The centerpiece of this state forest, located in the rolling southern Berkshire Hills, is the 1,065-acre Otis Reservoir. The lake provides a wide variety of recreational activities. A public boat launch ramp is available, popular with fishermen seeking out trout and bass in the lake’s depths.
A unique and popular destination during the summer is the campground, located on a scenic and wooded peninsula. Also available is a day-use area with sandy beach and several multi-use trails. Hunting is open (in season) for all types of game including
turkey, bear and deer.
Camping season is from Mid-May through Mid-October. Campground office hours are 8:30am-10pm. Be bear aware: Don’t forget you are in Black Bear country. Never physically confront, feed, torment or throw anything at bears. Take appropriate precautions with food so as not to attract bears.
