Overall, we love this campground that sits perched on a woodsy hill overlooking Grenada Lake in central Mississippi. The campground is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and has provided a restful respite every time we have stopped there (which is actually only twice). It is located about 10 minutes off I-55 but is well worth the time to be at this relaxing campground.
|Our site #22 was super long and level (as are 99% of the sites). Unfortunately, the lake water level was way down so the brown you see behind the motorhome in the picture is dried lake bed. Bummer!|
The campground has 88 sites adjacent to Grenada Lake. All roads are paved and present no problem for big rigs. All sites are 50/30 amp full hook-up, paved and have picnic tables and fire pits. Some sites are so long you could fit two large motorhomes in there back to back! Sites run the gamut of shady and wooded to open and sunny facing the lake.

Facilities in the campground include a boat launch, playground, and shower/bathroom. Within a short drive is a visitor center, picnic shelters, ball fields, tennis courts, nature trails, and there is plenty of fishing opportunities in and near the campground.
What we really liked about this park is pretty much everything . . . sites are well spaced, there is easy access to the lake/boat launch, numerous hiking trails, sites are paved and full hook-up sites . . . and all this for the cut-rate price of $20/night (unless you have a Golden Age Pass which puts this at a bargain basement price of $10/night). Sweet!
The not so good is the distance from any facilities. The closest town is Grenada and about 5 miles away. But if you plan ahead and want to relax this is not a problem. The downer for us on this visit is that the lake was a mile or so away since the water level was drawn down for dam repairs.
Spirit’s two cents . . . there was plenty of room for her to run and take long walks around the campground and on the trails. Spirit was super bummed that the Grenada Lake was not within reach of our campsite. We stayed here 2 ½ years ago and were able to walk right out our door with our bathing suits on and dipped in the cool water. There is another small lake in one of the campground loops so she did get a little dip.

Hope you all had a wonderful Veteran's Day! Thanks to all those who have served, are serving, and will serve.
