I have been here several times as a child. Even have brought my own child here. I consider it a "must see" in Tennessee. It is full of history. I'm not exactly a Civil War buff. However, if you are you will certainly want to...More

Start your tour (driving, walking, or biking) at the Visitor Center, and watch an excellent 45 minute movie of re-enactors conducting battles on actual sites like Fraley Field. The National Park Service provides a tour map, but if you're a Civil War buff, you'll want...More

Toured the park in a motorcycle. Paved roads with pulloffs. The movie is a must. See it prior to the 13 miles drive. Pick up a map or download the app. We used both. What a fierce battle. I learned a lot.

You must be a Civil War buff to truly appreciate this park. It is extensive, informative, well organized, and staffed with knowledgeable and helpful personnel. The Visitors Center is where you must stop first, then visit the Bookstore next door. The park has an online...More

We did the driving tour today of the battleground and used the audio cd available at the bookstore. A great $13 investment. Made the story come alive by doing the stops in a chronological manner. The map you get at the visitor’s center helps but...More

It was an alright visitor center but it smelled musty. Battlefield drive was well done. Nice grass trimming around monuments. Junior Ranger booklet was well done, involved the kids, activity and drive into it all. Junior Ranger scavenger hunt was cool.

We learned many things, we enjoyed the nature, and we had fun. Is definitely a place I will come back to have a run of a bike ride with friends. Too bad we didn't see a red cardinal (this time)

My only complaint is the poor signage on the roads for the self drive tour. The map at times didn't seem to be coordinated very well with the roads. I found it difficult to find the first mass Confederate grave site. Luckily, I had a...More

Monuments erected in the late 19th Century by veterans of the battle dot the landscape for miles, each representing the spot where the memorialized regiment fought on June 6 and 7, 1862. The modern visitor can drive or walk the ground (the battle lines were...More

You probably could ride bikes in the park, I didn't see any signs prohibiting the riding of bikes. I did not see any bike only lanes on the roads. The route, I'll guess at 12 miles. For hotels, you will have to search the... More

There are three hotels within 9 miles or less of the park. Just Google motels close to Shiloh park Tn. It is not a problem to find lodging.

Shiloh is quite a distance from both of those cities, and I'm not aware of any tours that only go to Shiloh. There are special tours of Civil War battlefields located in Tennessee but they aren't restricted to just Shiloh... More
