|COST TO VISIT:
The state of Massachusetts has several waterfalls deemed worthy enough to be conserved under the protection of the state park system, including Bash Bish Falls, located in the southwestern corner of the state, Campbell Falls, located near the CT-MA state line, and Wahconah Falls, the highlight of this chapter.
Wahconah Falls lies in the heart of the Berkshires, a central location to the waterfalls of Mt. Greylock State Reservation, as well as Tannery Falls, Glendale Falls and Lulu Cascade. Because of its central location to these other waterfalls, Wahconah?s picnic facilities provide for an ideal lunch rest stop before finishing out the rest of your day-trip. There are picnic tables, restroom facilities, and charcoal grills available for visitors. Also, as an added bonus, the small pools in the clean waters of Wahconah Falls Brook offer refreshing wading and even swimming. We expect this state park to be quite popular on sunny summer weekends, judging by the size of the parking lot.
