I have visited this National Park too many times to count (and driven through it a lot more than that). The park itself is expansive enough to allow for many different experiences (from hiking, to looking at historical markers, to playing games in one of the fields just to name a few). The history of the place will really grab... More

Expansive grounds have cannons, statuary and description, allowing for individual exploration and reflection. The Visitor Center is very well put together, with a store, helpful information desk staff, and docent-led activities. Self-guided displays at the Visitor Center are great, with artifacts and audio that bring this regretable American heritage to life.

We stopped here while visiting the Chattanooga area and were very impressed. It was raining during our visit, but we chose to follow the audio tour that you can get on your cell phone, and we were able to stay in the car. The rain actually almost added a somber feeling to our visit. I grew up in Georgia and... More

Though not big civil war history buff, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Chickamauga battlefield, the very first National Military Park in the US. I recommend starting at the visitors' center, where you can pick up an informative brochure, see a great national park service movie about the battle, and tour a small museum which includes a large gun collection. The staff... More

Tremendously enjoyable and interesting to spend a day at these national military parks. The visitor centers are outstanding. My 10 year old granddaughter was traveling with us and she enjoyed it every bit as much as her grandparents, and learned a lot more than she will in public school as well. Make sure if you are able to hike the... More

My friend is writing about his Great Uncle Pete Bull who died on Mission Ridge. We visited his grave at the National Cemetary in Chattanooga, TN. What a gorgeous, quiet, meditative place it was! Park staff do an incredible job of keeping the place beautifully maintained!

I visited here at the beginning of fall 2012 with some friends who are also huge history buffs. We highly enjoyed the museum and short film presented in the visitors center. We took a quick trip around the grounds, spending a few hours reading the various informative signs along the way. If you are interested in all things Civil War,... More

We are all big Civil War fans, and this was a must see on the way home from a college visit in GA. The visitors center is very well done, especially the movie. It really told the story incredibly well, and we were glad we saw it before beginning to tour the battlefields. My son is a reenactor with both... More

My family and I visited this amazing park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We spent 6 wonderful hours there and I'm so glad we did. The first thing we did was watch a brief film on the history. My kids were even touched by the sacrifice and sadness of the war. The visitor center was very informative with lots to... More
