Small state park was a pleasant surprise. Very educational and accommodating particularly in the hot weather. This park needs as many resources as can be provided to insure it remains a viable part of the state park system. Every effort should be made to encourage...More

Nice quiet place to reflect on US history. Open space and a few landmarks. But you should have in hand an information booklet or app to appreciate.

Driving some back roads into Princeton and saw some cool buildings and signs. Decided to stop and walk around. It is pretty cool. I wouldn't go out of my way for this place, but its a nice stop for less than an hour.

We visited during our recent trip to NJ. It is a thoughtful place. We miss the Princeton Oak that perished in a lightening storm some years ago. We like the colonnade. The field where the new Princeton Oak is planted was in the movie IQ.
