Lake Information for Grenada Reservoir


Grenada Reservori (also Grenada Lake) is a 35,000-acre reservoir on the Yalobusha River in the U.S. state of Mississippi. It is one of four flood control lakes in North Mississippi constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Grenada Lake was constructed to help control flooding along the Yazoo River Basin. The dam is located on the Yalobusha River approximately 3 miles northeast of Grenada, Mississippi. The lake has approximately 48 mi (77 km) of shoreline.

Since its impoundment, Grenada Lake has attracted an ever-increasing number of visitors who enjoy water-based and other outdoor recreational activities and is host to several fishing tournaments annually as well. Grenada Lake is the home to two state parks, Carver's Point and Hugh White, with many campgrounds located around the lake. It also is home to the Dogwoods Golf Course which has been hailed as one of the best golf courses in the southeast, and possibly the entire United States.
