The Holly Springs National Forest is an idyllic place to set up camp or head out on the lake on a canoe. The forest was purchased by the government in 1933 under the leadership of Congressman Wall Doxey. It was initially made of up small parcels of abandoned farmland, but since this land was surrounded by beautiful holly trees, it soon became a popular tourist attraction. The Civilian Conservation Corps planted hundreds of trees in the area to stabilize the soil, and the land soon turned into a thriving forest of lush vegetation, plants and wildlife. Today, Holly Springs National Forest serves as the natural habitat of hundreds of animals and plants, and has its own recreational area for visitors who want to enjoy the sights and sounds of this natural landmark.
Guests staying at the Downtown Oxford Inn have easy access to this restored forest and scenic lake, and can enjoy a number of activities and events at the parks year round. Click on the link below to learn more about the Holly Springs National Forest and lakes of the region.
