Rolling hills with fields and hedgerows paint a pastoral scene belying the desperate battles that took place here during the Revolutionary War. Primarily visited for its historical significance, this 3,000-plus-acre park in Stillwater, Saratoga County, hosts many species of birds and mammals. Designated an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society, the park provides breeding habitat for grassland birds. Victory Woods is a separate parcel about 8 miles north of the battlefield.
This National Park Service site has some accessible features, including a visitors center. A full list of DEC's accessible recreation destinations is available on the DEC website.
Battlefield - 3,000 acres; Victory Woods - 22 acres
