The tram tour provided by the historical museum is excellent. They take you on a tour around the entire park and they talk about the major battles and historical... More

This battle, which lasted about two and a half hours, with more than 6000 troops engaged, was the third significant battle in less than six months, which sealed the fate of the British army under Lord Cornwallis. While technically a victory for the British because they retained command of the field, it was a pyric victory because Cornwallis lost more... More

Very good visitors center with short films to provide basic background on events leading up to and through the battle. The park was conducive to driving with many stops pertaining to the battle. A lot of people use the park for walking / running.

This is my go-to park to walk/run. Nice loop, beautiful surroundings. Also enjoyable to visit when they have reenactment weekends.

Visited here with friends we were visiting. It displays a great piece of history in the birth of our Nation. We saw a great, well displayed, collection of Revolutionary War artifacts and a very well done film about this very significant battle that led to our independence from Great Britain. We enjoyed this visit very much.

This place is really cool. There's a ton of trails, and they're loaded on most days. Kids can run around and have a ball. The history is the battles fought here are great to hear about.

I have not really been a student of the Revolutionary War, but found this park to be a jewel. The 30-minute movie was quite interesting, nice environment, walking trails were special.
