This is the unforgiving spot where George Washington's weary troops passed the brutal winter of 1777-78.

Valley Forge wasn't a battlefield, but the terrain shows why George Washington chose it for his winter camp. I walked the tour route (about five miles), but it's possible to drive/park and see the land, too. The Park Rangers were very helpful (as always), in...More

Our group of three friends visited Valley Forge and we were so lucky to be able to see it with Randy - an amazing guide from The Encampment Store at the Visitor’s Center. Randy made the Winter Encampment of 1777 - 78 come alive for...More

We are so glad that we took this little side trip. We were in Philly to "do" the historical district and decided to uber out to Valley Forge Park. We took the trolley tour and were very pleased with it. Our guide was excellent. This...More

First, the park is huge and beautiful. You can rent a bike to ride through the park but can also drive through it. There is good signage throughout so that you don’t miss a spot. We had limited time on our trip and were totally...More

This would be a 4 star review, but I feel the need to warn anyone who has issues with mobility. We are not handicapped, but are older and not as spry as we once were. Parking lots, even handicapped spots, are very far from the...More

I went last year with bikes that you can rent just after the main building. You need 2 days to really go through the whole park to appreciate everything. There is a church with stain-glassed windows that we missed because we had to rush back...More

I am grateful this piece of our national history has been preserved. This is a lovely park, wonderful driving, walking and riding trails. Take the time to walk through Washington's quarters.

Yes cause the last tour starts at 3pm and it’s a 45-minute tour. I recommend to book your tour online as it gets filled quickly.
