‪Felt more like a city park than anything. The camping area was not secured from the public area except by a low gate. People were parking in the public parking and then simply climbing over the low barriers to come and fish right at people’s camping spot.

We ended up using their website to see unreserved sites and moving because some random locals decided that the portion of the lake at the edge of our camping spot was the perfect fishing spot – loud conversations, music and all. It was strange and uncomfortable in our reserved spot; however, once we moved it was much better.

There are lots of bright lights and it did not really feel like real camping at all. It felt more like camping in the back yard.

I would recommend sites 41 or lower to get away from the people fishing all night.

Only 1 bathroom open.‬

‪Nice view. Everything else is crap.

The ranger doesn't exist.

Bathrooms and showers on our side are closed despite it being spring break and sold out.

Distance to electric and water hookups is ridiculous and required two fifty foot water hoses and two rv extension cords, the three items together can be purchased from Walmart in town for about $150 dollars.

Entire campground subject to unexpected flooding due to being in the spillway of the dam so you have to be prepared for that at all times. There's no warning that this could happen other than old timers and seasonals that know and tell campers.

My campsite was ponding for about twelve hours.

There's no trash dumpster except at the exit.

Obviously no maintenance is done. There's a hole where the sanitary basket should be in the ladies room (the one a quarter mile from my campsite, that was open).

No ranger to enforce the quiet hours or anything approaching law here.

They don't mow, there's thigh-high daisies growing as you come into the camping area.

You can't Google maps this campground and there's little to no signage.‬

‪I do not write many reviews. The ratings for this state park are completely incorrect. I plan to only present what I experienced.

SIGNAGE: Directional signs to the state park were scarce. Street name signs and campground entrance signs were non-existent. The sites are marked, but the directional signs within the park were poor.

CHECK-IN/CAMP STORE: Not every state park requires a physical check-in. Not every state park has a camp store. Near the entry of this campground is a structure. It may serve as a check-in point, but it is unclear. It appears to be abandoned. No one was present upon my arrival on Monday afternoon. And I never saw this structure occupied during our two day stay.

SITE MARKERS/PAPERWORK: Every state park that I have visited has a site marker and a clip of some-sort to hold the information about the occupant and their length of stay. These sites are marked. The clips are present. I had no paperwork. Very few of the other campers had paperwork, but some did.

HOSTS: Every state park that I have visited has had Campground Hosts. Their sites are usually marked with a placard that says "Host." This is not the case at this state park. There were three occupied sites that displayed vertical "Welcome" signs. I guessed that these were the hosts. I approached two of the sites, but no one was physically there. And I never noticed physical activity at these two sites during my stay.

PATROLS: The campground was approximately less than 1/4 full. There were people that constantly drove through the campground on golf carts. If I had taken the time to record the trips, I would guess that someone drove past our sites every 15 to 20 minutes. These carts were not marked as DNR or State Parks. The occupants did not appear to have any insignia or badges.

FIREWOOD: It varies from state to state regarding the rules for burning dead wood from the campground. I did stop one of the passing golf carts when I first arrived to the campground and inquired about firewood. The gentleman, though not rude, seemed bothered that I had stopped him to ask such a a mundane question. The woman passenger appeared to be impatient. I was told that whatever was lying on the ground was fair game. The existing deadwood was at either extreme . . .3'0" diameter tree trunks that needed to be split or finger-sized twigs. I was lucky to procure some spit, seasoned firewood from some locals.

ELECTRIC/WATER: An electric post exists for every two camp sites, though there was only one 30A and one 50A plug for the two sites. A water spigot per campsite was also present, though mine was in the middle of a mud bog. Neither the electric post nor the water spigots were close to the parking pad. A 30A extension cord and an additional length of hose were required to utilize the utilities.

CAMP SITES: I lucked out and got two sites that were on a small rise. There were several sites that were lower and were dirtier and collected more silt. There were many sites that were moss covered and uninhabitable.

LANDSCAPING: There was trash (bottles, glow-sticks, paper, cigarette packs, dip tines, and a dead squirrel) littered about our sites and throughout the campground. What little grass existed was ankle tall and needed to be mowed. The natural stone fire pits were full of ash and debris. And depending on which site, the concrete picnic tables could be buried up the bench seats in silt.

COMFORT STATIONS: One was padlocked closed. Another had caution tape about it. From the outside, neither station appeared to be sanitary or in working order.

GENERAL COMMENTS: The west half of the campground was closed. There was a new wooden fence across the road to keep people out. The fence was the newest item in the campground. Several trucks were seen going through the gate, into the west campground, but their purpose was never determined.

The campground is located on the north side of the reservoir's spillway. On the south side is a state picnic park. The picnic park and areas surrounding the campground were all well maintained. There was just no love for the campground itself.

There is a campground located at the north end of the dam. It is called North Abutment Campground and can be seen on recreation.gov. This appears to be a much cleaner, nicer, hospitable campground than Hugh White State Park.

PERSONAL COMMENTS: I was never threatened or accosted, but I never felt comfortable. I felt as though I was intruding and under surveillance. This could be a nice campground if it were to receive some TLC. There may be issues that I am unaware of - it may flood, it may be scheduled for future renovations. However, as advertised and my experience were worlds apart. I would not recommend this state park campground to anyone for any reason.‬

‪What a nasty mess! Downed trees and debris everywhere. Site was in a great location but the hookups may as well have not existed. You need an extra long cord to hook up to power. We were moved to another site by a very rude man in a golf cart. We had power but our water hookup was being used by another camper. Filthy surroundings. We were so disappointed after reserving our site through reserveamerica. We expected a decent place to camp. Lost our money but lesson learned.‬

‪Father’s Day weekend. First we were lost because the signs did not include anything about RV or Campers so we followed it up the visitors center. There the lady told us we had to turn around and drive for 15 minutes back and we would arrive. After fighting traffic getting ready from that nights firework show and moving barricades that were blocking the turn around area and then having to turn around a 36 foot bumper pull and long wheel base crew cab 2500 at 2 dead end roads (one for water and one on Girl Scout road) we went back and where we needed to be was a few 100 yards down the road and down the hill past the visitors center we initially went to...WTF (so employee had no clue and cost us an hour and by the time we arrived it was now dark). Found camping spot and noticed the place was packed, no big deal but most parks of this type do not allow more than 3 vehicles per site but these had up to 6 and were blocking the toad. Finally backed up camper and noticed the electrical it on the “drivers side” of the camper because 2 sites share a pole. So our 50 foot cord did not reach. Drove all the way back in town to the Walmart. By this time the kids and dogs and wife were hungry, tired and had to use restroom. Walmart only had 110 cords and were sold out of any low gauge ones so bought what they had. Went back to camper and hooked up power and tried to sleep. 110 ran a/c but kept tripping. But that was not the bad part!! About every 35 minutes kids on golf carts with big speakers kept passing and even worse some kids in a truck kept driving through the camping area and for some dumb reason kept honking their vehicle horn!!! Sunrise and went to walk the dogs and with sunlight we saw we were camping in a hell hole. We were next to a very stagnant pond/swamp so as soon as we open the door a barrage of mosquitoes attacked us. Site smelled bad and had wood debris, broken glass beer bottles, old metal rusted grilling tools and garbage all around the site. Site was very dusty and allowing people to park in the grass did not help. Knowing we could not get our money back we cut our losses and left. This was the nastiest, worst Managed (no rule enforcement at all) and least maintained park we have ver been to in MS, LA, AL, AR, and TN.‬

‪The facilities are dated but in pretty good shape. The location is fabulous - right on the lake and next door to the public golf course. A trip here is like going back to another era - simple relaxation and low key surroundings‬

‪Beautiful shaded picnic area for those that enjoy a good lazy day picnic and is close to Grenada Lake for swimming, fishing or skiing.‬

‪Great fishing and great spot we had in the park. The bathroom were clean. With spring coming up, the grass needed to be cut but our campsite was still nice being next to them dam and being able to fish.‬
