Sitting atop a hill alongside the Chemung River, Newtown Battlefield was the site of a clash between the Continental Army and a smaller force of British regulars, Loyalist rangers, and Iroquois warriors. The park has two small campgrounds, one near Sullivan’s monument, the granite obelisk commemorating the battle, and the other close to a replica Iroquois village. Both have restrooms with showers. Sites 17 and 18 have electric hookups; 7 and 18 are also handicapped accessible. The five cabins offer rustic lodging without heat, bedding, or cookware. Several trails meander across the park, leading to a few overlooks and picnicking areas. Two Rivers State Park in nearby Waverly also contains a number of unmarked hiking/ mountain biking trails.
