“Awful.”

October Mountain State Forest
Reviewed 27 September 2012

This is by far the worst place i have ever been in the US. The attractions look nothing like the pictures/pamphlets. The people are the rudest i have ever encountered. I almost was in fist fight on three seperate occasions. Awful local accomidations i.e. Hotels. And to top it off i saw two seperate groups of "kids" smoking pot in public. Never evet go here and if you do plan on punching someone in the face...trust me they'll make it easy for you.

One of the two best state parks I like in the area that has full facilities It's location may be a little tricky to get to. Off of Walker Street in Lenox toward the town of Lenoxdale.

Great place to visit to walk along miles and miles of pathes and roads that criss cross the mountain. Have been there many times. All kinds of wildlife there also.

Nice, clean, and well maintained state park, and dog friendly. Did a fall stroll, well enjoyed by all.

The forest itself is nice, with some decent trails, but hikers beware, this is ATVers world. If you don't want to deal with the roar of engines and choking fumes go elsewhere.

The campground just plain stinks. Lower level is supposedly for trailers but being without any hookups few trailers use it. It is open and the sites are right on top of each other. I was literally less than 10 feet from our neighbor's tent and could hear every snore, sneeze and cough as if it was in my tent. Heck I could probably hear the guy pick his nose we were so close.

Upper level is a little better with some space between the sites but again, the sites are open with no bushes or any privacy between them.

It's a quiet place on summer weekends until 11:15 when the Tanglewood crowd comes roaring in, then for about an hour you hear talking, doors slamming, the occasional accidental horn beep or car alarm going off, then as if a switch was turned off silence right about midnight. Well except for the incessant hum of the power station.
