We stopped here and was greatly pleased with everything! The way everything was set up. The short movie, (that tells the history) and the walk down to the river. It was very relaxing! Definitely recommend!

A nice national park commemorating a terrible event in our history. Sad to see what the native americans went through in losing their land. There is a nice visitor center with a small museum that helps understand these events.
