The park contains various breastworks and rifle pits from the 1861 fort that was occupied by both confederate and union forces between 1861-64. The interperative center has displayed artifacts and a movie that explains the events that occurred here. There are various hiking trails that take you through the fort remains and over to some awesome views of the Mississippi river from high up on the chickasaw bluffs. There is abundant wild life that include many deer, ducks, squirrel, raccoon, owls and we even saw some chipmunks on the edge of the yellow trail. They have plenty of picnic areas, a nice playground and a beautiful 25 acre lake. You can use your own johnboats or canoes. The campground is designed for tents and very small campers or pop ups. They do not have electrical or water. The 38 sites also have two bathhouses that are very modern and clean with toliets and hot showers. They also have a group camp and a back country camp area. Enjoy :)
