Named after General George Washington, this authentic New England town is located in the southeastern corner of Sullivan county. Its hilly and rocky landscape is home to 26 lakes and ponds and Pillsbury State Park. Pillsbury’s rustic campgrounds are the perfect opportunity to get away with friends and family. The park is also home to various wildlife, including moose and loons. Some activities and amenities available include a boat ramp, boat rentals, camping sites, canoeing/kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, picnic areas, and multi-use trails. The town was incorporated in 1776, and visitors can admire its historic buildings, such as Washington Congregational Church, Washington Old Schoolhouse/Police Station, and Washington Town Hall & Meetinghouse.
