We hope the information in these pages will give you a good start on how best to enjoy the unique and precious gift known as Baxter State Park.

The story of Percival Proctor Baxter’s creation of Baxter State Park is a fascinating story spanning more than three decades.

Our staff of Rangers and support personnel is committed to protecting and preserving the Park’s resources and providing a safe and enjoyable recreational experience for our visitors. We are proud of our friendly, knowledgeable staff, our clean facilities and our inspiring natural setting. If you have comments or suggestions, we’d love to hear them.

Hope to see you on the trail…
