C.M. Gardner State Park


C. M. Gardner State Park is located in the rolling Berkshire foothills along a scenic section of the Westfield River East Branch. In summer the sunlit mountain river here is a delightful spot to relax. A wooded picnic area is available on the banks of the river.

Also nearby are two impressive flood control dams managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Knightville Dam and Littleville Dam each over 160 feet high.

The land was given in 1959 for a state park in memory of Charles M. Gardner of Huntington, farmer, writer and National Grange leader from 1913-47.

Nice area to take the family and picnic, they do charge $5 dollars for mass resident and $10 for non residents

The Swimming here is great and they have little camp sites with grills that can be used. Parking isn't always available though. This changes year to year and depends on if they staff the park. I would NOT park along the side of the road here (outside the gate). Police are very quick to have you towed and it's also a pretty tight road with very little shoulder. Hopefully they open it up to the public in the future :)
