This 1,000 acre park is open on a seasonal basis
from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Pearl Hill's campground
offers some of the largest and most private campsites in Massachusetts,
all beneath a canopy of stately pines. There are 51 campsites, now
served by a new bathhouse, and a day use area which includes a five-acre
pond created by the seasonal damming of Park Hill Brook, with a
beach area on the pond. The area offers miles of hiking trails,
abundant swimming opportunities and great antiquing.
There is a new trail connecting Damon Pond of Willard Brook
State Forest to Pearl Hill State Park. Its 4 miles long and one should plan up to 3 hours or more to hike the entire trail in good conditions.
