Stony Point Park is located high on the Palisades along the Hudson River. It's a small Park with a lighthouse, picnic facilities, museum and at times, Revolutionary War encampment. The museum is small and takes less than an hour to explore. It has a combination...More

We've lived in the area for many years--- and finally toured it. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the Revolutionary War--and the general history of this area. Walking from the parking area to the museum is paved, it's a bit long and steep. They let...More
