Forest Echo Cabins

3 sites · Lodging360 acres · Mt. Holly, VT
Rustic and Comfortable Cabins. No power lines cross our property. We have no blaring screens to distract us from the sound of the wind in the leaves or to call us back to the whirl of modern life.

Nestled in the forest at meadow's edge, Cold Spring Cabin has an outdoor shower and indoor tub. Perched on a hill near the Farm Pond, Ripley Hill Cabin has an indoor shower and tub. The cabins are rustic, but clean and airy. The luxuries at Forest Echo Farm are not inside the cabins; they are found in the light that fills the forest in late afternoon, the silence of an evening canoe and the moonlit sparkle of dewdrops at midnight. Forest Echo Farm includes 360 acres, extensive shore to a 26-acre protected pond, numerous trails, and half a mountain. The Farm Pond offers a refreshing ‘dip’ to cool off. A hike from each cabin leads to Tiny Pond, an unspoiled lake where canoe, kayak and raft are available for shared use. Hiking trails are on the property. In addition to local trails, the Long Trail and Appalachian Trail are nearby. The surrounding area is chock full of restaurants, antique stores, country stores, bakeries, farm stands, farmers markets, general shopping, historic sites, hiking, swimming holes and scenic drives.

The best camping near Coolidge State Park guide

Overview

About

Looking to really escape? A trip to Coolidge State Park is like taking a ride in the DeLorean: known for its authentic, rustic vibes, it remains remarkably unchanged from when it was built in the 1930s. Many of the campsites provide dramatic, “pano”-worthy views of the Black River Valley and the Green Mountains.

Coolidge State Park is the developed recreation hub of the 21,500-acre Calvin Coolidge State Forest, the largest state-owned land holding in central Vermont. Coolidge State Park boasts an entire loop of remote, lean-to campsites, which are great for escaping that freak, summer hail storm you didn’t prepare for. There’s miles of hiking trails to explore, several trout-bearing streams and oodles of wildlife. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a black bear!

Notable campgrounds

  • Coolidge State Park Campground - A forested haven with sites for tents and RVs, surrounded by picturesque views.
  • Lean-to Sites - Rustic shelters providing a unique camping experience amid the park's natural splendor.
  • Cabins - Cozy accommodations that offer a touch of comfort in the great outdoors.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your spot, as campsites fill up quickly during peak seasons.
  • Consider mid-week stays for better availability and a quieter experience.
  • Check for cancellations regularly, as last-minute openings can occur.
  • Explore nearby camping options to increase your chances of finding a site.

When to go

The best time to visit Coolidge State Park is during the summer and fall months, when the weather is ideal for outdoor activities and the foliage is in full display. Winter brings a quiet beauty, but be prepared for cold temperatures and limited access.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's operating schedule for current hours and any seasonal closures.
  • Review safety guidelines, especially if you plan to hike or engage in water activities.
  • Accessibility varies across the park, so inquire ahead if you have specific needs.
  • Day use fees apply, and passes can be purchased for frequent visits.
  • Pets are welcome in designated day use areas, but be sure to follow park rules.
