Throwback Adventure – Hopkington State Park – Massachusetts

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

Hopkington State Park is a Park located in Hopkington, Massachusetts.  It is located on the Hopkington Reservoir, no longer a water source.  The Park encompasses 1500 acres of forest and is a popular area for boating, swimming, and hiking.  There is a fee to enter the Park in-season but Massachusetts State Park passes are also accepted.

Shadow, Buster, and I had numerous Adventures to Hopkington State Park, and on some visits My Mom joined us, while on one occasion my cousin and her pup joined us as well.  We have always gone in phases with local Parks, and for several years this was one of our favorites.  Although dogs were not allowed on the public beach (in-season), we always found side areas to swim.  Over time we found favorite spots away from the hustle and bustle of a popular beach location.  The Reservoir was beautiful, framed by colorful kayaks, and docks.  I loved the view of the circular island not too far out from shore.  We mostly visited Hopkington State Park to swim, but on one occasion I went kayaking, while several times enjoyed some of the trails.  We really have loved our Adventures to Hopkington State Park, and will definitely have to take Wilma to check out the scene.  I gathered some photos from various visits, and although I am sure I have more, I think it is a good representation of our time spent at Hopkington State Park.  We definitely will be back for a future Adventure  (Rating:  4).
