Returned last week from my first trip to Mississippi Palisades with my sister. The park was mostly empty, and we ended up changing sites from the one originally reserved, moving from site 6 near the front to site 213 near the back. There were mostly tent campers while we were there, in fact mine was the only popup we saw. While the park was nice and well kept, the shower/bathroom nearest our site wasn't so great. The worst thing though, were the hoards upon hoards of gnats. No amount of bug spray, smoke from the campfire, flailing arms, or words of condemnation would keep them at bay! There we all over you pretty much from sun up to sun down. Setting up and tearing down was brutal. Not sure if this is a normal occurrence there, but it sucked. We ended up driving to Galena on Saturday to spend the day instead of camp, fish, and hike. We ended up calling the trip short and headed home early, as did several other camper from what that checking station told me. Still, the area is beautiful with rolling hills reminding me of TN where my mom lives. I might have to give it a try again in the fall, hopefully when the gnats are gone.
