Overview

Overview

Hapgood Pond Campground is situated next to its scenic namesake pond, 13 miles east of Manchester, Vermont. Visitors enjoy canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming and hiking.

Natural Features:

Hapgood Pond covers eight acres and is set in a wooded area in the northeastern portion of the Green Mountain National Forest, which encompasses over 400,000 acres in southwestern and central Vermont.

The forest includes three nationally designated trails: the Appalachian Trail, the Long Trail and the Robert Frost National Recreation Trail. The forest also contains three alpine ski areas, seven Nordic ski areas and approximately 900 miles of multiple-use trails.

Recreation:

The small pond is a popular place for non-motorized boating, including canoeing and kayaking. A carry-down launch area is located on the south end of the pond. Fishing and swimming are also favorite activities. Hapgood boasts the forest's only designated and managed swim beach. A fishing pier is located on the shore.

Hapgood Pond Trail begins in the day-use area and continues almost a mile around the north edge of the pond to the dam. A short spur trail follows a stream and winds through the woods around the pond.

Younger visitors love the big play field area within Hapgood, a perfect spot for Frisbee or ball games.

Facilities:

Hapgood offers family campsites and day-use picnic shelters for groups. First come, first served sites are available. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

Each family campsite is equipped with a picnic table, campfire ring with grill, parking spur and a cleared area for a tent. Each group picnic shelter can accommodate up to 35 people, and is equipped with a pavilion, picnic tables and a grill.

Nearby Attractions:

The town of Manchester, Vermont, popular for its shops, restaurants and other attractions, including the American Museum of Fly Fishing, is a short drive away.
