Originally built by Willis Barnes in 1910 as a logging camp,

the structure has been used as a Long Trail hiking shelter, a ski dormitory, and off-day housing for Green Mountain Club caretakers. In 2014, Barnes Camp underwent a complete renovation with the goal of establishing a primary point of contact for area visitors interested in recreation and the natural history of Smugglers’ Notch.

We are looking for at least 20 volunteers who love meeting new people and enjoy sharing their knowledge of the natural and cultural significance of the area. The schedule is flexible – four-hour shifts on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from June through Columbus Day weekend. There will be a  training day on May 13th for new volunteers.
