Visit if you are in the area

A very quiet and small Battleground. Well kept but very buggy . Visit the Barryville farmers market as part of your tour of this area. Well worth the short hike.

It's a lovely park, but it's just a park. We were hoping to get some history of the area, but there are literally just a few pieces of the tale hanging on the wall. The trails looked well appointed but if you are looking for more than just walking trails, that isn't here. The pictures below are literally all the... More

While the park is a great place to commune with nature and hike in the woods, I appreciate the interesting and educational history displays about the battle of Minisink. Places like this and the nearby Roebling bridge provide a depth and perspective to American history..

Took the battlefield walking trail. Very easy walk. Forest was pristine. No trash anywhere. Good for about an hour.

We were here on a Saturday afternoon in June while camping at Kittatinny down the road. We were the only people in the woods. It was beautiful and relaxing - also very interesting information about the Revolutionary War battle that took place in this area.

Small park with a few signs telling you about this minor battle between Torries, Indians and Americans. More of a hiking trail than anything else. The day we were there, we were the only one in park. Very secluded on a weekday.

Really neat little park. Such a nice peaceful setting. Kind of hard to believe what happened here in colonial times.

Love to come to this Park to relax unwind and go for a little walk. So hard to imagine that a bloody Revolutionary took place here. Being a history major I always daydream what went on here. So much history in our lovely state of New York. Come visit.

We tried to visit the Minisink Battlegroud Park during our stay in Lackawaxen but they were not open and we couldn't get in. We had a hard time finding any information because the sign on the entrance gate said they were open 8am to 8pm but the gate was locked and we couldnt get phone or internet service to follow...
