Clean and beautiful

We went to Washington Monument State Park for a scouting trip and stayed in the youth group camping area. This place is immaculately kept. The entire experience was wonderful and it is a place I would love to take the rest of my family. It's a hidden little gem.
A Hike and a Sight
Apr 11, 2015 by: Christopher W from Pittsgrove, New Jersey
Great Trail - Good parking - Awesome sights - we spent 3 hours they have a little park in case the kids have any energy left ( mine did ) We got there at 8 am on the button just us and the eagles. In a word - Serenity P.S. Saw some hikers walking the Appalachian Trail we spoke to them for a while and my middle daughter ( 7 ) was in awe of them she turned to me while we were talking and exclaimed that she wanted to walk the application trail ... The hikers in turn responded they were walking that trail next month.
History and family history

Nice place. Also laid back, you can take your time. I am taking my son next time so he can see it.My husband's family is from Zittletown and Middletown. It was nice seeing how things have and have not changed.
Nice Hike, Great Views, Interesting Monument
Dec 03, 2014 by: BlueBlueSea from Maryland
As one of the nation's first monuments to our first president, the Washington Monument atop South Mountain is not as majestic as the iconic one in DC. That said, the monument is definitely worth the trip to see it. The hike is uphill, but relatively gentle enough for most. Once at the top, don't miss the chance to go to the top of the monument itself and take in the views, where on clear days, you can see into neighboring states.
A must for Civil War buff's

This park contains a museum about the Civil War battles that happened in the park. It's worth going just for that (although the museum on Gathland State Park should be in your list after this one). It also has nice views and the Washington Monument. This place is worth stopping for just for a bathroom break if needed. Note that this place has seasonal hours and is closed in the winter.
