River Town Campground is very conveniently located on Old Highway 61 just south of Vicksburg. Most GPS systems will send the camper through a residential subdivision to avoid making a U-turn on Highway 61, but that's not necessary as the U-turn is easily made on this highway.

River Town doesn't accept reservations on-line, so call ahead to make reservations -- no deposit is necessary. Just pay upon arrival. I paid $28 per night, which includes an AAA discount. In August, there were plenty of empty sites (it's HOT in Mississippi during August).

The campground has approximately 150 sites, and the majority of those are for permanent residents that park around the perimeter of the grounds. The park is very quiet, no barking dogs or loud vehicles. The campground is well maintained, clean, and mowed frequently. Each site has full hook-ups. The hook-ups are located at the rear of each site, which was fine for my little teardrop camper, but it might be a problem for large rigs because they would need long hoses. Each site has a picnic table, but no other amenities. I disposed of my trash at the dumpster near the office, but the permanent folks put their trash bags at the edge of their sites, and it is picked up by management around 7 a.m.

There is a small swimming pool, suitable for children (but not for adults who want to swim laps), and a playground. This area is clean. The shower house is clean with 3 showers and 3 toilets (in the ladies' side). There is also a laundry room in the same building as the office, but I didn't check it out.

My iPhone 6 had one or two bars most of the time; that usually dropped to no bars from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. each day. A sign in the office notes the park does NOT have cable.
