Daviston - Horseshoe Bend National Military Park

11288 Horseshoe Bend Road

Horseshoe Bend National Military Park commemorates the place where over 800 Upper Creek warriors where killed by the army led by General Andrew Jackson. Today, the park, which contains part of the Tallapoosa River, is a popular place for daytime recreational activities including boating and shore fishing. A three-mile-long tour road and a 2.8-mile nature trail provide views of the ground where the battle was fought, and the visitor center contains more history on the battle for interested guests. The 2,040-acre national park is north along the river from Martin Lake and about 38 miles by car from Auburn.

Came for the sunset on the way from antelope canyon. Was a beautiful and breathtaking view. Was packed on spring break but still got a good spot and view. One of my favorite spots. Parking was free and there are plenty of public restrooms for everybody. They do have a no drone warning so that is a little downside but understandable. Also a little distance walk from the parking to the edges. Overall it is great. Be safe around here!

BEAUTIFUL VIEW! We woke up early to go see this beauty at sunrise-Definitely worth it! I’m sure it’s beautiful during the day but when we drove by it later that morning (around 10am) it was beyond packed! So be the early riser and go before the crowd! There is a small walk to the view that includes sand and some rocks so wear some good shoes if you don’t want sand all over! Definitely worth a stop and view!!!

Very beautiful view of Colorado bending. Large viewing area but very scary as there are no railing. People do very adventurous things here, like sitting on corner stones. Park service is working on putting railing I guess. Evening photos can come good only at sun set, before that sun will be on your camera because the view is on west. So I think morning, afternoon or exactly at sunset would be the good time to see. A short trail from parking to this point. You don't see magnificient view till you reach this point, that is exciting.

A great place to stop while in the area, or worthy of being the destination. Breathtaking, albeit a bit of a climb back up from the overlook. Bring good walking shoes and water. A great stop, recommend stopping in at sunset! A sunrise would be beautiful as well. I was surprisingly impressed with the views and was told this would be one of the last few months that it was free to the public and without guard rails, so go see it while it’s free and free of obstruction!

Very AWESOME view, but very scary. The National Park service is currently putting up fence for people's safety. Great views from the Horseshoe bend. The walk from the parking lot is very long, but well worth the trip.i wouldn't be surprised in a year or two, there will be a charge for parking there. There are lots of bathrooms in the parking lot for the people.
