Great place for the weekend or the week. Tent spots. Camper spots with hookups or cabins to rent 640 acre stocked lake and you won’t find a more friendly and helpful staff

Maynor Creek

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.

Peaceful campground

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.

Our favorite!

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.
