Mohawk Trail State Forest, MA

A clear, cold river cascades through historic Mohawk Trail State Forest along a rocky streambed. In this rustic and natural setting, visitors can get a sense of what it was like when Native Americans inhabited the area. In addition to its 47 campsites, the forest has 6 overnight log cabins. Mohawk Trail has over 18 miles of rivers and streams for excellent trout fishing, a swimming area, and a day use picnic area. Many of the original Indian trails, including the Mahican - Mohawk Trail, are open for hiking. This is one of the most scenic woodland areas of Massachusetts.

IMPORTANT: MA State Parks prohibits the transportation of firewood into or out of MA State Park Campground facilities. Arriving customers must get their firewood at the campground. Firewood is available for $5.00 per bundle. Pricing may vary at campgrounds with camp stores. Transportation of firewood into or out of MA State Park Campground facilities may result in eviction, or substantial fine, or both.
