  • Rude staff, nice land. One star for help/printed materials re: the park trails. Four stars for the path (minus a star because the blazes were irregular, on fallen trees or too far apart). Signage is bad. I'm not a particularly good navigator but can get around if there are maps to be had. Looked at some of the posted maps and there was nothing to take with on my hike. Had to go to the "Trading Post" to ask. Person at the desk took one look at my leashed dog and said, "NO DOGS". I understand but when I asked for a map, he didn't even come around the desk to give it to me. Instead, he just stood there trying to hand it to me across the width of the store. So I had to ask if I could bring the dog in to receive the map. This caused a big sigh as he had to haul his hide around the desk to give the map to me. This behavior might have been forgivable if there was ANYONE else around but this guy was literally staring at nothing when I opened the door. Also might have been forgivable if he was afraid of dogs, which he clearly wasn't since he came around the desk instead of keeping it between himself and my tethered animal. The hike was good (blue trail) but I got twisted around a couple of times because the blazes were not visible. I found more than a couple on trees that were fallen and because there was irregular distance between blazes got "lost" a couple of times as I thought I was following a path that wasn't my path. The trail head wasn't particularly visible until I got down next to the dam. All in all, good hike, bad taste of the park generally.
  • The uphill fight for American independence turned in the Patriot's favor here proving freedom is worth fighting for. Walk in the very place where history was made. Beautiful trails and interpretation and monuments.
  • Great park with a lot of history, it's a revolutionary war park. The park has plenty of parking and things to do. That main battlefield trail is paved (but it's very steep at parts, so be prepared for a good hike) and if you don't do a ranger guided tour you can call a number and have an automated phone guided tour. There's a lot of activities at the park so check the official website to see what all's going on. They have a gift shop and film in the main building. This park is a must visit!
  • Nice large park with lots of trails. I took the 1.5 mile battlefield loop. Lots of information stops to help understand the battle. This trail is steep in places. The visitors center is nice with knowledgeable staff. The movie is well done and worth the time to view.
  • Enjoyed the activities commemorating the anniversary of the battle that changed the tide of the revolution. The walking path is very nice as you are walking through the very woods the patriots were fighting from. I think I like this site a little more than Ninety Six. I'll be making this an annual event. If you come, bring a rock to leave on Ferguson's grave.
