4 Green Mountain National Forest campgrounds to stay open through Columbus Day


RUTLAND, Vermont — The U.S. Forest Service says four campgrounds in the Green Mountain National Forest are going to stay open through Columbus Day.

Until recently the campgrounds have closed on Labor Day.

But now the Hapgood Pond, Chittenden Brook, Moosalamoo, and Silver Lake campgrounds will remain open through Oct. 14.

The Forest Service says the extended openings are a way to provide the public with more opportunity to camp during the fall foliage season.

The forest is made up of more than 400,000 acres of land.
