We ride our bikes just about every day during the summer. Quaint little village is very nice to go through and they even have an old steam engine train that the kids can ride on and a big circle.

This state park has it all. Really nice grounds and surroundings. Village history with characters dressed up for their time explaining their jobs. Many hiking trails and even a train ride. Fun for couples or families with children too.

Allaire is a great place for activities. However I thought the camp ground was too crowded. The sites are to close to each other. On the plus side the camping area and bathrooms were very clean and well stocked.
