Nice Visitor's Center which features George Washington's tent! We took the auto tour and enjoyed it very much! The best part was visiting Surrender Field at the end of the tour. Very surreal experience.

It was interesting driving thru the battlefield and walking thru the museum. My husband enjoyed it. They need a different way of paying. I think anybody can drive thru without paying.

My dad is over 60 and he was offered a lifetime pass for 10 dollars and is good for all national parks. We were there on a Wednesday and had the park to ourselves. They offer an audio tour so you can move at your own pace.
