  • I've been camping here twice and can't want to go back. We stayed at site 10 and site 5 up by Berry Pond. Both were nice and secluded and flat perfect for tent. Short drive down to beautiful hot showe...  more »

  • 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.
  • Large campsite with lots close by and a few ponds. Restrooms are clean and nice, there are also showers too. Signage is a bit limited but there are maps available (although some aren't accurate). Some camp sites are on a complete angle.
  • 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!
  • I run the trails here all the time. What an experience. Just breath taking.
  • 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!
