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 to say hi and see if we had questions.
We had decent phone service, but slow at times.
Some spots had good shade, some didn’t. Many backed up to the water and none were a far walk from water access either bank or dock.
Only 4 miles from the Natchez Trace. Not sure what amenities are available in nearby Houston, but Pontotoc had plenty of provisions. Not super close, but doable.
The lake itself - muddy brown water and not too much to look at it. But in fairness, it still is winter.
Looked like primarily a fishing lake, but I don’t hold a MS fishing license, so I didn’t try any.
