A small park with importbattle fought there. A fine 20 min intro movie and light show outlining battle. Then one can drive 10 mile driving route with app giving audio tour. Fine bit of history.

Saratoga was one of the early decisive battles of the Revolutionary War, the first time the British Army actually surrendered, causing the French to join the cause and ultimately turning the tide to American victory. You can drive through and see the battlefield and stop...More

This is an important and beautiful park with an enthusiastic staff. The feds need to spend some money on exhibit maintenance and new signage. How about daily costumed interpreters, cannon and musket firing, etc. ?? We are supposed to be a patriotic country, right? Let's...More

This is a Beautiful and well-maintained park. Unfortunately there is only ONE licensed battlefield guide who was not available on the day we visited. The rangers and volunteers have volumes of information but they are stationary so you have to do a self-guided auto tour....More

Living near Gettysburg, PA, most of my historic travels are civil war related. It was refreshing to get a glimpse of the Revolutionary War and how important this particular battle was. The film was interesting and the battlefield has plenty to learn about.

When I visited, there had been a storm a few days prior. Much to my dismay, the roads had been closed due to trees blocking the roads. I was, however, able to walk about 2/3 of the park. It just so happened that this battle...More

I don't know. The only fee for this park was $5 per car and it was good for 5 days. There is a gift shop so you may be able to purchase passes there.
