Report: Stayed at cabins. Bed was a full size, need to be upgraded to a queen size. Cabin was rustic inside, but came with all of the modern needs. This was a great get a way. Fishing on the new pier was great. Walking trail needed some maintenance. Park Rangers were great. Wished they still had the paddle boats. Your GPS will get you lost in this area. This is confirmed by the Park Ranger and myself. Going back this year. All and all great place and not far from home.

Report: No swimming allowed (since 2005 incident at another MS state park per ranger), but fishing still going on. Took inner nature trail; no obstacles, though briars are trying to encroach the path. Best parts to me were small feeder spring at SE end and walking bridge at W end of lake, but the two overflow areas could be explored, too. As expected, mosquitoes are thick in the wooded areas.

Report: we have been going there for family reunions for the past few years. they do offer fishing and a nice, but poorly kept nature trail. the paddle boats have been locked up, and the swimming area shut down. not a bad place if you want to want to just sit in the shade.
