Tishomingo State Park Campground

Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Tishomingo State Park is steeped in history and scenic beauty.  Archeological 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 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.  - (excerpt from Tishomingo State Park brochure).

RV pads are located around the North shore of Haynes Lake, along with a chapel, a bathhouse and dump station.  Most RV pads have 50 amp service (confirm with reservation).
