This is the place to be to recharge. Basic camping amongst the trees. Very relaxing and quiet. I've been going here since I was a child and it basically has not changed. It's nice to revisit memories. If you're looking for electric hookup, cell service...More

In the summer, my family and I like to camp in a tent. Winter camping didn't sound that appealing to me till I found that Mohawk Trail State Forest has cabins with wood stoves. We spent an amazing weekend there with our family of four,...More

I've camped here twice in the car free area and loved it. Aside from a steep downhill paved path to the campsites (and back up that hill to the bathroom), the area is perfect. Be prepared for lugging your things back UP the hill (they...More

One of the most beautiful Forest areas you will ever find. Mohawk Trail State Forest is stunning in every season but especially in the Fall. So close to many attractions and great food and shopping.. This is mountain paradise!

A trip through the complete Mohawk trail during fall pick time is so beautiful, you may want to take photos every other mile of your trip. Just traveling side with the river in a very woody,colorfull road,getting to the forest and trailing.....take your breath away..

Mohawk Trail State Forest and Mount Greylock (6 Replies)
This weekend, my boyfriend, dog and I will be camping at Mohawk Trail State Forest. We also want to go hiking at Mount Greylock for the day. I know it is about an hour away, but can anyone recommend a moderate hike – we definitely want a work out, but we don’t want to hike for more than 5 hours. And, is it easy to park at a trail head and such? Any information would be awesome! Lastly, does anyone have any suggestions on good places to stop and grab a sandwich or food for lunch? It doesn’t...More

Check out the area called the Hopper, there is 150 year old "Old Growth Forest" here. I was there 10 years ago and the trees were enormous. Not much like it in the NorthEast.
