The vibe at Grout Pond Recreation Area
Drop some Grout Pond Recreation Area knowledge on us.
Relatively unknown gem in Southern Vermont. Hike-in or boat-in only camping along a beautiful little pond high in the Green Mountain NF. Rarely crowded and accessible year-round, there are a couple of lean-to shelters along Vermont's Catamount ski trail as well as remarkable fishing in Somerset Reservoir and the Upper Deerfield river. Plenty of easy hiking around the lake as well as along the huge Somerset Reservoir just south of Grout Pond. Tucked in a high basin between Stratton & Mt. Snow, its a moderate drive to Wilmington for supplies and a stellar spot with very spread out camping. The best sites are the ones furthest along the trail, but all very nice.
