Piney Grove COE, MS

 pineyg1

Piney Grove Recreation Area is located on the west side of Bay Springs Lake, about 18 miles SW of Booneville, MS. It's a fairly convenient stop along the Natchez Trace Parkway.

We had about 90 sites to choose from. It wasn't an easy choice, thanks to many great sites the park offers. We ended up on #139, with the lake behind us.

Date of visit: Mar 2007

pineyg3
Sites 10 and 9 have a fishing pier right behind them.

pineyg4
Site 17, here with a blooming dogwood, looks over the lake.

pineyg5
If you're taveling with friends, there are a few double sites, such as 53-52 shown here.

pineyg6
Sites 42-44.

pineyg7
Among the non-reservable sites are 69 and 68.

pineyg8
There are three modern, clean bathhouses in the campground. The pull-through on the right is site 73.

pineyg9
Most sites are well-shaded, but there are a few that offer a more open setting. The BT Cruiser in the background picked site 79 so he could use his Datastorm dish.

pineyg10
Another double site - 91 and 91A.

pineyg11
I'd rate 108 and 109 as the best sites in the park, due to their view of the lake.

pineyg12
In the summer visitors can enjoy day-use area of the park, including a picnic and game area.

pineyg13
The beach is just a short walk from the campground.

pineyg14
If you have active kids, there's a nice playground located beside site 31.

pineyg15
Fishermen will find two boat launch ramps: on in the day-use area, and this one in the campground.

pineyg16
Bay Springs Lake is part of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, so one gets occasional views of passing barge traffic.

pineyg17
Sunrise over the lake, right from our site.
