Overview

Overview

Dewayne Hayes Campground is located on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, on Columbus Lake in Mississippi.

The campground provides convenient access to the waterway. There is ample opportunity for visitors to fish, boat or spend the day sightseeing along the banks of the river.

The recreation area was named in 1986 for Pfc. Loyd DeWayne Hayes, a member of the 145th Engineering Battalion of the Alabama National Guard.

Natural Features:

The Tenn-Tom, as the waterway is known, 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.

Recreation:

With playgrounds, hiking trails, multi-use courts, picnic areas and educational programs, families have no shortage of activities to choose from at DeWayne Hayes.

Anglers can fish from the shore in search of bass, walleye, crappie, catfish and sunfish.

Additionally, hunters can seek out a diverse range of high quality habitats for upland game and waterfowl species along the Tenn-Tom lands.

Facilities:

Dewayne Hayes Campground features 110 campsites, including 100 standard sites with electric and water hookups and 10 tent-only primitive walk-in sites.

The campground is partially shaded, and sites have picnic tables, fire rings with grills, pedestal grills and lantern posts.

Visitors have the convenience of hot showers and laundry facilities, and anglers can make use of the fish cleaning station.

Nearby Attractions:

Columbus, Mississippi is right next door and offers antique stores, historic sights and other services and amenities.
