  • Allaire is one of the most beautiful and family friendly parks in New Jersey. They have dozens of black top and hard pack bicycle trails, a seasonally open historic village, a working train yard/museum and access to acres upon acres of New Jersey's natural beauty. Their bicycle trails run along pastoral farmland, through forests, goes over the parkway via a sky bridge and will even connect you to a bicycle route to the Atlantic ocean. It's the perfect place to spend a day outdoors.
  • We love coming here. The transportation historical museum is really a small gift shop but the train ride is such fun for our toddler and the tickets they print are sharp. The park is beautifully maintained and it's not uncommon to see a bridal party or family having their pictures taken. Lots of walking and although we haven't taken full advantage of the historical aspect yet, the few shops we've seen have been very interesting and informative. Bring lunch, you can picnic in the park. Great day trip for a family, especially with young kids.
  • Came here for camping in the cabins. Great cabins for a great price. Exactly what I was looking for. Nothing fancy, basic logged cabin, with beds and a decent sized to stay in. Great location too. Staff were super friendly. Definitely coming back here with my gang.
  • I love this park. I've been there many times, but they took down the playground. I hope it is replaced soon. There is still lots to do there that are worth the visit.
  • Gorgeous park with paved bike path. Also a historic village you can see. Bike path goes to beach and there are benches along the way. Also General Store on bike path.
