  • Weather your ATV' ing, hiking or mtn biking, it's a beautiful place to visit for the day. I ride about 40 miles on the ATV in 5 hours and my favorite time to ride is in October. The trails are well ma...  read more »

  • My husband and I had not tent-camped for decades but our gear was still in good condition and our ten-year old grandchild was eager to try camping. After reading other TripAdvisor reviews and consulti...  read more »
  • The Pittsfield State Forest has to have the worst camping sites I have ever seen! Just about every site is uneven, and not just a little. Even the sites in Bishop Field are very uneven. One site in the field is over a foot off from one end to the other. How do you set up a tent or camper on that? You would need 12 in blocks under the tires on one side. These sites are very very hard to get a pick up truck or even a big car into them as well. No way of turning around in most of them without a 5 point turn or backing out the same way you came in. When you do find a level one the driveway going to it is pitched towards the site so when it rains your area will be a river. And oh yeah, watch out for all the roots! Yeah they have built some new bathrooms to clean up in but that's about it. This place is VERY disappointing as far as camping goes. Very nice place to hike and bike and snowmobile though. I have given 2 stars just because of the updated bathrooms but as far as camping there, no way!
  • Great park and good all around camping. I give 4 stars because our cluster of camp sites could have been a little farther apart. But we were right on a brook which made for great sleeping. Take the last review with a grain of salt.
  • Great place for hikes and camping. Like to come all seasons, even the winter for a nice hike to the top. Place is kept clean and the facilities have been getting updated a lot recently. Worth a visit!
  • We were just passing through and needed a camping spot. We did not plan on a long visit, but should have. $16 for a tent camp site. Stayed at the top camp sites near the pond. We arrived just before sunset and got a chance to see a great view from the look out point. Flush toilets and showers at the bottom. Pit toilets up top. From the trail map we got upon entering the park, it does appear that all trails loop back to the roads. Would have liked to stay longer and hike the trails and see the waterfalls. There were not a lot of road signs for the State Park, but we found it, and it was great. Pet friendly. No alcohol.
  • I run the trails here all the time. What an experience. Just breath taking.
