Report: If you're going to the Green Door, don't worry about bringing a gun because they hand them out at the door...sheesh. The park is very nice however...

Report: We enjoyed tent camping at Hugh White State Park. The nights were quiet, so we were able to enjoy the serenity of the woods. Fishing at the spillway meant a fast-paced afternoon (beware of wind burn), and for some, a relaxing game of pool and a cold beer is guaranteed at the Green Door! We grilled at our campsite for both breakfast and dinner. If we ever needed supplies, a grocery store is not hard to find in Grenada. Just find highway 8 and keep straight. I would highly recommend this park to anyone who enjoys tent camping!
