Description
Tombigbee National Forest spans a total area of 67,005 acres of land in Northeastern Mississippi near Tulepo. Other cities and towns close to the forest include Houston, Starkville, and Ackerman. To access the park, you can use several routes including US 82, MS 12, MS 15, MS 25, MS 32, and MS 41. The park was established on November 27, 1959, and is administered by the U.S. Forest Service. 

Several features make Tombigbee National Forest an interesting place to visit. Some of these features include the hardwood forests and the upper Coastal Plain pine. Visitors can also get to enjoy Davis and Choctaw lakes along with the 26-mile Noxubee Crest Bike Trail. Furthermore, the forest is also home to prehistoric Mississippian-period mounds located at Owl Creek.

Besides these features, the park also houses several other amenities that the forest visitors can get to enjoy including two campgrounds, trails, scenic drives, boat ramps, and picnic sites. These facilities allow visitors to enjoy several fun and entertaining activities including hunting, camping, swimming, hiking, ORV riding, fishing, boating, mountain biking, and horseback riding. 

Like many other national forests, dogs are definitely allowed into the Tombigbee National Forest, although it is important to remember that some strict forest rules must be followed. Some of the rules regarding dogs are as follows. First, you are expected to always bag your dog's poop immediately and ensure that you get rid of the poop in the right manner. 

For your convenience, it is a good idea to bring poop bags from home. Secondly, you are also expected to always keep your dog on a leash. The leash should not be more than six feet in length. Dogs that are not on a leash should be kept in a secure enclosure. Third, visitors should always be aware of the areas of the forest that you can and cannot visit. You can get this information from the forest offices.
