Pisgah State Park is a 13,668-acre woodland that stretches across Chesterfield, Winchester and Hinsdale, with most of the acreage, 8,320, in Winchester. It opened to the public in 1972 and was established with funding from the state and the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund Act, which was established by Congress in 1964 "to safeguard our natural areas, water resources and cultural heritage, and to provide recreation opportunities to all Americans."
