“North Abutment Campground, Grenada Lake, Grenada, MS”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Really nice COE campground on Grenada Lake. Several loops. Two on main lake and one on manmade lake. All are concrete pads with water and electric. No sewer, but each area has a dump station. We camped on the manmade lake, but would avoid this loop unless you like stepping in and stepping around goose poop! Don't know why these monster geese are still classified as federal migratory, they never leave. They are not so much of a problem in the other loops as they seem to like the protection of the manmade lake!

Otherwise this is a great, well-maintained campground.

The lake has excellent fishing, boating, skiing, beaches, etc.

Good restaurants in Grenada are Jake & Rips and The Lost Pizza Co.

“Nice Place”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

They have good camping areas for primitive camping and RVs. The fishing is not too bad here. You can catch Crappy, Bass, Striped Bass, Catfish, etc. They have parks with playgrounds for children and grills for cooking, and they also have pavilions for covered events, tennis courts, walking trails, golfing areas, etc. I don't like that you can't have a cooler with you on the beach but I do understand that people abused that with leaving trash on the beach. I did not like that you have to pay to park to go down to the beach. This is already provided in state taxes. I did not like the fact that there are no stores are restaurants at the lake.

“A wonderful place with something for everyone!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Anyone who visits Grenada Lake will love it. There is
something for everyone of all ages. A beach , boating, waterskiing, picnicking . People from all over the world come to Grenada Lake for the fishing. There are crappie and bass tournaments held here every year. People hold family reunions at the lake. Camping in tents to rv's. showers, bathrooms , playgrounds for the kids, tennis court, hiking trails. Like I said something for everyone. There are some folks in the state that bring campers or rv's and live on the lake from the time school is out until time fir school to start back up. In June there is a huge celebration on the lake. A fishing rodeo for the kids , arts and crafts show, a carnival, live music, a classic car show, fireworks.
If you choose to to visit you will not be disappointed!

“Great for fishing and Boating”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Biggest lake of the state. You will find one the biggest Crappy fish in whole country. Camping and Golf courses are also near by if you are interseted. I did not use the gold course though. Lots of restaurant and motel options in Grenada.

“The city's best asset.”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Grenada Lake is an under-utilized and under-appreciated destination. The surrounding state park is in decent condition, has nice picnic, hiking and fishing amenities and is also really pretty. The locals are some of the nicest folks you'll ever meet, too. Even if you're not there to fish, it's a great place to enjoy the outdoors.
