Located on scenic Sardis Reservoir just one hour from Memphis, John W. Kyle State Park offers a wide array of recreational opportunities in an area abundant in natural beauty. The historic campus of the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) is just 25 miles away, making Kyle State Park the perfect spot to spend a football weekend.

Great hike along the lake. Beautiful place to camp!

I think someone misplaced a decimal point. This was a ONE mile trail. I used a pedometer. The kids and I walked two loops to get two miles out of it. It was very pretty. The kids loved seeing frogs and lizards.

I live in Panola County, where Sardis, MS is located and was looking for the map so I could hike this trail - it is NOT close to Sardis, MS.........it is in Roxie, MS - about 3 and a half hours south of Sardis. This probably needs to be corrected in the overview, FYI.

Hilly, but well maintained and fun.

Quite a short little loop trail. Took less then 30 minutes. Didn't see any other trails anywhere close. A group of buzzards were a cool sight on the boardwalk portion. Could be a nice place to hang out in if the other trails were easier to find.

This is a great camping spot with challenging trails for hiking or mountain biking. Their are several trails to choose from. Starting at a 1mile track around to lake to a 12 mile track deep in the woods that might take you an hour to get to. And a few others in between. I'm looking forward to going back
