Tishomingo State Park is situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. The park is immersed in history and picturesque splendor. “Archaeological excavations confirm the presence of Paleo Indians in the area now encompassed by the park as early as 7000 B.C.” The well-known Natchez Trace Parkway, the premier highway of the early 1800s and a modern scenic parkway, runs directly through the park. Visitors get a chance to witness unique landscape of massive rock formations and fern-filled crevices found nowhere else in Mississippi, making them feel as if they are living in  prehistoric time.
