What to do in Black Turn Brook State Forest

The State Forest is Vermont's northern most forest located along SR 114 on the Canadian border. The Forest lies just northeast of Bill Sladyk Wildlife Management Area which offers wonderful hunting and coldwater fishing opportunities. Black Turn Brook State Forest does offer primitive camping and hiking and wonderful coldwater fishing along the Coaticook River where anglers catch a variety of trout.

Black Turn Brook State Forest is a wilderness forest comprised of nearly 600 acres used primarily for hunting and fishing. The Forest lies along the Canadian border nestled between Holland Pond, Norton Pond, Little Averill Pond and Great Averill Pond. Both warm water and cold-water species are caught in these four bodies of water.

This undeveloped state forest offers limited camping, hiking, hunting and fishing opportunities.
