We took our grandchildren for a ride on the train. Ride was short, but our grandchildren enjoyed it. Afterwards we explored the park and the grandkids made a purchase in the small gift shop.

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.

While my older children were biking with my husband, I thought my younger children would play in the playground. The playground was removed last year and has not yet been replaced! Very disappointing.

We love everything about Allaire: the walking paths, the historical village, the wide open spaces, the quaint chapel - all of it.

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.
