North Abutment CG (Grenada Lake COE), Grenada, MS

Date of Stay:  Thursday May 23 - Monday May 27, 2013(4 nights)

Rate:  $10/night (Access Pass discount)

Website:  North Abutment CG
   4823 Scenic Loop 333
   Grenada, MS 38901

Description:  Rolling hills in Mississippi but all the sites are level concrete pads with water and electric (50A).  There are three circles each with their own dump station and paved roads.  Loop 1-36 over looks Grenada Lake with several sites having nice water access.  Many have great views but I really liked 14 and 17.  Loop 37-61 used to be the tent loop so the sites were a bit closer and the road was less big rig friendly but still quite nice.  We were in site 50.  The other loop, 62-88, over looks a pond with a swimming area and two fishing piers.  Each loop has 10 first come sites so about 60% are reservable.  If you have reservations, remember your site number since there is no one working at the gate (there is none).

Activities:  Glad Gin got a reservation about a month prior because this place was full of families for the Memorial Day weekend.  We just relaxed and did a little people watching.  The cg is right next to the earthen dam that you drive over to go to the town of Grenada.  Grenada Lake is quite nice with a few day use areas and a State Park CG on the banks of the Outflow Channel.  There is a Visitor Center on the other side of the dam that has a nice view of the dam and lake.  Within the cg, there is a dam to form a pond.  You have to drive over that dam to get to one of the loops.  Kinda crowded but a nice place to ride bikes, at least all the kids thought so.  Golf carts are popular with the locals.

Trash and Recycle:  No recycle and only noticed one dumpster at the exit.
