This is a very nice stop. For $15 you get a carload of people in. The visitors center was being worked on so the fee was waved. The park is laid out on a single lane road (loop) for about seven miles. The battlefield views...More

The exhibits explained the significance of the park and who was involved. This civil war site has a movie explaining what happened at Pea Ridge. Definitely a good site to visit.

Pea Ridge battlefield was just the right size for a half day visit. The stops are very well marked and makes it easy to navigate the self guided auto tour. Some interesting history contained here in this park and notated well in the movie and...More

I continued to learn about the civil war and wondered how such a beautiful place had to be a place of such tragedy. The trails were beautiful. The exhibits were superior. It is too bad so many lost their lives to make this place a...More

this is the place for you. Beautiful grounds surround you. Very serene. Not as large as Vicksburg but this was a smaller battle. God Bless the men who died.

It’s always a great idea to Find Your Park, even in the cold and rainy day in October, jeeping around the Natural State on this cool wet rainy day of October, we highly recommend at least taking the 7 mile auto tour at this history...More

Quick weekend trip to NWA with kids: what to do? (2 Replies)
We're in the Kansas City area and are thinking of making our first trip to NWA. We have 2 kids (6 and 8), ideal trip length is 2 days, 1 night (kids have a couple days off school but parents need to be back for the work week, unfortunately.) Our one "can't miss" activity is visiting the Crystal Bridges Art Museum in Bentonville, so we were planning to make that our focus. To round out the trip, we're interested in visiting Fayetteville for a half day (or more) to see the university and...More
