Fort Pillow was built by confederate troops in 1861. The steep bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River made the fort a strategic location. A beautiful park overlooking the majestic river is also good strategy, as is visiting the park on a warm summer day to bone up on your Civil War History. Tours of the fort are offered daily, and there’s a museum onsite with artifacts and other cool stuff. The campground is rustic, enabling you to head back to the 1860s with relative ease. With flushing toilets and potable drinking water, you’re already faring better than those that walked before you.

Located near the Mighty Mississippi River. Great views at various spots throughout the park. The Park has a museum, that is well worth the visit. If camping, RV or tent pack in some food and drinks. Nearest Walmart is in Ripley TN, few miles away.
