Current Weather Information


Trace State Park offers a quiet, natural retreat located just minutes from the excitement of Tupelo, one of Mississippi’s fastest growing cities. Trace State Park offers a variety of outdoor activities ranging from fishing and water sports to exploring miles of secluded nature trails. Trace State Park also adds to Mississippi’s History as within the park was once called the home of one America’s early and colorful pioneers, Davy Crockett. Crockett lived here as a horse trader with the Chickasaw Indians after his defeat for re-election to Congress in his home state of Tennessee. It was while living here he learned of his friend, Sam Houston’s plight in Texas and traveled there to help and was later killed in the Battle of the Alamo. (source: MDWFP website)
