This 2,928-acre park focuses on the history of the Monmouth Campaign of 1778. Complete with an annual reenactment of the battle of Monmouth—the biggest in the state—and a historic farmhouse, Monmouth Battlefield State Park welcomes community members and history buffs alike.

Take a driving or walking tour of the battlefield, hear a program about General Charles Lee or the role of black troops in the 18th-century battle. Hit the park for nature and history hikes, birding and lectures about the battle. Some events and activities are subject to fees.

Along with the natural landmark, peek into the Craig House, a farmhouse from the 1800s that was the home of John and Ann Craig during the Battle of Monmouth.

The Monmouth Battlefield State Park is open daily from 8 am-8 pm. The Visitor’s Center is open daily from 9 am-4 pm. For more information, visit their website or call 732-462-9616.
