Lots of space, right on the lake, and nice campsights. As far as state parks go, this is up there with the best! It's usually pretty full, so book a spot early.

A really great 'get away from it all' spot. There are many campsites so worth taking some time to pick a spot. We chose a lean to with a great view of the lake however there is a small, rocky beach with a nice grassy area that everyone can access. Bathrooms were spotless; a hot shower cost 50 cents. Note...

I haven't taken my two children camping since they were 3 and 6 (not a pleasant experience). Now that they are 10 and 13, I decided to give it another try. Grand Isle State Park in VT was an excellent choice for us! We were at the SHAD site which overlooked the lake and had a lean-to. We appreciated being... More

My hubby and his best friend and I stayed the week of July 4th weekend. Our campsite was chosen only a month before so I blame us for the limited availability. The site was tiny and it said big enough for large tent or small camper. We did manage to get two large tents on the site but we were... More

We stayed in the Beech lean to overlooking the lake. I booked it in January and had to play around with 2 months worth of dates to get 5 straight nights which should tell you something. Our site and the campground is gorgeous. I was able to use a rope between my site and the one next to us to... More

This was our first time camping and it was a great experience. The campground was very clean, polite staff, easy to get around! We spent the 4th of July weekend here and had a great time. The only addition I'd like to see is some kind of activities/music at night. Other then that, it was a great experience.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the campsite. There were trees separating the lots, which was fun for intimacy...We also enjoyed the fact that there are many washrooms located at different parts of the campground. This is great because you never have to walk too far for a washroom. Although there were not many activities for children, there was... More

The place is huge, beautiful and clean campground. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We rented a lean-to (fir) facing the lake which is very perfect, specially during sunset.
