‪Afternoon visit‬
العائلة • أكتوبر 2021
‪Beautiful park and just a ton of history. We went and visited for an afternoon and really enjoyed ourselves. We probably walked 1.5 miles and visited the cemetery, observation tower, and multiple sites where confederate soldiers defended the area during the Vicksburg campaign. The park also has a first rate museum along with several antique buildings near the museum. The camping ares are very nice with full hook up, 30 & 50 amp for $25/night. The lower campground looked more appealing to us. The park is several miles outside of Port Gibson,MS. Bring everything you need. I look forward to returning‬

‪A PLEASANT SURPRISE‬
يوليو 2021
‪My friends and I stopped here on our way back from Vicksburg Military Park, and it was well with the visit. The museum had a great array of artifacts from the Civil War and a display of old wagons that date back to the nineteenth cemetery.If you are a Civil War buff or a student of history, then you should visit Grand Gulf Military Park.‬

‪A must visit park for Civil War enthusiasts‬
زوجان • يونيو 2021
‪The Grand Gulf Military Park is a hidden gem located between Vicksburg and Natchez, Mississippi. The amount of history packed into this small(ish) park is amazing. The trail / road is about a mile and half long and is walkable, but be prepared for a workout. The road around the park takes back in time to the 1800’s. There is an old church that is open for touring, an old two story log home that is also open. The open home and church are self guided, and you will need to watch your step. These structures were built in the 1800’s and restoration is not complete.

About half way around the loop there is an old cemetery with graves dating back to the early 1800’s. The grounds are well kept and inviting to walk through. We found the cemetery to quite awe inspiring and somewhat humbling to walk through.

Across from the cemetery there is an observation tower that provides a spectacular view of the terrain and what was once a fierce battle ground during the civil war. The tower is an easy climb, if you are not afraid of heights.

The park also boasts a campground with full hook-ups and very reasonable rates.

There is a museum with tons of artifacts from the civil war, and even prehistoric times. The staff are incredibly friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have. There is an outdoor section to the museum that has old carriages, fire trucks and even the city’s old jail.

This is a place that you should visit if you are into the history around the civil war, or even if you are a nature buff.‬

‪Look out for the geese‬
مارس 2021
‪Grand Gulf Military Park is a hidden treasure, a historic monument off Route 61 between Vicksburg and Natchez, a few miles from Port Gibson. My wife and I have visited the location three times and we never are disappointed by what we see. The first thing I remember about Grand Gulf is the entrance, where a sign marks a 29-foot-high point where the water crested in 1927, capping the worst flood in the history of the United States. Historically, there are the earthworks of two Confederate fortifications that attempted to prevent Union gunboats from approaching Vicksburg. There is a museum. campsites, picnic grounds, a Confederate Memorial Chapel that was built in 1868, the Grand Gulf cemetery, hiking trails and an observation tower that offers a spectacular view of the Mississippi River and the surrounding area. Located eight miles northwest of Port Gibson, near a Nuclear plant, Grand Gulf Military Park is a 400-acre Mississippi landmark that was opened in 1962 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. It preserves the memory of the 1963 battle that was fought here and the town of Grand Gulf, which was originally a busy port on the Mississippi River but after being burned in the Civil War and a shift in the flow of the river, it became a ghost town with only a few restored buildings dating back to Grand Gulf's heyday. Oh, be wary of the geese that inhabit the grounds surrounding the chapel. They can get downright angry at times.‬

‪Not for everyone‬
يناير 2021
‪If you want tv (unless you have satellite, which we don't ), wifi (unless you have a personal hotspot and even then it's VERY sketchy) and phone service (unless you're willing to travel 5 miles into town), this is not the place for you. if you enjoy peace and quiet, you'll like this campground. We were there in January and everything was brown and stickly. There's an upper and a lower campground. Upper has fire pits, lower has better water pressure per desk clerk. The road into the campground is narrow with low lying branches, not class A friendly. Was farther than expected from Vicksburg which was our priority. Staff was friendly but don't lose the gate code after closing as it's nearly impossible to find someone to help you get in. The normal road from Route 61 is closed for repairs and the detour was long, winding, and again, in spots, not Class A friendly. Nice park for some but not for us. We wished they had disclosed many things on their website or on the phone before we booked there.‬

‪Stayed in their rv camp area. It was very affordable and quiet. Lots of workers from the nuclear plant stay here while working. They make a little noise leaving out for work around 5AM, but otherwise it's super peaceful.‬

‪Hidden Treasure a must see.‬
بمفردك • أكتوبر 2020
‪This hidden treasure located between Vicksburg and Natchez has a great museum with artifacts such as a mastodon bone, arrow head collection, items from the old town of Grand Gulf, WWI,WWII, Civil War items. Then two fortifications on the grounds,picnic pavilion, observation tower you can climb to see all around, RV campground with concrete sites, tent camping and much more. It is a stand alone state agency, not in the state park system, so all fees are used to help maintain this beautiful park.
Take a picnic lunch and spend the day, it is worth it. I have been going there since I was a kid.‬

‪Great historical significance mixed with local lore‬
سبتمبر 2020
‪This was one of our stops related to civil war events, and it was very much worth it. The entrance fee was modest ($3 for seniors), but the information, museums, and short driving tour were certainly worth the drive from HWY 51. We spent about 90 min here, and Mac, the affable fellow behind the counter, was helpful, knowledgeable, and full of local information. It was a bit disappointing that the road to the river was closed due to some recent flooding, but maybe next time. After this, and on the recommendation of Mac, I then followed the Old Port Gibson Road to the Natchez Trace, which follows Grant's march to Jackson before he eventually laid siege to Vicksburg.‬

‪Nice state park with lots of buildings and a museum. Recommend a visit while history of this type still stands. A large cemetery is very interesting. ‬
