Mississippi Camping and RVing Travel Guide


Land of the Blues
Discover Mississippi, the land of the blues, cotton, the Mississippi River, and Elvis. This is the ancient dwelling ground of the Natchez and Choctaw Native Americans, the site of Civil War battles, and Civil Rights tragedies. But this state has a beautiful natural side, from the Appalachian foothills in the northwest, to the lagoons and beaches of the southern Gulf Coast.
In the Delta region, view cotton fields and rich farmland, and the occasional cypress swamp. In the Central region, visit the capital of Jackson, set in rolling hills and farmland. The southeastern Piney Woods region and white-sand beaches of the Gulf Coast make these areas a welcome spot for any traveler. If you happen to visit Mississippi in February, stop in Biloxi for the wild revels of Mardi Gras.
