Words can't convey how lovely this converted Mansion is. The food ranges from basic to eclectic. Hospitable and knowledgeable while every plate served and presented with an art flare and pride. Simply gorgeous and worth experiencing again and again.

Not a great visitor center but the rangers were very helpful. A ride or walk on the trail was beautiful & peaceful.

There is a modern reception building with exhibits and information about Jockey Hollow and its significance during our war for independence. There is also a small building with a garden with plants appropriate for that time.

A nice variety of events over the course of the year, especially the encampment event. A variety of walking trails and paved paths provide options for visitors of various abilities. Visitor center sells bottled water and snacks, incase you don't come fully prepared.

Yes, you can have dogs on a leash and there are receptacles available. The leash must not be in excess of 6' in length. It's a lovely area - have fun!
