When in Chattanooga, you have to visit Lookout mountain. Lots of history and a great view! Have been here a number of times, a favorite spot in area.

Only $3, this is WELL worth the price! Don't pass it up! DO be careful, though, as some areas are not protected against falls; you might want to keep your children in check for their safety.

Beautiful place to take a walk & amazing views! Its a beautiful ride up to point park as well! Nearby you have the incline railway which you will see on your way up, lookout mountain & ruby falls. A little part of history up here & is worth taking time out to go see it!

I've been to Lookout Mountain all my life and don't know why I've never been to Point Park until this week! It's only $3 a person (used a debit card) and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous views and learning of the history of the battle that took place in the area! There are times posted when there... More

Go for the views of the Tennessee River and Chattanoga, but stay for the history. We arrived just in time for one of the park rangers to give a very informative talk on the Civil War battles and importance of Chattanoga/Lookout Mountain. The talk was a little long (about 40 minutes), but very comprehensive and well worth the time. Don't... More

What a beautiful park and a beautiful view. So glad we went to see this park. Hard to believe the geographic challenge the soldiers dealt with during the battles fought here. Very well kept.

If you visit the park, try to time it when there is a free ranger tour. Anton gave a very detailed explanation of the battles and was very informative if you're interested in the Civil War or local history. Parking is by meter and it may fill up on a busy day. There are a few picnic tables that we... More

Although I have visited Chickamauga numerous times, this was my first visit to the nearby NPS Chattanooga site. The view from Lookout Mountain is breathtaking and one comes away with a true appreciation of the courage and determination of the Union soldiers who conquered the mountains surrounding the city in 1863. The staff is friendly and the Ranger tour well... More

The price is very reasonable, 3.00 per person, there is great parking. The park is very historic and the views off the parks edge at the edge of the mountain, breathtaking. To look out and see on the maps, all the points of interest down below in the valley, is very informative. They have a very nice small museum to... More

Wonderful battlefield park. It's not too big and you can easily see everything in 45mins. We got in free with a National Parks Senior pass, also a plus. But admission was only $3, and is worth every penny.
