Scenic Drive from Sardis to Batesville / by Will Jacks

Take MS-315 S from Sardis where a two lane black-top snakes through the gripping landscapes of rural Panola county. Camp at a campground, picnic, swim or find a spot to boat, hunt, fish, go birding or walk a trail on some of the 98,000 acres at Sardis Lake. Continue on MS-35 S to Batesville where the charming Batesville Square is brimming with shopping, festivals and local excitement from a weekly farmer's market in the summer to the Polar Express train during the holiday season.
