Drive right into Movietown RV Park and get instant hook-ups to electricity (30/50 amp), sewer, and water. A lot of folks live permanently at the park, but there are always pull-through and back-in sites available for RVers traveling through Mississippi. The setting is somewhat rural, with bushy trees and cows in a nearby pasture. Sites and access roads are gravel with a good stretch of mowed grass between camper vans. Pads may not be perfectly flat, so you might have to use a leveling block to stabilize your RV. All sites have a picnic table and you can hire a fire ring at the park office. The daily rate is $30.
The park features pioneer-style cabins with everything you need for a comfortable stay, plus on-site storage units for locals relocating or living at the park. Restrooms, showers, and a laundry are clean and well-maintained thanks to hosts who live at the camp. Kids have access to a playground and wifi is available for most sites.
This is a simple but sociable RV park where the family pooch can exercise with areas allocated for walking. The pet policy requires all woofers to be monitored by their owners and kept on a leash while at the camp. Guardians are also responsible for picking up their pets' waste, so make a note to pack litter bags. There are no recorded restrictions on breeds, but it always pays to check when you make a booking.
The park is close to the interstate and around 3 miles from Canton, a city that boasts a multicultural center and museum for folks interested in local and national history. Collectors of antique gems will be thrilled to find Crossroads Vintage Treasures and hopefully take home a rare piece of Mississippi heritage.
The Cypress Swamp walking trail offers a half-mile jaunt across a boardwalk with close-up views of wildlife, while a 30-minute drive to Jackson highlights the best of Southern attractions. The matriarch of mighty rivers is honored with the Mississippi River Bridge, an outstanding landmark built in the early 1920s.
Staying in a cabin, RV, or tent at Movietown RV Park gives you the front row seats to the Mississippi Hot Air Balloon Fest, held locally in Canton on the tail end of June. It's always a peak time at this casual stop-over park -- it's a good idea to book in advance so you don't miss your spot!
