“Sept trip”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We got there too late in the day to do the hike. But the information at the actual park was very interesting. Very pretty drive into the park.

“Excellent piece of history”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We found this out of the way place on our drive back from Tennessee to Indiana, we have three kids who need to get out of the car and stretch their legs every once in a while. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent here. We walked the 3/4 mile gravel trail to the top of Hoosier Knob where the battle took place. Very few soldiers actually died here. We took a short cut from the top back through the woods and cut our hike a lot on the way back. At the top of the knob you can still see the trench that the soldiers dug. Every little bit on the trail were signs telling you about the battle and what happened. There is a cannon on top of the hill also. We also walked down to the spring, which was only 300 feet from the beginning of the trail. This side trip was beautiful and informative if you are at all interested in the civil war. I was going to post pictures, but all of my pictures are larger than trip advisor allows.

“Great history lesson”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you ever get the chance to experience Camp Wildcat Battlefield ...do it. The maps, the people, the campfires, the cannons, the strategy and the way of life is before the battle.... it really makes you think about the tough times we had as a country during the Civil War. Spend an hour or all day but put ;this on your bucket list.

“Neat”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

This is way off main roads and you have to go down narrow gravel roads to get there. Not a lot there. There are a few trails but we walked none of them. There was a cemetery as well. Said there was a spring but didn't see it. It may of been down the trail called Robinson Spring Trail. Nice little adventure to take if you need a break from driving on 75.
