Men in the hull of the Steamboat Bertrand excavating artifacts.

The Bertrand Steamboat Excavation Site houses the buried and underwater 178-foot steamboat hull. Enjoy the views of the site by walking the quarter of a mile trail, or stop into the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center that holds the over 250,000 artifacts removed from the hull in 1968 and 1969. For a longer hike, an eighth of a mile spur connects to the Cottonwood and Grassland trails just north of the excavation site.
