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
November 5 My Tishomingo Park Visit. by Tanda
My husband & I visited the park last week as we were in the area. Park is beautiful as far as the nature, but needs some upkeep. The bathroom we were directed to was in very bad shape, the boat docks were falling down & unuseable. The nature trail really needs work as several of the foot bridges across some ditches have fallen in & rotten. We managed to climb up & down the ditch banks of a few of them as we saw where others had crossed. But we got to one that was really too dangerous for us to cross so we had to turn around & go back. I would think they would have someone checking the nature trail all the time for problems like these but we could tell from looking these foot bridges had been fallen in for awhile not just a week or two. We had been told it was the most beautiful state park in MS but we were not impressed with dis repair & neglected look. Not a place we care to visit again.

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!!!!
