Gifford Woods State Park was established in 1931. In 1933 and 1934, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built the picnic area and ranger's quarters. In 1939, the CCC constructed a camping area. During 1959-60, a new camping area was built by the Forests and Parks Department.

The Appalachian Trail runs through the park, and joins the Long Trail about 1-1/2 miles from the camping area. Many "through hikers" pass through the park on their journey from Georgia to Maine or vice versa. The park is a very popular spot during the fall foliage season for its northern hardwood fall colors. There are spectacular views from Deer Leap Mountain and lovely waterfalls where Kent Brook enters Kent Pond and along Thundering Brook Trail.
