Welcome to the Vicksburg District's Corps Lakes...

Aside from the water itself, the terrestrial resources that surround our lakes are valuable assets that sustain the exquisite nature of our 10 lakes.

Original congressional authorizations were limited in some cases to only one purpose, Flood Damage Reduction at our older projects. More recent authorization included multi-purpose functions such as Hydropower Production, Natural Resource Management, Environmental Stewardship, Water Supply, Public Recreation, as well as Flood Damage Reduction.

Everyone is encouraged to visit Vicksburg District Corps Projects, recognize the purpose of the project and enjoy the many opportunities provided to expand your knowledge of the outdoors and relax.
