Robinson State Park serves as a major day use area for its region. Donated to the state in 1934, the facility includes over 800 acres with five miles of frontage on the Westfield River.

In addition to several good vantage points on the Westfield River near the bend at White Brook, the park offers tables and fireplaces at the Trestle and Provin Mountain picnic areas. The 17 acre island west of the falls at Mittineague is one of the park's most picturesque spots. The rough terrain of the park is unexpected in the fertile Connecticut River Valley. A small demonstration logging area, located on the site, adds to the diversity and importance of this urban park.
The park offers a variety of boating options for visitors. Canoeing and kayaking are popular activities, with the Westfield River providing an ideal location for both. The river is calm enough to accommodate beginners while also offering some challenges for more experienced paddlers. However, motorized boats aren't allowed in order to maintain peace and tranquility within the area.
Enjoy fishing in freshwater streams and ponds, with species like largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, trout and catfish available.

Robinson State Park offers picnic areas with tables and grills. It also has pavilions available for larger group picnics.
Within this natural reserve, there are 20 miles of trails suitable for biking. Be cautious as some paths can be challenging.

Mountain bikers should note that the terrain varies from flat to hilly with occasional rocky patches and roots.

Biking is allowed on all marked trails except those designated specifically for walking or hiking only.

Always wear a helmet when cycling in these areas due to potential hazards like low-hanging branches and uneven surfaces.

During wet conditions, avoid riding since it could damage the trail surface and increase erosion risk significantly.

Remember: sharing pathways respectfully ensures everyone's safety; yield right-of-way where necessary.

Check local regulations before your visit because certain routes may have restrictions during specific times of year.

March 23 Wonderful birding by friend of Robinson
park review stars; one to five Favored stopover for migrating Neotropical songbirds. Over 186 species of birds have been seen in the park over the last 50 years of record keeping. Gorgeous park.
May 30 Singletrack Heaven by Dirtman
park review stars; one to five What a place to mountain bike! Tight smooth singletrack, more switchbacks than you can count, and plenty of semi-technical stuff. As if riding in a mountain bike amusement park.
