Pilgrim's Rest or Campground Cemetery

Submitted by Milton & Sandra Jenkins 

Located in Neshoba County, Mississippi. Go East from Philadelphia on Highway 16 past Cross Roads. The Cemetery is on private property north of highway 16. This is a virtually abandoned cemetery. It has no access road. You must walk a good distance through a pine tree thicket on uneven ground over several ditches to access the cemetery. Do not visit unless you are in good physical condition. If you do visit, apply insect repellent. There is no fence around the cemetery. Vegetation has over grown grave sites. Some twenty-five to thirty years ago (Ref to year 2003) unknown culprits kicked over and broke up the most headstones.
