Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This blufftop battlefield will draw you in not only for a history lesson about the Civil War, but for the attractive ground set on bluffs overlooking the mighty Mississippi.
  • Take an extended trek on a six-mile hiking trail that explores the park and it ecosystems. Bring lunch, too, and enjoy the fine picnic grounds.
  • See the bluff overlook, and all the entrenchments and forts from the Confederates who lived through the longest siege of the entire Civil War.
