Elmer's Hill COE, MS

 elmers hill01

Elmer's Hill Camping Area (COE) is located just below the Sardis Lake Dam near it's west end. It's a small area, currently closed due to budget costraints. Although the COE says there are six sites, I saw only five when I walked through. We were staying at nearby Oak Grove COE Park and I walked over one morning to check out this little spot.

With the area closed for the foreseeable future, one finds the gate closed and locked. I talked to a COE ranger who felt Elmer's Hill would be closed for at least a couple of years.

Date of visit: March 2014

Walking up the hill, one first comes upon site 1. From the looks of the downed branches and lack of raking, the area has been closed for a spell.

Next up the hill are sites 3 and 4 - I didn't see any site 2.
