This hidden treasure located between Vicksburg and Natchez has a great museum with artifacts such as a mastodon bone, arrow head collection, items from the old town of Grand Gulf, WWI,WWII, Civil War items. Then two fortifications on the grounds,picnic pavilion, observation tower you can climb to see all around, RV campground with concrete sites, tent camping and much more. It is a stand alone state agency, not in the state park system, so all fees are used to help maintain this beautiful park. Take a picnic lunch and spend the day, it is worth it. I have been going there since I was a kid.

This was one of our stops related to civil war events, and it was very much worth it. The entrance fee was modest ($3 for seniors), but the information, museums, and short driving tour were certainly worth the drive from HWY 51. We spent about 90 min here, and Mac, the affable fellow behind the counter, was helpful, knowledgeable, and full of local information. It was a bit disappointing that the road to the river was closed due to some recent flooding, but maybe next time. After this, and on the recommendation of Mac, I then followed the Old Port Gibson Road to the Natchez Trace, which follows Grant's march to Jackson before he eventually laid siege to Vicksburg.

Nice state park with lots of buildings and a museum. Recommend a visit while history of this type still stands. A large cemetery is very interesting.

The museum is small but jam packed with an enormous amount of war time era items. The curator was very professional & helpful. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed here one night and camped in the topside area. We watched a beautiful sunset and enjoyed a night so quiet we felt like we were alone! We only wished we could explore the campground before it got dark but at check in it was made clear that no exploring after the park closed (at 5pm) was allowed.
