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.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 11 my only state park by Lonny
been going there for years,my first visit was over forty ago.still love going there.
June 27 Beautiful memories by Ida Groves
My mother discoved this jewel of a park when I a young child of 8. Today I am 42 and still in love with this park!!! We have spent several weekends here in cabins and roughing it in tents growning up. When my children were young, I introduced them to the beauty also and every Spring Break we would go there if only for just a day. My son was able to over come his fear of heights and crossed the swinging bridge alone after many years of struggles to do so. He enjoyed the rock formations and hikes on the oppisite side of that bridge and the fountain of fresh spring water flowing gently to take a sip on your walk beside the river. There are several small waterfalls the kids would get behind and we took amazing photos through out their lifes in the rustic settings. The pond behind the cabin covered in lilly pads is beautiful and the trails that lead up to the rocks that form a cave is a big adventure to a child. they can go inside and pretend to be an indian. This is the place to go to for family fun and time away from the hussle of todays computer filled world and get back to nature. Not much cell phone service! YEA!!!! They do need more litter cans and responsible people to pick up after themselves. It is very sad that humans have let this park become littered. Please take a garbage bag with you and take out what you take in and maybe pick up a little also. We did! Every hand helps!!!! Thanks!!!!
February 24 Real pretty! by G.J.Knight II
The park it self is rich with its beautiful rock formations and history. The facilities on the other hand were not maintained and run down three comfort stations one working shower with cold water.
February 15 Do not feed the racoons by land2lakes
We always stay in one of the cabins and they are so beautiful. I have to say that the mattresses need replacing as they have gotten difficult to sleep on, but other than that this is such a great place to stay!!
June 8 Peaceful place by Teresa R
We just love it. Camped there several times and did the canoes several time. Very peaceful.
March 20 beautiful
I admit i hav not been to many places, but as a fan of hiking and walking i loved it.the scenery often changes from beach to forest to a small waterfall coming out of the rocks.it has never been too loud or crowded.i see it as a friendly escape to take it easy or push yourself with some excitement
January 31 Spent Honeymoon There by Nick and Debbie
My husband and I spent our honeymoon there in Dec. 1975. We were the only people in the park. We had Cabin 6 (rustic) and when we got there, a fire had been started and the mood was out of this world. We took our children back when they were young and we had a ball! I wanna go back!
January 4 We love this place!
Tishomingo is our favorite place to go when we need a nature fix. The cabins are wonderful, the staff is knowledgeable and helpful, the park itself is paradise. If we could live here, we would.
