Hattiesburg is a city in Mississippi, primarily in Forrest Countyand extending west into Lamar County. It is the principal city of the Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses Forrest, Lamar and Perry counties.

Founded in 1882 by civil engineer William H. Hardy, Hattiesburg was named in honor of Hardy's wife Hattie. The town was incorporated two years later with a population of 400. Hattiesburg's population first expanded as a center of the lumber and railroad industries, from which was derived the nickname "The Hub City". It now attracts newcomers to the area because of the diversity of the economy, strong neighborhoods and the central location in South Mississippi.

Hattiesburg is home to The University of Southern Mississippi (originally known as Mississippi Normal College) and William Carey University (formerly William Carey College). South of Hattiesburg is Camp Shelby, the largest National Guard training base east of the Mississippi River.

This was a nice campground. The pool was big. But there were so many lovebugs that the pool was not enjoyable, nor was being outside. Karen did go in the pool once because nobody else was in it. Lee thought the pool was too cold. Karen also tried the hot tub, but there was not timer or jets to turn on so it did not seem like a hot tub without bubbling jets to calm the body. Plus, it too, was full of lovebugs. The two RV Gypsies were here just passing time to see what Hurricane Irma was going to do, because it was aimed right at their family in south Florida, so they could not return home as planned.

For GPS to locate this park, it might require changing the city from Hattiesburg, MS to Seminary, MS. Check-in Time was 1 p.m. for RVs, 3 p.m. for cabins. Check-out time was 11:30 am. Amenities here included, convenience store, laundry, ice, frozen pizza, propane, fishing (catch and release), and Okatoma Creek Access, pool, hot tub. Covington County is a dry county. There were trees, but most sites did not have good shade from the trees.

The first 3 nights the two RV Gypsies were here no trains were heard. But then each night after that, a train or two were heard each evening around bedtime.
