Wall Doxey State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Mississippi. It is located off Mississippi Highway 7 approximately 7 miles (11 km) south of Holly Springs. It is named after Wall Doxey, a former U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator from Mississippi. It is one of the nine original state parks in Mississippi built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.[3]

Activities and amenities

The park features fishing on 60-acre (24 ha) Spring Lake, 18 primitive and 64 developed campsites, nine cabins, a cottage, a 2.5-mile (4.0 km) nature trail, picnic area, and two disc golf courses.[4] A narrow levee surrounds a third of the spring-fed lake which, in its shallows, has cypresses and dense vegetation.
