Enjoy 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.

The historic village was known as the Howell Works in the early 19th century. 

At that time it was a thriving industrial community which produced pig and cast iron. 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.

Established in 1953, the Pine Creek Railroad is an example of rail travel at the height of the steam era in the United States. The live-steam and diesel, narrow-gauge trains are operated by the NJ Museum of Transportation.
