    Originally, I planned on staying only two hours, but my visit actually turned into 4 hours because the “small” battlefield was larger than I anticipated. The visitor center’s ranger was helpful in answering my question why the Union Gun Boats suffered so much damage in attacking the fort. Fort Donelson also had a phone number that you could call at each stop to hear an explanation what you were seeing. Do make sure you stop at the hotel surrender house to see additional displays.

    Great little fort (earthworks really) that are decently preserved considering they are over 150 years old. Nice hiking area, free-flying bald eagles and an informative short driving tour that covers the area of the battle. A visit is quick, maybe two hours if you visit the museum and are interested in the site. Well preserved and friendly staff.

    Very good battle field. You must understand that this is NOT a classic fort, but an area. Nevertheless this is well worth seeing but u muststop at the visitors center and get the map, free, as it explains all of the numbered tour stops as u drive.
