The Great Outdoors

Camp in a travel trailer near Meridian, MS, and head to Bienville National Forest near Forest, which lies just over an hour’s drive west of the RV campground. It’s named for the 18th-century colonist Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville and is traversed by the upper reaches of the Leaf and Strong Rivers. Anglers can try their luck at luring bass, bream, and crappie in Marathon and Shongelo Lakes while there are three Wildlife Management Areas where hunting for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, and other game is permitted.Closer to Meridian is Bonita Lakes Park, which centers around three lakes on the eastern edge of the city. It sprawls across 3,300 acres and provides plenty of recreational opportunities for local residents, including hiking, horseback riding, and fishing. Stretch your legs on one of the nature trails or take advantage of the mountain biking routes that wind along the lake shores.Meridian campers are also within easy access of Okatibbee Lake, which was created following the construction of the Okatibbee Dam in 1968. Aside from being used for flood control and municipal drinking water, the lake is also a popular recreational destination for boating, fishing, and camping. You can take a dip from one of the swimming beaches or stroll along the lakeshore, with hunting opportunities in designated areas of the surrounding flooded woodlands.

Another museum not to miss is the Jimmie Rodgers Museum, which honors the “Father of Country Music.” Browse the historical and personal artifacts related to this legendary musician’s life and work, including some of his former instruments.If you’re traveling with kids, don’t miss a visit to the Dentzel Antique Carousel at Highland Park, which was manufactured in 1896 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It arrived in Meridian in 1909 and has occupied the same location in Highland Park ever since. Ride what is the only remaining original carousel built from a Dentzel blueprint left in the world, with the structure meticulously renovated in the 1980s and 1990s.Meridian East / Toomsuba KOA can also be used as a base for visiting Jackson, which lies just over 90 minutes’ drive to the east. It’s renowned for its sights associated with the Civil Rights Movement, many of which are highlighted along the statewide Mississippi Freedom Trail that runs through the city.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
