Camping in Mississippi

A beautiful, bountiful wilderness covers Mississippi, and there is no better way to experience the wilds than through camping. Hundreds of campgrounds dot our state, ranging from remote areas with primitive campsites to campgrounds that offer a wide range of amenities and creature comforts. And if you prefer the comfort of RV travel, we have plenty of locations waiting for you to plug in and relax, many with full hookups and extras such as Wi-Fi access. Mississippi’s state park system, private campgrounds, and National Forests spread from the Gulf Coast to the northern state line, giving you a base to explore any or all the many outdoors adventures and other things to do our state has to offer.
