Massachusetts: Beartown State Forest
Posted on Thursday, August 25 @ 06:47:49 CDT by iljiana

Beartown State Forest is two distinctly different places in summer and winter. During the warm months pristine 35-acre Benedict Pond attracts swimmers, boaters and fishermen. Extensive networks of trails offer visitors a chance to glimpse deer, bear, bobcat, fisher and other wild animals who make the forest their home. Brooks and beaver ponds are plentiful. The Appalachian Trail intersects the forest's trails near Benedict Pond and offers spectacular views.

The other half of the year the forest becomes a winter wonderland, where visitors on cross-country skis, snowshoes or snowmobiles can explore a snow-covered wilderness. The 1.5 mile loop trail around the pond is a must in any season and campers are welcome year-round.

Things to know before you go…
Beartown State Forest is open all year round for camping. The main camping season is from mid-May to mid-October. Between October and April campsites are available on a first-come/first-served basis. Contact the park before departure to check weather conditions.
