There are 2 Corps of Engineers park on Arkabutla Lake MS (near Hernando) south of Memphis. There is a Corps of Engineers park on Lake Okatibbee. Twiltley Branch. Water and electric sites. Abt $20 per night. Check www.recreation.gov
Big Creek Water Park (Pat Harrison Waterway District) is near Laurel, MS. If you need another stop in FL East Bank Corp of Engineers park at Chattahoochee FL is good too. A bit off I-10 but cheap. If you are seniors and have an America the Beautiful pass you get half price camping.

Suggest you get a good campground book (i.e. Woodall's or Trailer Life)..
Try to determine how many miles a day you are going to drive and then check out the campground listings by towns "around" that mileage.. or after lunch, determine how much farther you plan to go and then check campground book for possible c/gs. If you have computer access www.rvparkreviews.com is very good
and I plan most of our stops by those comments.
We also use KOA's if unsure of the area and we have Passport America which gives 50% off c/g fees (certain restrictions will apply).. they have a website and also a CD or campground book. Well worth the $44 a year, can be made up in about 3 nights stay. Benchmark was one of those parks and we paid a very small
amount in 2008 when we stayed.
By the time you return from your trip, you will be old pros. Have fun.
We tend to run that route a time or two a year as I still have family in Oklahoma. I would go to Little Rock and on to Memphis on Interstate 40, then cut over to Birmingham on Hwy 78. It is a 4 lane most of the way. Then take Interstate 65 south to Montgomery Alabama and then Hwy 231 to Dothan and on to Interstate 10 in north Florida. Then on to Vero.
This past summer we spent the first night at Ivy Cove Campground in Arkansas on I 40, then the next night at the KOA in Clanton Alabama, next night in Crystal River Florida and then home to Stuart Florida.
