The Delta National Forest is located in Sharkey County north of Vicksburg, Mississippi, within the floodplain of the Mississippi River. It is one of the few hardwood forests remaining in the Mississippi Delta and the only bottomland hardwood national forest in the nation. The Homochitto National Forest was named for the Homochitto River, a Native American name for "Big Red River." The area of land around what is now the Homodhitto National Forest waas strongly influenced by France, England and Spain. The largest nearby city, Natchez, derived its name from the Native American tribe formerly located on the lower Mississippi River.

The De Soto National Forest is Mississippi's largest national forest. Established in 1935, it is named after the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto. The Forest you see today is the result of hard work by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930's and Forest Service employees. Gently rolling terrain with southern pine ridges and bottomland hardwoods predominate the De Soto National Forest.

The Holly Springs and Tombigbee National Forest form 213,000 acres of national forest system land in northeast Mississippi. Before the establishment of these forests, much of the land was abandoned farmland with rapidly eroding soils. These rolling hills are now covered with pine and hardwood forests. They are rich with wildlife and intermingled with private farms and woodlots. National forest system lands on these forests are scattered across ten counties.
