Welcome to Mt. Greylock Campsite Park

Mt. Greylock Campsite Park is a jewel in the Berkshires located at the base of Mount Greylock State Reservation in Lanesborough, MA. There is a reason why this campground has so many old friends coming back and why the new campers are making it a tradition-it's beautiful here! 

Mt. Greylock Campsite Park is a 47-acre, 112 site recreational park that can accommodate tents and RV's up to 45 feet. There are two bathhouses with toilets, sinks, and free hot showers. The sites are deep and wide and are nestled in the woods, separated by trees and grass.

We are excited to welcome a few new groups to play the campground this year, including Legal Tender! The complete schedule will be ready soon so watch the bulletin boards throughout the campground and our website for all the details.

Campfire Cooking

I love campfire cooking! Burgers and s'mores soon became marinated steak kabobs and Dutch oven pot roast, biscuits and cinnamon rolls! I have always been interested in learning more about food, the sources of ingredients and food preparation. So interested, that I went to Berkshire Community College a few years ago and earned a Culinary Arts Certificate! One of our long term plans on the campground a new commercial kitchen in the basement of the Activity Center so that I can share my interest in food preparation with our guests and community.

When our family camped, I tried to incorporate a different campfire cooking method or recipe into each trip. Whenever possible, I incorporated fresh vegetables, meat and dairy products from a local Farmer's Market. Our Lanesborough Farmer's Market opens on Saturday, May 1st in the parking lot of the Berkshire Mall. I encourage you to build a visit there into your camping plans this year.

Do you want to try a new campfire cooking method this season? Why not try a pie iron? A pie iron is a hinged sandwich maker, used primarily for cooking over a campfire. When purchasing a pie iron, make sure the two halves of your pie iron can be separated for easy cleaning and seasoning. Pie irons come in circular and square shapes. Try purchasing one of each for a variety of recipes. If you often camp in large groups, you might want to consider a larger pie iron that can handle two pies or sandwiches as once. New cast iron pie irons will need to be seasoned before they are used in order to get a nonstick cooking surface. Directions for seasoning, if needed, will be included with your purchase of your pie iron.

Try this recipe next time you go camping:

Cheesy Spinach Calzones
(serve with pizza sauce)

Ingredients:
Refrigerated pizza dough Sliced onions, bell peppers, mushrooms Mozzarella cheese
Frozen spinach, thawed, drained, squeezed dry Alfredo sauce (a few tablespoons)
Mozzarella cheese Minced garlic
Salt & pepper Pizza sauce

Coat a pie iron with cooking spray. Roll dough think and cut into pieces to fit iron; press one piece inside. Pile on the spinach, chopped onion and sliced peppers. Add sliced mushrooms, garlic, Alfredo sauce and cheese, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add another dough piece, close the iron and cook over warm coals. Turn occasionally until dough is cooked and nicely browned.

There are other terrific main dish and dessert recipes that can be made with pie irons. Let us know if you try it and be sure to take pictures to enter into our 2021 Photo Contest. Camping offers us time away from home with family and/or friends, a chance to relax in the outdoors and to recreate ourselves through physical outdoor activities, nature studies and learning new things! Try something new this year at Mt. Greylock Campsite Park!

We were first time RVers and selected Mt Greylock Campsite Park for our vacation sight unseen. Gordon and Pat were welcoming and made our stay very enjoyable. The tree lined site was quiet, clean and private. This was the perfect COVID vacation.

The owners of this campground are the nicest people. We wanted to go camping mid November in the Berkshires. After calling a lot of campground that were all closed already I made one final call to this campground. Although they were planning on closing the week before they said they would keep the campground open for us to come. They were so accommodating and friendly when we got there. They told us all the areas that were interesting to see and brought fire wood right to our campsite. I would highly recommend them and I know we will definitely be going back.

Wonderful campground at the foot of Mt. Greylock. Gordon and Pat welcome you and know how to take care of you and your needs. Lots of help with my troubling hitch and Gordon bailed me out in a big way. Music on Saturday nights, roomy sites that are very private. Wonderful place to stay. Even a food truck for when you just don't feel like cooking. Will gladly stay again.
Bonnie R
Awesome campsite! Owner is very polite, and the park is easy to navigate. Also, there's a pond that is home to frogs and prawns at night. I went frog-catching at night, and it was awesome! Great place!
