Recreation

Port Gibson, a place where forests and rivers come together, offers several recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike.


Hunting and fishing are a mainstay of life here in Claiborne County. Lush hardwood forests are home to large populations of wild game like deer and turkey. Canemount Plantation, a hunter's retreat with 10,000 acres of prime woods, offers one of the many venues for accessing these rich game lands.

The marriage of streams and forests are also excellent for hiking and camping. Grand Gulf Military Park offers areas for tent and RV camping. Outdoor enthusiasts can also access the Mississippi River nearby for picnicking and exploring.

Another recreational opportunity is now in the development stages. Iron Horse Trail is a proposed pedestrian trail that will follow about five miles of an abandoned railroad track from downtown Port Gibson to scenic views along the Little Bayou Pierre.
