We stopped here and was greatly pleased with everything! The way everything was set up. The short movie, (that tells the history) and the walk down to the river. It was very relaxing! Definitely recommend!

A nice national park commemorating a terrible event in our history. Sad to see what the native americans went through in losing their land. There is a nice visitor center with a small museum that helps understand these events.

This site seemed to have it all together, which is not the case for some other sites dealing with Indigenous peoples in the United States. Interpretation was balanced and it was easy to follow exactly where the massacre (or battle depending on your interpretation of...More
