Visited this park in the Fall. Simply beautiful. There is an outstanding film and small museum as well. The trails are marked and easy to follow. The guide map available is helpful with narration while walking the paths. Worth your visit.

Decent sized state Civil War battle park. Visitor center is ok... the film is adequate and exhibits are informative. Some are pretty general. Park itself has several well-marked trails through the woods to locations where fighting happened. I took the Red Loop and it gave me a good look at both the Union and Confederate positions. Be advised- when they say trails can be strenuous and difficult, they mean it. The ground is uneven and hard to navigate at points. This does give a visitor a better appreciation for how hard it would have been to fight a battle in these surroundings. Lots of trench lines can easily be observed. Biggest complaint was signage. It would have been more informative to install signs at key stops in the trail loop rather than give visitors a booklet they have to read at each stop. Overall, worth a stop for anyone with an interest in the Civil War.

The grounds are beautiful but to understand what happened, you have to carry a trail guide. I would prefer to see monument type plaques in place instead of having to keep up with paper. I guess they do not want to disturb the land witg monuments, though.
Didn't see the film. Would haver liked to but there was no sign saying when out would start. Ranger really did not offer much info. when he took our money. If I lived close, would may come more often to hike. Don't really see a reason to teturn though.

If you like Civil War Reenactments, look for the dates of the reenactments. The park is lively and interesting with folks pretending they are living in 1860s.
