Clarkco State Park, Quitman, MS

Overnighting at Clarkco State Park

We were unable to make reservations for this evening, as ReserveAmerica requires a two-day reservation for weekends.  But I checked to see if any sites were available, and there were several.  I was surprised, but happy!

A Standard site

All the campsites here (except the primitive section) have full hookups.  There are Premium sites for $24.00 per night, or Standard sites for $20.00.  I couldn’t really tell much difference between the two.  Maybe the Premium sites are bigger and more private.  The senior discount only applied toward the standard sites, so we opted for that — for $14.00 per night.  Not bad for full hookups!  🙂

A woman fishing. I hope she caught some nice ones!

After we got set up, I walked inside the Casita and was struck anew by how pretty and nice it is.  I think we have the most beautiful little trailer in the whole world!  I feel so very blessed to have it!

We were both tired and hungry when we got here this evening.  So I mixed up some coleslaw and threw hot dogs on the grill.  I am not about to admit how many hot dogs I ate.  But they were SO good!

I took the plastic storage drawers out from under my bed this evening and put them on the seat next to the rear twin bed so that Sheba could have the resulting cave to sleep in.  Instead she is sprawled out in front of the door.  So I guess I’ll leave my storage in place the rest of the trip.  I can’t believe that she prefers to be stepped over — and sometimes on — than to curl up in that safe little cave.

A waterfront site

We should meet up with Gail and Mike at Flint Creek Water Park tomorrow afternoon.

  1. Your trailer is indeed beautiful – you have made it so. The interior is tres chic and I love seeing photos of it. Great little campsite you got there too. What’s your itenerary ( I must have missed it)?

    • Kim, nothing terribly exciting. We met my sister and BIL at the halfway point between their house in Texas and our house in Georgia. We plan to just enjoy spending time together for a week. Lots of swimming in the lake is the only real thing on our agenda. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the info, Sharon. I had been to Clarkco State park for a day time picnic when I was stationed at NAS Meridian many years ago; I may very well use it for my first night’s stop when I leave Pensacola and head for Kansas and Colorado next month.

    • Chuck, it was a very nice to stop. We enjoyed the peace and the slow Mississippi aura of the place. I didn’t use the campground showers so don’t know how their restroom and laundry facilities were.
