Sheriff's deputies say 59-year-old Ronald Preston, Jr. had been staying at the Weather Rock Campground since mid-June.
Police got a tip that he was staying there and checked into whether he had registered as a sex offender in Gibson County.
Authorities say he was not registered and also had several outstanding warrants for failing to appear in other states.
