    Don't Get Rattled

    Depending on how the park service has managed the grounds recently by the time of your visit, you might find full fields gently laid down after a recent mowing. In the summer, I need not tell you that this type of environment is perfect for area rattlesnakes. Keep your eyes and ears open, and if you happen to have a stick or broom in your trunk, or a stick on the field of some kind (removing this is actually illegal), you might "test" the ground ahead of you while treading over the fields.

    Get Here Early Enough

    In the late afternoon and early evening, park officials will tend to close down the entrance gate, assuming that latecomers will not complete their circuit early enough to risk their admission. If you are not here by 4:00 p.m., it is possible you will be turned away at the entrance. Be certain to get here early enough, and if you are taking Wilson's Creek in tandem with Pea Ridge, depending on which way you're coming it might be sensible to visit Pea Ridge first, since similar restrictions do not apply at Wilson's Creek.
