Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is pleased to announce the waiver of entrance fees to Point Park, atop Lookout Mountain, from Saturday, February 15 through Monday, February 17, 2014. Experience the majestic views of Chattanooga's surrounding landscape from our nation's first national military park.
The three days that park entrance fees are waived provide a great opportunity for visitors to learn about the importance of Chattanooga as it related to one of our nation's presidents – Abraham Lincoln. In the fall of 1863 the nation's focus shifted to Chattanooga. Why was the city so important during the Civil War? We encourage you to find out by visiting YOUR national park.
