Although Fort Donelson does not charge any fees, the park, and you, benefit from fees collected around the country. Our new visitor center exhibits, finished in 2013, was funded by fees paid by visitors across the country. Thank You!


Although Fort Donelson National Battlefield does not charge any entrance or user fees, we would like to provide a tool to help you plan your visit to other National Parks and Federal areas.

When you visit www.recreation.gov, you can plan your visit, and, perhaps plan your budget along the way. You can make reservations and even purchase some of the Federal recreation passes here.
