Basic Information


Today, as in 1868, the Washita River flows silently through the valley. The river banks are shaded by cottonwoods and sycamore and flanked with waving fields of grass. Ancient hills of red dirt rim the horizons. This peaceful setting offers us hallowed ground to contemplate this watershed event in our shared history, a place to find understanding, meaning, and perhaps healing in the wake of tragedy.

The visitor center is open 7 days a week. The overlook and trail are open daily from dawn until dusk. Visit Operating Hours & Seasons for more information.
