  • This was hard to find. I tried on two occasions. Finally found it on the third attempt. Signs need to mark it better. It is all the way in the back of a subdivision literally!. I thought I missed a tu...  more »

  • This civil war park is extremely well done, even better than some of the National Parks that I have visited. It was a bit confusing when I entered the park, but I followed the sign to stop one where I...  more »

  • Outstanding new local park located at one of the Union army winter camps in 1862/63. The displays are excellent. Excellent walking trails. Highly recommended for one hour stop or daily walking.
  • Great newer historical park about an important part of our history in the area. Plenty to do, and a lot to learn. The car tour is a must. The park is relatively new and may expand and evolve over time, but is limited because the area, in the middle of no where, is being developed.
  • Maintained very well. More people need to know about this place. A very emotional experience walking around here.
  • A unique historical civil war setting well worth the time to explore. Nice trails (some paths are steep) for walking in a woodland setting. Will give Civil War history buffs an appreciation for the conditions Union troops lived in just prior to the Battle of Fredericksburg.
  • This is a small, but interesting park. Federal soldiers encamped here over the winter and there are quite a few archaeological sites to explore, mainly forts and hut locations. Also a rebuilt example of a soldier's hut and a few cannon. I found it to be very peaceful smd think it would be enjoyable as a local to hike the trails. I went for the history aspect, and though it isn't the site of a major battle, I still found it to be worth the stop .
