Camping in Mississippi will give you an unforgettable southern snapshot, from historic Buccaneer State Park on the Gulf Coast to the Appalachian foothills in northern Tishomingo State Park. The Longleaf Trace Trail stretches the 40 miles between Hattiesburg and Prentiss, and is a popular hike because of its wide, paved roads that cut through smaller towns along the way. Once a vital timber route, hundreds of hikers and horseback riders share this trail every year. For a more primitive adventure, sites like Little Sunflower River and Blue Lake offer a small number of quiet campgrounds surrounded by cypress and pine forest. In the northwestern delta region, Yazoo National Wildlife Refuge is the place for family fun, as visitors can enjoy meditative views from observation towers or a glimpse at the American alligators that populate the area.
