Meeting Place: Visitor Center Orientation Room
Native Americans, removed from their homes, made decisions here that changed their lives. For this reason, Lake Dardanelle State Park is a registered Trail of Tears site. Join park staff in the orientation room to get a glimpse of what life on the trail was like for those who traveled it. The new video “Trail of Tears” is wonderfully made video about a truly dark time in Cherokee history as well as U.S. history.
