This is a great piece to see some American history. The park is very clean and the staff was very helpful and informative. It is great that we have the opportunity to be able to see what is left of an important event. It is very affordable at $10 for a carload of people. Make sure to watch the cannon... More

Wonderful to see and hear about Civil War events I wasn't aware of. So pleased our National Park on Pea Ridge is so well done, gave me goose bumps to watch the movie, quite emotional, proud to be an American!

I am a huge Civil War buff and have been to many battlefields. This park is one of the best preserved, and lays out the events of a confusing battle clearly and well. All all a historical gem not to be missed for those with an interest in the Civil War

This is a great place to visit if you like history. Alot happened here. The fee for the tour is worth it as your ticket is good for 3 days allowing you to return if you want. You drive your own car following the arrows to Telegraph Rd. This road was built in 1838 linking Springfield MO to Fort Smith... More

We stopped here and just gave a couple hours. There is so much to do and see that you could spend the whole day here. The inside museum has lots of history. Then you can travel the paved road through the park. It is beautiful with lots of area's to stop off at. There are deer roaming around and hiking... More

Huge battle 3100 killed in battle, important strategic mistakes could be seen by watching the movie and then touring the battlefield. Elkhorn Tavern was powerful to see and below it the field where 10000 troops massed. Most importantly dont trust your GPS guidance. The park is near Pea Ridge and I dont know what is in Garfield which is 30... More

This is a venue that even the casual Civil War fan will find fascinating and educational. The venue contains great artifacts from the battle. In addition there is a movie that really explains the battle and there are two models, one for each day of the battle which really shows what happened in a great visual format. After you have...

The lookout over the top of the battlefield is not to be missed. Overall layout of the site was very good and helped us understand the battle.

One forgets that the Civil War had battles that were waged as far west as NW Arkansas, but the battle of Pea Ridge was a significant win for the Union Troops who were outnumbered. This site offers a wonderful visitor's center with displays of artillery, uniforms, and battle strategies, as well as a 30 minute video that provides a wonderful... More
