Awesome!

Camping for our anniversary! Drinking morning coffee by this beautiful scenery was amazing!

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 than those on the front. All sites have a parking spot. No sewer hookup but the dump site is really close.

There are two pull through ADA sites. This is a hidden gem!

First to Review
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.

Bathrooms are there but bring your own paper.

Another bad one on the north side

It seems that all of the campgrounds on the north side of Sardis Lake are a let down. This place is bad. Permanent looking residents. Campers blocking roads. There was even a camper backed up to the wall of the restrooms. There is a closed down store there. Roads in are bad as well. Do yourselves a favor and stay on the south side.

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 is the boat ramp and fish cleaning station. Granted, it’s closed right now, but they are very nice.

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.

Now, that having been said… the view is great. You can see out across the lake. There is plenty of space to hike and explore. It is a free campground, so really, one can’t complain.

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 not appear to have a water connection.

The dump site is not marked, but there is one. It is on the way out of the campground near the primitive campsites.

The primitive sites are amazing. Most overlook a small valley/bottom that allow for spectacular views and hiking.

If you are looking for someplace close to town, this isn’t your spot. It’s a bit of a hike to get back to it. Your GPS will tell you to take a back road, don’t. Go into Oxford and take Jackson Ave to North Oxford Loop. Much better roads this way.

Serene....

Local area lacks activities, but this park is a peace goldmine!

Amazing scenery

This place is absolutely beautiful. The birds migrating and stopping along the river make for such a relaxing and peaceful place to stop and relax. The town neighboring the park makes it difficult to do anything because there is not much there unless you plan on driving 30+ minutes away. However, the setting more than makes up for that.

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 was the orange cones blocking the sites. Then I guessed that meant the site was reserved. The shower house had washers and dryers in the middle area. The building was clean and maintained. It was centrally located. Across the street was a nice big field, playground and baseball diamond. The trails and disc golf was in the same area. There’s also a small lake with a dock. Otherwise Tombigbee SP really wasn’t that memorable.
