Mississippi State Parks

Monday, May 12th, 2008

The region of the Mighty Mississippi makes for a great holiday destination. With approximately 30 State Parks to choose from, you can be guaranteed one of the best vacation spots in the world. Mississippi State Parks are open year-round and offer you a myriad holiday activities such as a nature trail hike, relaxing by an open fire, fishing for Largemouth or Smallmouth bass, playing a round of golf at some of the world’s most breathtakingly scenic golf courses, getting wild and wet at the waterslides, boating, picnicking in the heavenly environs, camping under the clear azure of the Mississippi sky peeping through dense foliage, hunting for deer or wild turkey and cross-country skiing, sledding and ice-fishing when it’s the season for Father Noel to come calling.

Whether it’s summer, winter, autumn or spring there’s something for everyone to do at the numerous State Parks here. The scenic splendor of the place is unparalleled and diverse ranging from wooded ravines, verdant valleys and sparkling waters. Spring and summer witness valleys and slopes dotted with the blooms of bluebell, lobelia, trillium, yellow ladies’ slipper and shooting star amongst others. The diverse flora is complemented with as diverse a animal life within the state parks and river areas around them such as waterfowl, shorebirds, wild turkey, woodpeckers, eagles and numerous migratory birds whose lyrical songs fill the place with their music each spring and fall. White-tailed deer, gray squirrel, mink, gray and red fox, woodchuck, skunk, badger and muskrat are just some of the animals that can be found in the Mississippi state parks.
