My Summer Work…

I am spending my second summer working for the Vermont State Parks and am once again back at Green River Reservoir State Park. This is a great park to work at since it allows me to spend 20 to 25 hours per week paddling a kayak on the reservoir. Our two main task are to take care of the office, reservations and check-ins, and to check the camp sites. The furthest site from the put-in area is about an hour paddle and the closest is around 10 minutes.

The reservoir is a beautiful place and I could spend hours watching the Loons that call it home for the summer. This summer we had four nesting pairs and several single adults.

Early mornings are my favorite time in the park.

GRRSP is a paddle park, no gas engines allowed so it is considered one of the best spots in the state for paddle board, canoe and kayak people. We all so get quite a few out-of-state visitors and campers. The only access to our camp sites is by water so we are considered a primitive camping experience. Although each of our sites has a fire ring of stones and a composting toilet, but that is all you get.
