National Forests In Mississippi



The Delta National Forest is a lush, green paradise located in the Yazoo Basin of the Mississippi River, offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy camping, wildlife viewing, and a multitude of recreational activities such as ATV riding and canoeing. Surrounded by beautiful Bald Cypress trees and other hardwoods, the Delta National Forest is the perfect place to explore nearby attractions such as the Mississippi Blues Trail and the B. B. King Museum.


The Delta National Forest glimmers like a great, green jewel surrounded by lazy rivers and spreading agricultural fields. The Delta is a large, contiguous block of bottomland hardwood forest, seasonally flooded timber, and small sloughs draining into the Big and Little Sunflower Rivers in the Yazoo Basin of the Mississippi River. It is the only entirely bottomland hardwood ecosystem in the National Forest System.


Enjoy camping, wildlife viewing, hiking, ATV riding, horseback riding, bird and butterfly watching, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, and fishing all within the Delta National Forest.


Facilities are spread throughout the Forest. There are four restroom facilities located along FS Roads 715, 717, 720, and 707. All sites are primitive and potable water is available at the Delta Ranger District work center on FSR 703.
