I must have missed on their website that the venue's visitor centers are closed on Mondays and Tuesday and especially on President's Day weekend as they were closed when we went to visit both Morristown locations, Washington's Headquarters and Jockey Hollow. Still the guard/ranger working at the Headquarters did give us some of the brochures so that we could still... More

Being a native of Morris County NJ; I have always been aware of the importance our area played in the Revolution. I have visited Jockey Hollow on a few occasions. Camped with my Daughters when they were Girl Scouts. Have just wandered the trails and thought of the harsh winter weather those troops endured. Check out the Hollow and the... More

On New Year's Day, we decided to bundle up and walk for a few miles. We found the trails well marked and cleared. We were able to do the 3.2 mile loop, so we felt we had seen enough. Beautiful scenery mixed with some historical landmarks that were interesting. Good for all ages.

This national park provides wonderful opportunities for walking and hiking through the space that George Washington used two winters to billet his troops. Make sure that you visit the visitor center which has an excellent video that tells the story. There is also a living history farm where in period people will explain life in the 1700s.

Our Cub Scout den of 10 year olds hiked 5-miles on beautiful trails and had a great lecture from a Park Ranger about the history of the park. - Great trails - trails are NOT stroller friendly, but the roads, visitor center and farm house are. - Winter and snowy hikes here are when Washington's army were there - so...

The restaurant is pretty, unfortunately they placed a big cheese cart right by the window, which obstruct my view looking outside to the beautiful water fountain front. Food was ok, we had tasting menu, and we were given 2 separate lamb dishes . This is the first time I have tasting menu with the same kind of meat twice.

The park has an interesting history of being where troops assembled for Washington's army in revolutionary war. Squint your eyes to blind the view of modern uppie houses all around the park and you could imagine what it was like several hundred years ago. Went to the visitors center. A cold and disinterested ranger said they would be closing soon.... More

Great place to go hiking on the paved trail or trails in the woods. The cabins are really cool and my kids loved seeing them and learning about the soldiers who camped there. Surrounding towns are great places to go explore after this.
