FORT TOULOUSE NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK
FORT TOULOUSE NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK
Located just south of Wetumpka where the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers meet to form the headwaters of the Alabama River, visitors will find over 6000 years of history at Fort Toulouse-Jackson National Historic Park. Open year round, everyone is invited to enjoy 165 acres of history and natural beauty. Tour the French and American Forts, or the Mississipian Mound site or just relax and take a walk through the William Bartram Arboretum, named for the famed 18th century botanist.

Top of your trip with a visit to the Grave's House where you'll find a bookstore and museum featuring archaeological collections from French colonial, early American and prehistoric Indian items. The park also hosts a full service 39-site campground overlooking the Coosa River.

Most months visitors are able to be a part of living history weekends involving the French Marines at Fort Toulouse or the Tennessee Militia and the U.S. Army Regulars at Fort Jackson. In addition, visitors will find historic black-smithing weekends as well as special events throughout the year such as Frontier Days in the Fall and the French and Indian Spring Encampment.

June 3 Our home away from home by slapoutkid
We love camping here. It is so quiet and secluded but convenient to stores. They have recently upgraded the power. They were supposed to upgrade the water but ran into some problems..maybe they can get them worked out. We would live here year round if they would allow us too.
