When we started going to Green Mountain Park in the 90's it was a nice place to take a family. We stayed there 2 weeks ago and I couldn't believe how run down it is. The cable don't work half the time, the pool is cracked, the wooden decks and steps are rotting and the store is no longer open. How do they call it a 5 star resort? It's next to impossible to get a good place to camp because all the nice places are annual sites. The new area was supposed to be open last year and management keeps saying it'll be ready in 2 weeks. Right. There's one security guard on the premises at night and most of the time he was in the gatehouse watching television. We were very disappointed with our stay. I wish the park could get back to the way it used to be.

I agree totally with you. Green mtn. Could be nice again under the right management.the management at that place leave something to be desired .I quit going up there because they have rules that don't apply to everyone. .Things like if you're a friend of theirs you can do anything you want to.if not you must follow the rules to the letter.

I know exactly what you mean. We camped up there for several years this place is so run down. It is the management for sure Joe and Sam. I paid my dues every year along with all the other members where is the money going. The decks are terrible falling in, cable is terrible. It is not a five star resort in my book. I have complained to Thousand Trails and all they tell me is talk to the resort manager Joe does no good to talk to him he always comes up with excuses. When we first started camping up there you could pick 3 spots of your choice and most of the time you got one of those, then it was first come first serve, then the next thing annual sites so all the good sites got taken. I really don't know if it is Joe and Sam making all these rules or if it is Thousand Trails but I do know that this place is a dump.

We are still members but stopped going. Joe and Sam do not run the place right. I agree with everything that has been said. I wonder where the money is going too. Not for repairs that is for sure! It used to be a great place and we had a lot of fun up there but it has gone down hill! I would love to see them get new managers and get it back to the way it used to be.

I have complained and complained to Thousand Trails about them and how the place has become but I get no where. I think Joe and Sam are pocketing some of the money they make up the rules as they go.

I wonder why the EPA does not close them down. They dump sewage in the water. I have seen it go in. They do not act like it is a big deal but it is. It used to be a good place but it is so run down and has so many stupid rules I have no desire to go back up there. Others feel the same way.

Is it possible the EPA doesn't know about the sewage? I'm sure they would be there to check it out if it's been reported.

You are exactly right about Joe And Sam .They think they are untouchable .They will be found out one of these days . Gmp needs a good manager with some common sense

There is no security around that place either. A 14 year old boy got escorted out by police weekend before last for touching girls. This place is awful just another reason I don't go up there because if someone touched my daughter they wouldn't have to wait till the police got there I would take care of it first they would be coming to get me.

It wasn't a 14 year old boy that the police took out. It was a man in his late 40's. He waa drunk and hanging around the great hall and game room. The kids were young, 2 boys and 1 girl. He's not allowed back in the park.

From my understanding it was the sheriffs brother-in-law. Was not arrested or anything , just made to leave.

It used to be really nice and I am so thankful we sold our membership before it turned in to the slums..

Another example of how Joe and Sam have ruined the place. If the owner doesn't do something fast it'll turn in to a regular dump
