All of the Civil War Battlefields I've visited seem to be so well maintained and offer so much information that I could spend hours there learning new things that books don't tell you. Chickamauga is no exception. There are always so many personal stories and seeing artifacts and the actual battlefield with the terrain you only read about, well it... More

We've brought family here twice now. Great little visitor center which is like a museum. Easy driving tour to follow. Great sites to see, a lot of information available. Good photo opportunities.

We have just discovered military parks in our travels and have enjoyed visiting them. This one is very large and has several areas to visit. So nicely done. So much to learn. I believe this was the first military park that was created in the NPS.

I live in this area so we visit it often. We love walking in this park and there are many trails. Trails that are easy and others that will challenge you. They also have trails that horses and bikes can go on. Or can drive around to see the various areas. Some areas are only accessed via walking but they... More

I drive through the park going to business meetings when I'm in the area. I have visited many monuments, stopped and watched the deer and reflected on what the monuments stand for and all that have died in that park. It's always peaceful and serene and a morning drive through fog is usually my favorite time to drive through. The... More

Had been to Chattanooga Battlefield Park, but not Chickamauga. It has a remarkable visitor's center with extremely knowledgeable staff. Was able to precisely identify where my Grt Grandfather's unit marker (35th Ill Infantry) was located and gave us some really valuable information. The movie about the battle in the center theater was excellent. Wish we had more time to investigate... More

We love history and this is such a wonderful chance to immerse yourself. The visitor center is excellent with knowledgeable park rangers, interesting and interactive exhibits and a wonderfully creative and informative movie. The audio driving tour is also exceptional and a fabulous opportunity to experience the expanse of the park in the comfort of your vehicle. Weather hasn't cooperated... More

This site was so large we couldn't even see it all! We spent mid morning through the afternoon at the visitor center and the surrounding fields and monuments, but there was so much to see! Our 12 year old daughter did the Jr. Ranger Booklet, and if you plan on your kids doing this, allow for plenty of time to... More

Started our tour at the Visitor's Center. It is worth the stop both for the information you can get there, but the movie that explains the battlefield and the action on the ground that we walked on. The exhibits were also very interesting - especially the gun collection - whether you like guns or not. The auto tour is easily... More

This was my first stop to a Civil War Battlefield, and it definitely won't be my last. We rolled in w/about 2.5 hours before sunset, and my family of 6 would have loved to keep exploring, if we had the time. It was amazing to walk the grounds and see where Union lines had broken, and how the Confederates took... More
