  • I looked at the battle of Camden historic site differently presented. On August 16, 1780, American troops under General gates of the British troops under Lord Cornwallis were defeated here, but from the battlefield itself is not much to see, because everything has been reforested. For several small over the former battlefield trails. The story is explained on several charts and signs along the way. All in all very interesting, but I would me more or otherwise presented.

  • This site hosts an OK walking trail with some informational signs. But, only a true history buff could find any value in visiting this location. It has great potential, but just falls short.  more »
  • Complete waste of a long drive to nowhere. A rock is all that greats you to such an important part of history. Skip it and visit Kings Mountain instead  more »

  • The spot is really unassuming. In nice weather, it would be good for a picnic. There is a board with information of the Battle and a memorial marker. The board also contained a trail map if one wanted to walk the battleground. Points of interest were supposed to be marked along the trail, but we didn't walk it as everything looked overgrown. Unless you are really into history or like to take nature walks, I'd recommend just visiting the Park, which is more interesting and kid friendly.
  • I love visiting here to get a feel of our states history. The only complaint that I could offer is that the area should be better protected and not allow companies to clear the land of trees.
  • Great historical area with self guided walking trails. A huge moment in American history. Must see for any history buff
  • Great place to bring the kids and hike, plus they learn about the Battlefield and how it was the high water mark for the British before the war started to turn for the American troops.
  • Great place to take a quiet walk in the woods. Nicely maintained trails. Historical markers are interesting. Most of site is currently pine trees.
