Bigfoot Trail Camp Recreation Area, Perkinston, Mississippi
When hurricane Irma started heading towards Florida, it was time to for us to hit the road again and head out of the state. We did a bit of Walmart hopping to wait things out but, as always, that only works for so long. We needed the quiet of the woods! This is when we found Bigfoot Trail Camp Recreation Area in Perkinston, Mississippi.
During the week, we had the back 1/2 of the camping area all to ourselves, and on the weekend, only a few horse trailers showed up for a short time. The campground was quiet, filled only with the sounds of wildlife, and there were butterflies. Lots, of awesome butterflies.
The sites, including firepits and picnic tables were clean and mostly well kept. Grass around some picnic tables and benches was a little tall, but not enough to be unusable. There is a bathroom facility here; we located a water hydrant, but does not seem to be in working order. The campground contained multiple large sites on a long, easily accessible loop. There are also a few horse trails that made for a few nice walks with our dog. Since this camping area is not situated on water the mosquitoes were limited to a short period around dusk. Firewood is scarce unless you walk a horse trail and brave some high grasses to drag some logs out of the woods.
This was another great stop along our journey – I’m sure we’ll stay here again next time we are through Mississippi.
