Fort Donelson National Battlefield

Fort Donelson National Battlefield is a 600-acre Civil War era fort built on the banks of the Cumberland River near Dover, the county seat of Stewart County, northwestern Middle Tennessee. The battlefield includes the earthen fort, upper and lower batteries, approximately two miles of outer earthworks, Visitor Center, Surrender House, and the National Cemetery.

Fort Donelson lies within the Western Highland Rim Subsection, Highland Rim Section, of the Interior Low Plateaus Physiographic Province. Although small in area, the park is topographically diverse. Whether driving the park tour or hiking the trails the visitor will encounter terrain from narrow ridges, steep slopes and ravines often with only a gully floor, to bottomlands and floodplains. Several small streams, often intermittent or seasonally flowing meander through the park and are bridged for foot traffic.
