Winhall Brook Campground is nestled in the Green Mountains of Vermont along Winhall Brook and the West River, seven miles from Ball Mountain Lake.

The campground has strong appeal to the outdoorsman at heart, offering hiking, biking and fishing opportunities in a beautiful natural setting.

Natural Features:

Winhall Brook consists of broad grassy meadows surrounded by heavily wooded areas. The campground lies among a beautiful northern hardwood forest, which provides outstanding fall color and wildlife habitat.

Visitors enjoy catching glimpses of the region's wildlife. Moose, white-tailed deer, black bear, bald eagles, owls, osprey, loons, woodpeckers and a wide variety of songbirds and waterfowl can be found in the area.


The campground offers several waterways in which to fish and play. The West River is stocked with Atlantic salmon; smallmouth bass, brook, rainbow and brown trout can also be found.

Hiking and biking are popular activities in the campground. The West River Trail stretches 16 miles along parts of the long-since-abandoned West River Railroad, providing a safe and scenic route for hiking and biking. The trail connects the villages of South Londonderry, Jamaica and Townsend.

Ball Mountain Lake is nearby, with fishing, hiking and scenic overlooks. Water is released from the dam to create whitewater opportunities for rafting and kayaking every September.


Winhall Brook offers 111 campsites, 14 lean-to shelters and a limited number of electric and water hookups. Flush toilets, showers, drinking water and dump stations are provided. Younger campers enjoy the park's three playgrounds.
