Fort Oglethorpe, GA: On Saturday, April 21, to encourage all Americans to visit their national parks, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will waive the entrance fee to enter Point Park, atop Lookout Mountain.

This fee free day provides an opportunity for visitors to contemplate the reasons soldiers struggled along the mountain slopes during the 1863 “Battle Above the Clouds,” while also taking in the majestic views of Chattanooga and the surrounding area.

Ranger-guided walking tours of Point Park will be given at 11 am and 2 pm. These tours begin just inside the Point Park entrance gate and last approximately 30 -45 minutes.
For more information about upcoming programs at Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, please contact the Lookout Mountain Visitor Center at 423-821-7786, the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center at 706-866-9241, or visit the park’s website at
