Saratoga National Historical Park showing heritage elements and a monument
Wander along forest trails and see poignant monuments to 18th-century battles that ultimately led to American independence.

Saratoga National Historical Park is an area of woodland and nature paths with an intriguing past entwined with the 18th-century American Revolutionary War. It was in this spot after the Battles of Saratoga that some of the British forces surrendered in the autumn of 1777. This victory by the colonists is seen as a crucial point in the overall scheme of the war that ultimately led to American independence.

Come to the visitor centre to pick up a park map and brochure. Peruse the gift shop for interesting souvenirs relating to the battle. Watch a short film that puts the war into context and take a self-guided tour of the battlefield using the brochure and an audio guide.

Visit several historic structures on the grounds, such as the Schuyler House. A guided tour takes you through the fully renovated building, which dates back to 1777. Gaze up at the Saratoga Monument, a 155-foot (47-metre) obelisk celebrating the American victory. Climb its 188 steps for a picturesque view of the green countryside from the window at the top.

Take a leisurely stroll through the forest paths in the Victory Woods, 22 acres (9 hectares) of land. Sit on a bench and reflect on the fascinating ways history has shaped the present. This was the location of the final encampment site of the British Army. This setting, and many others in the United States, would look quite different if the British soldiers had been victorious more than 200 years ago.

The visitor centre opens daily year-round from morning until late afternoon and the grounds are open during sunlight hours. Pay a fee per vehicle that entitles you to 7 days in the park. Holders of the National Park System interagency pass have free entry.

Saratoga National Historical Park is in the town of Stillwater, 35 miles (55 kilometres) north of Albany. It is between Saratoga Lake and the Hudson River in eastern New York State. Fly to Albany or drive 190 miles (305 kilometres) north to the park from New York City.
