Grant's Canal Park and Lake Overlook are located on U.S. 65. The canal is all that remains of Grant's 1863 attempt to circumvent the fortifications at Vicksburg through the backwaters of Louisiana, and is approximately 1,000 feet long. The western end of the canal can be viewed from the 600-foot pier and nature walk, which also offers a view of Lake Providence. Byerley House, adjacent to the park, serves as a visitor information center.
