Baxter State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"“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."
