Malabar Farm was the home of Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Louis Bromfield and has been restored to it’s active status of 80 years ago. This working farm still has chickens, goats and beef cattle while the fields are still planted in corn, wheat, oats and hay (a horsey paradise) The rolling countryside and fertile farmlands recreate the pleasure of farm life while the wooded ridge tops support and abundance of wild life, flora and fauna. The trails through these areas are all on natural surfaces with gently sloping hills and shallow water crossings. The campground trailhead has tie rails, stock water and restrooms. The day-use trailhead is paved but has no amenities. Because of the popularity of this park, check on park websites to see if you need a reservation for camping, particularly on weekends and holidays.
