Lake Mike Conner was our fist choice when we took our new to us camper out for the first time. We had a great weekend stay, met a lot of nice people and saw a lot of people we already knew. This is a lake that is very close to us. Seeing people I knew made me relax and enjoy my stay even more. It was clean and spacious, but nothing fancy, for us it was all about getting away from it all! And that's what we did. - Judy & Jr

Staff at hotel not helpful during check in.
Park in bad shape, unlevel lots, pedestals leaning over, poor to no lighting.
Copied drivers license and credit card to keep on file in spite of objection.
Save yourself some trouble and find another park! - RevLaughlin

Don"t go here especially if you are over 36ft. and towing. Sites just cut out in some woods on top of a hill above motel and low end apts. Be careful or you will scrape going in and out. If you make a wrong turn going into motel you are in trouble. Had to check in a motel, no office, clerk said to just go to top of hill and turn into park. No assigned spaces, finally had to get out of coach and wander around trees to find the last pull through. No amenities, no nothing, never again. - nathans

It is located off US 49 about a mile south of it's intersection with Main Street, behind the Best Western. Check in is at the Best Western and the campground is maybe 1/4 mile up the hill and behind trees. This location makes for very tolerable traffic noise. You can walk down to the Burger King, Huddle Restaurant or a Catfish place. Spacious sites under tall pine trees. - Seawolf

This rustic public park is located about four or so country miles off of US 49. Well marked on US 49, smaller signs lead to the park. Roads are narrow and some turns can be sharp, thus my questionable review on big rig access. However, there is little traffic, and there were 5ths in the park. We arrived late, set up in the dark. Morning light revealed an open lawn pine tree setting near a lake. Apparently, all sites are FHU. Utilities were fine. PVC sewer connects come out of the ground at a 30 degree angle, making the connect with the hose at risk of causing a spill. Site pads were chopped up by a ditch witch when electrical was upgraded, leaving unpaved trenches across the pad. Not all sites were level by any means, some had steep dropoffs to the picnic table. Primitive dump station was a PVC pipe, a screw on cap, and a potable hose connect about 20 feet away with no hose, all on bare ground. Never saw that before. Bath house doors propped open all night with the lights on, which attracted a large number of mid-summer insects, thus the unclean bathroom rating. Small, insignificant swing set for kids. An off road bicycle trail is available. CSpire phone was 4 bar 3G. DTV scanning picked up 40 channels. Manager was met at the entry gate in the morning, friendly fellow. Only 5 campers in the park, including us. Appears to be primarily a weekend local fishing spot. Overall, a very rustic feel with some significant site upgrades needed to the pavement and leveling. The high ratings by previous reviewers drew us to the park, but I can rank this CG barely average with a 4 compared to other high scoring locations. This is no 8-10. When in the area again, we would opt for someplace else, probably over to Bassfield. - The Happy Traveler

This park is five miles off of 49. It is very quiet and peaceful with 28 sites. They have just finished up grading the electrical system. Lots of trees and plenty of space between sites. The pads are blacktop, some do need attention. They are in the middle of adding more sewer hook ups, so all most all site now have this. The road in can be narrow at times, but passable. The park people we dealt with were first class. This park is not used a lot, seems lost to the traveling RV'er. We were here this Labor day week end and there were only three of us in the entire park. The bad is we had no cell service, but that was good in a way. We will be back. Should have wonderful fall colors and spring colors here. - Frank Henn

We loved this quiet, rural County (or State, not sure which) Park. The price quoted was based on Passport America rate. This park also had laundry facilities, which is rare in municipal parks (we've found). Lovely walking trails and a lovely huge large. The only negative was we were not able to get satellite reception because of all the gorgeous trees. We would most definitely return here. - tpw0607

Despite having "water park" in its name, this is not a commercial park. It is operated by a Mississippi water authority governmental agency. Beautiful tall pines fill the campground and surround a nice, clean lake. We visited in the off-season, but certainly this is a destination for water recreation in the warm months. The park is conveniently located about 10 minutes from Laurel. Sites are spacious, shady, and convenient to the water. Facilities and grounds were very well kept. We had full LTE cell service (AT&T). This is a great spot for a sleep-and-go or as a longer getaway. We would definitely stay here again. We stayed one night in site #39, a pull thru site with full hook ups. - texasAUtiger

We stayed just one night in a 40 foot fifth wheel. We don't typically rate overnight stops but this one is special. This is one of eight water parks that are part of the Pat Harrison Waterway System. The sites were full hookup, 50 amp, large level sites, in a great location with a great view. We were here in the fall and the weather was cold with a significant freeze coming. The park was nearly deserted but it looks like the kind of place that would be hopping during the summer time. The park is very well maintained and simply beautiful. I would definitely stay here longer if plans allowed. Sorry but too cold and rainy for photos. You might prefer a back-in site as they too had plenty of room. The pull thru sites in this loop had patios that faced the road which I am not at all fond of. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Roads paved a bit tight in a few places. Sites: paved with 20/30/50 amp power, water and sewer. Mostly level but maybe at extremes of leveling system. Note on sewer - pay attention to location of sewer when positioning your rig. I had to use 2 hoses and back up 15' to reach the connection. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Showers had good pressure and plenty of hot water. Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine. No CG wifi. Host helpful and friendly. Reservations are made by phone only. It has a nice little lake for paddling around in and allows water skiing and jet skies. Nice quiet park with good facilities. We'd stay here again. - pumper9x9

This is a small RV park with very nice owners. They were very helpful. There is 1 washer and 1 dryer but no showers or toilets. We were in a 40 ft 5th wheel in a site that accommodated our trailer and large truck with 8 ft bed. Our site included full hook-ups (water, power, sewer). Picnic tables are provided but ours was in poor shape and should be replaced; we did not use it. We stayed one week at this location while we were visiting friends in Collins, MS. There were a few long term clients who kept their sites clean and tidy. The location was very quiet. - Sheilas Reviews

Loved the setting of this campground even though it was a little ways off the main road but that's what made it so nice. Although we loved the campground and it's scenery with the ponds, trees and ducks, we weren't real thrilled with our site (62). Gravel with no grass, table or fire pit. If we had stayed longer than 1 night we would have been very disappointed. Staff was friendly and met us as we pulled in. Being a nature lover and photographer, I enjoyed the nature scenery and walk around the ponds. The ducks walking around were also entertaining. We did not use any of the facilities: pool, laundry or restrooms but they appeared to be in decent shape. - BigRigFriendly

About five miles out of the way, but the drive is worth it for the beautiful lake nestled among the trees that allows fishing and swimming. Sites are not well-maintained but certainly adequate. Huge dog park, and new washers and dryers in laundry room. - Scldg

Read the previous reviews and decided to give this campground a try. We're so glad we did. We stayed 2 nights on our way west. Previous posts fretted over the narrow rural roads but we had no issues in our 44 foot motorhome. The utilities are at the very back of the site, necessitating a water hose and electric cable long enough to reach the back of your rig. The sewer inlet is also at the back of the site. Make sure you have enough sewer hose with you to reach the back of your rig. The roads in are rural and more narrow than many folks are used to, but when we met 2 pickups and 3 cars coming in, they all moved over to the shoulder and let us pass easily. The campground roads are all dirt and gravel and easily traveled. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and put us in a site with no other rigs on either side of us. They were also very agreeable to allowing us a site that was open so we could use our satellite. The sites are all back-ins, and there is no planting or separation between sites, just gravel and dirt. All at this park were extremely friendly, and the quiet and serene surroundings by the lake was just what we needed. I'd definitely stay here again, should we be in the neighborhood - glenstmary

This gentleman was the gracious host and owner of the stables/camping area near the Longleaf Trace. Just 5 back-in sites near the barn and next to a pasture with goats and horses. We were the only ones here. It would have been a tight fit for our small 5th wheel if there were other RV's present. I can't say that it's "big rig friendly," but from my understanding, the sites aren't used very much.
It was great for us because we were here to ride bikes on the Longleaf Trace, which is only a couple of blocks away. Very beautiful and quiet here. You'll most likely have the place to yourself - nice! - LatLongJohn

We returned to this campground so we could ride our trikes on the Longleaf Trace. Not much has changed since our last visit, except that the pleasant and helpful owner and his son are now raising goats, so campers can expect to see plenty of goats, horses, miniature horses, and a braying donkey. Unless one is animal-phobic, they are a lot of fun; bring old bread for treats. The beagles have moved down the road. The sites are tight and a couple of them were damp after the recent rains. We have not seen another camper when we were there, and odds are you would be the only one when visiting. FHU included in rate shown. Some of the cable TV wires have pulled out of their jacks, so there was no cable but OTA reception was good. Good cell and data coverage. Any time we're in the area and want to ride the trace, we'll stay here. - Jay Rutherford

A small private campground providing stable services for equestrian activities and bicycling along the 46 mile long Longleaf Trace Rail Trail. Owner is quite friendly and knowledgeable about the area and Longleaf Trace. Campground consists of five sites dedicated to RVing, and four sites for tents. Each of the five RV sites is FHU. Utilities worked fine. RV sites are grassy and tent sites are gravel. We had to use one set of levelers on the utility side of the camper. Access is snug in sites 3-5 due to small back-in turning radii. I believe a large trailer, fifth wheeler, and motor home could maneuver only into site 1 or site 2. Owner said he rarely gets more than three RVs at a time. Quiet. About two blocks off of MS 52. There are some friendly horses there, but if you are a kid and not bicycling with parents on the Trace, there is really nothing to do. There was a healthy population of non-biting black ants. A scout had found its way in by the next afternoon. Check-out time was whenever, in other words, enjoy life. Cash only. CSpire phone service was 5 bars and 3G. DTV had all five networks and independents, excellent over the air signals. CATV connect was on the water post, but it had no signal. No Wi-Fi, so we used our phones. For bicycling, the Longleaf Trace is one of the nicest trails in the South. We rode from Bassfield to Prentiss and back in July! Lots of water stops on the Trace. We would definitely return to this campground to serve as a base camp for riding the remainder of the Trace. - The Happy Traveler

Perfect for an overnight just north of Hattiesburg. Lots of long term but mostly well maintained. Easily accessible with our 40' fiver and extra vehicle. Staff friendly and accommodating. Didn't use facilities but everything wit our site worked just fine. We did not connect to cable so we can't say how good that was. WiFi was typical for a campground. Basic internet access. Perfect for our needs. Cute country store nearby. - jnlo

We stayed at Shady Cove for an extended period of time. We are full-timers so we are in a lot of RV Parks. We found the manager and her husband unfriendly and almost confrontational and defensive with simple questions, although they did have fairly good availability by cell phone. The 50 amp service fried our electric cord and we had to get a new one as soon as we pulled out (that was when we found it when we unhooked, thankful it had not caused a fire). The park was not well-maintained with the grass often growing to our knees before it would be mowed. The wi-fi was not usable. The cable TV was good with approximately 30 channels. The showers and bathroom appeared to not be cleaned daily. We did not use the laundry facility to rate it. The lighting is minimal so we stayed in anytime after dark. There are only dirt roads and the sites do not even have gravel (just dirt), so when it rained we were buried in mud. The owner seems to be more accommodating to the numerous long-timers in the park that have full sites of 'stuff' so it is obvious they are not going anywhere (less than tidy), rather than RVers. This was one of the worst RV Parks we have ever stayed in and would not recommend it or return. - Keep It Simple

We stopped at the Shady Cove RV Park for one night and the park owners were very nice and accommodating allowing for easy after hours check in. The sites were gravel and level, the gravel area outside of the parking pad was a little on the muddy side. The trails were plentiful for walking the dogs although they were quite wet. Water, sewer, and 50 amp hook ups were very nice. The cable connection was very strong with over 40 channels. We did not have a code to access the bathhouses but the surrounding area was clean and well kept. - T Nation
