With more than 100 campsites, we have numerous locations on and off the riverfront that will accommodate your needs. All of the campsites have water, sewer, and electrical hookups.

The campground features many amenities for families such as a playground, splash pad, basketball court, disc golf course, and recreational activities on the Jourdan River.

The Jourdan River also contains one of only two Blue Way Trails in Hancock County with the McLeod Park Campground being one of the many stops along the trail.

Nature Trail

The McLeod Park Nature Trail is a 1.25-mile self-guided trail that follows the banks of the Jourdan River before crossing over many of the river's old oxbow lakes.

The trail offers many opportunities for hikers to spot native species of birds within its dense canopy of indigenous plants and trees.

Disc Golf Course

Come out and enjoy the disc golf course in McLeod Park. This course will challenge you to be strategic with your shots as the baskets are located within the thick canopy of trees.

The course features 10 par 3 holes. With short pads on each hole, the course is friendly to both beginner and novice players alike. The campground does not have discs for rent so be sure to bring one with you.
