Lush with Amazing Views

Vermont parks are just some the most lush you’ve ever seen. Our trip was a bit “dampened” by an extremely rainy Memorial Day weekend, but what we did see was beautiful and we’d love to actually hike up Mt. Ascutney. When we did finally catch a patch of sun, we drove up the “toll” road and the views were spectacular! Whether it’s a hike or a drive, I highly recommend it! Just note, the road closes after dusk and a barrier goes down.

Our site was beautiful, very generously sized, relatively private and nicely shaded. Also just a short distance to the bathroom, which while a bit of the rustic side, had it’s cute, endearing qualities.

The grounds are a quick drive to Harpoon Brewery, which is situated in a plaza with a craft spirit, ice cream and accoutrements shops. Between these and the great outdoors, the area has a ton to offer.
