Groton State Forest’s 25,000 acres encompass mountains and lakes, forests and bogs. The area draws not only hikers but also boaters, fishermen, campers, cross-country skiers, and hunters. It owes much of its current appearance to the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Nearly seventy-five years ago, this group reforested areas burned by fires, built forest roads, and erected many of the lean-tos and other structures that still stand today.
