Online: Registrations can also be made through the state's online registration system:

In Person: Camping registration can be done at the main office/visitor center. That is about a mile up the road from the campground, just outside the Allaire Village/Pine Creek Railroad entrance. I would Call Ahead first to make sure Allaire is taking in person registration, as well as if they even have spaces open.

Exploring The Park


There are many trails right around the campground that are fun to explore. Though primaily flat, you can hit a mile or 2 or single track within a few feet of your campsite.

There is also a trail that will bring you across Atlantic Ave, and eventually to the village. Just remember that biking is not allowed on the trails surrounding the village.

The Village

The Historic Allaire Village and Pine Creek Railroad are both just a short drive down the road from the campground. here you will be able to take a ride on the trail, or step back in time.

Disc Golf

Also down the road from the campground if the 18-Hole Disc-Golf course. Bring your discs and head out for a fun round of DG.
