To really enjoy it, you'll need at least half a day. You can ride thru it in a couple of hours but you'll miss a lot of history. I could probably stay ALL day there.

I agree with TexanTrail, you will just barely have time to scratch the surface in a couple of hours. We've been to the park several times, spending about a half day each time, and we have always discovered some new part of history that we didn't see before.

The wife and I went there on our honeymoon, mind you that was 25 yrs. ago, but when we went thru you could rent a cassette to listen to that narrated your trip. It would tell you how fast to ride and where to turn and stop to read things. That made it very good. I wonder if they still have something like that?

They do, it's CD's. All major National Park Battlefields will usually have them. -US Civil War Reenactor -19th Indiana

Agree with others. You can't really see much of Vicksburg in 2 hours - need at least half a day. One could use the whole day.
