**Interagency passes, such as the Senior Pass, are available for purchase onsite ONLY at the fee station at Lookout Mountain Battlefield (Point Park), Friday through Monday. On Tuesdays, passes are available intermittently, as this is the day that fee staff uses to handle their accounting and administrative duties. If you are planning to purchase one of these Interagency passes during your visit, please call the Lookout Mountain Battlefield (423-821-7786) ahead of time to ensure the fee station will be open. Daily entrance passes can be purchased at the fee both or at the automated fee machine in the gate at Point Park.

Before driving to Point Park to purchase a pass, be sure to see a complete listing of locations where passes can be purchased, as there may be an NPS, Forestry Service, Corps of Engineers, or other federal lands site close to where you live, or along your route to the park. You can also purchase an Interagency Pass online at the America The Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass website.
