I recently learned that my g-grandfather had fought at Chickamauga. After driving through the park and spending time at the visitor center, I learned how important and awful the battle was. The staff at the visitor center were very knowledgeable and helpful. They were able to quickly and accurately tell us where to go to see the monument related to... More

This is fantastic for any history buff! The Battle of Chickamauga is on display and allows for a fabulous view. Statues and cannons mark the spot where brave men fought for this country.

The scenery alone makes both of these national military parks worth a visit. Lookout Mountain offers a spectacular view of the Chattanooga River Valley and the one-time battlefield. The area of Chickamauga battlefield is not as spectacular but very scenic. Film presentations at both sites offer easily understandable outlines of these battles. In addition, both have knowledgeable staff and volunteers.... More

It was raining too much Tomball the battlefield but we enjoyed the visitor center and found it very informative; with pictures, murals, displays and a good approximately 30 minute movie about the battles of Chattanooga and Chickamauga. We will definitely come back on a better day to walk the battlefield and view the monuments.

National Park Service has a Jr. Ranger program that makes history so much fun. My grandsons watched the movie, read the exhibits, listened to the audio tour as they searched for clues and answers for booklet questions. Park ranger told stories as he quizzed them about what they saw. Great program plus a free patch!

Great for auto tour with impressive monuments and nice visitor's center and beautiful mountains. Nothing can compare to Gettysburg and if you've been there, don't expect this to be of the same scale. But it is like a smaller version that is more just for auto touring. If you are a history buff, you will love it.

Point Park and Chickamauga Military parks were very awesome. The cell phone audio tour was excellent. The visitor centers were very well done, especially the movie explaining the details of the battle. Would definitely like to visit again, as I have since learned that my ancestors participated in the battle.

Just a few miles south of Chattanooga, this town harbors a very historic battlefield (see separate review). There are very few lodging facilities (beyond Best Western) and equally few nice evening eating places (beyond a fine Mexican restaurant).

First time visitors. Kids learned something they dont learn in school. They were captivated the entire auto tour. Highlight was the tower and climbing the 136 steps to the top. Would return for sure. A must see

The information center was worth stopping at - a very informative 26 minute film about the battle of Chickamauga and Chattanooga. It is a very long driving tour, but the battle sights are well marked. If you are a civil war buff, make sure to see this park. Very moving to see the monuments that recognize each state and men...
