Townshend State Park
A visit to Townshend State Park, located at the foot of Bald Mountain on a bend of the West River, feels like a step back in time. The park was constructed during the Great Depression by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a public works program aimed at putting young men to work. There are campsite and hiking trails as well as a nice swimming hole on the West River. A wonderful place to take a day and explore the great outdoors.
