Well, sure, Aardvark! Where did you get rousted?
But are you looking for a place to backpack for an overnighter? If so, you may either have to travel a little bit, or stealth camp. There are lots of places for stealth camping, and there are some National forests not to far from here.
But if your just looking for a closeby campground, just head about 6 miles west towards Pontotoc on Hwy 6/278. Go just a few miles past the Lee county/Pontotoc county line to Trace State Park. I hike the woods there all the time, hang in those woods ( although overnighting is, if you ask the authorities, is not allowed) and hung in the campgrounds with no hassle so far. They have RV and primitive campsites, and I have hung in both. Or you could camp in the campgrounds and day hike in the woods all day. If we can be off on the same time, I can show you around out there if you would like. Just be prepared: sometimes my aching feet really slow me up.
Where are you stationed? Are you talking about something in the military( not likely)? Are you here with Toyota?
If you are looking for a good place to backpack and over night without having to stealth, go 90 miles east past Hamilton to just north of Double Springs, and enter the grand Sipsey Wilderness.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
