Place of a Decisive American Revolutionary War Battle. Great Place To Walk

I've been there a number of times with friends or by myself. I and nearly 100 people walk the grounds on a daily basis. It is a perfect place to take a walk with family or friends... read more

I've been there a number of times with friends or by myself. I and nearly 100 people walk the grounds on a daily basis. It is a perfect place to take a walk with family or friends or by yourself. Lots of woodland and trails. When you drive through the main gate, it is only a short distance until you... More

Learning how Cowpens was instrumental to our current freedom was amazing! The museum does a wonderful job explaining our history and the role Cowpens played. The walk around the battlefield truly helps give perspective about the close quarters in which soldiers fought. I would highly recommend this park to people if all ages!

I've been anxious to visit Cowpens since the 7th grade, but unfortunately, it was never conveniently located in proximity to our many family vacations. While staying in Charleston, we took a day trip here and to King's Mountain. Cowpens is a great small park, you can easily spend an hour our so at the visitor center and exploring the grounds--a...

The trails are easy to walk and enjoyable with a lot of history to enjoy. There is a room inside the visitors center filled with a lot of war history. The battle field has reenactments at different times of the year which you can research on line.

The reenactment weekend in January was great! It is a free activity! Our GPS and the posted signs led us right to the park. See the film in the visitors center. You grasp that our use of mature military commanders was a winning idea against the youthful commander sent by the British. It has a flat paved trail you can... More

I did this park and Kings Mountain Park in the same day. This park was a little hard to find. The address on Trip Advisor left me about 5 miles short and the GPS got me within a mile (still short) but I was able to follow park signs from there. It's about a mile trail; half gravel, half paved.... More

We took a say trip from Augusta and are so glad we did!! Take the time to see the movie for an overview. Our guide was dressed in period clothing and was exceptional. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The walk was pleasant and, through his words, you could imagine the battle being fought. We also... More

Cowpens was a pivotal battle during the Revolutionary War. Walk the battlefield and see a film about the engagement at the Visitor's Center. Interesting and worthwhile.

We loved it and the history here. We walked the loop and it was well worth it. It's a flat walk and very enjoyable.
