  • Nice park that had camping areas with covered shelters and picnic tables. A couple shelters had wheel chair access so that was nice. There was a playground at the end. The river was pretty. Easy...

  • One of the absolutely BEST places I've been for New England waterfalls that are massive, ancient & powerful.. aside of this one random fall at Mt. Washington I came along while hiking with my sister. This one for ones out of state I've had the fortune to travel to so far, is truly one of the most photo opportunity accessible, and shallow low water pools at the bottom of the falls.. and a marvelous experience of the true power of these falls located from another entrance just a min walk up the road from the designated parking spots for civilian use. Some are marked for emergency vehicles. There are plenty I've been to just in the past year in Massachusetts alone that I highly recommend, such as... Twin Cascades in Florida, MA. - Pitcher Falls, Russell, MA. - Tannery Falls, Savoy, MA. and just 20 min drive nearby from Savoy is Wahconah Falls, Dalton, MA.
  • Fantastic Park. Well space and secluded RV sites, everything is wooded. Wonderful little bike/walking path along the river. Quiet with no road noise. Only downside is like a cell connectivity, but a quick bike ride into town and you were connected. We ended up sitting at the bench in front of the church to catch up on news and emails once a day.
