It was a very easy Campsite to find. However, upon arriving we found the road to the campsite to be closed. Hopefully this is resolved soon

Upper Michigan Road provides access to a handful of primitive campsites in the Green Mountains National Forest. It was easy to navigate from the highway (about 40 minutes from I-89), and while the campsites are not well-marked, you can easily identify the driveways off of the main forest road. I believe that most of the campsites are grassy spaces within the trees, but the third campsite is special as it is adjacent to Michigan Brook itself. We arrived at noon on a Saturday and were pleasantly surprised to find it available, and it's lucky we got there when we did because three different cars tried to pull in not long after we arrived. There was plenty of space for two cars and two tents, and we could've fit at least one more of each. There is a fire pit next to the brook and a makeshift bench. The spot was serene and the babbling brook in the background made for a peaceful night's rest.

There is no cell service in the forest, but we were able to get a signal about 15 minutes away in Pittsfield.

We were not pulling an RV, and the forest road is a bit rutted, so I'm not sure what if anything you could tow to this site. I did see a truck towing a pop-up camper past our site just fine. I think the concerns would be the clearance and the length of an RV, which might be tough to get around some turns in the road.

To find the third campsite, drive roughly 1.5 miles from the state forest entrance sign. You will be going a bit up hill, and then you will have a noticeable decent. At the bottom of that hill, there is a grassy opening on the left that will lead you to the site. If you go over a bridge, you've gone too far.
