Wonderful place to enjoy a day trip. Lots of history and beautiful scenery. We decided to walk the length of the park since the weather was perfect but it is also an easy drive around the park if you have mobility issues. They also have a guided audio tour which would also be helpful if you have difficulty walking the length of the park. It gives information at each stop and is easy to use by just calling in from your phone. This was especially helpful for my parents who wanted to take a car ride down here after we went but have difficulty walking long distances. Included the picture of the armadillo since we lost count on how many we saw throughout the park. Ha Would recommend!
Wonderful place of great historical impotence. We enjoyed it very much. There is a nice picnic area. However, though there are signs that suggest no picnicking, there were several families picnic and playing games in non-picnic areas. I spoke with the employees at the visitor’s center and they indicated it was quite all right to picnic wherever you like. I personally think it disrespectful of a national historic site. Again, I spoke with the man and woman at the visitor center and it is allowed. So bring family, friends, toys and such and make a party of it. Great place to have a family gathering and party.
I had a quite enjoyable experience here. My only issue is the remodel of the visitor’s center was not complete and therefore was not was not that large. It was quite informative and gave a tremendous background of the battle. This was a pivotal moment in the United States history, it ended the Creek War and propelled Andrew Jackson to the White House. This is not a large park still take your time and really experience the park, I recommend walking the nature trail. If you are a bit pressed for time then do the drive trail, but get out at each stop or you only get really half the experience.
A nice park that is underwhelming compared to many other historic battlefields I have visited.Film at visitor center wasnt working.I prefer to walk battlefield rather then drive,but the trail here was lacking in signage.so For exercise take the trail.Otherwise just drive the car loop which would take about an hour.Also after signs all over saying to avoid ticks it would help to maintain the trail so you are not walking thru tall grass.
Beautiful and serene park that commemorates the battle of Horseshoe Bend. I went on a week day in the spring. Absolutely the most serene place on earth that day. Very nice place to go and just be in nature.
...Where Andy Jackson destroyed the Creek Indian Nation. He wanted to be President, just like Custer following him. But, losing the Republican election he started the "democratic Party".
Wonderful park, with a great staff. Reminds us of the horrible history of some times in our past, where Native Americans were slaughtered and betrayed by some peoples "heroes."
Small national park with a nice visit center. A loop road to drive to explore the battlefield. We finish in one hour. Could take more time if we walk more trails.
I am so glad this place exists, to call our attention to the Creek culture and the brutality of American expansion. Thank you.
Have so much fun learning about local history with Wedowee 4th graders. They loved reacting history and the hands on exhibits!
This is a very nice place to visit. There could be so much done with this park to bring it back to life.
Great place to take the family, go for a hike, and learn a little history.
