Camping in Mississippi

Mississippi is “The Magnolia State”. Campers love its 23 state parks spread over 630,000 acres. Visitors can explore the Mississippi Delta (sometimes called the “most southern place on earth”), the rolling hills of the north, and the coastal region. Alongside year-round camping, Mississippi is renowned for its Civil Rights history, blues music, and southern hospitality. Bring your boat to explore and fish the state’s many lakes and rivers (permits might be required).
