Visitors Center

Like I always say the first place you should stop is the Visitors Center. Here you will pay the entrance fee and get any brochures, maps and other information to enhance your visit. There is also a nice museum and a short informative film available. The park is one of four parks associated with the War of 1812. It also concerns an 1814 battle between General Andrew Jackson's 3300 member Tennessee Militia accompanied by some Creek allies and 1000 Red Stick Warriors led by the Creek Indian War Chief, Menawa.

Tallapoosa River

There are boating opportunities on the Tallapoosa River to include a boat ramp within park grounds. You can also fish, but only from the shore at the Miller Bridge Boat Ramp. Make sure you have an Alabama Fishing License.

Meet the People

The park had some people dressed in period costume, and some nice rangers, like Joanie.

    Beautiful historical park and page. I agree, the visitor centers are a wealth of information and have some of the most helpful people. Sounds like my kind of place.
