Excellent hiking. Primitive camping sites available, but are developed with fire rings & mingled in with RV camping. Cabins in park as well
Tishomingo SP is a short drive for us from Memphis. We wanted to give it a shot and booked a site (#32). We were self-contained in our RV and thank goodness because the nearest bathhouse was a hike! The campground was ok. Our site was level. Fire ring, picnic table, etc were fine. We booked there because of the swimming pool. It was one of the first weekends it was open and the pool area was in serious need of some TLC. Pool was fine and the kids loved it, but the chemicals in the water destroyed mine and my wife’s smart watches 😳.
We barely hiked and had to ride out a thunderstorm but we didn’t regret our trip. I don’t believe any sites had sewer. The circle at the end would be great to reserve with a group of friends (assuming you’re self-contained). All sites have access to the lake and if you had a canoe or kayak, it’d be easy to access.
Overall, it’s not the best park I’ve been to but it’s not the worst. Not bad for $22/night.
We went camping here in May 2019 before Memorial Day and it was so peaceful and beautiful. We were fortunate enough to get a spot right on the lake.
It is such a perfect place to get away from it all.
We were there for 5days . We got on the Natchez Trace parkway. Also we went to Tupelo.
The bathrooms were not very clean but we were there off season and had a skeleton crew. But the park itself was beautifully decorated. They also have disc golf.
Make sure you bring bug spray and check for ticks.
If you have a bike it’s a great place to ride.
Please consider going there the town itself had a tornado go through it and could really use the tourism. I called the park and they said the park itself was not touched by the tornado and had no damage.
It is the perfect park to social distance the spots are not close to each other.
Campsites were very nice and spacious. Bathrooms clean and functional. The only problem is it is hard to tell which trail you are on by using the map provided. Considering the lack of funding for MS state parks, this place is an absolute gem
I’ve been to Tish State Park several times and each time it’s better. Tish never disappoints. From wicked rock formations to crystal clear streams, this State Park has a lot of beauty and wisdom to offer. There are several small waterfalls that are scattered around that add to the natural beauty of the area.
Ill start with amenities. The bathrooms are nice and clean. Little dated externally but regularly cleaned. A lot to do in the park! Hiking, fishing, kayak/canoeing, swimming, and disc golf. The park rents kayaks and canoes. Reservations recommended. The campsites are decent. They have primitive or water/electric. We always opt for the RV sites. Bring ant spray! Major ant problems every time we have camped here! One of my favorite “local to me” campgrounds! Would get 5 stars if the would mow more frequently. Grass areas always seem to need to be mowed when we go! Pool is well kept and clean. Fun disc golf course. Beautiful, rustic cabins are an option here as well. Hiking is a must here. Numerous trails from novice to difficult.
Nice quiet campground. Very clean facilities. Well maintained state park and a very friendly and welcoming staff. Lots for everyone, young and old.
We have traveled here 2 times to vacation. We stayed a week in one of the cabins at the park. The park is beautiful from the swing bridge, rock formations and lake. There are also plenty of outdoor activities to do… Hiking, Frisbee golf, fishing and sight-seeing. We truly enjoyed our stay.
We've visited Tishomingo State Park twice in the last few months. The first was in February when we stayed at the cabins. They have big porches, a kitchen, bathroom, and two beds which was perfect for two couples to visit. They are quite old, but it adds to the charm of the cabins. We had a fire in the fire pit at night, played disc golf, hiked, and walked down to the river to sit a bit. Such a nice weekend!
Easter weekend we took our camper to Tishomingo State Park. It was a lovely time despite the rain on Friday night! We spent one afternoon playing disc golf and hiking. The hiking trails are lovely! Our dog enjoyed it too. On Easter weekend, there is a huge Easter egg hunt for children which drew a lot of people.
We stayed on site 61. The spaces are all on or near the water. There’s plenty of wood to gather for campfires. The park has beautiful hiking trails and the ride down the Natchez Trace Parkway to get there is a must take drive, free of red lights, billboards and traffic with many amazing points of interest along the way. Highly recommend!
