Nuzzled up against the river that shares its name, the state of Mississippi is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. From the mighty Mississippi River on the west, to the mountains in the North and East, there is enough to see and do here to last a lifetime. Jellystone Park™ is proud to offer multiple campgrounds in Mississippi that allow you and your family to take advantage of all the outdoor opportunities that the Magnolia State has to offer.
Mississippi Fishing Spots
Located within a short drive of Jellystone Park’s campground in Pelahatchie, MS is the Ross Barnett Reservoir. During the late spring and early summer, this manmade lake is absolutely hopping with bass. The frequency of the catches makes this a great fishing destination to take your children.
If you are camping further north in the state at our campground in Horn Lake, Mississippi , you can try your luck fishing on the Mississippi. The river is home to a large variety of catfish, some of which can grow to over 10 feet long. You might need all hands on deck to reel in some of the larger catfish of the Mississippi River.
Wherever you choose to fish, your family will enjoy the time spent together fishing from the shady banks of the Mississippi or on a boat underneath the pleasant sun
Science & Nature Museums
The state’s museums bring the outdoors to you and are a great place to visit on your family vacation to Mississippi. Close to our Pelahatchie family campground is the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science. At the museum, you can experience the state from top to bottom as you and your family view each display. Your children will love the hands on activities and everyone can learn something about the natural wonders of this great state.
Just down highway 78 from our Horn Lake campground is the Montrose & Montrose Arboretum. Here visitors can experience over 50 different types of plant and tree wildlife that are native to the region. This is an excellent choice for a quick day trip, leaving plenty of time for you to enjoy the family activities back at the campground.
Whichever Yogi Bear Jellystone Park you choose to bring your family to, you can be confident that there will always be plenty to see and do near the campground. We hope to see you soon!
