we are going to be at cabin 7 this year that was where we were 8 years ago when we started our NANA weekend and us 8 first cousins had a wonderful tme. we want to live there. so peaceful and yet so much fun it's always the Thursday after Easter and we have a ball, always eat at Mr. Wiskers on that weekend. cabins are really nice hope it is in good shape this year. it is our favorite cabin. CAN NOT WAIT TILL IT IS TIME TO LEAVE. CABINS ARE CLEAN AND EQUIPPED WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
There is a great open field where family and friends can play sports/games, and a lake with plenty of room for everyone who wishes to go fishing. Plenty of primitive camping sites near the water and great fire pits and facilities. The facilities are always clean and well-stocked, and when they are not, an attendant will take care of it upon request. The showers are in excellent condition. When I and my friends stayed, there was a suspicious character hanging around nearby, and when we called the ranger, he responded promptly and the matter was resolved. My only complaint would be the hiking trail, which is a bit of a swamp. I would highly recommend this park for a relaxing and/or exciting weekend getaway.
The park seemed to be nice. Maybe if you are in a cabin it would be fine. But if you primitive camp and want to sleep, don't even bother. No enforcement of the rules meant I was up all night because inconsiderate people blared music all night and were carrying on. The number they give you for the ranger goes to nowhere bc I called it starting at 11:45pm through 1:40am before giving up. If you are looking for a relaxing weekend camping with your family or just some friends, I would highly suggest you look elsewhere. Little black creek campground, Paul B Johnson, Flint Creek, all of these k have stayed at and had great experiences. I wish you the best and hope you can learn from my mistake.
We camped in our motorhome. The park was beautiful and clean. The pad we parked on was very level and all the utilities worked great. We loved walkling along the lake, chatting with other campers and the smell of all the campfires! The only thing lacking was decent TV reception but we lived through the weekend without it!
The park is always beautiful. The cabins are o.k., no luxury here. The entertainment you have to provide yourself. For example, we take our boat, fishing equipment, bikes, skates, board games, and food for barbeques. We always have a great time at Percy Quin!
(THE WEEK-END OF SEPT,11TH-2009, MY FAMILY & I RENTED (2) WAS CABINS IN P.Q. STATE PARK,THE CABINS, WERE NOT VERY CLEAN, AND THE OTHER CABINS' A/C UNIT WAS BROKEN, WE WERE SEPERATED,THE WHOLE WEEK END,NO SWIMMING,POOL IWAS DIRTY, AND 1/2 FULL, ITS VERY POOR MANAGE MENT,AND COMPENSATION WAS NOT ADEQUATE ! DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY!..........OR THE TRIP.
The park is beautiful with all it's trees and walking trails. The lake is very nice, I would just like to see some sand in the beach area. I think paying $5.00 to swim in the pool is a little steep for campers. $2.00 to $3.00 is more reasonable for people staying on the camp grounds. Other than that I would recommend this park for anyone wanting to be surrounded by nature. It really is a very peaceful and pretty State Park.

Wildlife and fisheries wrote a ticket to a member of our party because he was 24 and had not taken the Mississippi Boater's Safety Course even though it wasn't required where we live. There was no horse play, anything illegal or dangerous.....just boating.
The ice machine is broken, the lines were down to get a fishing license and they don't provide important information (like we'll be waiting on the bank trying to find a reason to write you a ticket for the following....)
Stay clear of Percy Quinn!! We're avid campers, but won't be back.
besides the fact that the park is ABSOUUTELY beautiful, thats pretty much it! it is oh so boring. there is nothing to do but hike (not my thing) or fish (we didnt catch ANYTHING! and we had a boat). as far the pool- broke and drained- and the beach- a 10' by 6' rectangle with some smashed rocks in it. its not even a sand box! (You could swim in the lake but there was some funky green gue on top of the water) Although the park rangers were EXTREAMLY nice when we asked "what else is there to do?" they mentioned a "pretty nice lodge with a game room in it"! when we arrived most of the games were broken and had been that way for years! then there was our lodge, with paper walls and plastic couches. it was dirty, the AC didnt work, and smelled like mold. The floor was so dirty i couldnt even take my shoes off! GROSS! i hated persey quinn and couldnt wait to leave. the rest of these reviews must have been written in 1992 when the park features actually worked.
This was the best time. We had children that ranged in age from 17 to 5 and all had a great time. The cabin #2 that we were in was great. I love the old atmosphere in the cabins and the lost in time of the park itself. We loved it so much that it is our plan to go back for the new year. Was there anything negative? If it was there was to much positive I dont remember what it was. Take your family here the memories will last a life time, the ones we made will.
