Very nice location for such a tragedy in history. Cost $15 per car load to take the tour. 1 person or 10 in car the price is the same. Watched the 30 min. video and then took the driving tour. Had a wonderful time.
Civil war battleground which is very significant AND great historical references to the Native American history. Trail of Tears and Civil War battle fields intersect here. Free park. Deer and hawks flying around. Only thing is the narrow roads are one way. Awesome park ranger staff.
I was in the area over the weekend and visited Pea Ridge National Military Park. There is a lot of history and some very nice views.

We went to this park not knowing what to expect, but this was an awesome park. My husband and I enjoyed the serenity and peacefulness of this park. So much history at each stop. We will most definitely be returning in the spring when everything is green. Well worth the money in our opinion.

The troop movements are very well shown with two 3D layouts which show the sequence of movements of the troops from both armies. There is also a very good 30 minute film. The park is spacious and has very pleasant scenery and... 更多
The visitors' center is well-staffed, well-organized and informative. The drive around the battlefield is interesting and educational. Beautiful scenery, as well.
The battle that saved Missouri for the Union. The Park Service did a nice job depicting the details of the battle via the electric map. Without it, it would have been more difficult for the average person to understand the importance and strategies employed by the generals. The movie also did a good job explaining all the details. There is... 更多
