A trip to Coolidge State Park is a trip back in time; the park remains essentially the way it was when it was first created by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930’s.
Known for its rustic feel, hillside campsites that give way to dramatic mountain views and authentic character, Coolidge State Park is the developed recreation centerpiece of the 21,500 acre Calvin Coolidge State Forest, the largest state-owned land holding in central Vermont.
Many campers feel that sites at Coolidge have the best views in all of Vermont, which have sweeping views of the Black River valley and the Green Mountains. The park is particularly popular during the stunning fall foliage season. There are extensive hiking trails in Coolidge State Forest and a large swimming beach at nearby Camp Plymouth State Park.
The log lean-tos, picnic shelters and stone fireplace were all built by the CCC in the 1930’s adding to the park’s rustic charm. Reservations can be made up to eleven months in advance by calling the central reservations call center at 1-888-409-7579 Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
