Park Visitor Center
Boy/Girl Scout groups should identify themselves as such to park entrance personnel in order to receive entrance fee waivers. In the Visitor Center please provide both troop number and contact information to the ranger at the desk.
Educational tours (elementary, high school, and university groups) are also granted entrance fee waivers by preparing a letter, on school letterhead, which states the educational purpose of the tour, faxing a copy to the park (601-636-9497, ATTN: Superintendent) prior to the visit, and presenting the letter to the park entrance personnel upon their arrival.
Did You Know?
Thomas O. Selfridge, captain of the USS Cairo, commanded three boats which sank during the war. Each began with the letter "C"-Cumberland, Cairo, and Conestoga. The coincidence was noted after the Conestoga sank, and Selfridge was assigned to the USS Osage, which survived to the end of the war.
