Coolidge State Park

855 Coolidge State Park Rd.

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 in the 1930s.  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.   Coolidge State Park is the only Vermont park with an entire loop of lean-to campsites, some of which have sweeping views of the Black River valley and the Green Mountains.  Many campers feel that sites at Coolidge have the best views in all of Vermont.  The park also has a loop of forested campsites, restroom facilities with showers, a hilltop picnic area with a log picnic shelter, a group camping area, and several remote lean-to campsites for those wishing to really escape it all.

For us camping doesn't get much better than sitting around a fire in a Saturday night, listening to nothing but the breeze blow through the tree canopy above. Sites are far apart and most of them big enough for our pop-up camper. Bathrooms are nice and clean. Showers are hot. Staff is very helpful and kind!

Great views, generally quiet. The only issue was that everyone passes the remote sites when they enter/leave - and the weekend that we stayed there was apparently a loud, speeding up the hill, Jeep weekend. Overall, great site.

I've been going to this park for almost 40 years. Been through 4 different managers, always a great crew. Dated a bit? Sure, but it has a lot of history to it. As an ex park ranger from ct. I think the state system is well run and has some of the best parks in New England . This park was always a jewel and now it has been discovered by everyone. Enjoy! I used to be able to book a site a couple of months out but not anymore, best to do it a year in advance for the prime sites.

We stayed in the tent loop. No views. They were constructing the loop so no peace available in the day - just construction traffic and trucks dumping gravel / spreading it out. Bathrooms were clean but older than the usual in Vermont parks, which I generally love. One shower for each gender for 26 sites. Toilet stalls sort of hard to get in and out of and the walls are short. Sort of 1960's style camp bathrooms. Its not a bad park, just not much doing here and hilly. I guess I've been spoiled by the really really nice other parks in Vermont.
