Timberlake Campground
Brandon, Mississippi

Timberlake site

Rating: 5/5
Site details: Mostly back-in sites, some pull-through in the front section. Full hook-ups (30/50 Amp) at all sites
New concrete pads, friendly residents and staff, convenient to stores and restaurants
Cons: a little pricey for the area ($25/night off water, $30/night on the water), poor WiFi signal, reservations required on holidays and some weekends to ensure a spot – all others are first-come first-serve.

Overall, this is a great place to stay for one night or for 2 weeks! This is our favorite place to park when we visit home, and we have stayed in all sections of the park (except monthly rental, of course!), but the water sites are our favorite.


Mississippi Petrified Forest
Flora, Mississippi

Rating: 3/5
Site details: Small campground with back-in and pull-through sites. Full hook-ups (30/50 Amp) at each site but only 5 or so sites are truly big rig friendly.
Friendly and helpful staff (they called the electrician right away to fix our electrical box in the rain!), secluded and quiet, good price ($22/night or $119/week)
Cons: all sites are gravel and dirt, difficult to maneuver through campground with large RV, basic needs located close-by but far from a larger town

We enjoyed camping at this site for a week, and it was nice being close to Russell’s parents’ house! The location and atmosphere gives this place a “roughing it” feel, although I loved the quietness at night. However, there is only a handful of sites that our rig will easily fit in, so our future stays will be determined by availability of particular sites.
