Above is the small pavilion in our lower campground that is for campers only. A large covered picnic pavilion is available for camping groups to rent. Stay in the campground and enjoy the fun games, fellowship, and relax in this peaceful park. Camping clubs may request the use of the small pavilion when making club reservations.

Call 601-437-5911 for information if your camping group needs to rent the large pavilion.

Shower facilities are located close to the lower campground. In July 2005, construction was completed on our new 15' X 30' bath house located in the Upper Campground area. Volunteers and our staff did most of the construction in order to keep within our $45,000 budget. Total cost of the construction was only $19,173. Our thanks to Sons of the Confederans camps that have volunteered their time and supplies for this project. Also special thanks to Steven and Bootsie Gibbens for their doantion of the items needed. Also, campers volunteered their time to help in any way possible. This project could not have been made possible without the dedication of our volunteers and people donating items. Below is are pictures of our new bathhouse. From left to right is the outside, the inside of the women's seeing the shower curtain in the mirror and the last one on the right is the men's.

    

The Laundry room has air conditioning and heat with coin operated washing machines and dryers for our campers only. The campers phone is also located in this room. It is large enough that many of our camping groups enjoy food, fun and fellowship.

You can call our office at (601) 437-5911 for information.

Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts enjoy camping and working on badges. Many work on community service hours while at the park. Scouts have built an amphitheater in our Boy Scout camping area, benches in the park, a walking trail, and many come in to pick up limbs or clean up present hiking trails. Many scout leaders remember the 14 mile hiking trail once at the park. The hiking trail ended because part of it was on private land and the other is now on nuclear plant property. Hiking trails within the park are short, however they can be combined to make for hikes from 2 miles up to 5 miles.
