Allaire State Park
Allaire State Park is probably best known for its historic 19th-century iron making town, Allaire Village, and its antique steam trains on the Pine Creek Railroad. The Manasquan River, which winds through the park, attracts canoeists and fishermen. The river’s floodplain provides habitat for over 200 species of wildflowers, trees and plants as well as habitat for birds and other wildlife. Hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders enjoy the many trails in the park.
A good place to walk around. There are several trails, including some that aren't commonly used so they're a bit quieter than the popular Allaire Village area. It's a good place for families to talk a look around and enjoy some local history, especially when the Village is open or events are going on.
Just lovely. We only explored a small portion of the park and can't wait to go back. The buildings are open and working, but not everyday. Definitely check their site for info. Lots of people walking their dogs. There was even a wedding dress rehearsal going on in the chapel there. Again, just lovely.
Allaire is a cobweb of mountain bike trails. Very flat and pedally. During the summer it gets very soft and Sandy causing lots of drag making you feel slower than you already are. There are a lot of hidden gems and trails and jumps. Gotta be adventurous and find them. Trails across the street and by the water supply company. Drains very well as well.
The best place to experience new things. Learn a craft, find a hobby or meet some very interesting and awesome people. A genuine good time in a beautiful place.
Allaire camping is always a good time. Not primitive, but rustic. For rv's there is a dump station, but no water and electric hook- ups. Allaire Village is just down the street. Life in 1860! Great gift shop. Unique gifts. Don't forget to check the Pine Creek train schedule and get a ride. Santa stops by on weekends during December.
