What better way to spend time with the family than exploring the dense, lush reserve that is the Green Mountains. Located in the South- West region of Vermont, these mountain ranges boast incredible 360 panoramic views and serve as a perfect base to explore what the region has to offer. Some of the mountains are developed for skiing and other snow-related activities. Others have hiking trails for use in summer. All of the major peaks are traversed by the Long Trail, a wilderness hiking trail that runs from the Southern to Northern borders of the state and is overlapped by the Appalachian Trail.There are two types of campsites in the park: developed and primitive. As the name suggests, the developed sites are those made ready for campers by the forest staff. While most of these campgrounds are seasonal, usually open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, whilst a few are open year-round. The primitive campsites are much more dispersed throughout the forest and campers are required to leave the sites in the same condition that they found them. No foreign wood is allowed in Green Mountain in order to avoid bringing in outside pests. There are plenty of fishing opportunities in Green Mountain National Forest. The two most-popular areas are the Rochester and Manchester ranger districts. Nothing beats this location for camping as a family in the Green Mountains. With plenty of activities and views to soak up, you will be scrambling back here to experience this amazing part of the world throughout the years!
