Aroostook State Park Conditions & Activities

Park & Trail Conditions

March 30, 2018 | Due to the warming spring temperatures, and rain, we are done grooming for the season. The ski trails are skiable but conditions are deteriorating quickly. Snowshoe trails still have a good base but conditions are changing. Should have good snowshoeing for another week or so. The sliding hill is closed for the season as there is a lot of slush on the lake. It is the start of MUD SEASON, folks. The parking area is closed until it dries out. Please park outside the road barrier, to the left side of the road, then walk into the trails.
