Point Park on top of Lookout Mountain is the only Designated Fee Area located within Chickamauga and Chattanooga NMP. The fee is $7.00 per adult (age 16 or older). Children 15 years or younger are free.
However, the park offers a fee waiver for educational institutions participating in field trips or educational outings. School groups may recieve a fee waiver if you make reservations at least two weeks prior to your visit. A fee waiver application must be sumitted along with a letter of intent on institution letterhead requesting and explaining reasons for the educational visit that are relevant to the park's purpose. This letter serves as proof that the applicant either: qualifies for an educational or scientific tax exemption from a national, state, or local authority; is a bona fide academic institution offering transferable academic credit for the course; or is accredited or recognized as a legitimate educational institution. Furthermore, we require the letter of intent to determine eligibility based on the purpose and relevance of the visit: that the visit supports a specific curriculum for which the participants are earning academic credit, and the park or park resources are relevant to the curriculum for which academic credit is offered. Once we are able to verify eligibility, purpose, and relevance of the visit, your waiver will be approved.
