  • We really enjoyed visiting the Sullivans and hearing the history of the Military Park. The animated stories shared via the host of our Double-Decker bus group made the ship come alive.

  • A true experience of what war used to look like on the open ocean. The ships were beautifully maintained, unfortunately the Sullivan's were under maintenance on my visit. The tour took about 2 hours, lots to read and to take in. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Lots of free parking and just over the border from Canada, very easily accessed.
  • Great stop for those who wish to see a naval warship up close and personal. The facility has a small museum that has the history of the vessels on display as wall as US Navy maritime history. Plan on spending a full day at the park to explore all the ships thoroughly. The Sullivan's and Corker will not take to much time but the Little Rock is BIG. Depending on the age of the kids, the fun items were the bunks and the items they could touch. The history of the ships and the different information stations could be dull for them.
