Spectacular preservation of these battle fields! Much larger area than I thought it would be. We did auto tour and signs were very helpful getting us to the next stop. My jaw dropped multiple times visualizing what occurred here

I'm not sure how much the CDs are but you can download an app to your smartphone for $9.99. There's also a pretty detailed map you can follow which doesn't cost a thing.

I do not know how big the RV is, but some of the turns can be tight. Tour busses go through the park so it is feasible. Parking may be a problem in some spots due to limited number of spaces for large vehicles verses cars... More
