Allaire State Park is probably best known for its historic 19th-century ironmaking 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.

The buildings which remain today include a general store, blacksmith shop, carpenter's shop, manager's house, foreman's house and a church. One of the workers' row house buildings is now the Visitor Center and Museum.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 11 My favorite campground
We go back at least 4 times in the summer, very clean, family friendly campground and very close drive to the beach boardwalk and store. I will not go any other place it is my home away from home and I live 3 hrs away Highly recommended.
July 13 Perfect park for beach & more! by Maris
We love this park! The location is great and the grounds and facilities are super clean. We have taken 2 long weekend trips in 1 month time and will definitely be repeating our stay for many years to come!
May 13 Perfect vacation! by Laura Stratton- Pittsburgh PA
Last year when we found Allaire State Park online, we hit the jackpot! We got to combine our two favorite vacation activities--camping and the beach! It will definately become a family vacation tradition.
May 26 AMAZING by Emily
I love Allaire state park
October 2 Nature, History and the Jersey Shore ! by Patti & John Nielsen, NJ
We live ten minutes away and stay here often. Saves on gas, we enjoy our Motor Home, love the campfire, watching the deer, birds, chipmunks - Changing of the Seasons. The Bicycle Path goes all the way to the Beach and Shopping in Manasquan, few miles but worth the ride. The Allaire Village is Wonderful. Lights out @ 10 PM.
September 9 Our favorite summer camp park. by Ahmerikali
