We like to go for walks along the path at Poison Springs. The last time we were there they were doing a reenactment, but we just missed it😕 One of the reenactors let me take some pictures of him, though! It was great! There are stairways and inclines along the path, so it may not be good for very young... 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?

A quiet wooded area with picnic tables and interpretive signage about the Civil War battle that claimed 300 supply wagons of the Union army plus the k death of 100's of men North and South.

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

This is a small place that is historically significant. It is interesting especially for history buffs or those interested in folliage, trees, outdoorsy stuff. Takes 10 minutes to visit and enjoy. Just a short drive and looksy trip.
