Overview

North Abutment Campground is located on the north end of Grenada Dam on Grenada Lake. The campground is an excellent destination for boating and fishing.

The region is steeped in history, with an array of civil war landmarks. In summer, Grenada Lake is home to the annual Thunder on Water Safe Boating Festival. Featured events include concerts, a youth fishing rodeo, tractor pull and fireworks display.

Natural Features:

The campground is on the north shore of Grenada Lake. Several campsites face the water May through August, but the water level is dropped for water storage in winter, making the shoreline as far as a mile from the campground.

Grenada Lake is on the Yalobusha and Skuna Rivers in Mississippi. The man-made lake has about 148 miles of shoreline and holds 35,820 acres of water.

Recreation:

In addition to general lake activities like boating, fishing, picnicking and sailing, the region boasts a sports complex, baseball fields, an 18-hole golf course and a fitness trail.

Facilities:

This modern campground is equipped with 88 RV site pads, each with a parking apron and 50 amp electric and water hookups. The lake is accessible via nearby boat ramps, found just outside of the campground.

An amphitheater is located within the facility.

Nearby Attractions:

Visit the Haserway Wetland Demonstration Area, a 100-acre reservoir of bottomland hardwood trees, five moist soil management areas, two millet ponds and a 1.5-mile interpretive trail.

The campground is just five miles from the city of Grenada.
