Fishing, Paddling and boating
Ridgeland is a waterfront town, on the sparkling shores of the Rez (that's what locals call the Barnett Reservoir — all 33,000 acres of it). That makes Ridgeland a prime destination for endless hours of boating, sailing, fishing, paddling, water sports, camping, picnicking and bird watching.
