We camped at this Mississippi state park in our RV. The lake is beautiful and the area is extremely relaxing. We rode our bicycles around the park roads. Spaces were mostly level with some Shade. Very quiet.

We stay at Paul B Johnson State Park a couple times a year. We love the relaxing atmosphere and the kids have so much fun. The cabins are definitely state park rustic. The furnishings are all plastic covered. This definitely makes sense due to it...More
