Pachaug State Forest

(1 of 451)


Located in Voluntown, CT

Pachaug State Forest was established with a 1,011 acre land purchase from the Briggs Manufacturing Co. in Voluntown in 1928. In 1933, the first year the Civilian Conservation Corps began, Camp Lonergan was established in the Forest. As funding became available, the forest quickly grew, totaling 12,000 acres by 1937. The actions of the Resettlement Administration, in 1937, acquired an additional 9,000 acres and leased the land to the state for forest production. Eventually, this land was deeded to the state.

At present, Pachaug covers 26,477 acres in six towns, and is the largest state forest in Connecticut. The word "Pachaug" is derived from the Native American term meaning bend or turn in the river.
