Foscue creek

Loved this park. Big lots Playgrounds Boat access to most sites Concrete pads long enough to back trailer and truck in and not be in the road. Downfall was you had to be in or out of the park by 10pm bc the gate closes. And you have to go get the park ranger to open it. Other than that it was an amazing place. And plan to bring my kids back

Nice quiet week here.

6 sites. Shady all day.. no water, elec, and 1 pit toliet. PET FRIENDLY. my girls and i enjoyed our time walking around. Only thing to becareful of was the ants and ticks. Price was $10 a night with seniors 1/2 off

Hope your into waterfalls

If your looking for a really cool waterfall to go checkout this is your spot. Other than that I wouldn’t recommend camping there any longer than one or two nights at the most. (The water wheel does not work FYI) We will continue to stop by in passing but that’s about it. We also went at a bad time after the rain is not the ideal time the water was really high and the current was rapid

One of our favorites

Great campsites and cabins. Husband enjoys the fishing.

First time here

Had a great time and we will return! Staff was very friendly and nice!

Great location with friendly staff and a family atmosphere

This is a great campground with a friendly staff and great atmosphere. The sites are spacious and most are extremely shaded. The grounds and restrooms are clean and well maintained.

cabin fever

The people running this Koa were very friendly. The cabins are comfortable with an a/c unit. The kids love the elaborate slide built into the hill and the snack bar at the pool. This place is nothing fancy -but simple and just what we needed. There was access to a small general store, showers and laundry facility. There is a nice quiet area to hang hammocks and chill out. We cooked hot dogs and marshmallows in the campfire ring one night. Each cabin has a swing in front. There are several good restaurants nearby in Meridian. Great, restful weekend trip.

Great campground

We stayed there while working in MS. The owner was very nice and kept the place clean and kept a close eye on the campground. He lives on the grounds. there is a small store, water slide and swimming pool. and a club house on the grounds. I had heard during summer months they have a breakfast concession stand. They have full hooks up 30 & 50 amp, sewer, and water. We had great water pressure in our shower. I would recommend this campground. The campground is a bit off the beaten path, and you pass a salvage yard that is and eye sore, but don’t let that detour you from staying at the park.

Fun day trip

I took my dog, Lucas. We fished and walked around. This place is more popular than I realized and was a little busy when we went. Great experience though.

Very peaceful

Very quiet park. Nice walking trails. Beautiful lake. And one really tall tree!!

Pretty campground

Small campground on a lake. Pretty and quiet. Recent work on campsites to create level sites. Enjoy camping there.

Quiet place to stay the night

Lots of stairs to descend/ascend to get to the bottom of the falls. Nice historical building. I was the only camper there when I stayed. Very quiet.

Fun place for the family

I camped and kayak fished. Those park had the cleanest bath houses I've ever used and a splash pad for the kids to play in.

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.

We really loved the park.

some sites better than others, sewage hook up available , splash pad for kids and nice swimming, bath house clean and close. The only down side is garbage cans not at sites,has to be carried to trash bin

Peaceful Escape

Very nice sites and bath house. Grounds are kept in immaculent condition. Sites have electric, water and sewer. No cable TV but if you have HDTV antenna, you will get several Meridian stations. Reasonably priced. We are fortunate to have this quality campground nearby.

Clarkco Love ❤️

This is our second visit within a year to Clarkco. We’ve stayed on both loops. This time on loop 1 we were on site 4. It was tight to get into but had a lovely little land pier onto the lake. This is a very well kept park. The public facilities are very child friendly with a cool and colorful splash pad and cordoned off swimming area. Loop 1 also has a cordoned off swimming area. It’s truly a secret little gem hidden away. It is very quiet and each of the sites are large and private. The public restrooms and showers are extremely clean and well kept. Also they offer large pavilions for large group gatherings. Very dog friendly (we have 3) and the entire campground is respectful of quiet hours from 10 pm to 8 am. The Clarkco staff takes great pride in their facilities!! Thank you. You’ll fall in love with Clarkco too.

Perfect to split camping trip between this and Gin Creek

Twiltley Campground is the only full-service campground managed by the Corps of Engineers at Okatibbee Lake, a 11,000 acre multi-purpose recreation area in eastern Mississippi. Natural Features:Okatibbee Lake boasts 4,000 acres of water surface in the Pascagoula River Basin. Extensive beaver flowages, stump beds and old creek channels provide abundant cover where anglers battle largemouth and striped bass. Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures ranging from 70 to 98 degrees Fahrenheit. Recreation:With eagles and hawks in the area, families will enjoy keeping an eye out for these magnificent birds.

Water sports including fishing and water skiing are always popular on the lake; however, fishing from the banks also yields a good amount of crappie, bass and bream. Facilities:With four boat ramps and three designated swimming areas, theres plenty of ways to enjoy the lake shore. Many sites have electric hookups and theres a pay phone onsite. Nearby Attractions:Explore Chicasawhay and Okatibbee Creeks upstream of the lake. The creeks flow through the Okatibbee State Wildlife Area.

Fairly inexpensive camping right on lake!

First impressions are everything right! Well the camp immediately seemed well cared for, maintained, clean. It is pretty cheap 6$ for a tent site. There are only 7 sites and they are pretty close together. that is about the only con about this place. we had the site fairly to ourselves in april which i shocked about. if your into fishing, swimming, cheap, well maintained campground this is the place for you. We inflated the SUP and caused around a little. Well worth the 6$ Stayed for 2 nights. Lots of swimming fishing and paddle boarding.

On the Turkey Creek reservoir

By “water park” they mean “park with recreation activities on the water” not a man made park with slides and rides. This was devastating news for our friend’s young daughter! Enjoy fishing and especially water skiing with your own boat or a boat rented on site. There is mountain biking and hiking (all easy trails), a sandy beach, and just a nice relaxing atmosphere. The campgrounds are simple but modernized, moderate size, . They have a large building to rent for reunions.

Yay: great peaceful area with classic MS views. Wooded and private campsites.

Nay: costs a little more to access the lake (not bad, just a surprise). Not too far from Jackson so it felt a little crowded.

Surprise: we stayed here when the sites in the nearby National Forest were full and enjoyed it so much we added a day to our trip. That you can rent boats on site makes it so much easier!

Small, nice campground

We had a group of is that came to Clarkco for Labor Day weekend. It was a medium sized campground d, with good activities.

We parked our skoolie in an RV spot. The non-premium RV spots are a little oddly set up and can seem cramped, but we enjoyed our spot. The lakeside premium spots are where we will park next time. The bathrooms were nice and they also have a laundromat

My husband and friends canoed/kayaked and enjoyed the lake. Not much luck fishing though. We went on a small trail as well.

Camp store is slowly being restored. Not many options, but they are actively trying to add more supplies.


Great grounds, cabins, boating, and fishing!
