Arkabutla Lake


Hernando Point Recreation Area sits along Arkabutla Lake and Dam in the hills of northwest Mississippi. The dam project is on the Coldwater River and offers some of the best sailing east of the Mississippi River.


Families come to Arkabutla Lake to enjoy the great outdoors by fishing, boating, swimming, hiking and biking. Wildlife management areas around Arkabutla Lake boast a combined 30,000 acres of public hunting lands where whitetail deer, wild turkeys, quail and waterfowl roam. Several trails wind around the lake and throughout the nearby landscape. The Coldwater River Nature Trail System encompasses two hiking trails as well as an interpretive trail that helps educate hikers on the wildlife and ecosystem. The Swinging Bridge Nature Trail is also nearby, and includes a section of land that was part of the river prior to the dam being built. This trail is also an interpretive educational trail. Thousands of people each year visit Arkabutla Lake to go fishing. The lake is home to several species of native fish to Mississippi waters, such as largemouth bass, bream, catfish and crappie.


This year-round campground offers 83 family sites and one group day-use shelter, all with electric hookups. Amenities like flush toilets, showers and drinking water provide a comfortable camping experience for guests.

Natural Features

The campground is situated on the waterfront, among rolling hills forested with a shady mixture of oak, hickory, beech, sweet gum and birch trees.

Nearby Attractions

Nice Peaceful Campground

We really enjoyed our stay here. We had a great view of the lake from our site. Bathroom and Shower house felt clean. There were a lot of gnats on the sink counter but something I would expect from outdoor bathrooms so not a big deal. We did not see any type of park rangers or attendants on our stay. The only problem that may have solved was when we arrived at 5:00pm, our spot was reserved starting at 4:00pm, there was still someone parked in our spot. I kindly let them know we had the space reserved and they said ok and left within 20 min. Not a big deal just inconvenient. If they wouldn’t have left I’m not sure how the situation would have been resolved with no attendants. We drove around the rest of the campground and there were a lot of great spots with views. I did see a small swing set and basketball goal in a field but no real playground for kids. I did not see any walking trails or any activities but you can walk around at the lake. So if you have kids you may want to bring bikes, games, and other things to do. The campground stayed pretty quiet the whole time. At the front of the campground you do get slightly more traffic and noise of other campers coming in and out so if you want more privacy and quietness the back of the campground would be a little better I’m sure. Everyone we encountered waved, drove slow, and seemed friendly tho so we didn’t mind.

We will definitely be back to stay here again and look forward to it!

Great views!

We had a site right on the lake, with plenty of shade and full hook ups. Beautiful scenery and quiet.

Nice campground near Memphis

Decided to find a close, full hookup campground to do a shakedown trip on our new rig. Wanted a water vies, so we decided to try this place out. Spaces are all extremely level, some longer than others. Picnic area and fire pits are all kind of randomly placed. Some are in a good spot on the camp side of the trailer, but a few are on the complete wrong side of the camper. Recently updated to full hookup sites for all sites. They are nice connections as well. They were installing a new lift station to keep up with the demand after heavy spring rains proved to be too much for the last one.

Bathrooms are older but clean.

Only real complaint is that after heavy rains, there is standing water everywhere. Some sites are almost unusable with a mote all the way around you.

All in all, it’s a great place to get away… especially for full hookups at Corps prices.
