Wonderful spot to run through. Don't try and go on foot in the winter. Roads are closed and unplowed.

The campground is a good place to stay for only a night or two. The sites do not offer much privacy, but there are hot showers and outdoor sinks for washing dishes. The best part is the proximity of Tanglewood for shows.
