If You Live In Mississippi, You Must Visit This Amazing State Park

When it comes to state parks, Mississippi is definitely not lacking; there are over 20 scattered throughout the state. Of those, there’s one that stands out above the rest. One that offers visitors the chance to ride rapids, climb mountains, immerse themselves in Native American history, and experience scenery like nowhere else in the state. If you live in Mississippi, a trip to Tishomingo State Park is a must.

Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, this state park is filled with trails once walked by the Paleo Indians known to have occupied the area as early as 7,000 B.C. The park’s unique landscape, which includes massive rock formations and fern-filled crevices that can’t be found anywhere else in the state, means visitors are afforded the perfect combination of scenic beauty and history.

After surveying thousands of parks nationwide, Tishomingo State Park was listed on Reserve America’s “Top 100 Family Campgrounds” and the recipient of 12 other Outdoor Recreation Awards.
