Camps: What Our Customers Say
Tara Wildlife offers a great opportunity to share and teach my children about wildlife, nature’senviornmental and conservation. My son, Ren, really enjoyed the summer camp activities including the navigation, shooting, conservation, and fishing courses. Now my daughter Sarah is looking forward to camp when she is old enough. It’s great to have a place where girls can get involved and learn about the outdoors as well.
Our family had a great time at the Mississippi River Nature Weekend this year. We enjoyed hiking the trails, bird watching, and learning about conservation practices at Tara. The open top bus ride through the woods was a great way to see wildlife including hawks, waterfowl, deer, and even an alligator!
The staff at Tara is great with the kids and very knowledgeable about the biology of the area.
Thanks for everything you do at Tara.
Jeff, Emmy, Ren and Sarah
We just wanted to write you a short note to thank you most sincerely for ensuring that we all had a wonderful time whilst on TARA. The boys really enjoyed the camp and we can already see that this has had a big and positive mark on both of them. Margot and I found TARA very beautiful and were very impressed. Clearly you have a very dedicated team and TARA will continue to inspire many thousands to the higher ideal of conservation and for many decades to come. Thank you again for your kind hospitality;
Andrew and Margot Muir
Festivals: What People Have to Say
Our Tara weekend was such a delight. The property itself is lovely; the food they served was delicious (we were amazed!); the people were very friendly. Our favorite birds we saw were a pileated woodpecker, a baby bald eagle, a prothonotary warbler, a Baltimore oriole, and a blue grosbeak. The bus tours were convenient, stopping where we could see and hear many birds. And a high point was definitely the hundred or so hummingbirds that came constantly to the feeders on the lodge porch! We highly recommend it!
Hunting: Comments from Hunters
I have bow hunted Tara Properties for the last 15 years. Tara properties are the best establishments that I have bow hunted by far, the hunting, lodging, food, guides and hospitality is the greatest that I have seen and experienced. If you want to bow hunt a quality animal then Tara is the place to do it, it’s a fair chase hunt WITHOUT any high fences.
Describing Tara (my favorite destination every October) is difficult to do in just one paragraph. There are just so many facets that make it so unique to me. Dad and I enjoyed 13 consecutive annual treks to Tara (1999-2011). It was our father-son getaway; just the two of us enjoying what we love to do…bowhunt whitetails. I actually believe he will return with me in 2013, Lord willing. My son will be 15 next September. I promised myself that I would bring my son to Tara when he turned 15. So, we might actually have three generations of Hill’s hunting at Tara next October.

Meetings: What Meeting Organizers Have to Say
We have found Tara to be a great place to hold meetings and training events! The peaceful location is beautiful and the meeting facilities are just what we need.
Tara is a haven for those who love the outdoors, like to do a little fishing, admire the décor from a hunter’s point of view, enjoy gathering areas where a game of some sort is almost always on TV and retire at night to a nice, quiet room.
Thanks for all you do to accommodate us. We can’t say enough good things about Tara and the staff and how well you take care of us!
Southern Timberlands Human Resource Manager
I have been bringing my entire team of 45 associates and guest to Tara Wildlife for 5 years now. When we drive up the gravel driveway and enter the gates of Tara it always amazes me how relaxed I feel and that is just the beginning. Tara is a great place to bring your associates to team build, have meetings and most importantly enjoy each other’s company. One of the things that I love most about Tara is the staff. They make it so easy to plan a meeting and make it a FUN environment for everyone. Anything we have ever asked for has been done (movie night, popcorn, crawfish boil, bus ride through the property, live auction, etc) and when we show up we are greeted by a team of staff who help us unload and set up – – really, they truly are an amazing group to work with! Thanks to Tara and all the staff for providing us a great place to bring our team – – we are looking forward to many more memories in the years ahead!
Mississippi Sales Director
Thank you all for a wonderful meeting site – it was beautiful and the staff were wonderful! You have a great facility and nothing was missed in the details to make it a 5-Star place to stay. I will spread the word about a great place to stay as well as hold meetings. The setting makes for a very productive environment to get things done in the middle of mother nature’s natural resources. Thank you again!
