“Quiet and near the Natchez Trace”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here one night on our way South on the Natchez Trace Trail. We enjoy COE campgrounds because they offer water, friendly office folks, clean, and usually electricity and water.

This park has a lot of trees, but the loop we were in most of the sites, even if they were not on the water had a view of the water.

The pads were a bit narrow and so was the road within the camping loop. So larger trailers may have a harder time backing in.

We didn't have a lot of time to explore the park, but there is a large swimming area that looked lovely and several loops that would be good for biking. You sit above the water, so you would need to go to a boat ramp to launch a canoe or kayak.

“Another superb COE park”

Reviewed Nov 07, 2016

Overall Rating

If you want to get away..and I mean away ......and sit on a peaceful lake and unwind, this is your place. I planned to stay 7 nights here and it turned into 11 because it was so beautiful.
The campground closes on Nov 15 and they were on a walkup system during my stay. They have park volunteers that man the gates and check people in. You go pick your spot and then go pay. During this walkup part of the season, they do NOT take credit cards. You have to pay by check or by cash. They were only about 10% full so I had my pick of spots.

The nearest amenities are a good 40 min drive so you better be ready to kick your feet up and do nothing. The lake side sites could not have been better. Backed up right to the lake. Kayaking was great...the water clean and clear. There's only 1 hiking trail here near the entrance and it's short but there's another state park (Tishomingo) which has plenty of trails. It was about 5 miles.

There is a nice swimming beach for summer times use. They had newer showers and bathhouse for the swimming beach.

Site accessibility (easy to back in, plenty of room, pull throughs also available) - 5
Campground location (Way off the beaten path. Good roads in, lots of hiking at Tishomingo park nearby) - 2
Nearby amenities (Shopping 40 minutes away) - 2
Site Privacy (spacious sites not a lot of privacy though) - 3
Campground amenities (Bathrooms/showers decently clean. Laundry has 2 working washers and 2 working dryers) - 3
Dog friendly (Excellent walking loops and plenty of space) - 5
Activities (Water activities. Swimming beach in summer, basketball courts) - 3
Cost ($24/night for 50 amp W/E hookups) - 4
Staff friendliness (The park volunteers and rangers were extremely nice) - 5
Connectivity (Decent signal w/out a booster for both ATT and Verizon with good download speeds. Terrible OTA. Only 3 channels..all PBS) - 2
Total rating = 3.70
