Beautiful spacious camping areas

Beautiful spacious camping spots spread quite a distance apart. On flat concrete very nice showers and interesting trails with a pretty lake too! 

The campground needs some upkeep.

We visited Tishomingo State Park in May, 2020. Generally, the park was ok. While the pads on the camper sites were level, almost all of them had a serious drop off almost immediately, so it was almost impossible to enjoy sitting under the awning near the camper.  The facilities were closed due to Covid-19.  The hiking nearby was fabulous, make sure to see the swinging bridge.

Peaceful Place

Was able to take a trip to Tishomingo to camp and enjoy the nice cool weather moving into MS. Love this little place. Great for families with many hiking trails and 3 disc golf courses.

Good enough

Located in a beautiful area. However, when we camped the campground was full and some people had little respect for their fellow campers. One group allowed their children to continue to yell and scream late into the night. It’s unfortunate there are no rangers patrolling and educating campers on appropriate campground behavior. Campsite provide no privacy and are very close together as well. Bathroom facilities are clean and well maintained.

Quiet

Due to the "pandemic" the park was a little short staffed but the gentleman there was very helpful once he got to the office. I was only there for the one night but it was beautifully quiet and fairly well kept. I'd stay there again for sure.

Remote & Serene

This state park is definitely “off the beaten path” — but if you’re looking for a quiet location, with few spaces for additional RV’s; this may be for you. (In total, there may be 18.. but they were not all occupied during our visit.) RV spacing is not bad.. most with full hookups.

The green space; natural habitat and night sounds get high marks from us.

Apple “Maps” took us on an interesting way to get to the park from the interstate.. we were concerned about low hanging tree limbs with our rig; but everything turned out ok.

If you like to jog; this is a great space for it. And, if you like disc golf, there’s an entire course.

We will be back.

To Each His Own

The park was nice but it's not my style of camping or at least not my site #008. My view was surrounded by campers, felt packed in like a sardine. (At the entrance to the camp sites seem to be the best ones, they'd be on the left as you enter) Some it may not bother them but I like more open wide spaces with my view of trees or a lake at least. Bathrooms were okay. No gate after hours. Very quiet though. Hiking was nice and there are many trails. Staff was Very friendly!!

The best in Mississippi

Excellent hiking. Primitive camping sites available, but are developed with fire rings & mingled in with RV camping. Cabins in park as well

Pleasantly surprised!!

We have camped at several MS state parks near Memphis (Tishomingo, Wall Doxey) and have left feeling like MS didn’t have a lot to offer, but Tombigbee State Park is great. There is a video included in the post which includes the entire campground area. I hope you find it helpful. Additionally, here is a basic overview of pros and cons:

Pros:

  1. All sites close to the bathhouse
  2. Most sites with full hook up including sewer and 30/50 amp plugs. (see pics)
  3. Multiple updated playgrounds
  4. Very affordable. $24 a night for a full hook up site.
  5. Very walkable. Small campground with access to amenities by foot.
  6. Disc golf course is very fun. It is has an interesting layout in the woods so it is much like a hike.
  7. The park is near Tupelo, MS and there is a Dollar General right at the entrance to the park.
  8. If you are primitive camping, the tent camping area is outstanding. (see pic) There are picnic tables, elevated tent platforms, places for hammocks, a porch swing and bench around a raised fire pit. If you are primitive camping, it is a great place.
  9. There are several docks for fishing and there were signs for the option of boating with a trolling motor, but no one was boating while we were there.
  10. The park office was not open while we were here, but it did look updated
  11. Great for young kids because the campground is small with a flat loop that is easy for bike riding, skating, or scooters. It is easy to see the kids from your campsite and not worry about them getting lost
  12. frequent monitoring by the park rangers. Appears that this park is very well taken care of.

Cons:

  1. Absolutely no shade on the playground.
  2. Inside loop spots are mostly close together. very little privacy.
  3. We were not able to view the inside of the bathhouse.
  4. only 20 sites and only 4 tent camping areas and were without water or electric.
  5. No SP swag so no stickers, patches, shirts, etc.

This is an A+ for the price, amenities and location to our home base of Memphis. We will definitely be back.
