This is a beautiful park as well as an historical place. On a clear day you can see five states from on top of Lookout Mountain. You can park for free if you follow the sign to go behind the National Park Service building. It's $3 to go thru the park. If you are a senior, you can get a... More

We have been to this park many times in the past 5 years. My wife and I visit Chattanooga about once a month or so, and we probably stop by this park about half the times we visit. It is a nicely tended park, with some interesting and appealing Civil war memorials. There is a very small museum down the... More

Was fortunate enough to make it up to lookout mountain last weekend. Wasn't a long drive from Chattanooga and was very scenic on the way up to the top. Point Park is different from several of the other attractions that you'll hear about/pass on your way up (Ruby Falls & Rock City). Those attractions carry a little bit higher price... More

I love visiting here. You can catch some really amazing and scenic views of the scenic city from here! The valleys, the Tennessee river bends, the city and nature. We happened to come on a free national parks weekend. I think it's only a few bucks normally to get in but you can also visit the civil war monuments and... More

Entrance fee is only $3 for adults and free for kids. The views would have been great if Chattanooga would be a pretty city- but it's not! Chattanooga looks from above uglier then it looks already if you drive through! Nothing to see except industrial parks or factories or maybe the river. It's a tiny park you can quickly walk... More

Difficult to get a big vehicle to the top, lots of tight residential area to maneuver around. For that, I'm disappointed. However, once we got to the top (don't try it with a large RV or in the winter), we enjoyed getting the perspective of the battlefield and better understanding significance of the site. It's important to know that there... More

We rode the Incline Railway towards the end of the day. This was just a few blocks away. It offered some nice views with cannons in the foreground for neater pictures. You can read about some of the history in the park itself but much more information is located at the visitor center. My 10 and 6 yr olds loved... More

Had a great afternoon walking around Lookout Mountain. $3 per adult admission. Free parking behind the visitor center. Check there before paying for street parking. Street parking is 15 minutes for .25 cents. The park has great vistas. We were fortunate enough to be there as a thunder storm rolled in over the hills. Sounds of thunder I can only... More

Ok, I will preface this by saying I am never going to give an "excellent" mark or possibly even a "Very Good" mark to any attraction having to do with war! I served my time in the Navy and Vietnam and that was enough. However, if you are a military history buff, and yes there are many of you, then... More
