Boat ramp reopens after improvements
The boat ramp at J.P. Coleman State Park near Iuka has been improved and is now open for use according to officials at the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.

Also planned are a new courtesy dock and additional parking slots. For more information about J.P. Coleman State Park visit the MDWFP website www.mdwfp.com.
