The Battle of Saratoga was probably the most consequential battle of the American Revolution and perhaps one of the most consequential battles in history in that it was the turning point of the revolution. There are a number of books that document the battle and its build up and help the visitor to appreciate its significance. However, the Battlefiled, with... More

If you are a history buff, then this is a definite. For those of us who need to be reminded of the past with those that gave us what we have today, it is a reminder. Saratoga holds many surprises for those who travel to this great part of NY! During the summer there are performances by local artists that... More

Impressive National Park battlefield. The Battle of Saratoga was one of the most important battles of the Revolution. No matter how many accounts of the battle you might read, one can only understand it by seeing the topography of the field. You can accompany the driving tour with audio descriptions of each stop through your mobile phone. They are quite... More

This is a driving tour about nine miles long. You can stop and go at your own pace. There are a few places that you shouldn't skip and those are noted in the park brochure. Some of the views are beautiful. We were lucky and there were a couple of stops with people giving living history information. Lots of information... More

An "out-of-the-way historical site, but well worth seeing. I'd been there, as well as Fort Ticonderoga, as a child, so I enjoyed seeing it through my newly retired eyes! We basically had the place to ourselves. Great video to see and easy driving tour. Don't miss Benedict Arnold's boot... and why it's only his boot!

I hadn't realized anything about the battle that took place in Saratoga, 1777. I was recently on a fall leaf-peeping trip and my guests and I decided this would be a perfect venue for that as well as being immersed in history. This park is gorgeous with incredible vistas as well as fascinating and well laid out memorials, markers and... More

Went a beautiful fall day. Can't beat the scenery. I took my 15 year old daughter, and even she didn't get bored. We drove on the tour road. I would recommend that you scan the QR code in the visitor's center (or look up the app/website) to get the audio for each tour stop. Added a lot of information. I... More

Between the movie in the visitors center, the displays ther, and the trip through the battlefield, you surely will learn about the Battle of Saratoga which was one of the turningpoints of the Revalutionary War. If we had not won this one, we may be eating scones and drinking tea now.... The British were stopped in their march southward after... More

The Battles of Saratoga, New York were the "Turning Point" for the American colonies during the American Revolutionary War. The National Park Service has done a wonderful job interpreting the battles and the history of this special venue.

Drove east from downtown Saratoga Springs to the Battles of Saratoga National Historical Park. At the Visitor Center (open 9-5, seven days a week) there is a 20-minute black-and-white documentary film about this turning point in the American Revolution as well as a diorama of the area, a gift shop and washrooms. There are a lot of bus tours stopping... More
