    We got to this park kinda late in the day. There were very few people there, but it was pretty and quite. The points of interest were marked clearly and we enjoyed walking the paths to see and read ab...  more »

    I visited this park as a child but hadn't been back in over 45 years. I first stopped by the welcome center and had a lovely conversation with the park ranger. She was very knowledgeable and spent ove...  more »

    Great military park to see. Video in the visitor center and the exhibits explains the war and battle as well as aftermath. The driving tour is awesome with information and beautiful scenery.  more »

    Wonderful place of great historical impotence. We enjoyed it very much. There is a nice picnic area. However, though there are signs that suggest no picnicking, there were several families picnic and playing games in non-picnic areas. I spoke with the employees at the visitor’s center and they indicated it was quite all right to picnic wherever you like. I personally think it disrespectful of a national historic site. Again, I spoke with the man and woman at the visitor center and it is allowed. So bring family, friends, toys and such and make a party of it. Great place to have a family gathering and party.

    Wonderful place to enjoy a day trip. Lots of history and beautiful scenery. We decided to walk the length of the park since the weather was perfect but it is also an easy drive around the park if you have mobility issues. They also have a guided audio tour which would also be helpful if you have difficulty walking the length of the park. It gives information at each stop and is easy to use by just calling in from your phone. This was especially helpful for my parents who wanted to take a car ride down here after we went but have difficulty walking long distances. Included the picture of the armadillo since we lost count on how many we saw throughout the park. Ha Would recommend!

    Small national park with a nice visit center. A loop road to drive to explore the battlefield. We finish in one hour. Could take more time if we walk more trails.

    This is a very nice place to visit. There could be so much done with this park to bring it back to life.

    A nice park that is underwhelming compared to many other historic battlefields I have visited.Film at visitor center wasn't working.I prefer to walk battlefield rather then drive,but the trail here was lacking in signage.so For exercise take the trail.Otherwise just drive the car loop which would take about an hour.Also after signs all over saying to avoid ticks it would help to maintain the trail so you are not walking thru tall grass.
