Chickasaw state park and the surrounding Chickasaw State Forest comprise more than 14,000 acres. Part of the acreage has been developed for intense recreational use, and it is in this segment that the three state park campgrounds lie. Fortunately for us, the tent camp area is located in a picturesque, hilly section along the park’s Lake Placid. Lake Placid offers water activities just a short walk from the campground. Horse, hiking, and motor trails spill out from the state park into the adjacent state forest, offering plenty of paths to roam.

Overcrowded with tourists, almost no campsites available upon arrival. No hiking except for a very short trail (1.5 mi), and on it you can see and hear cars and see campsites.
