There also will be special presenters throughout each day leading up to the battle reenactments. The cost for Saturday and Sunday will be $5 for adults. Children ages 12 and under are free.

General Rules and Etiquette

Please be courteous to all visitors, artifacts, and wildlife by keeping noise levels appropriate. This historic site is owned by the State of Oklahoma and so tobacco use is prohibited.

Battlefield Grounds

Visitors should stay on the paths and respect all battlefield grounds and exhibit spaces; the landscaped outdoors are an equally valuable learning tool to all visitors.

Wear sturdy footwear and be prepared for obstacles including uneven terrain and gravel. Be alert for wet or soggy areas and take your time to avoid tripping; variable terrains make running unsafe.
