Clarksburg State Park offers 368 acres of abundant and unspoiled northern hardwood forest with breathtaking views of the Hoosac Range, Mount Greylock and the Green Mountains.

Mauserts Pond has a landscaped day-use area featuring picnicking, and a pavilion area. The pond is surrounded by 9.5 miles of foot trails along which visitors may observe a variety of wildlife, and perhaps a moose. The 3 mile Pond Loop Trail is popular with birdwatchers, and the very easy Shoreline Trail has beautiful water views. 45 well-spaced and wooded campsites are located near the lake, featuring a modern comfort station with showers. NOTE: Customers looking to boat in Mauserts Pond should be aware the surface of the pond does show evidence of weeds. To ensure the safety of our visitors, swimming is not permitted.
