About Indian Hollow


With abundant wildlife, lush scenery and waterfront views, Indian Hollow Group Campground, located at the Knightville Dam and Reservoir, offers groups and clubs a recreational oasis.


The rivers and streams at Knightville offer excellent trout fishing, and the river is stocked with trout in both the spring and fall. The surrounding hills provide prime upland game habitat, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts stocks pheasants for the fall hunting season. Hunting and fishing are permitted in the area in accordance with posted restrictions and Massachusetts laws. Visitors can enjoy hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding along several miles of trails and old country roads. Interpretive programs on the cultural and natural resources, water resources, water safety and flood control are provided by Park Rangers.


Indian Hollow accommodates community groups such as schools, scouts and clubs. Flush toilets, showers and drinking water create a comfortable camping atmosphere.

Natural Features

In summertime the open areas of the river basin have spectacular blooms of wildflowers. These old fields attract many species of songbirds and butterflies. This area is within a Massachusetts Watchable Wildlife site, and visitors may catch a glimpse of deer, coyotes, beavers, grouse, turkeys or waterfowl while exploring the area. The area sits alongside the East Branch of the Westfield River, which is nationally recognized for its scenic qualities.

Nearby Attractions

The 2-mile long Claude M. Hill Horse Trail, which connects the campground to the Knightville Dam area, provides horseback riding and other non-motorized recreational opportunites. Chesterfield Gorge is a scenic natural feature along the Westfield River, approximately 4 miles upstream of the camping area. The East Branch Trail, a 6-mile hiking trail, follows the river from the Chesterfield Gorge to the Knightville Wildlife Magagement Area, and can be accessed from the campground.
