Bogue Chitto Water Park Campground

The Bogue Chitto Water Park and RV Campground is located about halfway between the towns of McComb and Tylertown, and just off Highway 98. While this region of southern Mississippi might seem isolated, it’s actually only a 90-minute drive from the capital in Jackson and about two hours' drive from New Orleans, Louisiana. Campsites include water, sewer, and electrical hookups (20/30 amp capacity), picnic tables, and flush toilets. There’s also a playground, which is great if you’re travel trailer camping with kids and need a place where they can burn off some excess energy.Despite the name, this is not a water park of the lazy river and epic slide variety, but rather a Mississippi-specific reference to the nearby Bogue Chitto River and the recreational opportunities that it offers. The nearest conventional water park is an hour's drive to the south on the north side of Lake Pontchartrain.

The Great Outdoors

The Bogue Chitto River provides all sorts of excellent recreational opportunities, and when you choose a campsite at Bogue Chitto Water Park and RV Campground, one of the best things to do is merely floating down its waters. Inner tubes and kayak rentals, along with shuttle services, can be found just south of the campground and in Tylertown. Floating the river is a relaxing way to experience the beauty of southern Mississippi and is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.You won’t find any mountains at the campsites near McComb, but there are some hills worth hiking in the Clear Springs Recreation Area of the Homochitto National Forest. Inside the recreation area, you’ll find a 12-acre spring-fed pond that’s popular with anglers and swimmers, particularly on hot summer days. The hiking trails around the lake can be surprisingly steep, so don’t go thinking this will be a walk in the park. If you’ve got a set of wheels, some of the trails are designated for mountain bikes and make for a pretty thrilling ride.There’s also Bogue Chitto State Park, which is about 20 miles south of Tylertown and a 45-minute drive from the campground. The 17,000-acre green space encompasses some fascinating cypress swamps that are a joy to paddle through when you rent a kayak or canoe. Several lakes within its boundaries are stocked with a variety of freshwater fish. Those looking to play a round of golf when RV camping at Bogue Chitto Waterpark and Campground will find a few courses to choose from around McComb and Tylertown.

Exploring the City

If you’re looking for urban amenities when you rent a camper near Bogue Chitto Water Park and RV Campground, your best bet is the town of McComb, a 15-minute drive to the northwest. While its dining scene isn’t comparable to the Cajun delights of the Big Easy or the delicious BBQ of Jackson, there’s a good selection of American diners, steakhouses, and even a sushi joint. For shopping, there’s the Edgewood Mall, which has many of the chain stores that you’d find in any suburban shopping center. A flea market and antique stores can be found on Main Street, but other than that, there aren’t many independent shops to peruse.When you need to fuel up your RV rental or empty the tanks, head to the truck stop just south of McComb on Interstate 55. The fuel bays are larger than the smaller service stations on Highway 98, making it easier to maneuver your rental RV.One of the more interesting attractions in McComb is the McComb Railroad Museum, which houses some beautifully restored steam engines and rolling stock from the Illinois Central Railroad that once passed through McComb. It’s a great place to take the kids, as many of the exhibits are interactive, like an incredibly loud train whistle. There’s also a playground on-site, which is nice if they’ve had a long day in the RV and are feeling antsy.One of the more unusual things to see when you book an RV in Pike County, MS, is the unofficial Britney Spears Museum in Kentwood, Louisiana. Spears was born in McComb but grew up in Kentwood, and the town’s Historical and Cultural Museum is primarily dedicated to its most famous former resident. The space was previously a funeral home but was transformed in the mid-'90s when Spears’ major gig was the Mickey Mouse Club. Now you can see all sorts of memorabilia from her tours along with promotional materials from all of her albums and appearances; it’s a must for any fan of Britney.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
