Nickerson Park Family Campground is nestled deep in the Natchaug River Valley, beneath the sights and sounds of civilization. Separated from the 12,000 acre Natchaug State Forest by the cool, clear, trout-stocked, Natchaug River, Nickerson Campground offers excellent trout fishing, swimming and relaxing family tube floats down the river. The Natchaug State Forest offers abundant wildlife with fine hiking, mountain biking and wonderful photo opportunities. river.gif (94428 bytes)Wildlife species include white-tailed deer, wild turkey, pheasant, squirrels, rabbits, mink, otter and more. Awaken to songbird melodies with the morning sun and when the campfire dies, and the conversation and coffee slows, enjoy star shows that rival those found in Montanas Big Sky Country.
Chris and Diane Nickerson and their sons John, Paul and Henry, welcome you to Nickerson Park Family Campground, where they continue the family tradition and share the wonderful world of camping with friends and family.
