We came by in the afternoon on a Sunday. We stopped at the visitor's center first. A ranger was starting a talk with some children and my son joined in. They tried on soldier's clothes and talked about their equipment. Then we watched a 23 min video about the Battle of Chickamauga (and Chattanooga). There is a small museum area... More

A well-kept park to drive through or bring bikes and ride. In the evening you can see lots of deer though you may spot a few during the day as well.

Nice place to take the children to get a more clear picture of the past. My daughter always remembers thing better when she can see them and really be there. So this was a good place for her.

I feel it is worthy of comparison to Ghettysburg. Although it doesn't have the famous Lincoln speech, Chattanooga/Chickamauga saw their share of bloody battle. The historical preservation is ever growing and impressive, the educational opportunities are good resource as well. If you have time or live locally I recommend riding the horse trails or biking around the park. I have... More

It is awe inspiring to imagine what action was seen on these quiet fields during the Civil War. The monuments are so majestic as they rise up around the park. Depending on the time of year, you could see a wide array of wildlife. Deer are very plentiful esp. around dusk so please be watchful if you are driving through... More

The Chattanooga site is scattered across Lookout Mountain and there are trails across the mountain linking the sites. An excellent view of Chattanooga, showing you how key it was to hold the high ground. They have s small visitor center on tip. Immportant to go to the Chickamauga site to gain an understanding of the battles that occured here. Chickamauga... More

The Park is restoring many of its monuments and boy are they impressive. Also the Visitor Center has a fantasic collection of rifles from the length of American history. Beautiful woods to hike in too.
