Grand Ecore Visitor Center


From a 80 foot high bluff, the J. Bennett Johnston Waterway Grand Ecore Visitor Center offers extraordinary views of Red River. The grounds are host to wildlife, cultural and historical displays of the area and waterway exploration and navigation information. A walking trail is available for visitors to get a first-hand glance at Civil War entrenchments.
Visitors will learn about the role of the Corps of Engineers in the development, preservation and enhancement of water resources in the region. Nine interior exhibits cover the history, present and future of the waterway. We are proud of our Waterway, our facilities, and of the thousands of people who enjoy the benefits of living near the Red River.
