About the Park:

This 398-acre park has the highest elevation campground of any park in Vermont, at 2400 feet. Woodford is located on a mountain plateau and surrounds Adams Reservoir. The high elevation spruce/fir/birch forest provides an ideal setting for the park. Woodford borders the George Aiken Wilderness Area, which is in the Green Mountain National Forest. There are several lakes and ponds in the surrounding area.

The campground has 103 sites including 20 lean-tos. The heavily wooded area surrounds the reservoir and offers great camping opportunities. Flush toilets, hot showers ($), and a dump station are provided. There is a small beach and picnic area near the dam with pit toilet facilities. Rowboats, canoes, and kayaks are available for rent. There are several hiking trails, including a 2.7 mile trail around the lake.

Ice is not available for sale at Woodford State Park. The Woodford Mountain General Store sells ice and is located approximately 3 miles outside the park.
