When you’re hiking through the gentle trails of Coolidge State Park (so named for the nearby birthplace of Calvin Coolidge, 30th president of the United States), you’ll come across lots of old stone walls and what’s left of foundations. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine what this area was like when the homes of farmers stood here. The land upon which you’re hiking and camping looked a lot different just 100 years ago. What was once agricultural land has been thoroughly reclaimed by the forest’s persistent growth. The campground at Coolidge State Park is set within a dense, mixed forest of mostly deciduous trees. There’s a stately character to the forest, as most of the trees tower 75 to 100 feet overhead. Most of the trees are maple, birch, and pine. The tent sites are generally very spacious, with lots of space and trees between most of the sites, so the sense of seclusion is supreme. The campground is very quiet. The only sounds you’ll hear are the woodland birds and the breezes rustling through the trees.
