A convenient stop off I-20 between Georgia and Texas, Roosevelt State Park offers a range of outdoor activities in a peaceful, natural setting. Fishing, boating, swimming, and biking the flat, paved trails are all popular around scenic Shadow Lake. The park also features a pool with a water slide (for an additional entrance fee), sports fields, playgrounds, and nature trails through the surrounding woodland.
More than 100 developed campsites are available, with partial or full hookups. Sites are divided between two campgrounds on opposite sides of the lake. The east section is the original campground, with more mature trees, located close to the swimming pool and facilities. The newer west section may have ambient noise from the highway, but cell service is reportedly better. Some sites are directly on the lake and include a wooden deck.

In northeastern Mississippi among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Tishomingo State Park, named after Chief Tishomingo of the Chickasaw Nation, has a deep history and scenic beauty unique to the area. Archaeological excavations here have found evidence of human settlements from more than 9,000 years ago. The historic Natchez Trace Parkway, now a national scenic trail, runs through the park. Majestic trees, peaceful waterways, unique rock formations, and lush ferns and wildflowers all contribute to the park’s natural beauty.
In addition to hiking, nature trails, and fishing, the park includes a swimming pool, recreational fields, playgrounds, and a lodge. There are 60 developed campsites with electric hookups, a dozen primitive sites, central restrooms, and a dump station. Sites vary in size, and caution must be taken with slide-outs among the trees. Overall, Tishomingo offers a peaceful stay in a beautiful setting with a unique history.
