“Forever wild” perfectly describes Baxter State Park. Its remoteness, size, and grandeur are profound. Baxter’s intent was to keep the park undeveloped. Today, it’s managed as a wildlife preserve first and as a recreation resource second. At more than 200,000 acres, Baxter State Park is a huge place. There are actually 10 campgrounds within the park. Truth is, no matter where you end up in the park, you’re bound to have a remote wilderness experience. Eight of the campgrounds you can reach by driving; the other two are hike-in areas.
