  • Beautiful park... Real woodsy feel.. Nice lake with good bass fishing... Minutes from I-20... Nice, friendly staff.. Views of the lake from most camp sites.. Primitive camping for the hard core guys... We love this spot... Highly recommend if you arw traveling I-20 thru Mississippi..
  • God bless this place!!! We highly recommended this Mississippi Gemstone! We had just pulled in and my 75 yr old mom tumbled down a heal! We had to get help, and that’s just what they did was took care of us! Mom was rushed to Jackson hospital and was in critical condition for a couple of weeks! We stayed at the camp ground and drove to the hospital each day! They totally looked after us! We needed nothing!!! God bless this place!!!!
