Trail Of Tears State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Trail of Tears State Park is a place of both natural beauty and historical significance. The park’s name evokes the forced relocation of Native Americans from their lands in the southeast. Called “Nunahi-Duna-Dlu-Hilu-I” by natives, or “Trail where they cried”, their 800-mile trek passed by and through the park.

It’s estimated that 4,000 died during the trek to Indian Territory in what is now eastern Oklahoma. In 1987 Congress designated the Trail of Tears a National Historic Trail. The park’s 3,415 acres overlay a scenic maze of ridges and hollows next to the Mississippi River. You’ll get a feel for this rugged riverside landscape at the park’s visitor center, where a scale model of Trail of Tears shows its topography, including its roads, trails, and campgrounds."
