Recreation and Enjoyment

Four miles to the north of Woodville on Highway 61 is the new Wilkinson County State Park which features a small lake for fishing, and trails for hiking and biking.  West of Woodville, on the Pond-Pickneyville Road to Louisiana’s Tunica Hills, is the Clark Creek Natural Area, a state park with over thirty waterfalls; and on Hwy.  24 to the east, Lake Mary, an oxbow of the Mississippi, where locals and visitors fish and water ski At the entrance to Clark Creek is the tiny town of Pond, with an historic General Store. The pond at Pond was a watering hole for teams of oxen drawing carts from Woodville to the military post of Ft. Adams (incorp.1798)on the Mississippi River, the historic port of entry to the Mississippi Territory in the years prior to the Louisiana Purchase.

The forests and lakes of Wilkinson county continue to beckon hunters, as they have for generations.  Deer, wild boar, coon, wild turkey, duck, squirrel, rabbit and doveare found in abundance.  The county is the most frequented for hunting in Mississippi.
