Massachusetts Parks Visitor Reviews
5/21/2018 5:49:49 PM Nickerson State Forest Park
State Forest Park - I understand that this is the only State Forest Park in Massachusetts, and earned its unusual designation as a result of the contract between the original seller, who wanted it to be called that, and the state. So in our beautiful state, we have State forests, parks, reservations, and one forest park!

Amazing View! - The walk may have been a long time to go the whole trail but the views were worth it of the falls!

Wonderful place -

Great Bicycle trails, but signage poor - Great Bicycle trails, but signage is very poor. Maps I believe are only available at the forest headquarters and there are a number of public road entrances to the reservation. You possibly could get lost unless you have a good sense of direction. Do your homework before you go! - AND be sure to check the dates for hunting season. If I remember correctly hunting is not allowed on Sundays!

My parents honeymooned here in 1940 - My parents went to Balance Rock on their honeymoon in 1940. I will be happy to download their snapshots. Was it already part of a State Park in 1940? They stayed in a white, clapboard cottage called the Pontoosuc Lodge. Does that ring a bell? They visited a friend, Elmer Swack, at his farm in Pittsfield.

beautiful place - Catamount is beautiful. I grew up with Catamount as my back yard, and am sad to see (on a regular basis) 4-wheelers still ripping up the main trails.

Epitome of peace - Perfect wildlife viewing area for canoes / kayaks! Simple take out spot in the middle of the lower and upper meadow to stretch your legs. Beavers, herons, kingfishers etc. Please carry in and carry out and respect this pristine area :-}
