Do you love to be out in the open, enjoying nature and the outdoors, yet want to be a stone's throw from the comforts of civilization? If you are anywhere near Tupelo, camping with an RV at Tombigbee Campground is worth considering. Most of the sites here are connected to water, sewer, and electrical hookups, and the wooded setting provides ample shade and some degree of seclusion if you want some quiet time to yourself. It doesn’t mean living like a hermit, though. Tupelo campers may enjoy hot showers in the bathhouse where the laundry facilities are also located.Tombigbee Campground is both child and pet-friendly, as all motorhome camping sites welcome furry friends and little visitors. Children have a playground to run around in while adults enjoy volleyball and disc golf. Cast a line or launch a boat on Lake Lee, give your legs a workout at the nearby nature trail, and take part in one of the few events the state park schedules every few months: a disc golf tournament in April; a Kids to Parks Day in May; and an anniversary celebration for Tombigbee State Park in July.For classic nights at camp, keep the fires burning at the fire ring, have a cookout on the grill, and enjoy a picnic dinner in the company of family and friends. Then make plans on how to make the most of your rental RV on one of the South's most scenic All-American Roads, the Natchez Trace Parkway.

The Great Outdoors

If there’s one convincing reason for you to book an RV in Lee County, it is the proximity to the Natchez Trace Parkway. The parkway headquarters is just 15 minutes' drive away when camping at Tombigbee Campground. The trailhead of the 12-mile round trip Blackland Prairie Trail (a portion of the Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail) is just right across the visitor center, allowing you to explore this out-and-back trail for as short or as long as you wish.A few miles from the visitor center is the Tupelo National Battlefield, where Union forces kept the Confederate soldiers at bay and away from the Union railroads in Tennessee on July 14 and July 15, 1864. For a more ambitious adventure on your campervan rental, follow the two-lane scenic highway as the parkway cuts diagonally across Mississippi, or venture outside the state line into Alabama and finally into road's end in Nashville, Tennessee.Anglers eager to cast a line have a couple of destinations to choose from: the 320-acre Elvis Presley Lake and the similarly sized Lake Lamar Bruce for a haul of bluegill, crappie, and largemouth bass. Redear and catfish are also abundant in both lakes located in Lee County, some 15 minutes’ drive in your Tupelo camper rental.Less than an hour's drive away from town is the Tombigbee National Forest, where several recreation areas beckon with a range of opportunities for outdoor adventure. Swimming, boating, and fishing are all popular at the Choctaw Lake and the Davis Lake recreation areas while equestrian, hiking/biking, and ATV trails are the top crowd-pleasers at the Witch Dance Horse Trail, the Noxubee Hills Bike Trail, and the Chickasaw ATV Trail, respectively. If you wish to combine outdoor sightseeing with a lesson in history, visit the Owl Creek Mounds Site, where the earliest mound was built nearly 1,000 years ago.

Exploring the Area

Tupelo, the birthplace of Elvis Presley, is only 15 minutes' drive away from the campsites at Tombigbee Campground. In town, you'll see the "shotgun" house his father Vernon built by hand in preparation for "the King's" birth. Look beyond this tiny structure, and several other attractions are there to entertain and delight visitors of all ages. Bring the kids to the Buffalo Park and Zoo and to the Healthworks Kids Museum; the motor aficionado to the Automobile Museum; and the history lover to the Civil War Battlefield and the Oren Dunn City Museum.You can also plan your trip around Tupelo’s exciting festivals. There are abundant options for eating out, and buying groceries and supplies in town, including dozens of gas stations, so you won't have to travel far to make sure you are amply fueled and well-provisioned if you plan to stay awhile and immerse yourself in all the local action. Tupelo's food scene itself is worth carving time out for, especially if you're into Southern comfort food, Cajun-inspired cuisine, and craft cocktails.To get in on all the fun, rent a camper near Tombigbee Campground in April when the Tupelo Hot Air Balloon Festival takes flight. There's an opportunity to enjoy a premium ride, or a tethered ride when the balloon is secured to the ground, and the flights go up and down. The month of May sees a different crowd when the Tupelo Film Festival screens features, documentaries, foreign films, and even student-made films. And if you want to meet like-minded and similarly costumed fans, camp in an RV near Tupelo in June to honor the city’s most celebrated native son during the Elvis Festival.If there ever is a place in Mississippi that truly has everything for everyone, Tupelo is it. Whether you come for a combination of delightful outdoors, scenery, adventure, or the crowd magnets that have made Tupelo one of the Magnolia State’s premier visitor centers, you’re in for a real treat. So book your RV rental in Tupelo, Mississippi today, and start making wonderful memories.

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.
