THE BEST CAMPING IN

Vermont

About Vermont Camping

Vermont is not only one of the best places to live and work in the U.S.; it’s also a hugely popular vacation destination. All seasons have their own charm in this freethinking New England state, from the long, snowy winters to gloriously sunny summers and, of course, the breathtaking fall foliage. It comes as no surprise that Vermont is popular among campers. Along with hiking, skiing and fishing, camping in Vermont is among the greatest things to do in this gorgeous state.

Vermont is one of the least populated American states, home to vast forests, accessible mountains, and picturesque villages. Whether you come for fishing or hiking, kayaking or skiing, Vermont has it all in world-class quality. Fishing on Lake Champlain can be done all year long – ice fishing in winter through boat trips in summer – while kayaks and canoes are welcome on most rivers and lakes. Hiking, however, is arguably the most practiced outdoor pursuit in the Green Mountain State. Trails crisscross across the land, running along the beautiful Lake Champlain shoreline and up to the highest Green Mountain peaks, such as Camels Hump and Mount Mansfield. Vermont is also home to the oldest long-distance trail in the United States, the Long Trail. This path runs from the Massachusetts border all the way north to Canada, following the crest of the Green Mountains. A section of the beloved Appalachian Trail cuts through the state’s southern part as well. Rest assured that you’ll find plenty of camping in Vermont on the way, along the trails, on riverbanks and lakeshores. Are you a winter camper, too? We sure hope so! Vermont happens to be one of North America’s best destinations for skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. With renowned resorts such as Killington, Sugarbush and Stowe, it’s a winter sports enthusiast’s paradise.

No matter what adventures you’re after, Vermont has you covered. And at The Dyrt, we’re always ready to help you find the best camping in Vermont.

Bear Scat

What a wonderful campground. Even though it is off season, there are several units throughout but dispersed so no one was right next to us. The site was somewhat level with a gravel base. FHU at each site made hook up easy. SURPRISE- when I went to hook up the water, a pile of fresh bear scat was…

Convenient and beautiful lake views nearby

This campground is well maintained, comfortable and clean. A very short and easy drive right outside of Burlington, with direct access to the greenway along the lakefront. Awesome spots in the city waterfront are only about a mile walk\bikeride away, but the campground is far enough outside of town…

Beautiful fields and views

Wow this site was so beautiful!

The road into the site was scenic and beautiful. We followed the river all the way to the very end of the road up on the mountain. From there we decided on a site at the top of the mountain at the end of the long road. We quickly got rained out and went back…

Nice place off route 100 to stay a night

We were happy to find some free dispersed camping off route 100 on our fall road trip. This site was great bc we had it all to ourselves, it would feel crowded and not too private if anyone else joined. Easy to get into for an xterra but if you have an rv I don’t think there is room for you. Make…

Small but mighty

Friendly staff! Extremely well maintained and updated! Nice sites! Great location! While there is road noise from VT 15 it does calm down at night. Will definitely stay there again!

Fun, crowded, and running out of steam

This is a solid, family-friendly campground. It has the standard amenities plus some fun extras (arcade, mini-golf, boat rentals, etc.). However, all amenities are in worn shape. The playground is approaching dangerous, for instance (metal pipe sticking out of sandbox?) and the arcade was…

Beautiful for fall foliage

This campground was great. Quiet, great fire pits, clean bathrooms, firewood and starter for sale plus access to day use area. The lake next to the campground is beautiful and has plenty of picnic tables and grills for use. Close to hiking trails and the city of Bennington.

Very disrespectful owners/ long term residents, sketchy water….

The owners here will meet your with rudeness and disrespect when enforcing their rules for newer people. And yes, new campers… the owners will haze those who do not plan to give them revenue as a long term rv. The drinking water was terrible… I filled a glass at night and by morning debris…

Quiet camp site but outdated bathroom

The campground is more for seasonal campers. Bathroom is outdated. Only one shower towards the end of the bathroom, a bit dark and dirty.

We are here for their last weekend the campground is open. Foliage is just past peak, the staff is friendly, the store is pretty well stocked and everything is clean and tidy. Not too many people know about this place yet, partly due to a vague website. We are fortunate, we had family members tell…
