If your idea of camping is a quiet family campground that brings you back to nature, then you’ve come to the right place. Just north of the town of Arlington on Historic Route 7A you’ll find Camping on the Battenkill. A wooded Family Campground along the Battenkill River with spacious tent, W/E, and full hook-up sites to accommodate RVs up to 45'
All kinds of sites
I stayed right on the river in site 14 with a small popup. The river is beautiful and the site was huge. We did some fishing and swimming. I get the feeling the other end of the campground with the RVs is not as nice and can be loud, but you can avoid it by staying on the tent side.
The river is nice.. The "playground" is dangerous and very dated. People get drunk and drive like maniacs through the campground at night. Tubing is fun…
We were at site 17, and it was a massive site. Lots of room would be great for a large family or group. The beach on the river is beautiful and clean! Easy swimming for all. Wish there was more privacy, the site had little tree cover between sites, (at our site). Overall great spot, well maintained, clean, with a nice beach. Close to things to do on and off river.
Spring camping in southern VT. Trees had not fully leafed out yet when we visited, but I would think this would be a well shaded campground. We had our small camper on a tent site to be near the river. Some sites were right on the river, many larger RVs were closer to an open play area/field. There were hookups and dump station. Dog friendly. Fishing and "swimming" or tubing in season I should think.
