Visited this spot for the first time in January. Discovered it through a a geocaching multi that took us through the park, visiting various spots, learning and collecting historical information. Pleasant place to walk, learn history, geocache, and even play Pokemon Go. Would return and would recommend.

Labor Day Weekend Event and Pokémon Go stops. Carnival food, Craft Fair, Square Dance Competition. This is a big event in Prairie Grove, so big that the kids are out of school the next day. The historical buildings have interpreters and re-enactors during this weekend event. Put it on your calendar.

Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park has several historic buildings, such a a church, a schoolhouse, and a cabin. A one mile trail is also located there, as well as a museum. The annual Clothesline Fair is held here every year on Labor Day weekend, and a battlefield reenactment is open to the public on odd numbered years in December.

Totally free and worth it - Civil War battlefield. Hadn't heard of this one before, passing thru we saw the signs and decided to check it out. We ended up spending a couple of unplanned hours here. Check out the museum first and watch the video about the battle. After that you can do a 1 mile walking tour, or... More
