  • This place was amazing! I loved it from start to finish. We got a wonderful campsite (basic #49) and pitched our tent in a little spot surrounded by trees. Water access was right across the road, primitive bathrooms nearby, Trail Head and Shower House just a short walk down the road. We loved our hike (covered in spider webs though) and debated the swimming beach before heading back to camp. We drank wine and lit a fire, feasted on hot dogs and smores, all before climbing into our tent and sleeping under the stars. There was a nighttime wildlife visitor but whatever it was left us alone . I do recommend lots of bug spray.
  • This was a nice stop. We didn't stay long but the conservation agent stationed there was helpful. It has a mini-museum that is fun to walk though and learn about the Trail of Tears.
  • Great place for many different reasons. Camping, hiking, backpack camping, fishing, sightseeing, educational, swimming (not in the Mississippi), and much more. We love to hike here. The trails are well managed and somewhat challenging ...especially for flatlanders ;)
  • The park is nice and the camping areas are big but there are train tracks the run right next to the "electric" camp ground and had trains coming through just about every hour so we got absolutely no sleep. I wouldn't recommend trying to sleep there.
  • We camped . Nice camp ground. Clean. Showers and real bathrooms. Quite
