Nice place to visit anytime but especially true during times of high water flow. Tennessee - Tombigbee waterway is running with gates releasing maximum flow to keep up with the monsoon. Two river barges pulled away from their moorings and pinned themselves against the spillway...More

Large area that seems perfect for family reunions and picnics in general. Wished we could actually see the lock area which was not accessible from the park side. Watched a couple of men fishing below the dam.

Great place to go have a picnic, play frisbee or teach your kids how to ride a bike. Educational to look at the lock and dam and see the water flow and different levels.

This is a really nice park to visit. We didn't fish, but enjoyed looking around. We were able to see a boat go through the lock, and it was fascinating to watch.

I thought Stennis dam and lock was a great place to visit. You can walk around to stretch your legs and get some fresh air. It's also a great place for kids.

This recreation area has a parking lot on the top of a hill from which you can observe barges and other boats going up and down the Tenn-Tom Waterway. It's also a great place to watch a sunset!!!
