This KOA is a decent place. We arrived after the office was closed. We had called ahead and they had a site saved for us. The only issue was, we could not find the site. It was a tent site and we could not find the assigned one. Being the off season and not crowded we just grabbed an empty site. The map they left only had the tent area not individual tent sites marked.
Bathrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. Grounds were clean. Very quiet place. I would stay here again. I looked like all the camper sites were clean and level.
Only reason for the 4 stars and not 5 is due to the site we were assigned to not being marked. Other than that it would be a 5.
Part 2: We had a mechanical issue with one of our motorcycles and the staff at the KOA went out of there way to assist us. They gave us a break on the 2nd night stay due to our situation. Changing this to a 5!!
I rolled into this camp around 4 in the evening looking for a place for the night. Be aware this site requires registration on the park service website. You have to make reservation and pay online due to covid 19 prevention measures. They can not accept payment at the gate! I was the only one in the primitive area and it was really nice and quiet. The closest toilet is an outhouse but in the RV section there is a nice bathhouse and bathrooms that are well maintained and stocked. I saw Deer, Geese and Turkey.
We arrived at Twiltley Branch at 10pm after two other campgrounds were unexpectedly closed. The caretakers had us check in online and let us sneak into the primitive campsite even though they were technically closed for the night. We drove to the site in the dark and set up camp, not quite knowing what to expect. There were only two other campers at the site, the campground had water stations and fire pits with attached cooking grills and a very well kept outhouse. The best thing about this site was the access to the lake and the little beach where you can wade and swim! This campsite is prone to flooding so it’s not always available. There is a boat launch nearby so we did hear some traffic from boats coming and going but otherwise it was nice and quiet.
Pro tip. There are two campsites right by the lake that are secluded and shaded by trees. They give you almost private access to the lake!
This was such a lovely surprise and we had a great stay!
We visit Pickensville Campground a lot because my MIL lives in Pickensville down the road from the campground. Friendly staff. We stayed at site 126. It was on the river across from the bathrooms. Site we stayed at had power and water hookups. They have a community dumping station. I think some of the sites have sewer hookup but ours didn’t.
Nice campground on the western shore of Lake Okatibbee in Lauderdale Co, MS. Lots of sites right on the lake. There are three loops in the campground. Two loops have electric (50amp) and water hook ups. There are no waste hook ups due to the possible flooding of the campgrounds on occasions. There is a dump site at the camp grounds. One of the loops has no electric or water hook ups. There is one bath house with stainless fixtures that is fairly maintained. Make your reservations online at Recreation.gov before you go. We went to bed with the frogs croaking and awakened with the birds chirping. Nice campgrounds. Great access to the lake. Lots of shady spots also.
Basic tent camping not far from water on Lake Okatibbee in Lauderdale Co, MS. This place is no reservations, first come first served. There are no showers but there is a pit toilet. The grounds are kept up pretty good there is a picnic grill and a fire ring. It is only 10$ and uses the honor system.
I stumbled upon this campground in search of waterfront sites, and it delivered! My husband and I were fortunate to stay here twice, and it is by far our favorite campground we have visited since we began our camping adventures last year. It is such a peaceful, quiet campground and was not crowded at all for our Thanksgiving and Christmas stays. The campground hosts were very friendly, and check in was a breeze. The hosts patrolled the campground often, and we felt very safe here. Although we didn’t utilize the bathhouse or laundry facilities, they were very clean and heated. The park felt very secluded, but Walmart was just a short drive away when we needed to pick up a few things we had forgotten. We also appreciated that we had cell phone service (AT&T) at all times in order to stay in touch with family, and we were able to use our hot spot for streaming Netflix in the evenings.
During our first stay during the Thanksgiving break, we camped at site 29 after seeing video reviews of this particular site, and we really enjoyed having views of the lake from three sides. The site was very spacious and level, and we appreciated the general layout and amenities (fire ring, movable picnic table, grill, and lantern post). Although this site had many great qualities, we were surprised by the constant boat/fishing traffic just across the lake. The fishermen’s voices really carried across the lake, so it just didn’t feel very private. Also, backing our 21’ travel trailer into the site took some maneuvering because of the trees at the driveway entrance.
After exploring the different sites in the campground during our first stay, we found that the sites on the other side of the Black Gum Loop were much better suited to our taste since they faced the dam instead of the boat launch. We stayed at site 47 during our second stay and really loved the view and solitude. This was also a spacious site with great views of the lake. We will definitely visit Twiltley again!
