The first night after leaving Florida found The Great McDaniel Adventure at Sleepy Hollow RV Park in Laurel Mississippi.
To be honest, I did not like this park and would not come back, even if it was just for overnight. It is just one of those parks that I didn’t feel comfortable with.
Propane tanks can be filled at the office. What they don’t tell you is that you have to use a separate entrance in back of the office to get to the propane. This made for quite an interesting time for us as we tried to get turned around so that we could get back on Highway 11 to get to that entrance.
Sleepy Hollow is in a wooded setting, with easy access off of Highway 11.
The roads within the park are gravel. There is some blacktop, but it isn’t in all that great of shape due to erosion. There are sixty-three RV sites, both pull-thru and back in, and three tent sites. The RV sites are gravel and were somewhat level. The sites are big-rig friendly. Do watch for low branches, though!
There is one cabin for rent.
The owner told us that a tornado had come though last year and they were still doing clean up. Thunderstorms came and went through the night that we stayed, so everything was very soggy.
These is the section where clean up from the tornado has been done. From what I could tell, all the sites have fire rings for campfires, but not every site had a picnic table. The sites are fairly close to one another.
There were only a handful of other sites occupied, those were permanent residents.
There is a fishing pond where people staying at the park can fish for bass and bream. No fishing license is required. I didn’t get a picture of it, but there is a playground as well.
Swimming is not allowed in the fishing pond (go figure). There is a small swimming pool.
The restroom and laundry facilities. Their brochure says that the restrooms have been recently remodeled. I did not check out the restrooms or the laundry room.
With Highway 11 in front, and I-59 running along the backside, there was road noise to contend with. There are a few sites near the office but the bulk of the sites are down in the ‘hollow.’ The park has free WiFi, but the signal does not reach any sites in the ‘hollow.’
I am sure for most people, this would be an okay park for an overnight stay. It just wasn’t for me at all.
