“Lots of history and more.”

Fort Massac State Park
Attraction details
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We knew a little about the park, but didn't know the history until we visited during a war reenactment week end. Learned a lot, met a lot of great people. We will go again soon.

Only stopped in for about a half hour on our trip through Metropolis. We picked the wrong day to see it because they were setting up for an encampment the very next day. Just took a quick hike and left, but it looks like a great park to explore if only it hadn't been so full of people today!

Fort Massac is a quiet park that offers a lot of history and beautiful views of the Ohio River. There is an encampment held there one weekend every October that is a HUGE event. There is lots to see and do then!

We had a great time together at the park. My little one loved it! The view was great of the river and i really enjoyed the old houses they had set up for display. There is a lot of room to run and walk around. Lots of fun, we will go back again!

Located on the Ohio River, it gives a good lesson about the settlement of Illinois and the importance of river travel to the early settlers
