Stopped by for a visit since admission was free (National Park celebration day) and we were very impressed. The view of the city was outstanding and there were several different vantage points. Our group enjoyed all of the photo opportunities and there was even a few rocks to climb on. Be careful and mindful if bringing small children since there... More

Had the chance to experience this park on our recent trip to Chattanooga. Although the entrance was a little confusing (we went inside the store to pay our admission. We drove up and that was a little nerve wracking but the view was worth it, beautiful gem. there are lots of paths to climb and a little museum. note we... More

I took a Civil War Tour of Point Park/Chattanooga Battlefield with Richard "Rick" Manion of White Star Battlefield Tours last Saturday morning. A history professor, Rick is the consummate Chickamauga and Chattanooga subject matter expert. While most tourists visit the better-preserved Chickamauga Battlefield, Rick gave me an incredibly detailed six-hour tour of Chattanooga (Lookout Mountain, Orchard Knob, Missionary Ridge, and...

We took the Incline Railroad up Lookout Mountain and discovered this park. What a great bonus to go along with the Incline Railroad. The park is at the top of the mountain and just three easy walking blocks from the train station at the top of the mountain. Lots of history and trails to discover. Give yourself plenty of time...

this is a short walk but the views are incredible. The cost is only 3.00. It's a national park and has a civil war battlefield and information about the battle. There are cannons and a fort that I could not go down to because of the climbing back up. I am going back when I can walk down. This is... More

We loved this park, the view of the valley is unparalleled. We only wish we would have arrived earlier, as the visitor center closes at 5 and we didn't have enough time to spend in the visitor center (1/2 hour is NOT enough time). We stayed at the park for about an hour, even though it was extremely cold for... More

Wanted to see some Civil War history, so stopped at Point Park. $3 fee at the park office. Spent about 45 minutes in the park center reading about the battles at Point Park and watching the video. Then, went over to the park and walked around the main perimeter where the cannons were. The cannon positions have info about what... More

We visited here while in Chattanooga for my daughter's Spring Break. We had a very good time....but we are all history sight seeing people. There is a lot of history to be learned from here. It does involve a lot of walking which we enjoyed. There are several opportunities to venture off on hiking trails. We opted for the 1.5... More

We took our two young boys to check it out while on vacation. $3 to get in for adults and kids under 15 free. Great views and lots of history. Looks to have some great hiking trails though with the kids we passed. Would love to go back for an adults only visit. Overall, worth the drive and money. Park... More
