Fort Dickerson, one of the best-preserved earthen forts from the Civil War era, is nestled in a spectacular city park featuring a pristine quarry lake and more than four miles of multi-use natural trails. There are two shelters for enjoying a picnic after walking the interactive trail around the fort, which includes three authentic replica cannons.
There are two parking areas at Fort Dickerson. The upper entrance off Chapman Highway is closest to the Fort. The lower entrance at Augusta Avenue provides easy access to the quarry lake, where swimming is permitted.
