In Mississippi! May 4, 2012Posted by marzwaggener in Campgrounds, Mississippi.
I mentioned at the end of my last post already, I finally made it over into Mississippi! On May 2nd, I ran out of water in a long stretch of nothing (again!!!) so I took a ride to a convenience store. (I was 7 or 8 miles from the border, 9 or 10 miles from the next gas station.) I stayed one night in a field behind the truck stop where Mike dropped me off, and a large part of the next day sitting inside. I talked to truck drivers, got caught up on email and blog postings, and left around 3:30 or 4. I backtracked a few miles to a campground I spotted on Google Maps – Parkwood RV Park. On the way a beautiful rainbow appeared over Columbus.
The RV park is pretty nice – quiet, no rowdy kids, and even has washing machines!!! I was VERY happy to get to wash my clothes. There was no tent camping though. I called the manager, and he let me camp next to the office and didn’t even charge me. If you’re RV camping in Columbus, Parkwood RV Park is a nice spot.
