Barnett Reservoir Board looking to expand campground

RANKIN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The proposed expansion of a popular campground at the Barnett reservoir is back in the news tonight.the timber lake campground is just off the north shore parkway in Rankin county.

The 339 campground has a waiting list of 274 to get in.   About 50 per cent of those living there, are here permanently on a two year lease for $350 a month plus electricity. Overnighters pay $22 a night.  

Amy Hervey, a Rankin County resident who spoke at a public meeting Monday night, thinks that should change.


James Hall, a Timbercrest resident, told the public meeting, any expansion of the campground is ridiculous.


Billy Chambers, a frequent camper at timberlake loves it.

John Sigman, Reservoir Manager, favors Timberlake expansion to make more money.          

The 15-member reservoir board will decide on the expansion.
