Eco-Friendly Notes

The EcoTrail at Tunica RiverPark now accomodates bike riders as well as walkers. Consisting of a boardwalk and a wilderness trail, the two passageways meander through a combined 3.1 miles of unspoiled Delta forest. As you traverse over creeks and ponds, you will see native flora and encounter a few of the locals - like turtles, lizards, waterfowl, or even a deer or two.

To protect our wetlands, visitors are asked to please stay on the trail and deposit trash in designated areas. The RiverPark staff are available to answer questions and provide assistance if needed.

Pet Friendly Notes

Pets are allowed in the Tunica RiverPark outdoor grounds, including the EcoTrail paths. Pets must be on a leash accompanied by an adult and cannot be left unattended. Pets are NOT allowed within the Mississippi River Museum or Tunica RiverPark building. Please be mindful to pick-up after your pets.
