“where the world changed forever”
Begin your visit at the Visitor Center, where you can pick up a park map & brochure and pay your entrance fee. The Visitor Center also has restrooms, a book and gift shop, 20-minute orientation film, fiber-optic light map, timeline display, and artifact display. The restored country house of American General Philip Schuyler, second of four sites making up Saratoga National Historical Park, is located approximately 8 miles north of the Battlefield. Schuyler House is open for tours Fridays through Sundays, plus major holidays, during the summer season. Access to the house is by free guided tour. Saratoga Monument, third of four sites making up Saratoga National Historical Park, is located approximately 8 miles north of the Battlefield. This 155-foot obelisk commemorates the American victory in the Battles of Saratoga. It is open for visitation Fridays through Sundays, plus major holidays, during the summer season. Victory Woods. Opened in June 2010, this 22-acre parcel of land, located in the Village of Victory, NY (about 8 1/2 miles north of the Battlefield), marks the final encampment site for the British Army under General John Burgoyne prior to their October 17, 1777 surrender to American forces under General Horatio Gates. Two options are available for visiting Victory Woods. You can park at Saratoga Monument and follow the foot path through the cemetery to the Victory Woods trail head, or drive to the end of Monument Drive (just downhill / east of Saratoga Monument) and park in the cul-de-sac there. There is an accessible boardwalk and pathway that runs about 1/2 mile through Victory Woods, along with interpretive signs that help tell the story of the last stand for Burgoyne's surrounded army.
Decided to go for an educational trip? Then Saratuga National Historical Park is the option! Great location, great car park next to the site, affordable entrance fee, informative guides given when you enter....what else would you ask for.?
The exhibits are wonderful and the staff explains everything about anything! I must admit our guide was super friendly and kind (despite the fact my kids didn't stop asking questions)
In case you don't like walking you have the choice to take the audio car trip. Toilets are located at the Visitor Center.
