Planning Overview:
The Long-Range Management Plan for 27,165 acres that make up the Groton Management Unit was completed in 2008.  Those lands include numerous state parks, two state forests and two wildlife management areas. The Groton Management Unit encompasses thousands of acres of diverse glacier-carved, heavily forested landscapes and natural features in contrast with several apple orchards and old fields still maintained as permanent openings.  There are several outstanding lakes and ponds, and a handful of state-designated natural areas.  Recreational resources and facilities are numerous and widespread throughout the landscape.
