Site of the historic 1777 Battles of Saratoga, which represented the first significant victory for the rebels in the American Revolution. Today, the 3,200-acre park is a popular tourism and recreation site and a wildlife conservation area.
This park has been on my bucket list for awhile and we finally got here. We always stop at the visitor center for our passport stamp and pin purchase. The ranger there was helpful in helping us plan our visit and recommended the audio tour...More
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
