Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site is a historically important location in Jefferson County, New York, USA. The historic site is south of the Village of Sackets Harbor in the Town of Hounsfield. Two battles were fought near this location during the War of 1812.[2]

The site includes exhibits, a restored 1850's Navy Yard and Commandant's House, outdoor signs, and guided and self-guided tours. There are costumed interpretive guides in the summer months who re-enact a soldier's camp life in 1813.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
