Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park

506 East Douglas Street

Recognized nationally as one of America's most intact Civil War battlefields, Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park protects the battle site and interprets the Battle of Prairie Grove, where on December 7, 1862, the Confederate Army of the Trans-Mississippi clashed with the Union Army of the Frontier in a day of fierce fighting resulting in about 2,700 casualties. This marked the last major Civil War engagement in northwest Arkansas.

Here you can walk over hallowed ground where history happened. Walk along the ridge and in the valley where the heaviest fighting took place. Follow the one-mile Battlefield Trail or travel the park's five-mile Driving Tour. Tour the historic structures in the Ozark village.

Awesome park. Full of some great informational parts. Trails to walk. Playgrounds. Picnic areas. All around great. Only reason it got a 4 instead of a 5 was A:) The battle reenactment is ONLY in December. December 1st I believe. The website made out like it was all the time. And B:) Took my elderly mother there and she loved it, however a few more benches on the walking trail would have been nice. When you get old it's hard to walk a mile in those hills without sitting every now and again. But as I said over all, awesome.

I grew up going to this park. It is historic and fun for all ages. The mile loop is a good work out with great views. I suggest checking out the Clothesline Fair.

Must see. Take your time and visit it all. I think it so important. You really get the feel of how close and brutal this battle was. Very nice park

One of the best places to learn more about history. Up the hill they have a cannon and it's a sight to see. Plus many unique houses. And if you find the bathrooms... They are one of the cleanest I've ever seen.
