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

Hiking through history in a Tennessee spring for only $3 is a brilliant way to spend an early Saturday morning. We went along the Bluff Trail to Sunset Rock. Along the way we stopped and watched icicles melting and ancient rock formations coming to life in the rising sun. Walking along W Brow Road back to our car was a... More

The Lookout Mountain Battlefield Visitor Center is a small National Park Service facility atop Lookout Mountain. It gives a brief overview of Chickamauga, Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge battles. Also known as Point Park, this is a lovely setting to see the city of Chattanooga, the Tennessee River and the mountains - so that you can put it all into... More

This was my first opportunity to visit the "Battle Above the Clouds" Battlefield by Chattanooga, TN. I wasn't disappointed. The view was tremendous. About a 300 degree view of the surrounding area. It was 9am and about 25 degrees outside. Low fog to the east along the valley floor make it look eerie at times. I took lots of pictures... More

I have been to many civil war battlefields. They did a good job organizing, preserving, and telling the story. The audio tour is easy to follow. My only regret was because of the weather we could not walk the fields. Plenty of monuments and the story is told well in gone film. Nice visitors center. The film is shown regularly... More
