“Nice family outing”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Quiet walk in the woods with grandchildren. There was not much historical importance information gained by the children but we did enjoy walking the paths. Ranger was helpful and provided interesting information on the history. My great great uncle served with the Federals from Maryland/West Virginia area. It was interesting to talk to the Ranger about shared history. I would not return but good for 60 minute trip.

Reviewed 14 September 2013

Not much to see, manly a walk in the woods as it was during the Civil War. Small visitor center. Worth about 15/30 minutes

“Overpriced for what you see.”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

If you are looking for a nice walk in the woods, go to Kennestone and enjoy the hikes for free.

If you go here, it is priced a bit more then it is worth for hikers. Perhaps the battlefield visitors can appreciate and pay for this adventure, but we found it to be overpriced for what you get.

Why are you charged in the first place to visit a historic site?

“Great walking park & Ranger Jim knows his CW history”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Its only open Thur, Fri, Sat & Sun. The professional staff is just Ranger Jim & he can tell you anything about the Civil War in Ga. & beyond. His Great Grandfather (50 GA) fought against 2 of mine 51st NY & 9th NY @ Burnside Bridge. Jim knew the history without even thinking about it.
This park is just like it was back in the 1860's, so wear good walking shoes.

“It was never open and finally one sunday it was open.”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

It seems to be a secret, can't get in the place all the time. Seven visits and I finally found the gates open. Understood once i got in, there was very few people and seemed very dull.
