I agree with all the previous reviews here and am sad to say the the bathroom situation is still the same, if not worse, as reported nearly a year ago. One bathhouse boarded up. The only bathhouse open has no electricity (i.e. no lights, hand dryers or ventilation fans). The urinal is still broken in the men's room with caution ta... more

We stayed here while driving the Trace. Decent 20+ miles to Vicksburg. Hubby says bathrooms, at visitor center and one that was open were clean, no hot water but toilet paper. Paved variety of large sites include picnic table, fire pot and charcoal grill. Very quiet and dark at night. Lots of bird and night animal sounds. We enjoyed so... more

It was just repaved when we stayed for 3 nights in nov 2017. Can't beat the price, didn't visit the on site bathhouse. If you go up the road to the trail head for the ghost town you can get a little bit of verizon data if needed if you have a booster it's a good spot also.

OK, we did stay 5 days but that was our plan (really 6 days) and we stick to our plan! Maybe. Previous reviews were pretty "spot-on" with their descriptions of the campground, bathroom(s) and the overall appeal of this place. "IF" this (alleged) camp-host was working, we never saw it. He did work on a van while we were there but I'm no... more

“Barely adequate”

Reviewed Mar 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Although the sites have been recently repaved, there is much work needed at this campground. One bathroom is boarded up and the others should be boarded up as well. They were dirty, a toilet clogged and a urinal broken. The grounds around the campground needed a lot of attention and there was no water. It appears that there is a camp ... more

“Price is right”

Reviewed May 26, 2017

Overall Rating

It is a bit run down, but the price fits. We only stayed a single night on our way up the Parkway. I agree with the other reviewer that the upper portion is in better shape. No cell to speak of. From the campground a trail leads to the site of the old Rocky Springs ghost town (not much there but a good dog walk).

We stayed on Easter weekend, so there was a lot of day users there. No cell phone service, no hook ups. We dry camped and really enjoyed ourselves. Stayed at a handicapped site cause Mom was travelling with us.

“Free but needs some TLC”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2017

We pulled in at 5:30 PM in late March and only a few sites were left on a Friday night. The upper part of the loop is nicer, more private and further from the road than the lower loop. The bathroom in the upper part of the loop is no longer operational and needs to be torn down. The pads are in rough shape, very uneven and everything... more
