If you’ve been browsing this website for any length of time, you’ve already noticed that Mississippi features a wide variety of outdoor activities. Foremost among the natural venues for such pursuits are state parks in Mississippi and many local parks.
If you’re in the capital city, check out LeFleur’s Bluff State Park, home to lazy fishing on May’s Lake and the aquariums and other exhibits of the Mississippi Natural Science Museum. The park also includes a 9-hole golf course, an 18-hole disc golf course and one of the best playgrounds a kid can imagine. Plus, ample space to simply picnic and relax.
Just outside Hattiesburg lies Paul B. Johnson State Park, a sprawling natural wonder and shining example of one of our state parks in Mississippi. This state park features disc golf and ample space for camping, RVing, hiking, biking and more.
For something a little different, try historic Vicksburg National Military Park where the 16-mile tour road offers access to museums, exhibits, more than 1,340 monuments, a restored Union gunboat and the Vicksburg National Cemetery as well as plenty of opportunities for enjoying nature.
Of course, these are just a few examples of the many state parks in Mississippi, historical landmarks like Vicksburg National Military Park and others you’ll find scattered across the state.
