Lakeshore Park

Ross Barnett Reservoir

Brandon, Mississippi, United States

Lakeshore Park is located on the southeastern shore of the Barnett Reservoir in Rankin County. The property is maintained by PRVWSD as a swimming, boating, and picnic area. Access is from Northshore Parkway, about 1/2 mile north of Spillway Road. The sampling site is adjacent to a designated swimming area with sand bottom and narrow beach with a wooden pier. The site is heavily used in the summer months. Canada Geese and Mallards are numerous in the park, encouraged by feeding. The surrounding grass is kept mowed, allowing rapid runoff after rain events.
