Under new management since 02/20/2014
My parents camp with a large nationally known camping group. On many occasions I will drop in and spend the day with them if nearby camping. I come and go inside the campgrounds with no bother, maybe just the occasional state park drive thru where you wave and say you’re visiting, never getting out of the vehicle. River Town Campground in Vicksburg, MS is not like the other campgrounds where you come to enjoy nature and the company. It is run like a military barrack with check in even if you’re just popping in. If you don’t stop, get out of your car (no matter the weather) and go in, you will be hunted down! Also, under no circumstances should you park on the grass, you will be hunted down! Mind you the pads are not paved and depending on your rig size you may not even have room for your own vehicle, much less an in town visitor. There isn't much mischief you could get into (not that I would) considering it’s mostly a flat open area with very little trees, you can see anyone at anytime so I’m not sure why all the fuss about “check in” is so significant. If nature and peace is what you’re looking for, go elsewhere. Truly, I’m amazed that someone with such poor people skills would own a place for people to come and go. The only plus side is it that is maintained, but then again, so is a military barrack!
