Camping in Mississippi

Mississippi is a state for all those who are wanderers at heart. From lush, forested Appalachian foothills to expansive Delta horizons to coastal roadways lined with live oaks, you’ll find something new to discover on every mile of your journey. With 9 national parks and 25 state parks, Mississippi has experiences for everyone.

What is the best season for camping in Mississippi?

Like many of the southern states, camping season in Mississippi is (almost) year-round. Probably best to avoid January trips unless you’re willing to bear some colder weather. Spring and Fall offer mild to moderate temperatures, whereas Summer brings with it familiar southern heat and humidity.

What are some must-do outdoor activities in Mississippi?

There are a wide variety of fun and adventurous things to do and sites to see in Mississippi! The only one of its kind in this part of the country, Flora’s Petrified Forest has been 36 million years in the making. For hiking and biking enthusiasts, the Tanglefoot Trail spans 43.6 miles, and takes adventure seekers on a history-filled journey through fields, forests, meadows, and wetlands, navigating the same paths as the Chickasaws and Meriwether Lewis. Last here but certainly not least, Clark Creek Nature Area, one of Mississippi’s “most beautiful outdoor treasures,” encompasses more than 700 acres comprised of steeply sloping loess bluff hills, a mixed hardwood and pine forest, and more than 50 waterfalls.

What are the top events and festivals in Mississippi?

A tradition since 1929, the Blessing of the Fleet in Biloxi marks the beginning of the fishing season for shrimp fishermen, this event includes a seafood cook-off, street party, Shrimp Queen pageant, and the coronation of a Shrimp King and Queen. For those looking to immerse themselves in local cuisine, don’t miss the Slugburger Festival. Pretty much every Mississippian has heard of the slugburger, and for over 20 years, crowds have gathered and the festival has grown to include live entertainment, carnival rides, the Slug market, the Slugburger Pageant, and, of course, the Major League World Slugburger Eating Competition. And what would a trip to Mississippi be without experiencing the blues? Considered one of the nation’s most important musical events, the Mississippi Delta Blues and Heritage Festival is meant to celebrate the state’s contributions to the world of music. In addition to a number of live musical performances, the event also includes a street festival, family day, and contests.

What are the best state and national parks to visit in Mississippi?

Of all of Mississippi’s state parks, Tishomingo is by far one of the most popular – and for good reason. Over the years, the park has received numerous awards for everything from its impressive canoeing opportunities to amazing hiking trails. J.P. Coleman State Park sits atop a rocky bluff overlooking the Tennessee River - venture further into the park and you’ll find the 47,500-acre Pickwick Lake. The gorgeous lake is perfect for all sorts of water activities and even features a 50’ waterfall. And the St. Catherine Creek Wildlife Refuge, at over 24,000 acres, is perfect for fishing, hunting, photography, hiking, and bird-watching. And thanks to extensive management programs, the refuge provides an excellent winter habitat for waterfowl, making even the cooler months a great time to visit.
