Welcome to Yazoo County

Yazoo River forestWhether your interests are in family friendly events and festivals, Civil War history, African American history and heritage, hunting and fishing, or taking in the historical sites and sounds of our communities, your trip on the Yazoo Backroads is waiting.

Yazoo County's character and its sites of interest are as diverse as its landscape. Its geography ranges from flat Delta fields that seem to reach endlessly to the horizon to gently rolling hills bordered with cliffs and canyons cut in loess bluffs, deposited by the wind over many centuries. Those who have inhabited this mysterious land have each made their mark on the landscape and legend of Yazoo.
