Piney Grove Recreation Area – Piney Grove Campground – New Site, MS

          

The Piney Grove Campground is located on Bay Springs Lake, along the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, in Northeast Mississippi.  The campground is open March 1st to mid-November each year and is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  The campground has 144 sites and each site has a picnic table, grill, fire ring, lantern post, water, electrical hookups (including 50 amps) but unfortunately has no sewer hookups.  Cell phone coverage was excellent.

We enjoyed this six day trip very much.  Our site was right on the water.  The weather was superb and the wind was motionless.  On our last two trips we had to fight 30-40 mile-per-hour winds.  The temperature range was ideal with highs in the seventies and lows in the low sixties.  Our site was surrounded by beautiful dogwoods.  At times it seemed to be raining dogwood flower petals all around us.   

The only thing that keeps this campground from a perfect five is the fact that they do not have sewer hookups. GreatOutdoorBlessings star rating out of 5 ***** is a  4****
