Legion State Park

Choctaw Indian Nation

Legion State Park in Louisville is hidden in the Red Hills country of Mississippi.

All the structures are man-made to compliment the beauty of the area.

One famous attraction is the hand-hewn log home structure which has remained unaltered since its construction in the 1930s.

This park was number four of the first parks developed by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) in Mississippi.

Enjoy the same natural beauty that the Choctaw Indian Nation once loved here. 

Visit the Choctaw Museum of the Southern Indian while you're in the area.

Walk along the water's edge, watch for forest animals, drift on the peaceful water, or hike the trails and historic sites.

There are 2 lakes in the area: Lake Toppasha and the smaller Lakelet Palila.
