Allaire State Park is a park located in Howell and Wall Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States, near the Borough of Farmingdale, operated and maintained by the New Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry is part of the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail Route. The park is known for its restored 19th-century ironworks, Allaire Village, on the park premises. It is named after James P. Allaire, founder of the Howell Works at the same site.
The park also hosts the Pine Creek Railroad, a tourist railroad. Take a class here at Allaire Village in Monmouth County with Extra Eyes Photo Tours – Beginner level I and II. This hot spot has some trains, some 1800’s barns, and buildings for you to explore and photograph. Some buildings have signs requesting that you don’t take pictures inside the premises.
Some events go on here other than those days; it’s a pretty quiet park. The train station is an excellent spot for some dynamic images. There are people dressed in 1800’s attire walking around the grounds. It has trains and maybe seven or so buildings. You might even catch a wedding at the old church if your timing is right. Don’t mistake the location for the campground down the street.
Parking Fee: $5.00 a day charged seasonally
