Wallace Creek is a quiet, family-oriented campground situated along the banks of Enid Lake in the forests of northern Mississippi.

Natural Features:

Enid Lake is part of a dam project on the Yocona River. The dam creates almost 16,000 acres of water for the millions of annual visitors to enjoy. An additional 44,000 acres of thick, green forests surround the lake, offering countless recreational opportunities for campers, equestrians, hikers and more.


Enid Lake has been recognized as one of America's Top 10 Fishing Spots, with white crappie, bass and catfish available in abundance. The lake is the home of the world record white crappie, which weighed an impressive 5 pounds, 3 ounces. Fishing tournaments are held annually at the lake.

Hiking trails wind along the lakeshore and throughout the surrounding landscape, offering hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities.

Boating is a popular pastime on the lake, and boat ramps are provided at the campground.


Wallace Creek Campground offers 99 reservable campsites, along with four large group picnic shelters. Modern amenities like hookups and flush toilets are provided, and a playground, off-road vehicle trail and interpretive trail offer additional recreation opportunities.

Picnic areas complete with grills and picnic tables make the area perfect for parties or family trips.

Memphis, Tennessee, located about an hour away, offers plenty of famous tourist attractions.
