Enid Lake has been recognized as one of America's Top 10 Fishing Spots, with white crappie, bass and catfish available in abundance. The lake is the home of the world record white crappie, which weighed an impressive 5 pounds, 3 ounces. Fishing tournaments are held annually at the lake.
Hiking trails wind along the lakeshore and throughout the surrounding landscape, offering hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities.
Boating is a popular pastime on the lake, and boat ramps are provided at the campground.
Wallace Creek Campground offers 101 campsites, along with four large group picnic shelters. Modern amenities like full hookups and flush toilets are provided, and a playground and interpretive trail offer additional recreation opportunities. Picnic areas complete with grills and picnic tables make the area perfect for parties or family trips.
Enid Lake is part of a dam project on the Yocona River. The dam creates almost 16,000 acres of water for the millions of annual visitors to enjoy. An additional 44,000 acres of thick, green forests surround the lake, offering countless recreational opportunities for campers, equestrians, hikers and more.
Memphis, Tennessee, located about an hour away, offers plenty of famous tourist attractions.

Spacious sites with enough room between them to not feel crowded. multiple bathhouses spread around the campground the were very clean. many sites have a decent view of the lake. lake level was up so not much of the swim beach was exposed. day use picnic areas everywhere.
My favorite site is #72… feels private and is a concrete pull through site. Lakeside view and nice area for picnic :)
Very laid back atmosphere here. We really enjoyed relaxing in our lounge chairs, listening to the birds and watching the water. Enid Lake has an earthen dam and was built for flood control. We enjoyed the nearby North Mississippi Fish Hatchery and Visitors Center. The town of Batesville, MS is about 10 miles north on I-55 and has many stores for supplies. If you have reservations, be sure you know your site number since no one works at the gate. Even though it’s a bit hilly, all of the sites are level. Nice paved roads with most sites on large concrete pads with water and electric (50A). We stayed on site 28 which is a pull-thru on a paved pad and is waterfront with beautiful panoramic views of Enid Lake.
