This is no longer the great little fishing park with the quaint cabins, and campsites nestled in the woods. This park has been turned into an AMUSEMENT PARK! No sleep, so refunds, no supervision of children on golf carts with loud music everywhere. There was an ATV running the streets as well even though the management says they don't allow them. There is a zip line now installed over the dam spillway, right beside the campground. Poor planning! This is a dry county, but a private park even though some land was taken by eminent domain. Drinking and drunks are abundant here, including some of the management. There was an event here one of the weekends we stayed, which was very ill planned. Too many people, not enough management or security, and once again not far enough away from the campground and cabins so we could enjoy the quiet (though there was none to be had really). Fishing used to be great here, no longer. And we were told that there was an $8 per fish charge for each caught in addition to the normal fees for fishing. After hearing that, we stopped. Too many speed boats in the shallow lake anyway. And the prices have risen dramatically! At $28 per night, and being the highest cost park in the area, there are many local alternatives, most being much better campgrounds as well. While here, there seemed to be a big upheaval in personnel, which we were told has been the case since the new management took over. Seems like the new management is nickel and diming the campers too much as well. There were lots of complaints from other campers around us, who were also looking for a refund and an opportunity to find another park. Just not a good atmosphere anymore! And certainly no place to take young children! We camped at Little Black Creek Water Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice owners and staff who will accommodate your needs if at all possible. Nice long term sites with shade, some waterfront, several fishing ponds, swimming pool, and hot tub. Nice clubhouse with game room and billiard table, book exchange, camp store well stocked with basics and reasonably priced.
Fresh local eggs and produce available on site or nearby. Cabins available and what we saw were very cute and comfortably furnished. There are gravel roads which are well kept and leveled after every rain, but can be bumpy during a rainstorm. This park is very well cared for as are its residents. This parks does not tolerate drugs, guns, rude or violent campers, or loose pets. This park is more of a resort type which does not cater to the bad elements. But it is a great place for well behaved campers and families to vacation, camp and party. And it is a welcoming home base for the long term camper or fulltimer. We camped at Okatoma Resort & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Electric & water problems which caused damage to RV equipment; broken car & RV windows caused by lawn service (the only damage that was reimbursed). Wi-Fi never works; dirt site not level and needed constant adjustments; 6” of water pooled at front door when it rained (every afternoon in summer). Damage to outdoor items when owners cut down a tree which fell 3 ft from our RV. MANY undesirables with ragged shower curtain tents and ragged RVs that are no longer fully functioning. Caters to the poor, disabled and those feigning disability (quite a few). Mississippi is an open carry state so owners shot neighborhood cats next to our RV; owners were shooting blindly into woods after report of trespasser rather calling police; owners and some residents have guns strapped on their waist and use for almost ANY reason. One long term camper with a body and paint shop inside a tent. No amenities, but cheap. Owners not responsive to complaints, and will not reimburse damage voluntarily. Just not what we would consider a safe place to park for any length of time. We camped at Eagle Nest RV Park in a Motorhome.
