I was very disappointed when visiting here. Without any advanced warning the battlefield drive was closed. Visiting from far away with no advanced warning on the internet. You really could not see too much

I don't know. The only fee for this park was $5 per car and it was good for 5 days. There is a gift shop so you may be able to purchase passes there.
