I went to ride my bicycle around the battlefield loop (7.5 miles) and soak up some history at the same time. The visitors center has parking, restrooms, gift shop, and a museum. The driving, or in my case bike, loop is well marked and easy to follow. There are written historic markers along the route, but you can also use... More

This is a huge two location battlefield site. These battles resulted In a Union victory, and a Confederate victory. When you enter the grounds, you are greeted by a large Visitor Center, where you mayview exhibits, and a film about the battles. There is a gift shop, and library, where you can purchase books on the Civil War, or view... More

As usual another good National Park. Informative film at the centre and good shop to brows books. The park rangers are knowledgeable and friendly.

We've visited National Parks and Civil War sites throughout the Southeast, and Chickamauga is one of the most fascinating. On our visit, there were historical interpreters giving demonstrations of various aspects of Civil War life. The drive through the sprawling park area is amazing. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time, because there's a lot of see.

I came with my Aunt and family for an after lunch activity. There is so much you see! The visitors center is a must with all the Civil War Era weapons and history. The parks is great & well shaded. It's great for biking or a slow drive. There's a lot more to see than you can squeeze into 1... More

My cousin and I came to the Fort as kids but know we are older we wanted to experience it as adults. We wish we would've caught the tour @10 or 2 but we used our scan and followed the tour. We enjoyed going through the monuments and reading our history. We grabbed the map from the visitors center and... More

We went on a Thursday morning in search of my daughters second Junior Ranger badge. She was given a booklet to fill out after visiting some of the stops in the park. The park is divided into 8 stops if you follow the tour signs. There is an audio tour where you call in at each stop. You can also... More

We were traveling back home and were looking for some inexpensive stops to break up the drive. We thought that some historical sites would be interesting. We wish we would have allowed more time for this stop!! The information center was open till 5, so we only had a half hour to spin through. They have a nice little gift... More

At great cost this nations thrives. These two battlefields, one a Confederate victory and one a Union victory produced heroes on both sides. Be sure to hit the Chickamauga Visitor Center for a great film about the horror that took place there. A wonderful rifle collection is on the site as well. The audio tour is amazing and really just... More
