Travel back in time to an early 1800’s camp on the river. Visit with Indians, Frontiersmen, Traders, and Travelers. Music, demonstrations and food, all at the only museum on the Alabama River. Gift shop and Concessions available. Once there you will see reenactors explaining how the first inhabitants of Monroe County lived. You will witness how life along the banks of the Alabama River would have been when the area was filled with settlers, Creek Indians and militia. You will witness what life in a typical camp site would have looked like and be able to ask the demonstrators questions, as well as join the Creek Indians in a traditional game of stick ball and dance. From Monroeville, take Highway 41 North and go 8 miles. Turn left onto County Road 17. Follow the signs to the Claiborne Lock and Dam and River Museum. (Total mileage from Monroeville: 19 miles)
