  • The Chickamauga Battlefield is home to hundreds of monuments and cannons that show off the history of this epic battle in the Civil War. The Visitors Center is impressive in scale and details. You can take a self-guided tour along the major stops and listen in to the narrator. We love coming here for all the history as well as the huge open spaces to play in and take pictures of, especially with the Fall colors (not to mention all the Pokestops here now). ;)
  • There are two points of this park, and both can be a little hard to find with the GPS, so make sure you check out the map and where the visitor center is before you go! That being said, we toured the lookout mountain section, where Pointe Park is. This is the location of the famous battle above the clouds. We enjoyed the history and the overlook! Comprehending how people climbed up that mountain during gunfire is incredible. As always, if you have children make sure you check out the National Park System's Junior Ranger Program.
  • The Chickamauga Battlefield is a beautiful park and is an excellent park to both drive and walk through. Because the park is so large, I recommend that you stop by the visitor center and get an audio tour. It will make for a much better visit. Also, the main road through the park is a public highway so it can be heavily travelled during early morning and early evening hours.
  • This battlefield is one of the most historic fields in the Tennessee-Georgia area. Massive fields, hills, and trees await your adventure throughout a civil war soldiers perspective. If you think you won't be able to visualize what went on 100+ years ago you are mistaken. The cannons, monuments, historic houses, gloomy forests, frequent reenactments provide the perfect sensory situations. Whether you are a child or a senior there is always something to do. Daily biking tours are great for family fun, and you may learn something new too! Camping sites for the strong hearted are also available.(just watch out for green eyes!) You will never be bored by visiting this battlefield, but rather sore feet from the want to explore. Keep Safe and adventure on!
  • I love Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. Living in Chattanooga, it is a quick trip to go somewhere for a hike, see a ranger program on the Civil War, or take out-of-town guests on a tour. Besides the main battlefield, there's also Point Park on Lookout Mountain--I recommend the hike from Cravens House up to the park--and several other NPS-managed sites in and around Chattanooga, like Moccasin Bend, Orchard Knob, and Missionary Ridge.
