I spent a couple of days at Abel Mountain with my dog, and we both had a nice stay. The campground is quiet and relaxing with plenty of space and a beautiful river that kept my dog entertained for hours. I was at site 72, an easy pull-through with plenty of shade.
Wifi was decent, cable hook-up did not provide a clear picture, and Verizon cell service was minimal.
Close to Randolph for groceries and take-out. The Barn gas station complex off of Exit 4 was perfect for fueling-up before getting back on the road.
Excellent military discount - 25%, so the stay was similar in cost to staying on at a military base's Famcamp.
If I'm ever back in Vermont, I'll probably stay here again.
This is NOT a fancy campground, it is a real campground that bends over backward to make it a pleasure to be there. Sites are large enough so that you feel you have your own site and stretch out some. Good electric etc, some sites with sewer. WE camp on a site on the river, some sites you can hear the river rushing over the rocks and some not but we like the view of the river when outside. We like exploring wherever we camp and Braintree is very interesting and has interesting surrounding towns etc.
My husband and I are seniors and spent 3 nights, Tuesday to Friday in June on site 51. Abel Mtn. Campground was easy enough to find. We have a 21' travel trailer and took advantage of the full hookups that most of the sites provide, including our first time using cable TV. As everyone else who reviews this place said, the owners are the first pleasure you find there. There's a heated pool, strong WiFi at your site, tons of clean river sites, immaculate rest rooms with an accessible ramp and lots of showers. For activities, you can hike on trails across the foot bridge and fish in many places along the river. They recycle everything possible and even provide composting of plant based waste. We have rarely found a returnable bottles and cans container so finding that and even composting is a notch well above the competition. Being the middle of June, there were no kids around but the photos and the two playgrounds tell us kids must love the place. Sites are back-in and very level on gravel pads. We highly recommend the place. Oh and a word to the wise, you will hear a train go by somewhere and the whistle will wake you up but no worries, it's all part of the ambiance.
