Pea Ridge National Military Park is a 4,300 acre Civil War Battlefield that preserves the site of the March 1862 battle that saved Missouri for the Union.The park also includes a two and one half mile segment of the Trail of Tears. The Elkhorn Tavern, site of bitter fighting on both days, is a NPS reconstruction on the site of the original. The park is one of the most well preserved battlefields in the United States.
The visitor center serves as point of entry into the park. A museum and 28 minute movie, "Thunder In the Ozarks" are designed to provide background and orientation to the story of the battle. It is recommended that the visitor see these exhibits before beginning the tour. The drive through the battlefield and its ten stops are designed to provide information relative to battle action and significant features in each area of the park. The hiking trail is a pleasurable day hike. This trail takes the hiker into the more natural areas of the park, and is not designed to give significance to the battle. The horse trail is a rugged ride into the back country. It too is designed for recreation and lacks historical markings. The park is an excellent place for viewing wildlife especially white tailed deer, wild turkey, and bobcat . The fauna of the spring and the hardwood colors of the fall are also a pleasurable sight. The park has a picnic area at the visitor center. All park facilities require an entrance fee. Recreational sports such as football, volleyball, roller blading, skateboarding, and kite flying are prohibited. Hunting and trapping are prohibited in the park. Metal detecting and searching for relics are strictly prohibited. The park features an eleven mile equestrian trail.
