You are able to drive to different spots, that were the highlights of the Battle of Saratoga, as well as, American and British Redoubts. Panoramic views surround the battlefield. Three to four hours should be plenty of time to visit the site.

Fortunately for us, the driving tour road re-opened on November 9, two days prior to our visit after apparently being closed for some months due to a bad storm in May. It was a beautiful cold but sunny day today and we thoroughly enjoyed going...More

Might not be fair to call this quite the Gettysburg of the American Revolution (it lacks the forest of monuments Gettysburg has), but it's definitely very well-marked, beautifully maintained, and like taking a step back in time. I'm a Civil War buff, and I would...More

My wife and I did the audio tour about 10 days ago. It was excellent. I am a bit of a history buff and a big fan of Benedict Arnold. The tour was one of the high points of our trip.

Beauty, history and scenery. What more could you ask for? A visit to this site is one of the best ways to learn about the fight for our independence that you could possibly treat yourself and your children to. The interpretive center is well done,...More

Nice NHP. When we got there the entire driving tour road was closed, a bit of a let down. We began the walking tour but it was more of a hiking trail, not really a walking tour. There is some hill walking and a bit...More

I don't know. The only fee for this park was $5 per car and it was good for 5 days. There is a gift shop so you may be able to purchase passes there.
