Saratoga Spa State Park, Saratoga Springs

Listed as a National Historic Landmark, Saratoga Spa State Park is best known for its mineral springs but is also home to a variety of cultural, historical, and recreational activities. The area was deemed a State Reservation in 1909 after businesses were exploiting the springs and depleting them. After World War II, veterans and Holocaust survivors were brought to the springs to benefit from its medicinal effects. Now the park boasts two swimming pools and two golf courses--a championship 18-hole course and a 9-hole course. Visit the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, the Roosevelt Baths and Spa, or the other museums located in the park. Take a free guided "tasting" tour of the springs to sample the different types of mineral water. If you would like an appointment at the spa, be sure to make reservations ahead of time.

  • The Hall of Springs had a Delicious Easter Brunch Buffet. Huge selection. The food at each station was fresh. Beautiful location! Highly recommend.
  • Beautiful park with easy walking loops and fun place to see concerts or have picnics. Lovely Victorian Pool that has arches and an outdoor cafe and pristine pool. Good place to have a wedding or family reunion.
  • This is the best place to get natural spa. I loved it. They are old but very clean. Steam rooms are great, tubs are old but all it let you feel real natural spa. Staffs are genuinely very nice . They explain each and everything. Nice place to visit to have natural spa.
  • Interesting old spa buildings and a unique trail along a sulfur creek with springs. I recall a nice restaurant in premises. Also the Sunday farm market at Lincoln baths offers a variety of local goods.
  • This is a large beautiful park with beautiful architecture and great trails for walking. Most of the trails are paved making it easy for strollers or wheelchairs. Great location for getting portraits taken.
