This is a little gem. Very beautiful. I felt very humbled after hiking the grounds and reading the history of this battlefield. Very nice little quaint visitor center. Really enjoyed it. Beautiful monument.

One of the best kept Civil War secrets. Park is always clean, well maintained. The re-enactment in Feb is definitely worth visiting. Great place for scouting merit badges, home schooling etc. Will be back again and again.

Stopped at the Olustee Battlefield but there is nothing to see. A bunch of old signs that you can't even read as you walk along the trail.

We were just looking for a place to have a picnic and Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park was in the area. No entrance fee (donation box). Not a whole lot to see but in main building you will find the history. Nice short walk around...More

Thousands of people dress in period costume and camp in canvas tents for the reenactment weekend. I went to photograph the event. There was almost too much to see. People gathered around campfires. Gear was hung on posts. Dishes and food were organized on tables,...More
