  • I stopped here on a perfect fall afternoon as I was headed north on I-49 back to KC. It is a short drive off the interstate, but certainly worth it. As with all national parks the staff were very help...  more »
  • Good stop for Civil War buffs and others interested in history. Very informative visitors center and signage along the route. Close to the highway, so it’s an easy stop and a good place to stretch you...  more »
  • My father is a Ruddick descedant from the family who owned land at this location. I have a very strong connection to this park. Well worth a trip.  more »

  • A wonderful little park that my son and I visited on a beautiful spring day. We highly recommend the drive around so that you can see the battlefield from the east overlook. It's just a short hike from the road and worth the effort.
  • Love the history behind this place. This is the site of one of the most game changing event in history. There are tons of cannons intact, and the overlooks gives you an idea of what the brave men on both sides of the fence faced. This is a great place for a child or anyone who loves history.
  • A beautiful place of American history. They have a staff that enjoys sharing the history of the battlefield. They also have a small theatre area that will show programs of the history as well. They have a roughly 7mile loop going around the park. You can see the nature, cannons, the type of fortifications that were utilized with some guided tours with parks guide.
  • We enjoy riding our bikes around the loop (7ish miles) we have also practiced backpacking. Good overlooks and neat history.
  • The rangers are so friendly and knowledgeable. The museum was well laid out and so interesting! I learned a lot. The drive around the park was fascinating. Take your time driving the perimeter of the park. Walk on the trails and enjoy the wildlife. This park is well worth our time.
