You’ve heard the old saying: “You can run, but you can’t hide.” Well, in deep southern Mississippi, parked across from us at the Natchez State Park were folks from Spokane, Wash., where Jimmy and I lived before we became full-time RVers. Isn’t that part of the fun of RVing–running into people from your old hometown. That, and of course, making new friends. Oh, and I want to add something else–visiting new places and finding a really great camping deal.
That is what we found at Natchez State Park managed by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. Being over 65 (no residency requirement), we only had to pay $15 (plus tax $1.05) for a Standard RV camping site with water and electric.
Natchez State Park has 50 Developed Camping sites, 8 Tent Camping sites, 10 Lakeside Vacation Cabin units, and a Laundry Facility located in the Loop B bathhouse.
The Standard RV camping site features a picnic table, grill, plus water and electrical hook-up for $22/day. Six of the sites also feature sewage hook-ups for $24. A central sewage dumping station and bathhouses with hot showers are located in the developed camping area. Click here for complete regulations and camping fees.
Available in the park are Disc Golf, Picnic Area/Shelter, Children’s Playground, Nature Trail, Freshwater Fishing, and a Boat Launch.
How to get there: We exited off the Parkway, at about milepost 11, and followed park signs. The park can also be reached from US 61 at Staton, Miss., 10 miles north of Natchez.
