Driving through on I-40, thought the history of the place was intriguing. The road to the battlefield was littered, litter Aly, with huge canyon like potholes. The road crumbling. The website said " open now" but at 3:30 pm on a Saturday we arrived to a desolate, all grown up, area. Very sad, but save your time, not worth the... More

The temporary visitor center was closed during business hours. The signage had been vandalized but it also was unreadable as well due to sun damage. Would have liked to know more details. It was difficult to drive and locate to be disappointed. It is sad to see history being lost due to neglect.

Went to Honey Springs this last weekend. The battlefield area was open but there was no staff to be found nor was the visitor 'shed' open. Every informational sign along the trails was unreadable as they had been scratched and weathered. We were very disappointed to not be able to learn anything about the area by our visit. Hopefully the... More

Visited last fall and it has a lot of history. Educational for the whole family, gives a lot of history to the history buffs.

Honey Springs Battlefield is operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society. In the 1990s they developed an extensive system of well-interpreted walking trails and a short driving tour but no visitor center. They are about to open a very nice new visitor center but, ironically, have allowed the walking trails and interpretive signs to deteriorate badly. The story of the battle... More

First of all, it was a bit harder to find the Honey Springs Battlefield than I expected. I knew that it was near the town of Rentiesville, which is northeast of Checotah, OK. I traveled north of Checotah on old US 69, and after a few miles I encountered the intersection with the current US 69 freeway. I should have... More

I forgot this battle existed until I saw the sign on the side of the road. It is an interesting drive back to the park. Its one of those drives that you second guess that you made a wrong turn. The informational placards and monuments were impressive for such a small site. It is amazing that people still care enough... More

This is a must see for any time and especially in November. We visited the site of Honey Springs Civil War Battlefield earlier this year and cant wait for the reenactment in November. The history of all that took place on this site gave me more questions of if my family had been in the civil war, who they were,... More

Honey Springs was the largest battle fought during the Civil War in what was then Indian Territory. The battle is interesting and important and much of the land is preserved and accessible within the park. However, the Oklahoma Historical Society, which runs the place, has neglected its once well-done trail system. The wayside are now illegible (make sure you get... More

I went to this battlefield 10-25-14 while staying in Tulsa with some friends. I had known as a civil war buff that there was a battle in OK but never saw it till today. The first impressions where that they need better signage to let people know where the field is, i had to back-track a bit to find it.... More
