Report: This campground is great if all you care about is fishing or boating, and don't mind where you sleep. The campground is undeveloped with no trees and the sites are very close to each other, however the outhouses are clean and the sites are level, including a fire ring and a picnic table. Gas/food/beer/bait are available at a mom & pop store about a mile north along the reservoir
Conditions: Dry and clear.. noise travels at this campground, so you can hear traffic noise and music from across the reservoir. This campground is near the south (narrow end) of Green Mountain
Water Availability: Bring your own drinking water, none available
