The park was amazing so much history packed in the tour The video at the visitor center is a must and be sure to check out the rifle collection its stunning to see so many in one room The park is full of memorials and the tower view was worth the stairs to get to the top

The battlefield was fun and very informative. The visitor center has a movie that helps you understand what's happening. We arrived during a storm that had taken down numerous trees so there were numerous streets closed. That made the traveling very confusing. I would NOT recommend getting the CD to drive with as it is more confusing than it did... More

It's a really big place. There are several locations. The main one covers a large battle and there are monuments everywhere. Somewhat like the battle itself it is a little confusing. There is a lot of history and the tour is nice. It's not quite at the level of Gettysburg but it is a pretty cool experience and it shows... More

This park was the first battlefield memorial park in the U. S. It covers a large area of hallowed ground just south of Chattanooga, TN. The visitor center is well done and has many exhibits and information to help visitors. The museum of firearms is well worth the trip for anyone interested in the history of firearms or would like...

What a TRUE testament to the strength, the detail, and the care that the state of Tennessee puts into honoring those who fought on their civil war battlefields!  The Visitors Center/museum itself is beautiful upon entry, filled with information and great Rangers who obviously care about this history.  Also, an incredible collection of rifles, and an excellent short video on...

But the cd they sell you does not match anything... Meanwhile, it is certainly a significant battlefield that people interested in history would do well to traverse.

What a treasure in North Georgia! The visitor center features a large variety of historic items such as: firearms, clothing and a wonderful gift shop. Start your visit there, make sure that you watch the 26 minute film in the spacious auditorium before entering the park. See one of the rangers at the center to get your little ranger a... More

We took advantage of the ranger led auto tour. Our ranger was amazing! So informative and entertaining. The visitor center is very user friendly and filled with interesting pieces.Would recommend this as a stopping point if in the area.

A small group of college fraternity brothers and wives, most of us retired, and all with an interest in the Civil War, have toured battlefields in several states. We've found that having a guide helps, and Rick Manion of White Star Battlefield Tours was recommended to us for Chickamauga and Chattnooga. Great recommendation! Rick is knowledgeable, interesting, low key (doesn't... More

The 2 parks are a few miles apart. Chickamauga has a wonderful museum and an excellent introductory film to set the scene before you visit the battlefield area. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The drive through the park is less interesting as it is flat and tree covered. Therefore, you can see little of the battlefield as it was... More
