The best camping near Fort Pillow State Park guide



Come to Fort Pillow for the history buffs and stay for the steep bluffs. The fort itself was a strategic Confederate location during the Civil War, but you won鈥檛 have to simply imagine soldiers of bygone days walking around with muskets鈥攖hey鈥檝e got re-enactments for that! Check out the well-preserved breastworks of Fort Pillows or venture inside the reconstructed inner fort. If you鈥檙e more about the present than the past, head out on the 5 miles of hiking trails or have a picnic at the pavilion. Family reunion with an antique cannon nearby? Sounds sweet!
