My mom and I recently visited, and I would highly recommend first visiting the Interpretive center. They show a 20 minute video which gives insight into the history of the area as well as the camp.

The camp had some stunning sculptures depicting life at the time, but without knowing about the area and its significance it may not have the same impact.

The Contraband Camp is a park with a nice, smooth walking path and cast statuary along the trail. It doesn't take long to go through but the attention it gives to the experience of former slaves during the war is worthwhile. The site seems to be built for growth and I hope that more is added as time goes on.

I was hoping for more...I've read stories about these camps and the impact it had on escaped slaves and the war effort. All this is, is a park with statues representing activities or events. Not much detail. Interesting, but unless you're in the area, not worth going out of your way to see.

It gave me an understanding of just what the blacks had to go through! Eye opening stuff! This place showed the creativity of all slaves and their ability to thrive!

The Camp is an historic site and part of the Corinth Civil War experience where freed slaves lived and worked while the Union occupied Corinth. While there are no plaques to explain what happened there, there are beautiful bronze statues that line a walking trail. It is a strikingly silent way to absorb history. The tall trees offer peace (as long as a train isn't nearby).
