Great visit to the Yorktown Battlefield site. The 1-hour ranger talk was terrific. Having toured Civil War battlefields, which are very spread out, it seemed odd not to do much walking on the tour, but the battlefield is really very compact. Without a guide, it's...More

We stopped at the Yorktown Battlefield today planning on spending a couple hours and then continuing on. Well, we spent more like 6 hours there and didn't move on. Kittyhawk will just have to wait for another trip. In typical National Park Service fashion the...More

Now-peaceful site will help you recall the American Revolution. Visitor Center could stand some updating but features the must-see tents that belonged to General Washington and "kid pleaser" era ship (indoors) to walk through. Small gift shop. Junior Ranger program definitely on-target for interested kids....More

The visitor's center is very informative and provides a trolley to get around the other attractions. Skip the cafe as the food is not great. Info provided is very interactive. We especially enjoyed the tent city and the musket presentation. There is no public transportation...More

We really enjoyed our time at Yorktown Battlefield. We learned things we did not know that occurred during the battle for Independence. I highly recommend visiting - some of the areas are being lost to erosion and might be lost to history. I wholeheartedly would...More

This was one of the best park experiences I have had. The guided 1 hour tour was amazing, informative and fun. The museum is well done and easy to follow. This is why we have a national park system. Never miss this place!

This fee park is extensive and excellent. Start with the excellent orientation film and then go through the small museum before heading out to follow the auto battle tour. When out in the car be sure to get out and explore the sites to truly...More

Went to get a lifetime senior citizen's pass & opted to go here instead of Williamsburg. Plenty of free parking, clean restrooms, very friendly & accommodating staff, especially the ladies in the gift shop. Children 15 & under are free. There's a short video &...More

I wouldn't recommend it. Because of the size of the roads and the twists and turns, it would be cumbersome. It would be much easier without pulling an RV.

My dad is over 60 and he was offered a lifetime pass for 10 dollars and is good for all national parks. We were there on a Wednesday and had the park to ourselves. They offer an audio tour so you can move at your own pace.
