We stopped by, even though we had no knowledge of this battlefield. We are glad we did! The information center volunteer was very helpful and the exhibits were excellent. They also have a driving tour of the battlefield. Now we know more.

This is very beautiful battlefield with a fairly new visitors center. The visitors center has a nice selection of gifts. You can get maps or a CD from the visitors center and take a self guided tour of the areas were the battle took place.

Absolutely NO need for a SUV. The Park HQ & Museum is asphalt. If you want to drive to a particular house the road is gravel and NO SUV is necessary.
