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

If you are into civil war history, this is one place you need to visit. The visitors center has a lot of exhibits for you to look at. Then you take the drive around the battlefield at your pace. There are stops along the way to give you an insight to the battle.

My husband is a history buff, so we had to visit this park. It's a beautiful drive. The information center is packed with relics and lots of information. Our time here was not wasted.

We visited Pea Ridge two weeks ago. At the visitor center, they told us to allow for 30 min to drive through. Three hours later, we finished the drive. You can do it in 30 min, but would miss SO MUCH! Allow plenty of time to explore. Lots of opportunity for walking and hikes. We even got within 20 feet... More
