We stayed in the lower campground because of the reviews we had read on other sites. The upper CG as it turned out would have been fine. The road leading to it is rather steep not... read more

We stayed in the lower campground because of the reviews we had read on other sites. The upper CG as it turned out would have been fine. The road leading to it is rather steep not well maintained. The CG is very nice with level cement pads and full hook ups. It was very clean and though the bathrooms were... More

We accidentally found this park by reading the road signs; so glad we stopped! Many historical artifacts! It is self guided so you can do as little or much as you choose.

Interesting and detailed museum should be taken in before the up to 2 mile drive or walk along some interesting sites. Lovely old Church, Spanish style house and many detailed info boards explaining the happenings during the Battle for Vicksburg. Lovely day when I visited, so walked around, little steep going up, small cemetery was interesting. Couple of small drives... More

Being that our main destination was supposed to be The Vicksburg Nat'l Park, we almost passed up this place. But, we were so glad that we stopped! There were a lot of artifacts and interesting sights in the museum and on the grounds. We got a kick out of the boot leg whiskey submarine (it was a real thing) and... More

If you need tv (unless you have satellite), wifi (unless you have a personal hotspot), and phone service (unless you're willing to travel 5 miles into town), this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, you'll like this campground. There's an upper and a lower campground. You have to go... More

It was a site of battles in the civil war. It also has buildings scattered around the property with a self guided driving tour.It is very picturesque. There... More

The first weekend in Sept, 2016, spent 4 nights in my RV while motorcycling the length of the Natchez Trace Parkway. I was absolutely highly impressed with the Grand Gulf Military Park Campground. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The grounds and facilities were clean and in good order. The bathhouses, while old, were clean and in good working... More

At the start its a walking tour and museum than becomes a driving tour with buildings, a cemetery,and an observation tower. After the driving tour go across the street to the Mississippi River.

The drive to get to this location is so worth taking. At first, I wondered if I should keep going since I had driven so far, but kept going. I am glad I did. The little museum is really nice and the staff was so friendly. The ground are beautiful. I live in Mississippi and did not realize the battle... More
