Mississippi’s State Lakes and Parks Offer Accommodations for Hunters
JACKSON - Each year thousands of anglers and campers take advantage of the many convenient and affordable overnight accommodations offered at Mississippi's state lakes and parks. Hunters should also take advantage of these conveniences when making plans for a hunting trip. State lakes and parks are located in each region of the state and offer RV hook ups, primitive camping sites, and cabins near Wildlife Management Areas, National Forests, and National Wildlife Refuges. Whether you are looking to stay nearby for your early morning hunt or desiring to also enjoy the scenic views and a campfire with friends and family, state lakes and parks can definitely enhance your hunting trip.
Calling Panther Lake, for instance, located in Copiah County, offers 23 camping pads with electrical, water, and sewer hookups within easy driving distance of public hunting opportunities in both Central and Southwest Mississippi. Roosevelt State Park, surrounded by over 170,000 acres of public hunting land, also offers a variety of accommodations and amenities for visitors to many public lands in east central Mississippi.
Hunters, make sure you enjoy all that Mississippi has to offer when making your hunting plans this season.
