Eudora is a census-designated place and unincorporated community located in southwestern DeSoto County, Mississippi, United States, approximately 25 miles (40 km) south of Memphis, Tennessee. The intersection of Mississippi Highway 301 and old Mississippi Highway 304 has been the traditional heart of Eudora for decades.

The community has seen little growth in its history, unlike many other areas of Desoto County which have experienced tremendous development due to suburban sprawl from Memphis. The limited growth Eudora has seen, mostly new homes, likely results from its proximity to the casino district at Robinsonville, 10 miles (16 km) to the west. Also spurring interest in the area is the 2007 opening of the I-69 freeway which makes commuting to Memphis easier. Eudora is served by this new route with exits at Fogg Road and MS Hwy 301.

It was first named as a CDP in the 2020 Census which listed a population of 386.
