What to Do at
Leroy Percy State Park

The Leroy Percy State Park natural environment is ancient, formed by the shifting Mississippi River. Park activities include exploring the natural formations, like the cypress knees and hardwood stands, a testament to the endurance of nature over eons. There are plenty of other options to keep you and fellow campers busy, including disc golf, freshwater fishing, a playground and hiking trails. The park is one of two Mississippi state parks with a wildlife management area and a hunting season.

If you are fascinated by alligators, Leroy Percy State Park is the perfect destination. You can safely watch the numerous alligators in the lake from an observation tower. You may want to fish Alligator Lake or spot birds that call the Mississippi Delta home. Hiking the nature trails allows you to do two things at once: enjoy the unique features of the delta, like a cypress swamp, and be on the lookout for wildlife.

Inside Leroy Percy State Park

The primary thing that draws people to Leroy Percy State Park is its solitude. In the depths of 35-acre Brushy Lake, a body of water left from the days when the Mississippi River ran through this area, are the Bald Cypress trees that bask in the waters. Boats weave through this lake with anglers pursuing bass, bream, and catfish—recreational trails run throughout the park visiting small notches under overgrown brush where wildlife live. An observation tower stands above a section of the lake area where you can spot alligators roaming freely.

Fishing Fishing

Alligator Lake, a 16-acre oxbow lake, is stocked with channel catfish, largemouth bass, redear sunfish and bluegill. You may also catch bream and magnolia crappie. There is a T-shaped fishing dock if you do not want to fish from a boat. Boaters will find a boat launch near the campground, and the reservation fee includes its use. You must purchase a Mississippi fishing license and can buy one for a small fee at the park office.

Nature Watching Nature Watching

On the nature trail, you will find an abundance of delta wildlife, like herons, doves, northern cardinals, woodpeckers, chickadees, great egrets and so many more birds that call the delta home. Two observation towers enable safe viewing of the alligators, which are abundant in Alligator Lake.

Flora and Fauna

The park is filled with tall bottomland hardwood stands that have prevented abundant ground plant growth due to blocking the sun. However, the cypress trees dripping with moss are iconic in the USA’s south, and the ancient oak trees are beautiful and a must-see. Alligator Lake is appropriately named because it does have plenty of alligators. Other wildlife you may see includes deer, wild turkeys, ducks, squirrels, doves and various snakes.

Hiking Hiking

Alligator Lake Trail is a 3.2-mile route that winds around the lake and then loops through a delta hardwood forest. On your hike, you will walk over boardwalks; visit a swamp; and see the impressive, moss-dripping oak trees. As you hike by the cypress swamp, consider what famed explorer Hernando de Soto saw when he traveled through this area in the mid-1500s.


Alligator Lake is approximately 10 acres and has a boat launch. You can use your boat for fishing or cruising the lake to enjoy the unique scenery. RVers also bring their kayaks and canoes to have fun on the lake.
