Grout Pond Recreation Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is no sanitized, drive-in, drive-out campground. The campsites at Grout Pond are spread out along a hiking trail that winds around the western shore of the pond. You have to hike your gear in to your tent site. This extra effort will give you a huge payoff, though.
You hike in to any of the 11 tent and lean-to sites via the Pond Loop Trail. This trail cuts through a dense forest, through which you can catch tantalizing glimpses of the pond as you start out. As its name implies, the Pond Loop Trail brings you all the way around Grout Pond. The campsites are spread liberally along the first mile of the trail. No camping is permitted beyond site 11, the last developed tent site. Since you hike in to the sites, parking is in the small lot past the campground host cabin."
