My husband and I will be in Vicksburg, MS over Labor Day weekend. Neither of us are from anywhere close to the area, but we want to plan an awesome weekend of road trip and adventure. Help!

We like hiking and camping in beautiful areas, though we wouldn't mind more urban adventures. We have camping gear and a rental car. My initial thought was to camp in one of the national forests, like Homochitto and then go down an explore the Louisiana coast, but I am open to suggestions in any direction. So the question is:
What are some awesome sights within 5 hours of Vicksburg?
What is the hiking and camping like? More wilderness-y or more RV park style?
If you were going to drive along the Gulf coast, where would you go, what would you do and where would you stay?
We love food - we will travel for memorable meals! - any recommendations?
We've got four solid days to work with, from Friday to Monday, and this northern girl is really excited about the chance to experience some southern charm!
