Great place to bring your family any friends for fun in the sun and you can grill. They have nature walks that couples and kids will enjoy

Love the location of the camper spots to the beach! The bathhouses are also great! A great place for skiing and kneeboarding!

It was awesome. So many decorate & ho all out for the trick or treaters. My grand-daughter & niece came & stayed with us &... More

Stopped here on our way south. Beautiful, peaceful park. We were offered and took a pull-through site which are very narrow. Wish we had taken a site on the lake. It was off season so not crowded.

It's close to Hattiesburg if you need to get into a city for some reason, but far enough away that you can forget about city noise. We did hear I 59... More

This is one of the most beautiful settings I have seen for a state park campground. Campsites here are very nice and you can find anything from Primitive campsites to full hook ups with 50 amp service. So many amenities offered at this location. The one negative, and it needs fixing is the lack of adequate bathroom and shower facilities.... More

This park is well cared for and a great place to bring your pop up or travel trailers or rent a cabin for around $70 a night. You can park by the lake or in a more wooded area. They also have primitive camping sites.

Enjoyable & clean campground, with lots of space to set up our tents, etc. The kids loved it & there was enough to do (fishing, playgrounds, etc) to keep everyone happy for the weekend. They even have a nice splashpad for the kids (which was still open in mid-October, btw). I assumed it would have already been closed, so we... More
