Nice, Clean Campground

The campground was well maintained. The bathrooms were well kept, including showers. There is a day use area with a boat ramp, pavilion, beach, and playground. The only downside is the sites are very close together! We stayed in a tent and I booked based on the map. The tent sites are not shown…

Great for families! Trash location is an issue though

The campsites were nice. They clouded full hookups, a picnic table and fire ring. The area was clean and surroundings wooded. Neighboring camping spots were adequately spaced. There were lots of areas for kids to play, including a large playground, a baseball/kickball field and hiking/biking…

Busier than expected

I camped here just one night in May 2021 on a Saturday, I got there at about 3pm and was the first there but by nightfall every site was full. People stayed quiet with the exception of a 12:30am arrival man who walked onto my site right up to my tent to I guess see if anyone was there?? I’m a solo…

Still nice but it has gotten noisy

This is our second review of this campground. While still a well maintained campground, the noise is ridiculous. The fellow a couple of spots over has mowed the grass of his campsite three times since arriving. Nothing like a loud gas mower running constantly to grate on the nerves.

Great hidden spot

We’ve frequented this small space since childhood. It’s very well remote off of HWY 30 in the Holly Springs National Forest.

It’s fairly well patrolled by game wardens and the camping spots are well maintained.

Self check in is handled at the permit box upon turning off the highway. Be mindful…

Decent enough for a couple days.

This is very near my home. It's a decent enough area for a day or two but not enough for an extended stay for me personally. Facilities are really only maintained during peak season and even then I've been greeted by dirty showers and restrooms more than once. The swimming area steps are quite…

The locals like it - and that’s a plus

This is the first campground we have stopped at this week that had more than one other camper. I’d guess they were 70% full.

Most of the folks we met were local, here for a weekend away and outdoors. Lots of families with kids. Everyone was super friendly and welcoming.

The camp host came by just…

Peaceful, nice and clean

Had been wanting to try this campground out for a year. We decided last minute to make the trip this weekend. Super nice park host! Bathrooms were A+++ clean! No showers due to covid. Loved that almost all spot were right at the water edge. Literally. All types of birds to watch. Squirrels too. The…

Quiet weekend campsite

This is somewhat of a rustic hidden gem! It’s off the beaten path, so it wasn’t very busy. The sites at the end with the lake view are nice. There is only one bath house, so it’s kind of a far walk from some of the sites. The boat ramp is very close by.

I am giving this one 3 stars because the…

How did I not know this was here?

Wow! What a great little campground. It is maintained very well. There is a great little playground for little ones. Easy access to fishing and water sports when the lake is up. When the lake is down, explore the lake bottoms. Sites on the back side of the loop are spaced out much more nicely…

Boondocking? This one might work

No hookups. Nothing. But, it is a free campground so what can you say. It’s rather nice there. This is a very small campground with about 5 spots. Large rigs are a no go I would think, as access can be tight. If you’re in a small to medium travel trailer or a tent, this could work out.

Rough is too light of a word

Not sure what else to say. This place is rough. The app lists two campgrounds. Only one is here and it is not run by the COE. Most spots were empty. For the view you are looking across the street at a run down trailer park. Much better options on this wonderful lake.

The one good spot on this…

Well... you could camp here

This is a small campground, consisting of five tent sites. The websites states you can bring a small camper here, but in wouldn’t try it. The bathrooms are run down and have a port a potty feel. The roads in are horrible. There are people riding off road vehicles in the lake bottoms quite often.…

Beautiful Campground

This is a beautiful campground. Sites are nestled in the woods and neighbors aren’t too close. Much of the campground is closed for winter right now, but the lack of a crowd just adds to the appeal.

Most sites have water and electrical hookups but no sewer. We did see at least one site that did…

Older park

Tombigbee SP

Elvis was born in Tupelo, Mississippi and Tombigbee SP is a good spot to base your exploration out of.

I overnighted here enroute to Alabama. It wasn’t the best maintained or newest park , however it was small and quiet. Something that had me confused my first time around the loop…
