Oh, I hate to tell you, but it is a worthy stop. The site is a good two miles from the interstate, maybe a bit more. You drive into Hazel Green and then pick up the historic Wilderness Road and drive up to the site (alternatively I like to park near the village and walk the road to the battle site, about three miles one way - the road is also the Sheltowee Trace backpacking trail). The site has a gazebo with some well done interpretive panels and a very nice pit toilet. There are two trails, both interpreted, that really give one a feel for the terrain.

Link for the preservation group HERE.

Some pics from a few years ago. I also lead historical tours there as a standalone or part of what I call Zollie's Follies that covers Cumberland Gap, Barboursville, Camp Wild Cat, and Mill Springs.
