Well attended to, plenty of markers and monuments to detail the events and location of the different scirmiches and battles that took place. Great movie (20 minutes) telling the tale of the battle. The National Park Service does a great job of preserving this piece of US history.

The museum center has an extensive collection of civil war rifles and arms. There is a well stocked history bookstore and the 30 min video is balanced and well done. Overall, highly recommended.

Chickamauga is a massive battlefield that deserves a visit by students of the Civil War. The battle was a confusing event so plan to spend at least 2-3 days and do your pre-reading. Maps are a must. There is much to see and lots of ground to walk and monuments to visit.

One of the best battlefields I have ever visited. Driving tour was outstanding. The visitor center was great with the videos and gun collection. The ranger talks and tours are so informative. Really is a great experience.

There is a wonderful driving tour that you can take to see the myriad of monuments. Like all National Parks, it was clean and well taken care of. We really liked it!

Traveling with several boys on a BSA high adventure trip, we decided to stop for an educational portion from the Civil War. We walked up and immediately felt like we stepped back into history. It was very hot that morning but the group of teens we were with had no issues, they were so distracted by the things to see.... More

Great place for some history with the family. Drove and stopped at the areas the kids wanted to explore and read. Self guided tour fit our family perfect and the tower view was great! The video was very explicit and really made you view both sides with compassion.

It has been 10 yrs. since we last visited. Obviously not alot has changed. We bought the CD car tour in the bookstore and it was rather confusing how it doesn't correspond with the other car tour. We kept backtracking.....a little frustrating in the heat. We tried to make the most of it though and enjoy it. I would def... More

This is really a very nice National "Park." Plenty of monuments & signs. Unless you are a Civil War fan on steroids, you can easily be overwhelmed by the great details available. A less detailed overview was all I needed. Great visitor's center, too.
