If you have an emergency while touring the park, please call 911.  


Most of the cannons on the battlefield are historic.  Do NOT climb on the cannons!  They were weapons of war, used in brutal and terrifying battles during the Civil War.  As such, they were the cause of many deaths and injuries.  They are not playthings.  Please be respectful of the sacrifice made 150 plus years ago by millions of Americans.

Our battlefield consists of over 4,300 acres and we have abundant wildlife.  Please do not feed, harm or touch the wildlife.  Depending on the season, watch for snakes, ticks, chiggers and other pests.  

While driving the 7-mile tour road, follow all posted speed limit signs and watch for hikers and bicyclists.
