Amazing history plus an incredible view of Chattanooga. We took our grandchildren here and enjoyed reading the history, seeing the cannons, and feeling the peace of a place that was once a battlefield. It's only a few minutes off the freeway and well worth the drive to the top.

Have been here before and am still amazed that a Civil War battle was fought at this site! Point Park is well taken care of and signs describing the battle give a sense of what it might have been like during the war. The museum was closed when we had visited before and though it is nothing huge has some... More

To get to this Chattanooga battlefield, you drive 1 mile straight up a beautiful mountain. It only cost $5.00 each to get in and well worth it. They have a small museum, and great pictures of civil war soldiers on both sides, and the history of the photographer that took them. The view from the top is beautiful, and peaceful... More

Amazing views over the Tennessee river at a spot that also immortalizes one of the more famous battles of the Civil War--famous precisely because it was so scenic, the "Battle Above the Clouds", in which Union troops pushed Confederates off of the mountain as part of their efforts to drive the Confederate army away from Chattanooga and toward Atlanta. Peaceful... More

Poised at the top of Lookout Mountain overlooking Chattanooga, TN, and, the surrounding countryside, this is one of the 'must see' attractions in the area. It honors those who fell during the battle of above the clouds where the tide of the Civil War was turning in a major way. The monuments and ranger led discussions are worth the time... More

Peaceful.  That’s the way to describe this park, at the top of what feels like a very small mountain of a drive.  Once there, you enter through a gate that lets you know a lot of care is given to this park, and what a lovely stroll!  The grass, green and lush, manicured and shaped to lead you around to...

My son is a history buff, so we went to the park to look around. There are markers throughout the park honoring the soldiers who served during the civil war. Great views and only 3 blocks from the Incline Railway. $5 a ticket for adults, kids are free

My children loved it. And for the price you can't beat it. This was our first visit to Point park and it exceeded my expectations. It was by far my favorite part of lookout mountain. The fort has the best views. By far beats Rock City. We managed to spend about 2 hours there before we had to leave, and... More

At the very top of lookout mountain is the National state Park, Point Park. It costs five dollars to get in but that is a 7 day pass. Make sure you go across the street to the visitor center for the park because there are some other deals for senior citizens too. The park is quaint with much history, but... More
