Most People Have No Idea Mississippi Has A Lost State Park…And It’s Stunning
When it comes to state parks, Mississippi is definitely not lacking. The state is home to nearly two dozen parks, many of which are nationally-ranked. However, there’s one park that may soon be forgotten all together, which would be a real shame because it’s both unique and stunning.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
