Whitten Park

Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway

ATTENTION: Whitten Campground will be closed September 8, 2024 - February 1, 2025 for renovations. We are sorry for the incovenience, but hope you enjoy the park even more once work is completed.

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.

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