Mt. Greylock State Reservation Campground

Mt. Greylock State Reservation Campground
Mt. Greylock State Reservation is undergoing major visitor safety and recreational improvements until 2009, as part of an Historic Parkway Rehabilitation Project. However, the park's excellent visitor's center and trails remain open. Hike to the summit of 3,491-foot Mt. Greylock, for which the park gets its name. The reservation has over 70 miles of trails, including a section of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is the highest peak in Massachusetts. Acquired by the Commonwealth in 1898, it was Massachusetts` first state park. For years, Mt. Greylock has inspired artists and writers, including authors Herman Melville and Henry David Thoreau. After arriving at the summit by foot-trail or auto, you can see a panorama of five states. This 35 site campground offers limited services (no showers, flush toilets or running water) but great access to spectacular views and a rare alpine environment. Included in the Reservation`s 70 miles of trails is the famous Appalachian Trail.
