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.
