Campground Details

At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is the highest point in Massachusetts. Rising above the surrounding Berkshire landscape, dramatic views of 60-90 miles distant may be seen. It became Massachusetts' first wilderness state park, acquired by the Commonwealth in 1898, to preserve its natural environment for public enjoyment. Wild and rugged yet intimate and accessible, Mount Greylock rewards the visitor exploring this special place of scenic and natural beauty.

The Mount Greylock Campground is a primitive backpacking experience; it is accessible by hiking only. 15 tent sites (4 person maximum), 7 group sites (12 person maximum). One-night minimum stay. Reservations are required from May 27 to October 10. Limited services available: solar composting toilets; potable drinking water is not available, filter or treat from available water source (brook) or bring own supply. Overnight parking is available at the designated campground parking lot on Rockwell Road (late-May through Nov. 1) and at Haley Farm/Hopper Road trailhead (year-round). Visit directions or park trail map for access point locations.

Easiest (a moderate hike with backpack), from designated campground parking area on Rockwell Road via the Campground Trail, a gradual 1.3 mile hike. Elevation gain/loss 100 ft.
More challenging, from the Haley Farm/Hopper Road trailhead in Williamstown via the Hopper Trail, a 2.4 mile uphill hike. Elevation gain 1,275 ft.
