     Winhall Brook Camping Area is operated by the Army Corps of Engineer, and is located on Routes 100-30 about halfway between Brattleboro and Rutland VT. There are two camping loops spread out along each side of Winhall River where it meets the West River. The South Loop has 68 campsites and 7 lean-to's, while the North loop features 29 sites and 7 lean-to's; there are a few sites with E/W hookups near the beginning of the South Loop. Most sites are pleasantly grassy and quite open, some offer some shade. There is a dump station.

    We had the North Loop all to ourselves when we stopped by Winhall Brook. Site #35 North struck our fancy - it was right on the riverbank where the two rivers meet.

    Date of visit: Oct 2005

    The foliage was running a bit late, but it was still a beautiful sight along the West River.

    Both camping loops feature modern bathhouses with hot showers.

    A year earlier In 2004 we picked Site 36 South. The "babbling brook" is just beyond the trees.

    We awoke to find the valley fogged in, but it quickly burned off.

    There are miles of hiking trails in both directions along the West River. This section, heading north, follows the river along an old railroad bed.


     111 sites, 23 with electric hookup - $18-$22

    Dump station, showers
