Self Guided

All field trips to Pea Ridge NMP are currently self guided. We offer ranger programs at the Visitor Center as well as volunteer/ranger programs at the Elkhorn Tavern. The ranger programs are given on request, and the Elkhorn Tavern program is typically standard. A typical field trip consists of going through the museum either with a scavenger hunt provided by the park or on the students own, seeing a ranger program (on request) and then taking the self-guided 7-mile drive around the battlefield.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Visitor Center Interpretation staff.
