Whitten Park / Fulton Campground
Whitten Park has 3 playgrounds, and a multi-use court.
There is one near the entrance to the first loop which is really nice. It has slides and climbing apparatus for the little kids. So many playgrounds we’ve seen don’t have much for the little kids to play on. There is clean sand to dig in as well.
There is a small playground in the second loop that has a slide and monkey bars. It’s the smallest playground of the three, but it’s especially nice if you are camping in that loop. Sorry, I don’t have a picture of this playground. I’ll try to get one next time we are there.
The third playground is in the day use area near the picnic pavillion and day use restrooms. We didn’t get to play there, but it looked pretty nice.
The multi-use court is near the gatehouse. It has basketball goals and a tennis/vollyball net. There are benches to sit on to watch your kids, and it’s lighted after dark until 10:00 PM. It’s surrounded by lots of grassy space to run around on.
Piney Grove Campground
New Site, MS
Piney Grove has two playgrounds and two multi-use courts.
The multi-use courts each have 2 basketball goals and a tennis/volleyball net. There are both behind a bathhouse and near the playgrounds. There are garbage cans and benches for sitting nearby. You can have a lot of fun on the courts. I like to draw on them with chalk and ride my bike around and around. The bigger kids play basketball, volleyball and tennis on them. Sometimes, they skate on them with rollerblades or skateboards.
They playgrounds are not the best I’ve seen, but you can still have some fun playing on them. There is a tire swing, a slide and climbing apparatus on each one. The slide is really the only thing for little kids, besides the sand. I usually carry my sand toys and build castles instead of playing on the equipment. Mommy likes to sit on one of the benches nearby in the shade to watch me. The most fun part of the Piney Grove playgrounds is the other kids. On the weekend, you can usually find someone there to play with.
