9 Best Winter Cabin Camping Spots in Mississippi

Who says camping can’t be a cold weather vacation? If you’re sad to see camping season end in Mississippi, you should know that it never truly ends. From state parks to KOAs, there are dozens of places throughout the state that offer cabins for a warmer camping experience. Pack your gear and book a spot at one of these 10 best camping cabins in Mississippi. 

1. Brushy Creek Ranch, Gloster, MS

If you’re looking for quiet adventure, you’ll find it at Brushy Creek Ranch. This beautiful horse ranch has shelter for both you and your equine friends. You can choose from one of several rustic waterfront cabins, along with open and covered horse enclosures. If you don’t have your own horse, you can rent one from the ranch for an additional fee. With more than 40 miles of trails to discover, it’s the best place to spend a quiet vacation exploring and relaxing.

2. Red Wolf Wilderness Adventures, Brooklyn, MS

Though known as a hot spot for summer fun, Red Wolf Wilderness Camp is also enjoyable when the weather turns cold. Their fully stocked catch-and-release pond offers all the fishing you handle (included in your rental). Nestled in the De Soto National Forest, the park offers over 40 miles of trails to trek. The cabins are more spacious than other locations, and make your stay feel more like a home away from home rather than a rustic experience.

3. Trace State Park

For those who want to do more than enjoy the natural scenery, Trace State Park has a little something extra to offer its campers—the golf course. If you’re camping in a cabin, you can enjoy the 18-hole course with no green fees. It’s also a well-known place for fishing and hiking.
