A large recreational area, dominated by some magnificent lakes. There is no Elvis centre to the campground - he is reported to have played with his mates around there as a boy. There is a good road in and out. Pull offs for the campers...More

stopped by for the name. We were going to camp for a night but the camp site is full of old RVs and old people living here (I wonder if they ever pay for the RV spot). It seems like the entire camp site is...More

Rebuilt after a tornado flattened the entire landscape. If you've never seen this it's a great opportunity to get an idea of what a tornado can do. Also a pretty place to take kids fishing.

We went on a weekday, before the end of the school holidays and it was empty - no one there. Drove right up the little promontory, down to the pier decking and basked in the sun. Perfectly peaceful and plain gorgeous views over the lake....More

Somebody who gets paid to manage this place should grab a trash bag and hit the trail (or hit the bricks and find a new gig)! Nice park but unforgivable site conditions with bottles and cans, butts and paper plates piled in and around the...More

Nice lake, nice campgrounds, but if you ban swimming at a lake, why bother camping? I mean, whenever we camp we swim, and this is Mississippi where it's hotter than Hades, yet they banned swimming because, they said there were too many people getting drunk...More
