Description Green Ridge is the second largest of Maryland's State Forests consisting of a 46,000-acre oak-hickory forest. It is located in eastern Allegany County, approximately eight miles east of Flintstone off I-68 at Exit 64. The forest is located in the Ridge and Valley Province of the Allegheny Mountain chain. The average annual precipitation is 36 inches, the lowest in the state. Town Hill, Green Ridge and Polish Mountains elevation varies from 475 feet at the Potomac River to 2,039 feet on Town Hill. Magnificent views of the surrounding landscape can be seen from Point Lookout, Banners, Logroll, Warrior Mountain and No Name Overlooks. Rich in history, the forest was once the site for the Carroll Furnace, originally built as part of a steam powered saw mill in the 1830's. Camping Green Ridge offers 100 designated primitive campsites located throughout 46,000 acres. Group sites as well as sites located along the Potomac River and along the off-road vehicle trail are available. Pets are permitted in the forest on a leash. A service charge of $10 per night for up to six people and $1 for each additional person is required. Camping permits may be obtained from Green Ridge State Forest headquarters.
