The grounds of the park are beautiful and well-maintained. I was there before the park desk was open for the season but the museum staff were very helpful. They gave me tips for where to park and provided me with a map of the park. I hiked Mount Tom with a walk around the Pogue, which was listed as moderate... More

The mansion and grounds of this incredible historical site offer a rather profound commentary on the vision of three men and the women who inspired them. Although the mansion was not open on the day of our visit, we were able to walk the grounds and take in the scope of this property that had been home to two very... More

We arrived too late for a tour so we just walked all around the grounds for free. We happened on staff a couple of times who were very friendly and welcoming. We read some about this place so had some context. Glad we happened upon this.

Should be seen by everyone touring the area. The movie (prior to the tour) is excellent as is the tour that is given by federal park rangers. The mansion is beautiful and give a great look into our history. Good for all ages. Highly recommended.

Great place for hiking, snowshoeing or X country skiing. Some trails were hard to follow in the snow, but others are groomed. South Peak is definitely worth the hike with an awesome view of the town of Woodstock. The only issue I found odd was there was no parking at the park, parking was across from billings farm and you... More

When we set out for a trip north my teenage son said nothing sounded interesting except the Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory. He along with the rest of us really enjoyed visiting this site and look forward to going back. It is a little difficult to find. There is a Billings Farm - Milk Farm - that sits across... More

The home of early conservationists, this farm has something of interest for everyone. Hiking trails, picnic areas, the historic house and many special activities are part of this experience.

A must see in Woodstock: the grounds are magnificent and the imposing mansion has a very interesting story. Don't miss the movie that provides an excellent introduction to the visit.

My family and I visited this park in early August as part of an 8 day vacation through every state in New England and as many National Park sites that we could fit in. I don't want to use the term "worst" or anything else to suggest that the experience was a bad one. It wasn't, we had an enjoyable... More
