  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very awesome historical site. You can tour the inside and watch a movie about Pea Ridge all for free. If you want to drive through it will cost you $15. per car but it is definitely worth it.
  • Awesome park. Best of all, it is often not busy. I love to drive up to the ridge on drizzly days and watch the deer come out and graze in the fields below.
  • A big, desolate piece of history. Devastating for the South. Worth your time if you are interested in the Civil War.
