My husband and I stayed here in our popup in June 2018. It was nice to be so close to the city and we were able to ride our bikes everywhere easily. The sites were all very open and close together, and the bathhouses could have used a good scrub, but overall it was an acceptable place given its proximity to the city. Don't bother buying the firewood from the main office, it was not seasoned and impossible to use.
Since this campground is withing Burlington city limits it is a bit cramped and can get crowded. However it's location makes it convenient too. Plus it's right on Lake Champlain with great beach access.
Place was amazing! Had perfect spots with 5 other families we were all together. Short walk to beach, bike path into Burlington which was such a cool town! There’s a skate park & lots to do. We took a huge ferry around lake Champlain which was so cool. Kids loved it! The lake is so beautiful with the mountains in the background. You couldn’t ask for a better view. Loved our vacation here!
This place has an amazing Beach area and is really well manicured with great walking paths and boardwalks. However, they do pack you in like sardines here. We camp in a 20 foot camper van and we felt large and bulky trying to get into our spot. At $41 a night it's not incredibly cheap, but it is a great location if you want to explore Burlington.
bring your bikes! you’re tucked away in the woods on gorgeous lake champlain and can bike into burlington for meals and city street strolls. it’s great!
This has been one of our favorite campsites so far. We loved being able to walk down to the beach, as well as having full hookups. We also met the nicest people here. You can purchase firewood at the office, and there are also propane options. It was peaceful here yet also a fun place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at North Beach Campground.
We spent 4 days in a full hookup site. The site was spacious, tree covered, and hard packed grass/dirt. Overall the site was very level with good water pressure. The water/electric sites in the middle of the campground were a bit snug. The campground is a city operated campground and we were impressed with the upkeep, maintenance and friendly service during our stay. The camp office is small, but has information on area attractions, Ice, and fire wood. The bathhouse/restrooms were well kept during our stay even with the volume of campers at the site.
Location, Location, Location is the main reason to stay at North Beach. The campground is literally along the Island Line bike/walking trail and had direct access to the beach on Lake Champlain (life guards, snack bar, and patio bar). The city center of Burlington is only 1.5 miles along the bike path from the campground. Most days we either walked or biked into town (which has ample bike racks to park your bike).
While we stayed in our camper, as a former die-hard tent camper, I was impressed with the number of tent friendly sites, because most campgrounds see tenters as “second class”. The tent sites were spacious, level, and not located in some obscure location.
We loved North Beach and plan to camp here in the future!
We stay every year for the Vermont City Marathon. It is a convenient bike ride down the bike path to the waterside park. Easy access to all of Burlington by bike. Reasonable price for campsites and the sites are large. Staff are always friendly.
Smaller tent sites. One centrally located bathroom. Nice mix of sun and shade. Convenient to down town and waterfront. Beach is beautiful and conveniently close to sites.
Right on the Burlington bike path and across the beach, there is plenty to do and easy access to town and other attractions. Other than the beach itself, this is not a resort campground but it is in an outdoor paradise with plenty to do in the area. Bathrooms were more than acceptable
