Eisenhower Home Tours and Ranger Programs will resume in April 2024 (full schedule below).

Eisenhower National Historic Site grounds are open daily, sunrise to sunset. Visitors may drive directly to Eisenhower NHS (use 250 Eisenhower Farm Rd for GPS) and follow signs for on-site parking. RVs, trailers, and buses are not allowed on-site without prior approval.

Groups of ten or more must book separate tours for the Eisenhower home. Group tours are subject to staff availability. Those interested in group tours can contact us through a reservation form here. Groups should contact the park at least two weeks in advance about house tour availability.

School groups, youth groups, and scout groups should contact us here about programs and tour availability.
