Wall Doxey State Park is a river runner's dream, with several hiking trails lining the shores, in addition to boating and swimming. For campers, there are 40 sites centered around a 60 acre, spring fed lake. These sites are about 50% primitive, while the other half contains concrete parking pads, fire pits, and picnic tables. These sites are all located adjacent to public restrooms, as well as coin-operated showers and a general convenience shop for last minute needs.
If you're looking to spend the night with your canine, make sure to bring a proper leash to keep them on throughout the evening. Over 11 miles of trail network is available at Wall Doxey State Park. These trails provide a varied experience for guests, ensuring that everyone will have a trail that suits their needs. Most of these paths explore the rolling hills, pine forests, and extensive miles of river shoreline that exist in the state of Mississippi.
If you're looking for a real challenge, maybe attempt the Mississippi Beach Trail. This particular path hikes down into a shallow river gorge, where you can explore several caves that were thought to be once inhabited by local native American tribes. There's also the ADA accessible Karen's Trail, a half-mile stretch of paved pathway that leads guests onto a concrete viewing deck showcasing several prominent local landmarks.
If you'd like to bring your canine along for your hike, make sure they stay on a leash throughout your day's explorations. In addition to the hiking network, Wall Doxey State Park has several miles of "Recreational Trails" that are reserved for activities like horseback riding and ATV racing. These recreational trails are generally off-limits to canines, due to the unpredictable nature of the area. Overnight guests can enjoy the area, as Wall Doxey State Park contains 64 traditional camping sites.
