  • Only a handful of bicyclists and other visitors on this lovely weekend during the pandemic. So much room (social distancing just happens) to take in the views and information supplied at the stops...  more »
  • This is probably not in an area that is on the average person's Civil War battlefield radar; however, it is a very interesting park with a well preserved experience. The museum in the visitor's area....  more »

  • My husband and I really enjoyed the time we had at PeaRidge. If you like history you will love the museum, and love the outdoors? This is a must see place. You can drive through the grounds or take a long walk on the trails. All along the trails are post telling you about the history of the land. You will love it.
  • On a recommendation from a friend, I visited the park and enjoyed it thoroughly. If you are a Civil War history buff or a person who is just interested in the topic, you will definitely enjoy your visit. I highly recommended the guided tour. We arrived by chance just minutes before it started. The park ranger who was our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the park and details of the battle. We followed him in our vehicle around the park’s loop and stopped at strategic points where he walked us through the battle with many details you will not likely get elsewhere. Very informative and it took around 2.5 hours. At the completion of our tour we ended up at the museum where they were firing a replica cannon with the gun team dressed in period correct uniforms. Thrilling!! Again, I highly recommended the guided tour of the park. It is well worth a few hours of your time to learn about our history.
