Dwyane Hayes COE Campground, plus

                                                          Dwayne Hayes COE Campground,

            We drove 268  miles to this park in Columbus MS. We call to see if they had any openings. The very nice person that answered said come on in. They had many openings. We did get a site backed up to the water.

Don't forget I'm here

      The river in this area was narrow. This is part of the Tennessee Tombigbee waterway. The tugboats and barges were very close. It was neat and enjoyable.

      The site and roads are paved. We had 50 amp electric and water in a very long back in site. We also had a  large area with pea gravel, with a picnic table, grille, firering and small table for your own grille. There were 3 bathhouses each with 2 w/d's very clean. All this for  $11.00 a night with our America The Great pass. Less then 10 miles from Columbus MS, which has a lot shopping and restaurants. This is the nicest COE park we ever stayed at. Much area to walk a dog. Good lightning at night. Most sites are very long large.I shouldn't tell you all or the next time I want to go there there may not be any sites. This was May 2017
     There is a lock and dam for this part of the waterway called Stennis Lock and Dam

Going into the lock

The water is rising

And out, many feet higher. We  left here and stopped at Wal-Mart for a few things an as we pulled into our site the tug that locked thru was going by our site.

     We went to visit the Waverley Estate in the area, unfortunately it was closed.

There were many large mushrooms, that's my foot for sizing.
