Description

Latticed with historical idiosyncrasies, Hapgood Recreational Area was the first land acquired by the Green Mountain National Forest. Littered with the area’s fallen leaf litter, Hapgood Recreational Area is home to numerous FCFS (first-come, first-served) primitive campsites, all situated along the area’s natural hiking trails and well-manicured beaches. And, should you have any inquires upon arriving, there’s alway a Green Mountain National Forest host within earshot.

Multiple sites are first come, first serve (I believe the first few or so) but the sites after that are usually bookable. I was able to reserve site 11 on recreation.gov .. but I believe site 10 and under is first come, first serve. Definitely research or call ahead of time to ensure your spot!

Hapgood Pond is a great campground located just outside of Peru in the Southern Green Mountains. It is a great place to stop on your first night in Vermont if you are traveling from the South. It is peaceful and quiet. An easy, dog friendly hiking trail loops around the pond. One of my favorite places in all of Vermont: J.J. Hapgood General Store is located just minutes away. Great place to pick up some local food and goods. They offer delicious meals and have a great patio.
