The forest around Jockey Hollow is great, and the history at the encampment is a hidden Gem. The trails are reasonable flat and well maintained, and work will for hiking with kids. I have hiked with Cub Scouts on 2 and 5 miles hikes, and...More

It is hard to imagine to see the living conditions the soldiers had to endure as the winter was just horrific! Brings everything to perspective when we complain! A must see!

I visited Jockey Hollow during encampment weekend and there were re-enactors and tents set up - incredibly interesting! You can tour the encampment area, go on some trails, and get a amazing information from the rangers who are so willing to help!

Just sat in the oyster bar with my wife and had a few drinks. Very cool vibe. Good quality. Would like to return for dinner outside.

This was the winter camp of George Washington's army during the brutal winters of 1779-80 and 1780-81. I used to live about a 20 minute drive away from here, and loved to visit it any chance I got. Some days I'd visit the visitor center...More

Yes, you can have dogs on a leash and there are receptacles available. The leash must not be in excess of 6' in length. It's a lovely area - have fun!
