Address: 3122 Park Rd., Henning, TN
This 1,600-acre state park is situated on the first Chickasaw Bluff overlooking the mighty Mississippi. This was a strategic spot for the Confederate Army during the Civil War; they hastily built earthen fortifications here, which are well preserved today. The infamous Fort Pillow Massacre took place here. Learn more about the historical and archaeological significance of this park at its museum and interpretive center, where you can view Civil War artifacts and a film about the 1864 battle. The park also offers boat access, camping, fishing and picnic facilities.
