Pea Ridge National Military Park
Pea Ridge National Military Park The site of one of the largest Civil War battles west of the Mississippi River, Pea Ridge marks the successful culmination of the Union's effort to secure control of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers and protect the arsenal at St. Louis, which made easier the supply of General Grant's Vicksburg campaign. The park encompasses 4,300 acres and includes a seven-mile, self-guided tour with 10 stops featuring wayside exhibits, including Elkhorn Tavern. It also has a visitors center, museum and bookstore
A beautiful place of American history. They have a staff that enjoys sharing the history of the battlefield. They also have a small theatre area that will show programs of the history as well. They have a roughly 7mile loop going around the park. You can see the nature, cannons, the type of fortifications that were utilized with some guided tours with parks guide.
Beautiful park. Lots of places to walk and explore nature. Great for bikes on the ~7 mile tour road-- and I'm pretty sure there are plans to connect with the NWA Regional Greenway system! They will need more friends as NW AR continues to grow.

The rangers are so friendly and knowledgeable. The museum was well laid out and so interesting! I learned a lot. The drive around the park was fascinating. Take your time driving the perimeter of the park. Walk on the trails and enjoy the wildlife. This park is well worth our time.
Great hiking and biking trails. There's usually surprisingly few people, so it'll likely be quiet when you visit. Definitely recommend for a Sunday afternoon.

Very awesome historical site. You can tour the inside and watch a movie about Pea Ridge all for free. If you want to drive through it will cost you $15. per car but it is definitely worth it.
