Moosalamoo (pronounced moose-ah-la-moo) is derived from the Abenaki word “Mozalômo” meaning “moose call, song or sound”

National Recreation Area (NRA) Designation

The Moosalamoo Association worked with the U.S. Forest Service to achieve the National Recreation Area designation for the region. The goal was achieved in January 2007 with the signing of the New England Wilderness Act. As the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, this almost 16,000-acre treasure joins an elite group of 44 NRAs nationwide and is one of two in the state of Vermont. It is a unique designation that recognizes the quality of this area for recreating.
