Picnicking and Recreation in the Park
Those groups or individuals wishing to picnic must do so in designated areas. Please refrain from building fires or grilling in the park. Picnic areas are located in Chickamauga Battlefield and off Sanders Road on Lookout Mountain.
Recreational activities such as flying kites, playing baseball, football, soccer, etc., throwing Frisbees, Easter egg hunting, and all other approved activities are limited to the Recreation Field at Chickamauga Battlefield.
Chickamauga was one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. This National Military Park was created to preserve the history of this battle. Today the National Park Service manages this battlefield as a historic site. This is why recreational activities are often restricted. We encourage all our visitors to learn more about the compelling stories that occurred on these hallowed grounds. Thank you for your cooperation.
