Featuring a rare combination of pin-connected Pratt and Camelback truss spans, this formerly public bridge is still used by traffic as part of a privately owned camping area. As a privately owned bridge, but open to users of the facility, the bridge is posted with signs reading "Danger Cross At Your Own Risk." The bridge has a bent endpost, some bent pin plates, and some crudely welded rods as replacement floorbeam hangers. If on a public road, the bridge would likely be closed to traffic. However, it continues to carry traffic, with several pickup trucks observed using the bridge. The bridge is a highly significant bridge in the context of Mississippi, and it is a centerpiece for the area, and a star attraction for the camp itself.
