Do not expect amenities, this is the forest. Nice asphalted parking area, picnic tables. Most importantly the plaques recognizes and remembers the many lives lost from a horrible battle during the Civil War in April 1864. The trail through the forest is great exercise, nothing...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?
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
We stopped at Poison Springs on our Civil War 150th trip. We spent 30 minutes reading the markers, enjoying the cool weather, and the lack of crowd. There was a short nature trail and a great place for a picnic if you're here around lunch.
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.
