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.

Absolutely stunning park. Many RV pads with water and electricity around the lake and most of them are level. Nice little cabins for rent, tons of camp sites, a few pavilions you can rent and a nice playground and swimming pool for the kids. They even have an 18 hole disc golf course. There are signs indicating that there is top rope climbing and bouldering in multiple locations at the park but it was a little wet to venture out and see them. Definitely worth the stop!

This was our first visit and this park is absolutely beautiful!!! So much to see and trails to explore everywhere. The pad for our camper was concrete and almost level and we saw that most of the pads were in very good shape. Water and electric available and all with a view of the lake, which was up quite well when we went! Our only complaint is that of the three bathhouses, only one was in service and one that was partially in service. The one closest to our site was out of service. I understand problems arise, but it appeared this one had been out of service for some time. It would have been nice to have been notified by the host when we came in and to have seen on the website that not all bathhouses were usable. Thankfully we were prepared, but not all who camp, especially tent campers, have that option.

Fantastic location for solo campers such as myself, family & recreational use! Trails on site and surrounding area is serene with wildlife and great staff. Also very convenient access off the Natchez Trace. I'm hooked and will return.

We camped one night because we had all our work completed at Tiffin (or so we thought) and once you pay your bill at Tiffin you must leave. Anyway about the park. The park is beautiful. It is not well maintained. The bathrooms were sandy and wet. I get it, it's a park with kids and water but the rules say "no swimming or wading except in a certain area" and no one seemed to care. I went to a bathroom kind of near the 1800s cabin and it looked as if it was built in the 1950s. And speaking of the beautiful 1800s cabin, the roof has holes in it and it needs repairs now!! Water damage will destroy that wonderful structure. I love nature as much as the next person, but either kill the poison ivy along the trails or put up signs to warn people about it. It was all over. Also, occasionally there were 4x4 posts in the ground near a rock formation but nothing written on it, nor was anything on the maps to indicate anything of importance. I noticed what I believe to be lots of wild Hydrangeas and interesting roots like what you see in the mangroves, but nothing written about it. We have a class A RV, Many of the sites were small and uneven and appear to be washing away from erosion along the sides of the concrete. We eventually found a spot but we had to cut back several low branches so we wouldn't damage the rig. With work and money it could be a really great park.

Love the trails and camping here. If you want to rent a cabin I recommend making it in advanced they get full fast. There is a fee to just enter the park as well.
