CAMEL’S HUMP FOREST RESERVE MAP VERMONT

Situated in north-central Vermont, this state forest reserve is the home of 4,083-foot Camel’s Humpthe wildest and least developed mountain in the state, and second highest. Superb views are available from open areas near the top.

Terrain at higher elevations is quite rugged, with rock formations and arctic-alpine tundra near the summit. Below are hardwood forests with old-growth fir and other conifers, plus some streams. Wildlife includes white-tailed deer, black bear, coyote, and fox.

Activities: There are several trails for backpacking and hiking, including a section of the Long Trail (see entry page 282). Difficulty ranges from easy to strenuous. Limited cross-country skiing is available during the winter. Fishing is possible, and hunting is permitted in season.

Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed at established sites, which include two tenting areas with platforms and two closed cabins. One may also camp elsewhere, although only at elevations Under 2,500 feet. Campfires are permitted, but the use of a stove is recommended.

Nondesignated sites must be at least 100 feet from water sources, 200 feet from trails, and 2,500 feet from roads, shelters, or developed areas. A few parts of the forest are off-limits to camping. A permit is required for groups of 11 or more.
