We enjoyed the film at the Visitor’s Center. Since the battlegrounds were on our agenda, we watched the documentary “The Battle at Shiloh—the Devil’s Own Two Days”, the day before we visited. And we downloaded the Shiloh Battle app from the App Store for our...More

Immaculate grounds and excellent battle markers. The visitor center is the best place to start a tour. It is so expansive you will need a vehicle to locate all the military units.

We travel to a lot of National Parks and our first stop is always the visitors center to get an orientation to the park and to watch the park video. This one was fantastic. It really laid out the battle and how it progressed. It...More

Shiloh (April 1862) was one of the major battles of the Civil War, and is preserved and interpreted in a major park. It is still in a rural setting and essentially the entire battlefield is preserved, with an extensive museum and driving tour. Start with...More

We were there on a Sunday, and there were very few other visitors. The visitor center has a small exhibit of artifacts, not a whole lot, but also not too many to get bored looking at. We skipped the movie (although now I wish I...More

Start your tour (driving, walking, or biking) at the Visitor Center, and watch an excellent 45 minute movie of re-enactors conducting battles on actual sites like Fraley Field. The National Park Service provides a tour map, but if you're a Civil War buff, you'll want...More

Toured the park in a motorcycle. Paved roads with pulloffs. The movie is a must. See it prior to the 13 miles drive. Pick up a map or download the app. We used both. What a fierce battle. I learned a lot.

Plan to spend about 3-4 hours. Plan return trips to get the full impact of the park.

You probably could ride bikes in the park, I didn't see any signs prohibiting the riding of bikes. I did not see any bike only lanes on the roads. The route, I'll guess at 12 miles. For hotels, you will have to search the... More

There are three hotels within 9 miles or less of the park. Just Google motels close to Shiloh park Tn. It is not a problem to find lodging.
