Just 20 minutes from Woodstock, half an hour from Rutland, and a short drive north of Ludlow, Coolidge State Park is a prime destination for New England campers.
In the 1930s, as part of the New Deal, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built the park and the majority of the roads that connect the park to the rest of Vermont.
