I have been to Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park on multiple occasions, and all fairly recently and I have enjoyed it every bit as much as I have the previous. The museum is the perfect size for taking school age children and even for those that don't know much about the US Civil War. The museum also offers and excellent... More

The Kennesaw Battlefield is a small but beautiful National Park. The rangers are knowledgeable and personally take you on the thralls to explain the battles that occurred on and around the mountain. If you are a history buff, this is a must see!

Five years ago, I visited Kennesaw Mountain every weekend. I hiked up Kennesaw and over Pigeon Hill to Dallas highway. Sometimes I went as far as Cheatham Hill. But I was just getting exercise preparing to hike the Appalachian Trail. Today, I visited Kennesaw as a tourist. I never appreciated Kennesaw until today. I will concede, the museum is not... More

This park is beautiful. It is so amazing to be driving through suburbia with all of it's shopping centers and then, poof, you're in the middle of a national park. It feels similar to Smoky Mountain National Park or Gettysburg. There are nice signs throughout explaining the history of the area from the Native American settlements to the Civil War.... More

We were on a tight time budget, so we drove to the top of the mountain instead of walking like we had planned. It was a definitely a good thing that we drove, as we had our very active little 5-year-old, and there is no way we would have gotten her up there without major whining and tears. It's a... More

Almost in our backyard this place is like a miniature Gettysburg. The museum since being redone is educational and the trails to walk or run are fantastic. The top of the mountain has great views all around.

There is a great museum with interesting artifacts. The battlefield and mountain trail are fantastic. The mountain view is outstanding and you can see the city of Atlanta from afar. Well worth the climb!

We live just down the road from this great National Park and it is a haven for history buffs and people that want to exercise by hiking to the top of the mountain. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff there are all very friendly people and are more than happy to answer questions. We love our little... More

I am a big fan of national parks. This one is more about outdoor recreation with many hiking trails. Their is a nice visitors center with a museum, but as for actual history on the site their is not much that details what occurred. Today we took a hike to the top and enjoyed a nice view of Atlanta and... More
