When you rent an RV near Collins, Mississippi, consider parking at one of the campsites at Lake Mike Connor Campground, far enough off the beaten path to guarantee peace and quiet, but not so far that getting back becomes an issue. This back-to-basics RV campground is away from the major highways, not just sheltered by a wall of trees, but still a short drive away from a corner store. It's also situated right on the lake it takes its name from, meaning swimming and boating are only steps away on the lake. The individual campsites have electric and water hookups (but no sewer hookup), and the RV park is child and pet-friendly, with big rig access and some pull-through campsites.
If you do need to get back into town to fuel up your rental RV, stock up on groceries, or just wander around and take in the sights, the town of Collins is just down the road. It has a number of fast-food restaurants for a quick meal on the run, auto parts stores, a cafe and dollar store, a waterpark, and a couple of urban parks where you can take a leisurely stroll as compared to an energetic hike. If you're in the mood to get some dirt on your hands, there is a family-run commercial farm nearby that is open to the public and worth spending time at, especially if you have younger kids with you. You might also consider taking your RV rental for a spin on the local highways; driving an RV is just one of the unique features of a vacation like this, and one that you don't want to miss.

The park is largely a series of rolling hills with pine tree stands and rivers and creeks cutting across the landscape. There are some areas within the forest that are true wilderness if you should wish to really experience nature in all its glory. There are tens of miles of hiking trails for you to explore as well as trails designated for ATV vehicles and equestrian riders. Your treks may take you through a variety of landscapes such as pine/scrub oak ridges, bald cypress swamps, upland hardwood forests, and pitcher plant savannas, just to name a few.
Once you're ready to begin experiencing the history and culture of the area, start by heading for the town of Magee. The town has a flea market where you can browse for knick-knacks and gifts for people back home, and see if you can find something you might not have otherwise thought about. Nothing, however, describes a community better than its food scene, and Magee scores well in this area. There is a substantial assortment of establishments to choose from; some of them are commercial chain enterprises, and some are locally owned and operated, meaning there is something for everyone.
Prentiss has a smaller but still reasonable selection of restaurants to choose from, including a few seafood eateries, a steakhouse, and a good old-fashioned drive-in restaurant.
