About Us

Come visit the most unique State Park in Mississippi!!!

Grand Gulf Military Park is located Northwest of Port Gibson, on the Mississippi River, between Vicksburg and Natchez. 

Park guests can step back in time and relive history as it was made. Beginning at the museum, you can trace the development of Grand Gulf through early photographs, maps, scale models, and authentic artifacts found in the area. Coaches and carriages bear silent witness to the days when Grand Gulf was bustling with people; while Union and Confederate uniforms, cannon balls, and muskets remain to tell of the fierce fighting that took place during the latter stage of the Civil War.

The old town of Grand Gulf has an interesting history and the museum displays items from the early days of the booming town. Also, in the museum are items such as a Mastodon bone, Civil War artifacts, items used and paper artifacts from the early 1800's up to the 1950's. Day visitors & campers are surprised at this wonderful park and museum.

Interested in a day trip? Stop by on your way while headed north or south on Highway61. Overnight campers can also enjoy staying in our campground. Our museum boasts brochures on the surrounding areas and our staff will be happy to provide you with additional information and directions.
