Overview

With abundant wildlife, lush scenery and coveted waterfront views, Indian Hollow group campsite, located at the Knightville Dam and Reservoir, offers groups and clubs a recreational oasis.

Natural Features:

In summertime and early autumn the open areas of the basin have spectacular blooms of wildflowers. These old fields attract many species of songbirds and butterflies. The Knightville reservoir area is a Massachusetts Watchable Wildlife site, and visitors may catch a glimpse of deer, coyotes, beavers, grouse, turkeys or waterfowl while exploring the area.

Recreation:

The rivers and streams at Knightville offer excellent trout fishing, and the river is stocked with trout in the spring. The surrounding hills provide prime upland game habitat, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts stocks pheasants in the fall. Hunting and fishing are permitted in the area in accordance with posted restrictions and Massachusetts laws.

Visitors can enjoy hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding along several miles of trails and old country roads.

Interpretive programs on the cultural and natural resources, water resources, water safety and flood control are provided by Park Rangers. Tours of Knightville Dam are also available.

Facilities:

Indian Hollow accommodates community groups such as schools, scouts and clubs. Flush toilets, showers and drinking water create a comfortable camping atmosphere.

Nearby Attractions:

The nearby Claude M. Hill Horse Trail provides horseback riding.

Each spring, water is released from Knightville Dam in coordination with nearby Littleville Lake to provide challenging flows for the annual Westfield River Wildwater Canoe Races.
