Camp Ford is located in Tyler, Tx. It's was the largest Civil War prison camp for union prisoners west of the MIssissippi. It's on the side of the road and they have walking trails that describe the scene during the 1860's at the camp. It's very pretty to walk through there with the busy highway next to you. They have a log cabin, dugout and tent to show what their living quarters were like. This is self-guided and only open during the daytime hours. No other structures remain standing as everything was torn down when federal occupation troops came into Tyler. Very interesting to see if you enjoy history. This took us about 30 minutes to walk through the trails and read the kisok information. The trails are dirt paths so wear good walking shoes.
