Volunteers have improved access tremendously. The battles are fought in a large field. Plenty of parking and vendors.

This is an amazing piece of Civil War history, a must see! It is very accessible for interstate 75. If you are passing thru from Mt. Vernon, KY toward London, KY, it's just minutes from the interstate.

Fantasic area, hiking is perfect. The canons and trenches are a very cool component at this battle ground.

I love history and the dedication to our fallen heros, although there was not alot to see. The road traveling to get there is very dangerous and if you meet a car even more because there are not guardrails. We did meet a local there...More

Most civil war battlefields have been altered drastically since the battle took place. This field is very much the same as it was when the battle took place. The trenches are visible and very well preserved. With that being said, it is not fully accessable...More
