I have been going to “Spaulding’s” for over 30 years now. Such a beautiful, peaceful place to walk or relax to get away from it all.

Well establisbed & kept trails. Facilities not so well kept. Beautiful natural treasure. Trails not well marked or explained. Read about this park in Country magazine, I believe. Hopefully Park can be more fully developed.

Moore State Park is a lovely spot for a walk in the woods. To walk your dog. There's some great photo opportunities, or great backgrounds for a selfie

I have lived in the area for 40 years and finally got a chance to go check this place out. I was stunned at how large and interesting this place was. They have great maps for walking trails right on site.

We came here for a couple of hours and were quite impressed. Easy short trails to hike with plenty of shade. Very well kept. Unfortunately the water level is very, very low so there wasn't any water flowing under the bridge. Nice picturesque park with...More

It's family friendly and photogenic. Definitely a must visit place. Although I have no idea why a tourist would visit the area but it's a classic New England experience if you find yourself barreling through central Massachusetts. There is also a creepy cabin nearby with...More
