Mississippi (MS) camping has something for every adventurer, from the sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast to the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains.
Mississippi River camping is popular all along the west border of Mississippi, especially in the Delta National Forest. Campsites are shaded under hardwood and old-growth forest within the floodplain of the Miss. River. Lake camping is also popular across the state with plenty of natural lakes and reservoirs to set up a campfire next to. Campers are welcome to fish, boat, canoe, and swim in many of these areas. Northern Mississippi offers plenty of upland forest camping in Holly Springs National Forest and Tombigbee National Forest, which sit at the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains.
Southern Mississippi provides wilderness areas in the De Soto National Forest where campers can find secluded sites near densely forested lakes and rivers. The ever popular Gulf Coast offers outdoor lovers a chance for coastal camping along its pristine sandy beaches. RV and camper sites are available as well as basic tent sites in many family-friendly campgrounds. Amenities such as swimming pools, children's playgrounds, and running water are common. Don't forget to check out urban campgrounds near cities like Jackson!
