Super Nice Park !!

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... read more

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.

Our family visited this battlefield last week. We had a great time, the area is huge. A few things I would suggest. Do a little home work before you go, find out about the battle. Watch the movie when you get to the welcome center. This will help you understand the why, where, & how. It make it easier as... More

My father and I arrived early in the morning on a weekday and there were very few people there. The was so much to see and most of it is accessible with a short walk from the road. We used the tour that is available via mobile phone and learn a great deal about the history here. The visitors center... More

We loved the little museum of the 7th Calvary and Ft. Oglethorpe! This is prior to the entrance to the museum. The little drive was full of monuments and historical markers and cannons. It was not too long so you could do it quickly or take your time. It was not crowded. We enjoyed it as well as the museum... More

This is an awesome place to visit. My grandchildren were fascinated with all the cannons and buildings located there, especially the lookout tower located in the park.

We road through first on the main road then decided to go back to the visitor center. I recommend you go there first. Lots of nice exhibits and a movie though I didn't get to see it since I had to stay outside with the dog. Next time I'll get to go in.

I have returned here 4 times. I have used the in car CD auto tour 3 of those times to enjoy the sites and locations of the park. The wildlife in the park is in great abundance everywhere as is the history that happened here.

Rangers were extremely helpful, friendly and desirous to impart their information. The movie was outstanding and sets the stage for what one will see on the battlefield. Minimal information in the phamlet. This location offers a ranger-led auto tour (1.5 hours) as well as a self-guided tour. The down side is that for the ranger-led tour requires 6 adults.....that early... More
