    The Sardis Lake Field office of the US Army Corps of Engineers manages multiple campgrounds around the lake suitable for pop-up campers, other than the one mentioned in a previous thread. There are two locations that are both Class A and in close proximity to Oxford, MS:

    Coontown Campground - Mostly, this area is attractive to fishermen, but it's a low-key place to camp with Oxford just minutes away. There is a shower building that's nice.

    Clear Creek - Mostly ignored. No lakeside sites. The place will be practically empty most of the year, so if seclusion is your thing...it has a shower building. The city of Oxford is a close drive.

    Pat's Bluff Campground - is between the dam and Hwy 6. It is somewhat secluded, but there will be other campers. Sites offer excellent views of the Upper Lake. It has a shower building.

    There is a concessionaire campground located on the north side of the lake at Teckville Landing. It has access to a decent shower building that is managed by the Corps of Engineers. There was a popular restaurant there, but it has recently closed. This area is most appealing to fishermen and is often fully booked during crappie season.

    There are other places to camp around the lake. Some offer a restroom with no shower facilities, but none other than those mentioned above have hook-ups for your camper. Some have community water and at least one actually has a shower building.

    Call 662-563-4531 for more information.

    @ranger_ray , when we are traversing Arkansas & Tennessee via I-40, how far will this take us off route? Our last trip through we over-nighted at Village Creek S.P. on the Arkansas side.

    You’re looking at about 50 minutes, give or take, from Memphis to Sardis Dam.
