Situated on the shores of Enid Lake, George Payne Cossar State Park is a sportsman's paradise. Most of the land around the lake and in nearby Holly Springs National Forest is open for public hunting, and is abundant in variety of game. Hunters are not the only sportsmen who will find their quarry in the area. The world record crappie, weighing in at over five pounds, was pulled from the waters of Enid Lake. These excellent hunting and fishing opportunities, combined with a variety of recreational opportunities and scenic natural beauty, make George Payne Cossar State Park the perfect family vacation spot.

September 22 A pleasant surprise
Just spent a quiet weekend here. Cabin was clean, roomy and had basic kitchen equipment. We fed inquisitive deer apples and watched a skunk steal our cricket box off the patio. Only downside was the lake level was low and the shoreline was very muddy, but the surroundings were lovely.
March 26 Save your money by gbaxt240
substandard facility would sum it up for me . had a week booked and left 2 days early , due to the drunks next door and restaurant closed 2 years ago , no ramps useable in Park. Asked to get bed linens changed and they said they did not usually do that no matter how long your stay was . I have stayed in State Parks in numerous states and this was by far the worst . I hope the state gets some funding to make some improvements and updates here .
A great retreat and affordable for all. Walking trails, wildlife, lakes and peaceful setting for the price of a hotel room.

March 12 Love this Park by concerned
I have lived in Oakland for 35 years. I have spent all my life going to Cossar Park. If it closes it will be like loosing a part of my childhood. I also take my children there now. I pray for it to stay open and continue serving our community.
February 2 Great place for family reunion by Tammy
We held out family reunion here for the 1st time in 2010 and plan to have our 2011 reunion here as long as the park stays open. It is an excellent place for our reunion as several family members come from out of town and the cabins are great for us to rent, gather, and visit. The pavillion by the pool is plenty big enough for all. The cabins have the basics for cooking and are better than a hotel room for about the same price.
January 31 do not close this park by teresa

November 2 One of the best parks in Mississippi by S. Rodgers, Byhalia MS
I have camped all over several different states and George P Cossar is one of the BEST that I have been to. It is by far one of the top 3 in Mississippi. I was devistatd when I heard that this park may close. Please keep this park open for all of the avid disk golf players as well as for all of the generations to come.It is beautiful and well maintained.
November 1 Love this special place

The cabin was excellent however housekeeping needs to improve. Silverware was dirty and so was the bathroom floors.
