You can count on water in memphis,and in greenville. There is also a nice campground in greenville right after the the entrance to the port, you can get showers and a resupply if you can bum a ride. Contrary to rumors you cannot camp at natchez but you can get a room at natchez under the hill bar for sixty bucks. You can see it from the boat ramp. I just hid the canoe in the weeds. You can also take a taxi to get food. Be careful going through cairo I would not recommend stopping there. The barge traffic was the worst I saw on the whole trip. There is a campground on the atchafaliya. I did not stop there as I hit it midmorning on the second day. I was getting sixty miles a day on the mississippi, on the atchafaliya I was only getting around a HARD thirty five. There is a goat farm on your right around thirty mile mark on the atchafaliya if you see somebody in the yard stop and talk to them. They will let you camp take showers and all around treat you like family. Be careful of wing dams. Stay out of the way of the army core they do not appreciate you being on the river and can be downright hostile at times. You will have the time of your life.
