Location

Helena, Mississippi
Helena is located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and is blessed with the scenic beauty of its rivers, marshes, and live oaks draped with Spanish Moss.  Just over 1100 people call the town of Helena home. This sleepy little town in southeastern Mississippis is the kind of place you are happy to find still exists.

With its close ties to Moss Point, Helena developed near the confluence of two rivers, the Pascagoula and the Escatawpa.  Set in the beautiful and lush countryside of rural Mississippi, one can discover the rhythm of the region embodied in the small town of Helena.  The heritage of the Deep South is celebrated here in various ways...music, food, and architecture.  Juke joints, bottle trees, and barbecue pits are just a few of the cultural signifiers visible from area roads.  Helena is authentic Mississippi and its rootsy American culture calls to those who want a simpler life and a little place to call "home".

Helena has the perfect mixture of coastal living, self-reliant woodsy attitude, and urban, progressive, tolerant culture.  Its pine forests and oak-gum cypress, green meadows, creeks, and abundant wildlife...are comfortable just waiting for the next sunrise...the next sunset.  Helena is just the right place to meet the unique needs of Cypress Creek Farms.

Fresh and Salt Water Fishing
There is fishing...and then there is fishing in south-eastern Mississippi, a top destination for competitive fishing throughout the world.  Whether your choice is fresh or salt water, you can find your new favorite fishing spot for rock bass, red breast sunfish, carp, speckled trout or any number of fish in the many lakes, reservoirs, streams and coastal waters just minutes from home in Cypress Creek Farms.

For a more relaxing time, spend just one hour on the Pascagoula River and it feels like you've traveled back a couple of centuries.  Alligator eyes watch from the shade cast by black gum and bald cypress, and birds call from overhead.  Farther along, a flash of brown and white on the riverbank makes the quick retreat of a deer.  Cypress Creek Farms...it's a place only a few can call home.
