The set-up is weird, but don't let that deter you from visiting. The contact station has an excellent electric map explaining the action, similar to the old Gettysburg one, but better. Follow that with the ranger "in a box" park overview, the best presentation in...More

It doesn't look like much but it does give you all the pertinent information for the order of battle and what you should see and do. The rangers were helpful and hands off until they needed to be hands on.

Really good exhibits. Junior Ranger booklet was very extensive. Lots of things for the kids to do. If you have lots of time, you can drive to other locations other than the ranger contact stations.

Cedar creek and Belle grove is one of the more strange national parks sites I've visited. The actual visitor center is located in what looks like a strip mall in the rural town of Middletown Virginia, a few miles north of the actual battlefield sites....More
