  • The battlefield is well maintained, and has two amazing overlooks. One is the tower, which is amazing. The second is a short walk from the park office which overlooks the opposite side of the mountain. There's a lot of history packed in this little park. They have a nice little museum with items found on and near the park, a play area for kids, picnic areas, and plenty of trails. Great place to spend some time enjoying the scenery and learning about the rich history of WV.
  • I showed up with 4 teenagers and ran into Ranger Parker near the end of his work day. I thought it may be too late to check out the small building of artifacts on site but he not only unlocked it but curated our visit. I had been doing a poor job of adding some history of the area to our trip but Mr. Parker did a splendid job, it was an unexpected bonus for our day out. He also took us for a short hike to that was complimented with a visit to a small cave, an overlook above slots canyons, and an ecology lesson. What stated as a quick stop in for the fire tower turned into the highlight of our day. It is greatly appreciated.
