I am reviewing the campground. I went on a last minute camping/hiking trip in late September. There are not TOO many sites which is good in a lot of ways, including tent/RV, cabins and lean-to's. The sites are a decent size, not too big. we had two cars on site and fit two 2-person tents no problem. There is a... More

We spent a few nights in this campground while enjoying the autumn colors. Our site was a good size, fairly private, and very neat and tidy. The site had been raked and the fireplace had been cleaned out. The restrooms were clean. Ice and fire wood available at the park office for a very reasonable price. Great hiking trails in... More

Nice hiking trails and campground looks clean and peaceful. Hiking can be easy to hard depending on your health and stamina.

My husband and I camped here in August 2014 for 3 nights on a lean-to site. The site was very clean and had clearly been raked and the fire pit had been cleaned out prior to our arrival so there was no need to shovel it out ourselves. The lean-tos are great because you can ut all of your stuff... More

Chosen for the location near Long Trail Brewing and several high VT peaks, this was a great find. A little hard to find, however, but well worth it. Classing up to a "lean-to" instead of a primitive sight might be a good idea if travelling with little ones or testy female companions!

We camped here one night on a road trip through the western and central parts of the state. The park itself was peaceful but there is quite a bit of road noise from Rt. 100. We walked the Kent Brook Trail which was a nice walk but I was underwhelmed by the tree size. They are billed in the park... More

The Ranger at the entrance is very helpful and friendly. You can spend as much time as you want hiking and enjoying the views. Kids of all ages will enjoy.

We stopped here on a rainy day to walk the Kent Brook Trail. Due to the weather, we were the only people in the park and had the trail to ourselves. The trail through the old growth forest was interesting and alerted us to look for similar conditions in other locations. This trail is suitable for young and inexperienced hikers.... More

A typical visit here might include a day hike through the trees or around the nearby lake. The lake trail is highly recommended for its lake views, but also a small but scenic cascade into the lake. Worth a visit, especially during the peak autumn color season.

I decided to go to VT for an autumnfestpolration and I was so happy to have done my research ahead of time! the sites are clean and tidy and the cabins clean and cozy! Easy access to bathrooms and showers. The trails and views were stunning. I completed 14.9 miles and hit 4 summits. I loved every minute. What impressed... More
