Rutland Airport with camping hosted by the EAA Chapter 968 Green Mountain Flyers
5000ft Lighted Asphalt 76degrees 68nm
E.A.A Chapter 968, 'The Green Mountain Flyers' and the Vermont Agency of Transportation welcome fly-in campers to the Southern Vermont Regional Airport in Rutland (RUT). The airport is located in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains which offer scenic beauty and four-season recreational opportunities.
The Lisa Fall Memorial Airport Camp-site is located in a wooded area on the east side of the airport. A tenting site is approximately 100' from the east end of the T hangers, just north of the east end of runway 13/31. The site has a picnic table and a 12x12 foot tent platform. Toilet facilities and drinking water are available at the nearby FBO (not open at night). Camping is without charge on a first-come first-served basis though you can reserve the site by contacting one of the people below.
Ground transportation is available by either rental cars or by public bus which passes the gate several times each day going south to Manchester, VT and north into Rutland where there are connections to the Killington resort and other local destinations.
This one would be a great destination on the day of their pancake breakfast!
