Discover Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site, MS

Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site is an important historical area that was the site of a significant Confederate victory during the American Civil War. At this site, Major General Nathan Bedford Forrest led troops who were outnumbered to win a battle against the much larger Union forces.

Rent an RV near Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site, and you can explore several points of interest on-site. This battlefield site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated as a park in 1929. One of the components within the site is a monument that was placed shortly after the park received its designation; another is the Presbyterian church that served as a makeshift hospital for wounded soldiers, and the last is Bethany Cemetery which predates the Civil War (many early settlers of the area are buried here) and is the final resting place of some of the soldiers who were killed.

Getting Outdoors

RV rentals in Lee County are how your iconic vacation will begin, but where your rental RV takes you from there is up to you. The battlefield site is open from sunrise to sunset year-round and allows guests to walk through the site at their leisure; there is a sidewalk or paved trail around the monument, making the battlefield site at least partially ADA accessible. It has interpretive panels that provide some information and context to the battle; if you would like to know more detailed information, there is an interpretive center located a few miles away in nearby Baldwyn and a visitor center to the south in Tupelo. Either of these locations can provide you with more information and have staff who can answer your questions.

Slightly farther out, there are a number of churches in the vicinity of the Brices Cross Roads Battlefield Site, and several ponds and two creeks that flow through the area, Dry Creek and Tishomingo Creek; these attractions can make for a pleasant walk through the area to take in the sights. If you'd like to take a driving tour of the area to enjoy the scenery, you can take your rental motorhome and follow the Brices Crossroads Tour Stops, which are strategically located in key spots that were important during the actual battle.

Stopped over one night on our trip out to the Ozarks. Really cool campground, lots of trees, nice and clean. Close in to town, but still very quiet.
