Great place for hiking, snowshoeing or X country skiing. Some trails were hard to follow in the snow, but others are groomed. South Peak is definitely worth the hike with an awesome view of the town of Woodstock. The only issue I found odd was there was no parking at the park, parking was across from billings farm and you... More

When we set out for a trip north my teenage son said nothing sounded interesting except the Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory. He along with the rest of us really enjoyed visiting this site and look forward to going back. It is a little difficult to find. There is a Billings Farm - Milk Farm - that sits across... More

The home of early conservationists, this farm has something of interest for everyone. Hiking trails, picnic areas, the historic house and many special activities are part of this experience.

A must see in Woodstock: the grounds are magnificent and the imposing mansion has a very interesting story. Don't miss the movie that provides an excellent introduction to the visit.

My family and I visited this park in early August as part of an 8 day vacation through every state in New England and as many National Park sites that we could fit in. I don't want to use the term "worst" or anything else to suggest that the experience was a bad one. It wasn't, we had an enjoyable... More

Tickets must be purchased in advance (at least the day before) for the Marsh-Billngs-Rockefeller mansion- well worth the nominal price. We enjoyed an hour-long, ranger led tour through the mansion- very interesting and informative since all three families who occupied the mansion were interested in conservation. There are additional tours you can purchase tickets for- such as behind the scenes... More

We did things back to front. A walk up Mount Tom, round the lake and down the woodland carriage drive to the visitor centre - pondering as we went on the various sayings carved into wood on the way round (e.g. "the trees shall be my books"), which were explained in the visitor centre film - but it was better...

Smooth trails but elevation. Beautiful fall walk. We didn't have time to complete the tour but the walk was worth the trip.

We did not know about this place before our trip to Vermont, but we are glad to found it. The grounds of the Rockefeller house are beautiful all by themselves. A tour of the house was icing on the cake. Our tour guide was great at telling stories, and we were entertained while learning about the family and their time... More

Not to be missed. This beautiful home was a gift to the National Park Service by Laurence and Mary Rockefeller, and we took a 1 hour tour of the home by the park ranger. You can sign up at the park ranger office for this incredible tour of the inside of the home and learn the history of the home... More
