Campground Details

Number of Sites: 34

A visit to Townshend State Park, located at the foot of Bald Mountain on a bend of the West River, feels like a step back in time. The park was constructed during the Great Depression by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a public works program aimed at putting young men to work.

The campground, situated in a wooded area, has 30 tent/trailer sites and 4 lean-to sites. There are two bathrooms, one of which has showers ($). A picnic shelter with a fireplace and three tables is attached to the ranger's quarters. There is a trail to the top of Bald Mountain for day hiking. Note: Due to the park's physical layout, there is a limit of 6 people per site and only one (1) vehicle per site.

Directions:
From the North - Take Route 30 South to the Townshend Lake Recreation Area; turn right over dam, then left at T-intersection. Park is 2 miles ahead on right.
