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.

We had a very wet day in the park but that did not deter us from going to each site. The visitors center was great. A short film on how this spot played a vital role in the Revolutionary War. It is a driving tour...More
