ALGONQUIN STATE FOREST
ALGONQUIN STATE FOREST
Algonquin State Forest began as 92 acres in 1937, and has grown to a size of 2,545 acres today. The forest consists of several parcels in the towns of Colebrook and Winchester. The largest piece of the forest is along Sandy Brook in Colebrook. Most of the early acquisitions of Algonquin State Forest were gifts to the State. The name 'Algonquin' is an Indian name.

The forest is managed for sawtimber, firewood, wildlife habitat, and recreational activities such as hiking, hunting, fishing, and bird watching.
Passes
Connecticut has made state parks, forests, trails, historic sites and beaches more accessible to our residents so they can enjoy the many attractions and beauty they offer. Under the Passport to the Parks program, parking fees are now eliminated at Connecticut State Parks for those with Connecticut registered vehicles.
