Combine the modern comforts of RV camping with the natural beauty of a state park as unspoiled as when Native Americans first inhabited the area. Under the canopy of mature trees, you would indeed feel far removed from the cares of modern living at Legion Campground tucked away in the red hill country of Mississippi. Yet you will have a great time camping with an RV here as the campground provides water, sewer, and 50 amp electric hookups, and a modern bathhouse with hot showers.
Picnic tables and grills make preparing and enjoying outdoor meals possible. A picnic pavilion is available for large group gatherings while a rustic stone lodge is available as a meeting/banquet room. Don't hesitate to bring your little ones and furry ones. Playground equipment is installed in the park, and pets are welcome in each site. Most are back-in with a few pull-through sites available too. Maximum site length here is 40 feet.
Legion Campground makes a convenient base for Louisville campers to explore one of the most scenic, lesser-traveled parkways in the South, the Natchez Trace. Jackson, the state capital, is only two hours' drive from town. And if you are into Native American history, benefit from the campground's proximity to Louisville area, which the Choctaws have settled for hundreds of years.
One of the best reasons to search for an RV in Winston County is the opportunity to drive down the scenic and largely off-the-radar Natchez Trace Parkway. Designated as an All-American Road, the parkway’s 444 miles offer seemingly endless opportunities to get out of your Louisville camper rental and experience a part of it, whatever your interests. At Sunken Trace at milepost 41.5, retrace the footsteps of those traveling the original Old Natchez Trace and go back in time over 200 years. From Jackson to Tupelo, explore the recreation opportunities at the Ross Barnett Reservoir, pause at scenic overlooks, and look around archaeological sites.
Prehistoric mound sites, Civil War battlefields, and waterfalls entertain you along the way as you drive from Tupelo then over the Alabama state line and finally into Tennessee. Once in Nashville where the road ends, you'll have a fill of the best the Music City has to offer: the Grand Ole Opry; the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum; and the RCA Studio B (now a museum offering guided tours) where some of the greatest names in country music have laid down their tracks.
Camping at Legion Campground also puts you within a two-hour drive of the Tombigbee National Forest. The rolling hills were once abandoned and badly eroded farmland, but today pine and hardwood forests provide habitat for wildlife and opportunities for outdoor recreation. Saddle up at the 32-mile Noxubee Hills Mountain Bike Trail and the 15-mile Witch Dance Horse Trail, and sink a line at Choctaw and Davis lakes. If you want to venture down the Natchez Trace Parkway, it can be accessed from both the Witch Dance Horse Trail and Davis Lake.
The Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge was of similar state until the government acquired it for rehabilitation. Today, almost 90% of its 48,000 acres are covered in bottomland and upland woodlands. Game species - quail, deer, and turkey - have taken up residence here, and so have migratory birds, wintering waterfowl, and bald eagles. The endangered red-cockaded woodpecker has also sought sanctuary at the refuge, making regular appearances in spring in tree cavities when they are nesting.
Louisville and the surrounding area is home to the Choctaws' sacred ground, Nanih Waiya, regarded by most Native Americans as their legendary place of emergence. The large rectangular platform is thought to have been constructed between 100 BC to 400 AD. As the mounds are sacred, the state park it is located in is not open for tours, but when you camp in an RV near Louisville, you can learn more about the Choctaw nation in Philadelphia during the Choctaw Indian Fair in mid-July, or visit the Choctaw Museum of the Southern Indian in the village of Choctaw, to examine exhibits that preserve the history of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.
Any time of the year, Louisville is a fantastic place to explore, with its historic district lined with antebellum homes built in the mid-19th century. Complementing Louisville’s old-world charm, the antique fire engines and equipment at the American Heritage Fire Museum date to as far back as the late 18th century.
For a taste of local arts and crafts, find a campsite at Legion Campground in late May when the annual Red Hills Festival kicks off. Two dozen grocery stores and a dozen gas stations in town will keep you well-supplied and sufficiently fueled for this multi-day event. Enjoy carnival rides, local entertainment, and a car show to make the most of your visit.
So when you’re looking for a family-friend campground in eastern Mississippi, consider staying at RV parks in Louisville to enjoy a generous dose of nature, adventure, and culture. Start making your travel plans today and book an RV rental in Louisville, Mississippi, for that life-changing journey.
