Fort Pillow State Park

Description

Designated a Wildlife Observation Area by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Fort Pillow State Park is a favorite for bird watchers and photographers as it overlooks the Mississippi River from steep bluffs. It also incorporates the 1,642-acre, well-preserved Fort Pillow (c. 1861), which was named for General Gideon J. Pillow of the Confederate Army and has a reconstructed inner fort with a museum. Tours of both are available. The park also has 32 tent sites and 2 bathhouses.
