A wonderful side trip during a stay in Aiken. Both the dramatic historical context of Sherman's scorched-earth campaign, and well-maintained and posted battlefield truly engaged my interest in civil war history. Spent a full and fascinating hour with Ranger John White, who expanded on the...More

We did everything in about an hour. There is a section with a small cemetery for the Confederate dead of the battle and some small monuments and placards as well as a very small "museum" which is just a small building (one room) with some...More

Great hidden historic civil war park in a beautiful swampy area. The site is way off the beaten path, but worth it for history buffs. Beware of the mosquitoes though. It is an easy path that loops around. Would be good for kids and pets.

Excellent picnic areas, well maintained facilities and interesting displays should mean this park is busy, but it's location makes it tough for some folks. The staff was very friendly, even the groundskeeper had a wealth of information about the park.
