Divide Section Wildlife Management Area
The Divide Section Wildlife Management Area (DSWMA) is located in the northeast corner of Mississippi in Tishomingo and Prentiss counties.  This WMA lies on both sides of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway (TTW) stretching from the Yellow Creek arm of Pickwick Lake on the Tennessee River, southward to Bay Springs Lake, a 2,700 acre impoundment on the TTW.  The nearest towns to the DSWMA are Corinth and Iuka on the northern end and Belmont and Booneville on the southern end.  There are also two state parks near the area, J.P. Coleman State Park located north of Iuka and Tishomingo State Park located between Iuka and Belmont. 

At the southern end of the WMA on the west side of Bay Springs Lake, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) operates a full service campground and swimming beach called Piney Grove Campground.
