Beautiful park, very shaded. Nice friendly people. Boat ramp to the Pearl River. Tennis courts. Large pavilion for get togethers. Nice bathrooms. - Woodman601

Very spacious sites. The park is well maintained. Satellite reception is only available from limited sites due to foliage. - GlenO

Camped here to get away from Hurricane Nate. The park itself is pretty, the beach is nice and clean. That's the only nice I have to say about it. The gate attendant was beyond rude and the bathroom and showers at our loop were filthy. I guess they cater to the lakeside campsites. They don't really have sites for rigs longer than 35 but the website will reserve anyway. We asked for a bigger site upon seeing our original one and the attendant was beyond rude. I understand rules but are also rules for having manners also in a public service setting. Won't be back! - csbunz123

Very nice park. Beautiful lake front sites. Some sites were a little on the narrow side, but still plenty of room for our 32' travel trailer. We stayed at site 56. The pad was level, maybe a slight slope towards the lake. There was a drop off off the pad which was my least favorite part of this site. We tripped several times going to and from the lake due to the drop off. Other sites had level ground, we would choose one of them next time.
The proximity to the lake was great! We were able to wake up and fish right from our site. Lake was clean and beautiful. Kids could swim at the beach area and play at the playground. No cell phone service, tall trees blocked the satellite signal.
We will definitely return. - HappycamperJV

No staff on site, but the owner is REALLY laid back and only asked for payment on the day I was leaving. Told me to just drive in whenever I get there and pick whatever spot I can find. Park is all concrete behind a fence. Couldn't reserve in advance, but apparently the park is never full, so I didn't mind. I only parked here for a few days because I was visiting family in town & didn't even stay in the RV when I was parked there, so I can't really give an accurate review. However, I can tell you that while I was parked there, the water line busted underground on my water hook-up for whatever reason. No one saw it, and since I wasn't there, I couldn't verify why. However, the other park residents came to my spot & cleaned it up for me and connected me to another water hook-up...all while I wasn't there. Owner had it fixed the next morning. I would park here again in a heart-beat when I come back into town. 20 bucks daily rate for a full-hookup is hard to beat, even in Brookhaven, MS. - RLT1

We have stayed here a dozen times last five years. Great at first, but has changed. No max stay. Last six months has seen serious changes to the park. Always full with long term trailers. Has changed from an RV park to a long term mobile park with administration only caring about rent payments. Clutter around units is prevalent. Ambiance has changed to trailer park attitude with disregard for property rights, management reflecting drop in expectation for renter attitudes and neatness. Management caring only for rent payments on time. No respect for site integrity and protection. Better options available at nearby State Parks. Really sad to see negative changes in staff attitudes for campers in favor of trailer park trash environment. - Vdsavell

The challenge is finding the park entrance. Using the published directions on the website, as soon as you negotiate the 90 degree curve, turn LEFT into the gate in the chain link fence. The sign is on the gate and small. Sites are paved but all slant a bit. Good hookups, some pull-throughs. Clean shower house. Great for an overnight or two. We would stay again. Not too far from I-55. - Seeingtheusa.com

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

All other campgrounds we stay at enforce a 10:00 quiet time. Not this one! It claims to have a 10:00 quiet time during the weekdays and 12:00 on weekends. What a joke! In fact, I'm at the campgrounds now. It's 1:50 in the morning and I am lying here wide awake. Why? The campsite across from us is blaring music as is another nearby site. People are partying and yelling in all directions. I called the office earlier to ask them to take care of it and they didn't do a thing. It's all about partying here. Too bad because it is actually a nice place along the Pearl River.
Don't be fooled by their "under new management" campaign because the management does not care. Also, our site did not have electricity or fire pit. We had to run electricity from a nearby site. The lots are spacious. The site surface is dirt. This is the last time that we will be here. - Tentx6

The owner was very friendly and accommodating. There is no cable TV and very few spots where a satellite would get a signal. She placed us in a spot where we could get a signal and also near the building where the Wi-Fi router was located. The Wi-Fi signal was weak and kept dropping off. This is truly a campground, not an RV park. There were a few pull-throughs, which are short, and you would still have to unhook. Roads are very narrow, with small branches hanging down. I said all of this as information, not complaining. It is a nice little campground for a family outing. - phaeton31808

We were at the park 4 nights over the January 1st holiday. The park would not honor the Good Sam discount on a Holiday weekend even though they did for 5 others in our group. The trash was only emptied once while we were there and when it rained the spaces were about 6 inches deep and we had to dig trenches to empty out the water. We also consider firewood at $1.00 a stick is too much. We have spent the last 3 New Years and have been there for Easter but most likely won't go back. - Bud Mitchell
