The Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park was named on August 1890 and changed to the National Park Service on August 1933. This incredibly historic military park has portions of it in the state of Tennessee and in the state of Georgia, but the main Chickamauga Visitor Center is located off US Highway 27 in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia.
The other visitor center called the Lookout Mountain Battlefield Visitor Center is just off East Brow Road on top of Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is the first national military park that was established by Congress at the end of the turn of the 19th Century. The military park was created to commemorate a victory by the Confederate army as well as Union victories to counter the Confederate victory.
The Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is comprised of four main areas and some isolated reservations that can be found around Chattanooga. The four main important areas of the military park include the Lookout Mountain Battlefield and Point Park, the Chickamauga Battlefield, Moccasin Bend, and Missionary Ridge.
Besides the historical significance and the living history demonstrations at the military park, the park is also attractive to visitors for other reasons including hiking, horseback riding, and auto touring. The park's amenities include restrooms, a museum, picnic area, two visitor centers, and a self-guided tour. You can enjoy all these park resources with your pooch albeit with some restrictions.
In fact, you will not be able to access the parks building with your dog because no dogs or pets are allowed in any park building. That said, other areas of the park allow dogs. To be sure, you should find out from the visitor center which areas of the park you can visit with your dog. For areas where you can visit with your dog, you should still ensure that your dog is on a leash at all times. The leash should be a maximum of six feet in length.
