Fishing & Boating


Holmes County State Park Lake is closed

Holmes County State Park Lake is closed to public access. The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) began draining English and Odum lakes during October of 2020 for a dam repair project. The campground and day use areas are included in the closure.

The lakes has been filled and restocked with fish once the dam repairs are complete. Other improvement projects are being planned while the facility is closed, such as building a new fishing pier and boat ramp.
