“A nice stop.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2011

My father and I stopped here because our one of our ancestors fought in the Battle of Arkansas Post during the Civil War. The post itself has a limited amount of information about the civil war, but it does contain a number of different things because the area wasn't only used in the civil war, but prior to it by the French and Spanish for trade and commerce along the river. The Fort itself is not viewable as it has been completely submerged by the River, and has been submerged since the early 1900's. The movie played inside is actually very good, tells the history in a story manner through which a father is teaching his son while out camping together. The rangers at this park were helpful in gathering data for us but I would not consider them experts on the history of the Civil war in the area, but this is also because they need to know history from a lot of other eras. Overall I give this a 3 stars because it is a nice stop if you are in the area, but considering how remote the location is I wouldn't make it a priority.
