Mississippi's State Parks are more than just good, they are award-winning.
Reserve America recently released its list of it "Top 100 Campground Awards" and Mississippi State Parks were well represented.

More than 4,000 parks and campgrounds nation-wide were reviewed and seven of Mississippi's Parks made the Top 100. John W. Kyle (Sardis), Lake Lincoln (Wesson), Percy Quin (McComb), Tishomingo (Tishomingo), LeFleur's (Jackson), J.P. Coleman (Iuka) and Trace (Belden) State Parks earned high marks to make the Top 100.
