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.

This is another great Corps of Engineers parks where you find really nice campsites set on great waterfront setting. The campground sits on Enid Lake which is recognized as one of “One of America’s Top 10 Fishing Spots.” And since the park is just shy of 100 sites you don’t feel like it is not too big. Plan on staying here for a couple of days and relaxing in the outdoors. Stock up on supplies because there is not much around. Sites are really nice and spacious with paved driveways and patios.
They just added sewer with makes a full hookup at $20/night a total bargain. Each site has a fire pit, picnic table, bbq grill, small concrete stand next to bbq, and lantern crook. The bathhouse was modern with flush toilets with clean showers. Not all sites are level in fact we had to pass up a couple because of that reason. If you come in the off-season, there are plenty of sites not reserved so you can drive around and pick on using the self-pay system. Some sites have amazing water views if you are able to snag one of those you are in for a great stay. The campground is pretty hilly but the roads were easy enough for us to navigate in our 45’ RV and tow car .
The lake is very popular for fishing and there is a boat launch/fish cleaning station. We didn’t have fishing licenses but loved paddling around the lake. The North Mississippi Fish Hatchery(by the Enid Dam) is a fun place to visit and tour for very small fee. If you go into the town of Pope, the restaurant "The Place" offers good food set in a refurbishing an historic building.
This campground is huge! They offer full hookups and lots of sites with water views! There are several different “loops” within the campground. The majority of the sites are level and spacious. The closer you get to the water, the closer some of the sites get together, but not all. This place is very popular during the summer months with the boating crowd.
There are several bathhouses throughout the campground, but beware if you are needing to use them for showers! Not all of them are full shower houses, so you might have to walk further or drive to one with a shower.
The playground still looks to be the original from the 70’s. I do wish they would upgrade that for the families with kids.
There is a walking trail that says closed, but according to the camp host it is actually open. Wish I would have known that sooner as I love to hike.
There is a store near by with gas, live fishing bait and any last minute forgotten items. They have breakfast biscuits in the mornings!
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.
