    We stayed at the Bogue Chitto Water Park outside of McComb, MS this weekend. We stayed in campsite #35, adjacent to a bathhouse.

    The Good:

    The Water Park is adjacent to the Bogue Chitto River, and there is a swimming area (it's a little hike thru the woods) on the river. We also went tubing on the Bogue Chitto on Saturday, and the take-out spot is within the BCWP. I was surprised at how few bugs were harassing us in the evenings.

    The price for the campsite we stayed at (electric and water, no sewer, gravel parking pad) was $16.00. The site was very well-shaded and level and fairly quiet. No waterfront sites though (probably too much to hope for at this price).

    The Bad: The bathroom next door to our campsite was extremely disappointing. One urinal just didn't flush, there was always water (?) on the floor in front of the commode, and one roll of toilet paper was wet. The shower had questionable hot water, and water pressure was sketchy. This is not to mention my wife's appraisal of the women's restroom. In fairness, she poked her head in another restroom in a different part of the campground and said it appeared better than ours. The road in front of our campsite was also gravel instead of asphalt, so the kids couldn't ride their scooters we brought.

    Would we stay there again? Hard to say. Maybe we have just been spoiled by the restrooms at the State parks we have stayed in. We might try Percy Quin State Park in McComb next time; even though it's a little farther away from tubing, it likely has nicer restrooms and paved roads for the kids' scooters. If you have a camper with your own commode and shower, it's tough to beat this price and convenience though if you are going tubing on the Bogue Chitto river. (Improved campsites with concrete pads, water, electricity, and sewer are $20.00).
