If you are a history buff, this is the place to be. Make sure you begin in the visitor center, watch the short film and then take a look at the map in the display room that shows all of the battle details and troop movements on a 3D map! I dragged my mother through this park and visited all... More

Nice visitor center, knowledgeable rangers. we viewed the 15 minute movie to get a refresher on the events of this battle and all that took place here. We got our $5 car pass and went through all of the sites. Each site you can dial a cell # and it will give you a narrative of what happened there. Well... More

This is a wonderful battlefield park that has been left pretty much unspoiled. Start your visit at the Visitor Center. If you have an ancestor that fought here on the American side the ranger will retrieve his name from a database and provide you with what information they have on him. They will also indicate on your park tour map... More

I recently made my third trip in less than a year to Saratoga National Historic Park. The grounds are beautiful and seeing them during the different seasons is just lovely. The park is open all year. In the winter you can go snowshoeing and in the spring, summer, and fall you can hike trails, ride your road bike, or go... More

The place is huge we were not aware their were 10 miles of driving through the national park. You pay $5.00 as an entrance fee, the ranger provides you with a map and information of all the different spots. We were only able view the 20 minute film they provide which by the way is very good, and walk the... More

I am a history buff and have visited many battlefields and military sites. By comparison, virtually every Civil War site is better done than this. The Rangers are knowledgeable and helpful and the Visitor Center is very well done. However, the park itself is not. Quite honestly, it needs maintenance. The signs need updating. They look like they were put... More

My husband and I recently visited during our vacation. He's a history buff, I'm not. But I must say that we both enjoyed this stop very much. The rangers on duty were very friendly and knowledgable. There is an introductory movie and various exhibits in the visitor center. There is also a fiber optic display with narration explaining in detail... More

My family has been visiting the Saratoga National Battlefield for decades. We go to walk, hike, ride bikes, picnic, and relax. The views are beautiful, the battlefield is well maintained, the park rangers are friendly, and the park is so relaxing. It's a perfect spot to enjoy a beautiful day, year round.

Located outside of Saratoga Springs. It's a little bit of a drive, through scenic countryside. Unfortunately the day we went, we did not realize how big this battlefield is and did not leave ourselves near enough time to see all we wanted. There is a roadway through the battlefield for a self tour in your car. We paid for the... More

What a great way to learn about such an important event in our nation's history. The visitors center had a short documentary that we saw before heading out to the battlefields. We loved the audio tour that was available through the phone...we just punched in the number of the stop and listened to an explanation of the site. The views... More
