Overview

Whitten Park Campground attracts thousands of outdoor enthusiasts for picnicking, fishing and swimming on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. Easy access to three boat docks, nature trails and a sandy swimming beach with a gazebo overlooking the waterway, make Whitten Park a welcoming destination for campers.

Whitten Park is also referred to as Fulton Campground because of its location in Fulton, Mississippi.

Natural Features:

The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway extends 234 miles from the Tennessee River to the junction of the Tombigbee River in Alabama. The man-made waterway connects the nation's midsection of commercial water transportation with the Gulf of Mexico. Features include ten lock and dams, Gainesville Lake, Aliceville Lake, Columbus Lake and Aberdeen Lake.

Recreation:

Anglers can try their luck on the fishing dock or go off-shore in search of bass and crappie. Hikers will enjoy many nature trails, which weave through wooded wildlife habitats.

Facilities:

The campground offers 60 sites with electric and water hookups. The three camp loops provide easy access to playgrounds, laundry facilities and showers.

Nearby Attractions:

Tupelo, Mississippi, known as the birthplace of Elvis Presley, is 15 miles west.
