This 398-acre park has the highest elevation campground of any park in Vermont, at 2400 feet. Woodford is located on a mountain plateau and surrounds Adams Reservoir. The high elevation spruce/fir/birch forest provides an ideal setting for the park. Woodford borders the George Aiken Wilderness Area, which is in the Green Mountain National Forest. There are several lakes and ponds in the surrounding area. The campground has 103 sites including 20 lean-tos. The heavily wooded area surrounds the reservoir and offers great camping opportunities. Flush toilets, hot showers ($), and a dump station are provided. There is a small beach and picnic area near the dam with pit toilet facilities. Rowboats, canoes, and kayaks are available for rent. There are several hiking trails, including a 2.7 mile trail around the lake.

I hiked here as part of a 65 mile section of the Long Trail I was doing. The hike is was fairly difficult with a lot of ups and downs. The top of Glastenbury has an old fire tower with amazing views in all directions. The shelter is a little ways downhill from the summit. I would recommend returning to the fire tower to watch the sunset after you set up camp.

a buddy and I did this in January 2014. We started at route 9 and snow shoed all the way in to the GOddard Shelter, and back out the next morning instead of the west ridge. It was EXTREMELY cold overnight with ambient temps below zero and wind chills around -30. In the morning we made our way up tto the top of the fire tower, then broke trail the whole way out. It was somewhat grueling and should not be taken lightly in the winter. Would have gotten five stars, except you don't get much in the way of views, and the AT blazes are very worn so trail finding in deep fresh snow can be interesting...
