We found some nice items for souvenirs. Behind the store are clean bathrooms. Definitely worth a visit.

Worth the trip
Nov 2018 • Family
The store has a nice collection of items to purchase. There is a sitting area/snack area (vending machines) for those who can't do the walk around the park.
Good selection of books, shirts, cups, glasses and vintage toys.
Staff members are prepared to answer questions on the trails and landmarks.
This store is not in the King of Prussia mall, it is a gateway to the historical park.

Valley Forge Park Trolley Tour
Jun 2018 • Family
Be sure to take the Park Trolley Tour when you visit Valley Forge National Park. Our guide Mary Kay was the best! She made history come alive! Best 90 minutes Ive had on a tour. Mary Kay kept us engaged and could envision the encampment as a Revolutionary Soldier. Took us back in time, fascinating!

Take the TpValley Forge Park Trolley Tour!
Nov 2017 • Friends
A group of us took the Trolley tour of Valley Forge park this past Vesterans Day and it was one of the most fascinating 90 minutes we ever enjoyed! Bree, our guide, must have lived through the Revolution in another life: her knowledge of the people, places and events made this history come alive. Just driving around on your own will not do this site justice the way the tour did. Sign up at the Encampment Store, you’ll be glad you did!

Great Place for bicycle hire to see Valley Forge
Aug 2017 • Family
This is a great place to hire bicycles to tour Valley Forge. Bikes are in good condition and helmets are provided. You can hire for 2 hours or the whole day and enjoy the area. Trails are fairly well marked out and different levels of difficulty from fully paved to more gravel and hilly by the river.
Being on a bicycle means you can travel the park really easily and cover a lot of ground and see the area very well.

Gift selection is unique- not the same things you see in every other Nation Park gift shop. They also book tours of the park- exceptional in service and extremely informative. Highly recommend.

Gifts to remember Valley Forge
Jul 2017 • Couples
The Encampment Store is located within the Valley Forge Visitor Center. We had toured Valley Forge Park several times before but had never visited the store. This time we did and my wife bought a Valley Forge medallion for her walking stick. They have a nice selection of books related to the American Revolution and of course plenty of souvenirs.

The Encampment Store has a penny machine! This is an important fact to know. Aside from that, store has a great selection of souvenirs and a limited selection of snacks. Staff is nice and very helpful.

Exceptional Trolley Tour
Dec 2016 • Family
Six of us (of all ages) took the trolley tour and we all thought it was exceptional. The trolley drives you through the park, with two stops along the way. In summertime the sides of the trolley open up. The tour is narrated and includes two stops, the first to see how the soldiers lived, and the second at Washington's headquarters. The best part of the tour was the narration. The young man who narrated our tour was knowledgeable and did a fantastic job conveying history at large, and especially what it was like to live in the encampment. If you're visiting Valley Forge, do the tour! Highly recommended.
