Washington’s crossing of the Delaware river is a historical miracle set in our minds as children. Everything about the story captives a persons mind, no matter what their age, so seeing the spot of the crossing in person is just incredible. The re-enactments held really...More

If they combine the collection from the NJ side with this visitor center, it would be an excellent stop. The collection here is small, but the facilities are great. The bathrooms are immaculate.

The visit is great to see the crossing point, and get a better idea of the river. It is also great that they have replicas of the boats. However, the rest was disappointing, wish there was a better museum and more educational opportunities.

Had a lovely tour by a very knowledgeable guide in costume. The towpath was so pretty here! The soldiers gravesite was a very moving. I really enjoyed myself!

Several areas along several miles of road are worth visiting. Attractions are close to the river and a bit inland. Historic structures exist near the modern visitor’s center which serves as a small museum as well. Buildings, row boats, nice views of the river, and...More

We visited the Pennsylvania side only and as interesting as we found it the signage at the buildings has weathered and become illegible.

I do believe there are parts of the park that are handicap accessible. I would call the park directly-they do have a ranger station.

Absolutely - the outdoor portion is very much accessible, and there's a ramp for getting into the visitor's center. The visitor's center is very much accessible, wide open spaces in the interior. Enjoy!
