Port Hudson is the site of the largest siege in US military history, and today the site features Civil War battlefields, hiking trails through the woods, and a small but nice museum. The trails here are the closest hiking trails to Baton Rouge (worth going to) that you can find. I recommend starting out on the trails, working up a... 更多
This was our second attempt to see this site, the first was aborted since there was a school track meet. The park is a great "walking" park through nature. The historic sites are between .2 to .5 miles from the road. The museum is small but packed with military memorabilia and the dioramas are well presented. They do have an... 更多
We spent a half day here, enjoyable. Nice grounds, several walking trails, wonderful main building with several great Civil War artifacts/history. Suggest going during cooler weather as hot day (106 heat index) hikes aren't the best.
This is a beautiful park to visit, especially if you like Civil War Battle sites and hiking. Nice, free museum to see real artifacts from the war. The 1 mile hiking trail to the battle area was well-maintained and cool in the shade. The park was very well kept and the staff were knowledgeable about the history and were interesting... 更多
If you enjoy nature and history, then this is the place to go. Some of the most impressive preserved earth works from the civil war surrounded by beautiful nature! the trails are nice and well marked. The museum is sobering.
An interesting historical site. If you can, schedule your visit when the site has an event when one of the canons will be fired. Can be quite hot in the summer, if there is no breeze.
On our way to Rosedown Plantation, in neighboring St. Francisville, we stopped at Port Hudson. We've been talking about visiting here for some time, and had hoped to attend the civil war re-enactment one year. We didn't hike any of the trails, but did visit the museum. To visit the park there is a $4.00 fee per adult (I am... 更多
The museum is really good. A lot of good information and good for students to learn about what happen long ago. The grounds are really good also. You can walk around and see some interesting stuffs.
Budget cuts have left the area not quite maintained as well as it could be, though the personnel there are doing the best they can. The older parts no longer are being used, but never areas are being developed. Many real American heroes are buried here, including members of my family. It is always an emotional experience to go, but... 更多
