Beautiful inexpensive place to take the family for a day swimming. You have to remember that you're swimming in a lake and the ground is a little squishy when you first get in, but if you walk in just a few feet it's very nice. There are often boats on the lake and provide just enough waves for the kids... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin. The cabin was very clean & inviting. Our grandson had a blast fishing from the pier in the backyard. There were also places to swim, a playground, & a splash pad. The only thing I would do differently is to bring a foam topper for the beds. The mattresses are fairly hard. We... More

We overnighted at this campground while traveling from Texas to New Jersey, so this review is limited to only the campground. We did not use any of the other recreational activites available at this park.. The park was about 20 miles from I-59, the interstate going through Hattiesburg, but it was easy enough to get to and find. A site-specific... More

We camp here frequently. It's the best, most inexpensive campground around. The bathhouses are much better than other places we've been. They are usually clean and stocked. The lake is nice for swimming. The entire place is peaceful.

Great place to chill or camp for a night but it could do with a few more facilities for the evening.

The workers are the rudest people I have ever talked to. I have never received worse customer service in my life. If you hate your job, your life, and people so damn much, you do not need a job where human interaction is a daily task you must face. Learn some manners or go home Paul B
