Bethel Bicycle Trailhead and Camp is located in the De Soto National Forest in Mississippi.
This is primitive camping with no water, trash cans or hook-ups and the stay limit is 7 days. There is a clean vault toilet on site though. Campsites are on a first come, first serve basis and are unnumbered.
We had 4G cell service on both our Verizon and AT&T with our booster.
There is only one site with a picnic table and fire ring. This camp is not that large, but any size rig could fit here just not too many. Plenty of spots for smaller rigs and tenting though. When you find a spot you like just park your ride.
You can get potable water and dump trash at Airey Lake just down the road. Wiggins, Mississippi is only about 20 minutes away with a super Walmart, laundromat, fast food and all the other facilities you may need.
Camp in designated areas only and quiet hours are between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Place campfires in rings only and please don’t leave them unattended. Leashed pets are allowed just please pick up after them.
This is a quiet and clean camp, but like everywhere else in the area it’s quite busy on the weekends.
The highlight of this place is all the amazing trails that literally start right at the camp. The trails are designed for mountain bikers and hikers and they are glorious. There are a total of four different mountain bike trails of various lengths and difficulty.
Met a fellow traveler who was hauling a gypsy wagon behind her Class C. She was repainting it while camping there and it looked awesome. She sells coffee out of it at events she attends and stores her Harley in it when she’s not riding. I don’t know what I did with the pics I took though.
Always follow the Leave No Trace Seven Principles and try to leave your camp nicer than you found it. Please research campgrounds before visiting. Rules and regulations may have changed since we stayed there.
