MASHAMOQUET BROOK STATE PARK
LOCATION - The park is 5 miles southwest of Putnam on U.S. 44.
FEATURES - The region was once inhabited by Mohegan Chief Uncas. Masmaquet is Indian for "stream of good fishing." The present park is a combination of three parks: Mashamoquet Brook, Wolf Den, and Saptree Run. A cider mill, grist mill, and wagon shop once operated at Marcy Hollow. However, the mill dam and pond were wiped out by a flood in 1938. The grist mill still stands, but isn't open to the public.
ACTIVITIES - Camp in Wolf Den Campground with 35 open sites or in Mashamoquet Brook with 20 wooded sites. Both campgrounds have dump stations. Go swimming in the bypass pool where water is removed from the brook and the overflow released here. Go fishing and hiking. Two places to visit include Table Rock and Indian Chair, both natural stone formations.
For additional hiking, go to Natchaug State Forest, located 4 miles south of Phoenixville on Connecticut 198. The forest is known for its horse trails, fishing, riverfront picnic sites, fishing in the Natchaug River, and both equestrian and backpack camping. During the winter, go cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
