So, this was awesome. We drive past the Princeton Battlefield all the time and always said we wanted to stop and walk around. One day we finally got to and it is so much more than the two fields you see on either side of you. We walked back behind the Clark house and omg. Acres and acres of hiking... 更多
This past Sunday proved to be a beautiful fall day to us, so we decided to venture over to NJ to visit our nearest Trader Joe's that sells wine! I also suggested we google the area and find something else of interest to check out while we were over there...It is a little over an hour to get there...!?! We... 更多
No, there isn't much to see here. The city of Princeton should be ashamed as should the NJ State Parks of the conditions here. There is probably more money being spent on keeping the lawn mowed here then money being used where it should be. I was here at 6:30 on a Saturday evening, and while there was only one... 更多
A lovely spot yo have a pick nick but that's about it. A few boards saying what happened but the house was closed on the Friday in August we visited (and looked run down) and considering what happened here we were really disappointed that no one was around to deceive what happened. A massive contrast to Gettysburg which the visitor... 更多

Just past the... 更多
The Princeton Battlefield Park is laid out so you can vision the battle going on. By being there and seeing you get a better understanding and feeling what went on. The description of the battle, the participants and what happen have more meaning to you. General Mercer ,wounded under the Large oak tree and the General taken to the Clark... 更多
This is an unassuming location, interesting only to history buffs. It would be nice if they had more visual aids or hisotry boards to help. For esample, I would recommend a bronze "redcoat" statue placed at the engagement distance so you could imagine the musketry skills needed.
We needed to find a place for a picnic that was private and had a great view. This is such a peaceful place it is hard to think of as a battlefield.
There really needs to be better signage. It doesn't have to be National Park caliber, but an upgrade would be nice. Also, we arrived on a weekday before closing, and the historic house was closed and no ranger in sight.
