“Peaceful and nicely spaced sites”

Overall Rating

We picked this campground because of its location to Burnsville Mississippi. We had arranged a tour at the Vanleigh factory. There are three loops each arranged in semi circles. We were the furthest from the entry and were the only one in the loop. A majority of the sites are back in with a few that were pull through. They were varied length of sites to accommodate many sizes of trailers. Since there were no other occupied sites in our Loop, the shower house was locked. Each loop has its own shower house. Husband said the men's rooms were clean.
Check-in was with the host and reservations are required. Reservations can be made online through Tennessee Valley Authority. Check-in was manual, with pen and paper, they have not modernized with computers. The campground is at the base of the dam and it was fun to watch boats and barges lock through the dam.
This was close to some good restaurants; the Outpost was only 1/2 mile away and had great offerings. The Shiloh National Military site and National cemetery was an easy drive.
