  • First time here, a beautiful, peacefully sad place. If you take the car tour, there is one way in and you can stop and call a phone number, and get a little synopsis about the location on your phone. The VERY BEST part of the day was the opportunity to buy a senior pass (62 and older) that will give you entrance into many state parks for ONLY $10.00...forever!!!! The rangers on duty were very friendly and Miss Billie is an amazing face for the park system. Informative, kind and helpful, she was A+++. 9.4.16
  • Put on your walking shoes and have a blast. This historic national park is the place to take the entire family. There are many sights to see and places to explore. Be sure to take some bug spray, water, and comfortable clothing. Poison ivy is in abundance so make sure you know what it looks like. Rules are strictly enforced for everyone's enjoyment.
  • Great staff, very informative, beautiful landscape for pictures or paintings and has considerable size for walking or cycling. Has the largest civil war library out of our national parks. Downside is there are no restrooms except in the main building. Keep in mind before you go for a hike! :)
  • We had a great time here today. Very professional displays. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The 30 min movie about the history was superbly done and the theater area was clean and comfortable. We didn't have time for the auto tour but it is on our list for a return visit.
  • When you walk around Wilson's Creek, it's cool to think you are standing on a part of history. Dogs are welcome anywhere except in the buildings. It's a beautiful place to hike, but watch out for ticks. I pulled 5 off me and about 7 off my dog. But worth it for the experience.
