Report: Getting a reservation at this site can be costly. I made reservations for 3 nights here. The website was not clear on number of units per site, so I make another reservations to comply, then others wanted to join me so I requested spaces where we can move and be closer together, not to mention that I was getting a 4.00 per site be night saving, I thought. But to transfer I was charged 10.00 per site to do that without being told it would cost me 10.00 per site to transfer to another spot in the park and then I tried to cancel and that cost me 10.00 a site to do that also. Now the want to say they will not refund my money, but give me a voucher for the remainder of my funds. I do not nor will I stay at any Mississippi State Park! I want my money returned!
