Stay on an old rail road in the wilderness in the Deep South. The BCCC is located in McComb Mississippi, deep in the woods. The campground is an old railroad right-of-way that was converted to a campground and kayak rental business in the 80's and is now abandoned. Behind the lockable campground gate is your Box Car and Camps.**You and  your mates will be the only campers on the property**

The box car is habitable but not glamorous, has electricity, hot water, small refrigerator, small window AC, hot plate and a working toilet but no shower (for now).  

A tent can be set up next to the box car, on the porch or at one of the adjacent, primitive sites. 

In the back of the gated campground an ancient, majestic, train trestle bridge spans a clear creek in the middle of nowhere. This is a great place to be quiet, enjoy the solitude.

Outside the gate on the adjacent property is a historic caboose and coach car on for you to explore and enjoy. 

This is a special place that will connect you with history, nature, yourself and your travel mates. The property is historic and is said to be haunted (not confirmed). If you choose to stay here please note: This is a very secluded campsite and you will likely be alone. It gets very dark.  There is some tricky terrain.

Please plan on calling me for more details on the best ways to enjoy the property.

The accommodations are rustic, not 5 star but the experience will make you want to come back. If history, nature and seclusion is your thing - the Bogue Chitto Choo Choo will not disappoint.

Super easy to get to but also very private. I loved the Bogue Chitto Choo Choo and can’t wait to return! The river is gorgeous and fun to follow along. The water is as clear as can be. Plenty of room to camp with multiple options. I met the owner, Bryan at my arrival and he was very helpful and friendly. He said he could arrange a shuttle for the Bogue Chitto River and kayak, canoe, or tube. I plan to do that next trip very soon!

We camped here for two nights with two kids and a dog. It was great! It’s EXACTLY what Hipcamp does best: find unique experiences. The setting is gorgeous. The history and surroundings are interesting. Those looking for spooks will be creeped out by the haunted train car and the caves where a bank robber hid money before he died. Bryan and his son were so helpful but also gave us plenty of privacy.

Things to help future campers: you will not park next to your site. There is a bit of a walk so be prepared to camp light or make a few trips. We had a hard time building a fire with the wood in the area. It might be our lack of skill, but we wished we had brought firewood. We also needed tic repellent. We pulled tics off everyone by the end.

This campsite was great! We came here because we were looking for a place to camp outside that would also have a rain plan for the potential thunderstorms of the weekend. Brian gave us the run of the place, and let us set up camp under the big porch by the abandoned train depot. We fit three tents and our kitchen and hangout area under the porch and was able to stay dry and have fun while the storm pounded down. Brian was super kind and helpful the whole weekend. There are some sweet hiking trails through the campgrounds which aren't entirely cleared, and a beautiful creek and creek-bank that are perfect for a private, shady afternoon splash. Will definitely come back here. There is quite a lot of poison ivy here so be careful!

Bogue Chitto is a private camp built on the bones of a larger campground that went out of business about a decade ago. The camp sites have amazing (really amazing) drainage. We were there during a 3 hour thunderstorm and not a single tent was flooded or even wet on the inside. Everything listed in the amenities is accurate, and the location is really nice and private. This is a good spot for a getaway for the family, or a group of friends, and there is a well-stocked gas station within walking distance in case you forget anything. The creek area is really magical — you're likely to find tons of fossils of shells, honeycomb and flowers if you dig through the rocks, and even yellow ochre (makes great body paint).

The host Bryan was very nice and quickly responds to all questions and goes above and beyond to provide the best experience possible. He arranged last minute for his outfitter Chad to shuttle us kayaking and provided the kayaks. Chad was awesome and even went out the way to accommodate us according to our skill level (dropped us at a spot on the river to fit our needs). The property is beautiful and the secluded creek that ypu have private access to was very relaxing and so beautiful.
