Clear Creek Campground offers a great setting to enjoy active water sports at Sardis Lake. Five million visitors head to the lake each year for boating, swimming and fishing. The Sardis Nature Trail is a popular attraction at the base of the dam.

Natural Features:

Sardis Lake covers over 98,000 acres in the rolling hills of northwest Mississippi. The man-made lake sits on the Tallahatchie River at an approximate elevation of 400 feet. The campground is forested with bottomland hardwoods.


Sardis Lake offers an array of recreational activities, including fishing, boating, water skiing and swimming. A scenic trail near the campground offers great hiking and biking opportunities.

While the campground is not directly on the water, it is within a short drive to a swimming beach and boat ramp.


Clear Creek's 52 sites have electric hookups and some are equipped with water hookups. Flush toilets, showers and drinking water are provided. Younger campers love the park's playground.

Nearby Attractions:

The John W. Kyle State Park, across the lake from Clear Creek, offers a swimming pool, golf course and recreation hall. Just east of Sardis Lake is Holly Springs National Forest, where wildlife viewing is a popular activity.
