I am not that intimately familiar with Vicksburg, but check out the area in this link. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=32.351461,-90.883927&spn=0.005338,0.010568&t=h&z=18 It has a boat launch and I believe public parking. It was the finish line for a kayak race I did earlier this year. It is about a mile from the Mississippi River. You may want to call someone (tourist information, visitor's center) to ask if it is public parking. There is also a casino next to this that has plenty of parking, but you would need to check to see if they would allow a vehicle to be parked there over the weekend.
