This was an awesome place to go. We got in free for national park 100 years. Normally I think it is $5 person. It is a national park. The views are amazing and you can see some cool cannons from the civil war. Great photo opportunities. My favorite place in Chattanooga.

It has admission, but the price is worth it for the fabulous views of The Tennessee River Valley, Chattanooga and surrounding environs. If you're a Civil War buff you get an added bonus.

The view alone is reason enough to visit. The historical and educational value would be also. Put them together and this is a must see on Lookout Mountain. Rock City on the other end of the mountain is worth seeing as well.

Very informative park. Great views. Steps down to the musuem were kind of hard for the grandparents but they made it. Wish we would have had more time to hike the trails.

I love Point Park, it's like a hidden gem. The view of Chattanooga is amazing. If you have a interest in Civil War history, it's a wonderful place to learn some of its history. We hiked to the Craven House it takes a few hours but totally worth it.

We found this place on trip advisor, was only $5 a person to visit compared to the $60 the tourists stops going up the mountain wanted to charge! They try to divert you from going up the mountain farther, don't pay the money just to see some beautiful scenery! Go to POINT PARK, pay the $5 and you will see... More

We stopped here on a Saturday morning before we headed out of town. There is a small fee of $5 per person (age 15 and under are free) to get into the park. The views of the Tennessee River and Chatenooga valley are impressive. We were able to watch a recreation of a civil war battle infantry march and fire... More

There seems to be a fee to enter here but I can't confirm that as we did not enter the park. We stayed around the outside perimeter and parked at the metered parking. There was a grassy area with just enough opening in the tree line to launch a drone to catch some great footage of the top of the... More

Point Park is must see for anyone staying in the area or just passing through. We had very little time, so we just walked around the park, taking in all the great views and spent a few minutes in the little museum down a short trail. We stamped our National Parks Passport on the way out. The area appears to... More
