We stopped at Wilson's Creek on June 20, over Father's Day weekend. To celebrate Father's Day, the site was "fee free," so there was no charge to do the driving tour. The film in the visitor's center was very interesting and informative. We did the driving tour, and stopped at each location. We were also lucky enough to be there on a day when the Ray House was open for tours; our kids loved going inside and seeing how people lived "in the old days!" The volunteer guide at that stop was really informative and involved our kids in her discussion. Later in the day, a cannon firing demonstration was scheduled, but we were unable to stay that long. Overall, we really enjoyed the way the tour was set-up, the wealth of information available, and the extremely friendly parks volunteers and employees.

We toured this battlefield while in Springfield. My family had never visited a civil war battlefield. The first stop is the visitors center. The staff was very friendly. We saw a short film about the battle at the visitors center, and a display that showed the details about the battle. We bought a token to get through the gate for the driving tour that cost $10 for our car. We drove around the battlefield and stopped at each site for information and took short hikes to observe everything. It is very interesting to think of what took place here. This is a nice place to visit if you are interested in history, especially the civil war.
