Is your busy study schedule preventing you from accessing all the wonderful outdoor adventures in Mississippi? Residents of HELiX Starkville Luxury Student Living are in walking distance of Mississippi State University, but eventually everyone needs to get out and enjoy nature occasionally. Fortunately for those living in these luxury apartments, it’s an easy drive to Choctaw Lake. Hiking, camping, mountain biking, and fishing are just a few of the activities this incredible area has to offer.

Pack a picnic and spend a lazy Saturday catching large mouth bass or catfish. For a longer adventure, there are plenty of first-come, first-serve campsites, so you don’t have to plan anything in advance. Escape the Mississippi heat and humidity at the swimming beach or hike the three-mile trail through the hardwood forest. Watch for the many species of birds native to this area as you enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

The campground is also the start of a 26-mile hiking and biking trail, so mountain bikers can enjoy long, scenic rides through the national forest. Backpackers can also use this trail to explore the area. The trail has easy, moderate, and advanced sections, so there really is something for everyone.

Don’t miss out on the great opportunities to get outdoors while you’re a student at Mississippi State University. The Luxury Student Apartments at HELiX Starkville are in the perfect place to enjoy the many campus activities and a vibrant apartment community.
