Open year round! I’ve camped here in the Spring, Fall, and WInter, and enjoyed it each time.
- As with all sites in the New Jersey State Parks – no alcohol is allowed. They do and will write tickets.
- Campsites, especially the group one, have a lot of highway noise at night.
- A hiking trail leads right out of the campground by the front entrance. The trail crosses the road and goes to Allaire Village.
Nearby trails and things to see:
In Allaire – over 20 miles of trails here to hike and bike (including the Floodplain Trail). Also, a historic village, a train with tracks, a small museum, and lots of events through the year.
We’ve also used this campground as a home base to travel to:
- Sandy Hook in Gateway National Recreation Area (25 minutes) – group camping only available here, and hard to get.
- Monmouth Battlefield State Park (20 minutes away)
