The Leroy Percy State Park is a state park, wildlife preserve, and recreation area in Hollandale, Mississippi. It is best known for being the oldest unit in the Mississippi state parks system.

Named after a former US Senator from Mississippi, LeRoy Percy, the LeRoy Percy State Park is also the only state park with a wildlife preserve. It is filled with cypress trees, artesian springs, and ancient oaks with Spanish moss. Hunting is a popular activity at the site, allowing seasonal pursuit of squirrel, turkey, duck, deer, and dove. The site is also home to numerous alligators which the visitors can view safely from two observation towers that overlook the hot artesian water home of the reptiles.

Aside from these, visitors of the LeRoy Percy State Park can also enjoy picnicking, hiking, camping, and golfing.
