Indian Camp Plantation had several acres between its entrance and the Mississippi River when it was originally constructed in 1857-59.

After the Great Flood of 1927, the Mississippi levee was reconstructed to a much greater height and reconfigured the landscape up and down the river, essentially removing acres of frontage from the old estates. Indian Camp was no exception.
