It was an outstanding park. The visitor center was nice and small with great information. The driving tour was outstanding and covered all the major points and sites. Amazing staff and volunteers. Got to see a cannon display. It was a huge highlight and so well demonstrated and explained.
Nice drive, lots and lots monuments. Steamboat was a great addition. If you know about the battles of Vicksburg it is great. This is divide in two for the two sides of the battle.
We did the drive thru. Very interesting. We didn't get the CD or the tour guide and we should have. While they had a dial by number thing where you could dial a phone number select which marker you were at, it would have been cool to have the CD. So I recommend getting one or hiring one of the... 更多
This is a driving tour through the battlegrounds of the Civil War. It is a 15 stop tour road that took us 5 1/2 hours.

He learned so much and came home with goodies everyday. The rangers and visitors that helped make this camp a success... 更多
I had no idea just how big the Park is. It has a 16 mile loop to drive and get out along the way. It was very interesting. We enjoyed the ability to walk around or drive.
Since it is July, the weather is very hot and muggy. However, that being said, we decided ahead of time to have a guided tour in the car so the hot weather was not a factor. We arrived half hour early to watch the 20 minute overview of the battle/siege before the tour. Our tour guide helped explain all the... 更多
Given the current divisive political climate in our country, it was hard to miss the numerous calls for a united nation that we encountered while driving through this park. States with units in this decisive battle -- on both sides of the conflict -- have erected often stunning memorial monuments to those who served. The park is set up as... 更多
