• River: Yazoo River
• Length: 65 Miles
• Surface Area: 15,000 Acres
• Volume: 1,213,500 Acre Feet
• Drainage Area: 560 Square Miles
Enid Lake and the surrounding land, managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, provides multiple premiere campsites and opportunities for boating, hiking, swimming, picnicking, fishing, horseback riding, and wildlife and wildflower viewing. Enid Lake is part of the Yazoo Headwater Project, a comprehensive flood control solution designed to address disastrous floods that occurred in the Lower Mississippi Valley from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. After the most devastating of the floods, occurring in 1927, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers were charged with the design, implementation, and management of this critical project.

"Enid Lake has been recognized as one of America’s Top 10 Fishing Spots, and Enid’s Persimmon Hill Campground has been selected as one of America’s Top 100 Family Campgrounds twice by the National Recreation Reservation Service. Not only is Enid Lake a camper's dream, it is also home of the world record white crappie which weighed an impressive 5 pounds 3 ounces."


Since completion, the Yazoo Headwater Project protects over one million acres from flooding and partially protects another 300,000 acres. As a direct result, Mississippi has been able to consistently produce significantly more agricultural products for national and international consumption. Additional lands surrounding the lake, purchased as part of the original project, continue to be managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Public recreational opportunities, fish and wildlife management, environmental conservation, and forestry reclamation are among the many continuing successes of this project.
