About: The beautiful hardwood forests of Holmes County State Park are home to an abundance of wildlife, and provide the scenic backdrop for a variety of outdoor activities. Built around two lakes covering 88 acres, the park offers such diverse excitement as fishing, camping and cabin rentals. Holmes County State Park offers easy access to the Interstate 55, which will bisect North and South Mississippi. The convenient location and diverse outdoor recreational amenities make Holmes County State Park a favorite retreat.

The 28 sites available for RV camping feature picnic tables and grills, water and electrical hook-ups, and a central sewage dumping station. A bath-house with hot showers and a coin-operated laundry are located in the developed camping area. The 12 site tent camping area features picnic tables, grills, and water in a hardwood forest setting located approximately one-quarter mile from the lakes.

Group camping for up to 100 is available in an air-conditioned dormitory featuring separate counselor's quarters and meeting rooms. Meals are served cafeteria-style in the dining hall, which seats 100. Campers must provide their own linens, towels, pillows, soap, and other personal items. Group Camp Meeting Room seats 25. The Group Camp Dining Room seats up to 100. The Old Group Camp seats up to 100. Reservations are required.

A system of interpretive nature trails winds through approximately four miles of the park, providing visitors with a close look at native plants, birds, and wildlife. An outdoor amphitheater located along the trail seats approximately 50 people and is available for use at no charge.

Holmes County State Park offers two fishing lakes, both well-stocked with bass, bream, and catfish. English Lake is equipped with a boat launch. Odom Lake has no boat launch area.
