A great place to visit if you are a history buff or if the Civil War is of interest. Small park with a hiking trail and several historical signs. No other facilities are available. Certainly worth the stop!😊👍🏻

Do not expect amenities, this is the forest. Nice asphalted parking area, picnic tables. Most importantly the plaques recognizes and remembers the many lives lost from a horrible battle during the Civil War in April 1864. The trail through the forest is great exercise, nothing...More

Interesting history of an extended skirmish during the Civil War. Little more than a plaque and a parking space. In fact 6 plaques, about a dozen spaces and a picnic table or two. I was going to take a pic but couldn't find anything to...More

Not even the location of the battle. A few signs telling about the battle. A few picnic tables, nothing else. This was a battle of the Red River campaign. Doesn't it deserve at least a sign at the battlesite?

I have been coming to this state park since i can remember and still find new things on the trail. Great place to get out and enjoy nature and do a little grilling

Nothing to do here but look at a small civil war display and walk through the woods. Overall it's a nice clean park, but we usually just stop here as 'one last thing to do' before driving home from White Oak Lake
