Welcome to Grenada Lake

 

Located in the gently rolling hills of pine and hardwood forests at the entrance to the Mississippi Delta, Grenada Lake is an inland paradise. This 90,427 acre project has something to offer almost every outdoor enthusiast from hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, skiing, and bird watching, to camping, picnicking, golfing, swimming, and much, much more.

 The Grenada Lake Visitor Center is the perfect starting point for your visit to Grenada Lake. This uniquely designed facility features a theater and exhibits that interpret the lake and its natural resources. It is an excellent place to explore the rich history and cultures that have influenced and impacted this region of Mississippi. The Visitor Center also provides information about Grenada Lake's recreation facilities, local attractions and an overlook which provides a panoramic view of the 36,000 acre Grenada Lake.

The Visitor Center is opened weekdays from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and weekends from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

 ATTENTION ALL RECREATION USER GROUPS UTILIZING ALL-TERRAIN AND UTILITY VEHICLES ON CORPS LANDS

On April 18, 2014, a public notice was released informing the All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) and Utility Vehicle (UTV) user groups at Enid and Grenada lakes of a new helmet policy.  During the three-week period following its release, park rangers have performed ATV patrols to inform operators/passengers of the new rule and its impending enforcement.

Beginning May 9, 2014, all ATV/UTV operators and passengers (including UTVs with full cabs, Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles (ROVs), All-Terrain Cycles (ATCs) and other vehicles that travel on non-highway tires and are designed specifically for off-road use) will be required to wear a DOT-approved (Department of Transportation) helmet.  Signs have been posted in various locations around the projects to inform and remind the public of the helmet requirements.  Strict enforcement of all rules and regulations is intended to provide a safe environment for ATV/UTV operation, to protect natural resources, and to minimize negative impacts on the environment.  Violators will be cited and fined in accordance with CFR Title 36 Rules and Regulations.  Refusal to follow posted restrictions could also result in an appearance before a Federal Magistrate or banishment form the projects, or a combination of any of the above. 

 


 

NOTICE: ATV Usage at Corps Lakes

Over the past several years, the recreational sport of All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) riding has become increasingly popular at the Mississippi lakes (Arkabutla, Enid, Sardis, Grenada). The numerous acres of mudflats and miles of shoreline during low lake levels provide great riding opportunities for ATV enthusiasts. However, the increased ATV traffic has prompted the Mississippi lakes' staffs to institute an educational campaign to remind users of the safety and environmental concerns associated with ATV usage.

It is imperative that riders practice safety and follow all rules and regulations while riding or using ATVs for recreational or work-related purposes at the Mississippi lakes. According to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 36, it is unlawful to operate an ATV in a careless, negligent or reckless manner. SKIMMING, which is motoring an ATV to a high rate of speed and hydroplaning across water, is a violation of CFR Title 36. Strict enforcement of all rules and regulations is intended to provide a safe environment for ATV operation.

Visitors are also reminded that the destruction, defacement, removal, or any alteration of any public property including natural formations, mineral deposits, historical and archaeological features (material from old house sites, arrowheads and other Native American artifacts, etc.), and paleontological resources (Native American remains) is prohibited. Misuse of these machines can cause rutting and destroy sensitive wetland habitat, erode creek banks, and even destroy native plant species allowing invasive plant species to take over. Therefore, it is very important that all ATV users practice responsible riding, respect other visitors, be environmentally conscious, and abide by all rules and regulations or risk losing the privilege of riding ATVs at the Mississippi lakes. For more information, contact the Grenada Lake Field Office at 662-226-5911.
