Horseshoe Bend

Managed by the National Park Service, the Horseshoe Bend National Military Park commemorates the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, fought on March 27, 1814, which effectively ended Creek resistance to American advances into the southeast and opened up the Mississippi Territory for pioneer settlement.

Visitors can start their exploration of the park at the Visitor Center, which has educational exhibits and a 22-minute introduction video of the battle. In addition, the 2,040-acre park has a 3-mile-long driving tour that skirts the edge of the battlefield and a 2.8-mile-long nature trail that explores part of the park near Tohopeka Village, the site of a Creek Indian camp in the early 1800s.
