Very Nice
The park is in the process of rebuilding from natural events, i.e., tornadoes and storms. Stopped here and tent camped during a cross-country trip, and it was great. No crowds, the camp host is the most friendly I have encountered. I came back to Chewalla on return from Florida and rested for another couple of days, and I found many improvements in campgrounds since the visit 3 weeks earlier.

Don’t Stop Here!
The day use boat and bathrooms were all closed to ongoing vandalism. Place was very unkept and creepy. Even though we were exhausted and had prepaid we left.

First Appearances...
The road in is rough and entrance sign said the park is closed. The sign was wrong and recreation.gov was right: the restrooms were closed "due to covid-19" and camping was open only to self- contained RVs (no tents). There was only one camper when I arrived on a weeknight in April (and no attendants) but the few sites with water and electric filled quickly. The basic sites are pretty rough. There is a lake for fishing, not much else. Needs maintenance.

On the Rough Side But Quite
If you’re self contained its ok; $7 no service sites are the way to go. Bathroom and shower facilities really need cleaning, and trashy folks need to learn to pack it out. Camp ground needs TLC, it could be very nice with a little caring. Nice lake.

Updating But Needs Maintenance
We found a great campsite #41 near the shower house, recently level wit gravel. only one shower out of 4 was able to be used, so ,we opted to use ours, no toilet paper in all but one stall. So we took advantage of the dump station

Nice, Quiet Place At A Great Price
Tucked away off I22, had no problem fitting my 45-foot Seismic into the campsite. Good water pressure. 30 amp power. Great trails and you can see the Stars at night. Only downside is no sewage hookup. There is a dump station, but you will be filling your holding thanks at this one. Consider using the communal showers and toilets to stretch times between having to dump.

Nice secluded campground. Was a little ran down. Needed some cleaning and upkeep and would have been very nice.

Basic Campground
Basic road in, basic signage, basic sites and basic bathrooms. The sites are tucked in under pines and dogwood, away from the lake, where the day use areas are. It was breezy during our stay, so twigs and needles dropped on the roof. There are tables, grills, fire rings as well as 30 amp and water. No sewer, but there is a dump station. The toilets are out front (separate men/women) and individual shower rooms out back of the block....no hooks for hanging clothing  :-(  ! No laundry here.There are only 10 hookup sites, but many more tent sites. The rv sites are tight, but well spaced apart. 40ish ft max; no pull thrus. A basic campground. There are many better parks, both state and federal, around the Tupelo district.
