When will you open?
We are working hard to have our campground up and going by October 15, 2021! Our campground reservation software up and going now, and reservations for dates after October 15, 2021, can be made now. This software allows you to pick your site and reserve it online. There is also an interactive map, showing the types of sites available. Visit https://bookyoursite.com/campgrounds/purdie-creek-campground for more information.
What are the check-in and check-out times?
Check-in is at 1:00 p.m. CST, and Check-out is at 11:00 a.m. CST. Please give us a call or send us an email if you will be arriving after dark and need assistance locating your site and/or backing into your site. We will be glad to meet you at the campground to assist. If you arrive during business ours, our office is located at Site No. 1, directly across of our main entrance.
What is your cancellation policy?
We have a $10.00 cancellation fee on all cancellations. If you cancel at least 48 hours prior to your check-in time, you will be refunded your cost less the $10.00 fee. If you cancel within the 48-hour window prior to your check-in time, any deposit paid will be forfeited up to a maximum of $50.00.
What is your policy for pets?
We love pets! There are no additional fees owed if your pets camp with you. We do ask that pets are taken into the woods beyond the walking trail to do their business. Please pick up and dispose of any poo near your campsite.
Are you a full-hookup campground?
Yes! Sewer and water is available at each site. We do not have a dump station at our campground.
What type of electrical supply is available?
Each site offers 50 amp electrical service. If your unit uses only 30 amps, a 50M/30F adapter will be needed to lower the supply from 50 amps to 30 amps. If you do not have an adapter, we loan these to our campers upon payment of a $25.00 security deposit. This security deposit is 100% refundable when you return the adapter to us.
Do you give any discounts?
Yes. We offer current and retired military campers and veterans a 10% discount, and we offer a 5% discount to anyone over 65 years of age. Please just show us your military, DOD, or veterans card for the military discount and a photo ID for the senior discount,
Do you have a laundry mat or a bath house and showers on-site?
Not yet. We have plans to add these to our campground in the future. Laundry mats are located in Grenada, MS, on Highway 51 near the Donut Shop and Highway 8 West near Cross County Seeds.
Do you sell ice or other supplies?
No, we do not currently sell any supplies. Bagged ice and snacks are available 1 mile South of the campground at the Ole Corner Store. They also offer fresh cut meats, salads, and sandwiches and offer breakfast and plate lunches Monday-Friday. Call 662-294-0835 with questions or for the daily lunch menu. Groceries are sold at the nearby Dollar General on Papermill Road and at our local grocery stores, Spain's, Grocery Basket, and Wal-Mart.
Can we scavenge for firewood?
Absolutely! Fallen sticks and limbs can be collected from the land surrounding the campground. Please do not cut any limbs or trees but you may pick up what has fallen. Do not go beyond Purdie Creek on any side of the campground as this land is off-limits to all campers.
Is there a church nearby?
Friendship Baptist Church is 1 mile south of our campground at the end of Geeslin Road. Your are invited to attend services on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. Please check the website for times and activities.
