I've visited this park many times and each time I find more and more things of interest. The walking in the footsteps of leaders gone by is such a great thrill. Such and enjoyable place to visit year round.
Stopped at Valley Forge Encampment on way to visit family in Phoenixville. Log cabins were interesting to see and are well furnished in terms of period accuracy. Notice size of the majors cabins versus those of the enlisted soldiers. Signs inside and out tell the...More
I came here for the first time as a teenager years ago. When I started living here I come through the park at least once a month. I’m still in awe of the vast “bleak plateau” where our continental troops spent a grueling winter. It’s...More

If you are going to walk to most of the exhibits at valley forge, you need to schedule about 5 hours.
