Kemper Lake will be a busy place during the Independence Day weekend.

The 595-acre lake is the place for a fun afternoon of fishing or boating.

And there are campsites available so you can settle in and enjoy the beautiful scenery while trying to catch some crappie, blue gill bream, catfish, largemouth and spotted bass.

The lake, built in 1984, is part of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.
