I drive through the park going to business meetings when I'm in the area. I have visited many monuments, stopped and watched the deer and reflected on what the monuments stand for and all that have died in that park. It's always peaceful and serene and a morning drive through fog is usually my favorite time to drive through. The... More

Had been to Chattanooga Battlefield Park, but not Chickamauga. It has a remarkable visitor's center with extremely knowledgeable staff. Was able to precisely identify where my Grt Grandfather's unit marker (35th Ill Infantry) was located and gave us some really valuable information. The movie about the battle in the center theater was excellent. Wish we had more time to investigate... More

We love history and this is such a wonderful chance to immerse yourself. The visitor center is excellent with knowledgeable park rangers, interesting and interactive exhibits and a wonderfully creative and informative movie. The audio driving tour is also exceptional and a fabulous opportunity to experience the expanse of the park in the comfort of your vehicle. Weather hasn't cooperated... More

This site was so large we couldn't even see it all! We spent mid morning through the afternoon at the visitor center and the surrounding fields and monuments, but there was so much to see! Our 12 year old daughter did the Jr. Ranger Booklet, and if you plan on your kids doing this, allow for plenty of time to... More

Started our tour at the Visitor's Center. It is worth the stop both for the information you can get there, but the movie that explains the battlefield and the action on the ground that we walked on. The exhibits were also very interesting - especially the gun collection - whether you like guns or not. The auto tour is easily... More

This was my first stop to a Civil War Battlefield, and it definitely won't be my last. We rolled in w/about 2.5 hours before sunset, and my family of 6 would have loved to keep exploring, if we had the time. It was amazing to walk the grounds and see where Union lines had broken, and how the Confederates took... More

We drove through on Christmas Day. We used the audio tour and drove to points of interest. Normally we love to hike and this hiking trail would have been a really cool one if we had more time. We got out and walked up horseshoe hill with our dogs. Very cool hour long detour from our road trip.

Spent the day on the self-guided smartphone tour yesterday. It was perfectly done. They also offer a 26 minute film outlining the battle and surrounding timeline. Actually brought tears. The Fuller Firearm Collection housed in the visitors center is better than that at the Springfield Armory. All in all, the experience rivals Gettysburg without the throngs of tourists.

Really beautiful park. What astounded me is the size. It's 5,000 acres which is enormous for a Civil War battlefield site. Apparently veterans of both sides set aside the area. What is really neat is looking out over some of the fields and walking in the forest you get a real sense of what the area was like during the... More

If you like history then you need to visit here. There are lots of monuments and markers of which army was where. The film at the visitor center is good. There are lots of trails. I would like to go back but bring my bike and ride around the battlefield.
