Tishomingo State Park


Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Tishomingo State Park is steeped in history and scenic beauty. Archaeological excavations confirm the presence of Paleo Indians in the area now encompassed by the park as early as 7000 B.C.; the park takes its name from the leader of the Chickasaw nation, Chief Tishomingo. The famous Natchez Trace Parkway, the premier highway of the early 1800s and a modern scenic parkway, runs directly through the park. Today's visitors to Tishomingo State Park discover the same timeless natural beauty that enchanted the Indians centuries ago. Tishomingo offers a unique landscape of massive rock formations and fern-filled crevices found nowhere else in Mississippi. Massive boulders blanketed in moss dot the hillsides, and colorful wildflowers border trails once walked by Native Americans.

Lake was really bad low. The camping pads need to be 12ft wide and trees cut back from the pads to allow some sites to accommodate slides and awnings. The scenery is beautiful and worth going to see. Park rangers were super nice and helpful.

Great scenery. Not many good sites for rving but tent camping is good. Lots of trails to explore with incredible landscapes. Facilities are dated but functional. Small lake that's shallow but has good kayak fishing. Park offers canoe rentals. Several group cabins to rent. Worth a visit.

Great park, facilities are well kept, tent campsites are nice an far apart, trails are a definite moderate difficulty. Just wish there were more trails.

The staff is very rude! The lady at the front desk let my family go through without paying and when the park ranger asked us where the tag was we told him what the lady said and then he came back and told us that she dis not say that that we needed to come back and pay. So we headed up there and paid but the lady still was saying we didnt and called us LIARS i havent ever seen anything like it! But with all that being said the view was amazing and so very beautiful!!
