Lake Lowndes State Park Columbus, MS


Our six day visit to Lake Lowndes State Park eight miles southeast of Columbus, MS was a very pleasant surprise for us.  This park offers the most serene atmosphere for camping that we have visited in the Mississippi State Park system.  Immediately upon our arrival we noticed that the park was very quiet and peaceful.  The campground is very well kept and maintained.  Premium sites are right on the 150 acre Lake Lowndes.  The lake is stocked with bass, catfish, bream, and crappie.  The park is huge..they offer complete facilities for football, soccer, softball (3 or 4 fields), tennis, basketball, volleyball, and other organized sports. They even have an amphitheater.  The park is designed for family fun.

We also noticed how friendly the staff was to us.  Miss Julie is at the check-in gate and Mr. J.R. is the park ranger.  Both of them exceeded our expectation of kind and friendly service.  The park offers full hookups on their premium sites and receives local networks ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox very clearly.  We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend Lake Lowndes State Park to everyone.  We are sure planning on coming back.
