I recommend walking the 1.5 miles from Craven's House up the trail to point park to get a good idea of what they mean by the battle above the clouds, from there, visit the theater and the newly opened Och's Museum and pay your newly increased fee of 7$ or so on your way to the theater and gift shop....

As a big history fan and a photographer, this was a little bit of heaven. The park is pretty much a giant circle and is about a 20 minute walk from the lookout mountain incline. There is a way to drive up to this park if you do not want to go on the incline. I highly suggest going when... More

It's a shame this place is so easily missed. Absolutely incredible park. Some of the best views I've ever seen and wide open access to them. No queing up in a line. Beyond this there's many neat places to explore here and a lot of interesting history. We wound our way down to the small museum which was really cool... More

This was a last minute stop on our way through Chatanooga in early January. Definitely worth the trek up the mountain. The views are breathtaking on the way up and from the park itself. Staff was very friendly and more than happy to come out to greet us and answer any questions though we were the only visitors in the... More

Small national park that was on our itinerary for visiting battlefields. The park itself is very peaceful and a great vantage point for looking at Chattanooga and it's surrounding areas.

This is a must see for visiting Chatanooga. So much history to learn here. Don't forget your camera ...breath taking views. Reenactment is a plus too. Children under 15 are free. Adults $3.00. Worth it!!

We had limited time to spend at Point Park, and it was quite a cold day (November) but the walk around the park was easy and pleasant and includes a good summary of Military History. We began our tour in the Park Office before walking in the park. I recommend watching the short video at the office that explains the... More

I have to admit I am a little afraid of heights so I didn't really want to go to Look Out Mountain, Point Park was an excellent alternative for me. The views were beautiful. My little one had room to run and I could enjoy the history and the beauty as we strolled on a paved path. There were some... More

First off it is only $3 per person. There is a trick to parking. Right behind the visitors center is a parking area that is not metered. It is very small. The views are indescribable. Make sure you see the museum, and the battlefield mural (it is in the visitors center).
