Ratliff Ferry May 31, 2012

Posted by marzwaggener in Campgrounds, Mississippi.

On Monday, May 21st, Charlotte and her family drove me down to the Ratliff Ferry campground. It’s a beautiful area on the water – people launch their boats for fishing and recreation and there’s nice areas for both RV and tent camping. There’s a small convenience store and a restaurant, and campers have access to showers (HUGE plus for me!)

The next day a bicyclist named Kevin came to the campground. We shared pizza and drinks and built a fire to keep the bugs away. Kevin is an ultralight camper and uses a VERY small tent.

That evening Walt Grayson’s “Look Around Mississippi” aired on WLBT. The owner of the campsite very kindly tuned in and let me watch in the restaurant. It was pretty cool to see myself on TV – the 6PM news no less! – and since I stayed past 6 to watch the show, I camped another night there.
