Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northeast Mississippi, Tishomingo State Park is Mississippi's most scenic state park. The park is named for Chief Tishomingo. The Natchez Trace Parkway travels through the middle of the park and has an exit at milepost 304.5 to the park entrance.

Visitors to Tishomingo State Park can discover the same timeless natural beauty that enchanted Native Americans centuries ago. Tishomingo offers a unique landscape of massive rock formations and fern-filled crevices. Massive boulders blanketed in moss dot the hillsides, and colorful wildflowers border trails once walked by Native Americans.

Activities and recreational facilities include: picnic area with tables and grills, picnic pavilions, lodge facility, disc golf courses, compass course, hiking trails, playgrounds, multi-use field, volleyball court, and a swimming pool. Rock climbing is available by permit. Canoe trips and fishing are available on Bear Creek. Haynes Lake, a 45 acre fresh water lake, is available for fishing.

A day-use entry fee is charged for all day-use visitors. Day-use entrance fees are collected at the gatehouse. Entrance $4 and $.50 per person over 6 people.

The park offers 62 RV campsites, primitive campsite area, 6 cabins, 1 cottage, and a group camp facility. The campground is wooded and follows the edge of Haynes Lake.
