About Tishomingo State Park:

There's a sign on the overhanging bridge that says climbing permits are required. There are no bolted routes that I'm aware of. To get in it is 2 bucks per vehicle, and if you wanna stay overnight you can get anything from primitive ($9 a night) to Cabins which i believe the most expensive is only $58 a night There is also a guide you can purchase at the Main Entrance for $10. It supposedly shows the parks climbing spots.
Nearest town or city: Tishomingo
Directions: From Memphis TN, take highway 72 east to Iuka MS. Go south on highway 25 to Tishomingo MS, then take the state park exit on the far side of Tishomingo. From Jackson MS, take the Natchez Trace past Tupelo MS, after the highway 25 intersection, take a left into the park. There are a couple of places to climb. Follow the road through the park until you see a hanging bridge -- there's a place to park there & if you cross the bridge and go right on the trail (upstream), you'll come to "Jean's OverHang Area". There's also a bouldering area near the check-in station (follow the trail to the left).
