  • Overview

    One of the largest battles of the American Revolution took place in the fields and forests that now make up Monmouth Battlefield State Park.

    The park preserves a splendid rural 18th-century landscape of hilly farmland and hedgerows that encompasses miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, picnic areas, a restored Revolutionary War farmhouse and a visitors center.

    The Battle of Monmouth Reenactment is an annual event held each June at the park that routinely draws thousands of visitors.

    See pacing sentries, enlisted men cleaning their weapons or idle away their time gambling and watch the women of the army cook, mend, and wash. You may encounter a drum major drilling his musicians or the court martial of a rebel.

    At the parade ground, watch soldiers drill or artillerists fire their cannon. Keep an eye on your children or the recruiting sergeant may have them drilling with wooden muskets.

    Park facilities and activities include interpretive center, visitor center, picnic tables, playground, hunting (special deer hunt only, by permit). Winter sports include sledding, cross-country skiing. Trails are available for horseback riding and hiking.
