  • Stopped at the Olustee Battlefield but there is nothing to see. A bunch of old signs that you can't even read as you walk along the trail.

  • This is a great location year round, it has the same appeal as other larger parks in Florida; but what really sets this place apart is the Civil War reenactments that happen here. I don't put my stamp of approval on any/all Civil War reenactments, but having seen these first hand on multiple occasions I can say that they have no ill will or negative intentions in what they're doing. The reenactments here leave a great impression of what average day-to-day life was like for soldiers of both sides during the war, if you're even a little bit of a history buff this is definitely worth checking out.
  • Stop by during the reenactment and plan to come back when no one is there. You can learn something both times.
  • Very nice little park for a picnic and learn some history. Also has hiking trails.
  • Really cool place. Talked to the Ranger and he told us all about the history of this place. He was so nice. He even took a few pictures of us standing by one of the cannons. Great history learning at the place.
  • Loved the visitors center. Nice, air conditioned with displays and a video on a loop explaining not only the battle but the events that brought Florida into the Civil War. Fantastic place for history buffs. The walking trail has an interesting fact posted every couple of feet, the monument is beautiful, the grounds are well kept. Plenty of picnic tables in the shade for you and your family to bring a lunch. There is also a fire tower on the property that was built by the Civil Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. Many things to see even when there isn't a reenactment taking place. (By the way, that happens in February.)
