Looking for dog-friendly outing? We were, and Batsto Village and the Wharton State Forest access adjacent was just perfect. We took the pups on a 4 mile loop (trails well marked) through pine barrens and past the lake— beautiful. We then let them rest in...More

Wonderfully preserved village from the late 1700's. The house tour is a MUST! The staff is helpful and love to fill you in on life in the village. Make sure to cross the river to see the area where the workers lived.

This is a wonderfully preserved place to visit; a great museum. Nice grounds for children to have fun on; beautiful scenery and not too much to take in for an afternoon. Give a donation to enter. I highly recommend.

We decided to heat to Batsto Village on Columbus day. It was a fun day. One of the best parts is the 'free range' that the kids have to have fun while learning and enjoying the sights. There is so much space for them to...More
