This park is well maintained with clean bathrooms and RV lots. Our grill was rusted and had fallen over. When I reported it they came within an hour and replaced it with a new one. Wish we had longer to stay.

A very nice park. The lake is very pretty. Not to far out of Hattiesburg. Good place for a picnic or to relax.

Went to Paul B. for an afternoon picnic and enjoyed it immensely. It was not crowded and a trembly clean and well kept. The view of the lake was picturesque and the water was calm even with a gentle breeze through the pines. Totally enjoyable.

I went for my birthday with my adult family. We stayed in the cabins. I already knew this was not a luxury hotel, so I was not disappointed. It actually exceeded my expectations. The cabin was a two bedroom cabin, bath, kitchen, and family area....More

Yes, dogs are allowed in the park - they must be on leash !! I am not sure if the dogs are allowed in the swimming area.
