Leroy Percy State Park RV & Campground Guide

Mississippi

The Mississippi River was dubbed a "meandering river" before the Basin Levee System controlled its flow. Leroy Percy State Park, which is about 5 miles from Hollander, MS, is evidence of the river's history. At this park, you'll be able to see the remains of an active river, including the wildlife, cypress trees, and the lakes which are now fed by small rivers and streams. Vicksburg, Mississippi, 70 miles to the south, and Greenville, 23 miles north, were left high and dry by the last "meander" of the Mississippi River in 1878. Hollander's separation from the river by 10 miles created the area in which Leroy Percy State Park lies. While some visit the park to fish or hunt, most come to enjoy its untouched beauty, solitude, and wildlife observation.
