1935–1938. 3946 MS 7, approximately 7 miles south of Holly Springs

A project of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), this park covers some 750 acres and includes the 60-acre Spring Lake, a lodge and offices, picnic pavilion, bathhouse and concession building, pump house, assistant manager’s house, and eight frame cabins, all built in the rustic manner advocated by the National Park Service. The lodge is constructed of randomly coursed stone, and inside, its main room has exposed heavy timbers and a huge coursed-stone fireplace and corbeled mantel. The pump house is a temple, embedded grotto-like in one of the park’s downslopes.
