Search Freehold New Jersey

Monmouth Battlefield State Park is located in Monmouth County, in central New Jersey on Route 33, between I-95 and Route 9. The state park preserves a splendid rural 18th-century landscape of fields, orchards, woods and wetlands encompassing miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, picnic areas, a restored Revolutionary War farmhouse and a Visitor Center.

One of the largest battles of the American Revolution took place on June 28, 1778 in the fields and forests that now make up this park. The Visitors Center stands on top of Combs Hill, which was once commanded by the Continental Army artillery. Inside is an interpretive display area and the park office. Artifacts recovered in battlefield archaeology are also on display.
