Ocean Grove is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) located within Neptune Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States.

Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of The Great Auditorium, contemplate the long history of Allaire State Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Catharine Catholic Church, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Bay Head Beach.
