I wish I could give 0 stars-the 1 star is for beautiful lake Champlain. This campground is run by rude, incompetent people. Period. The camp sights are small. As someone alluded to in an earlier post, it seems to to attract unsavory clientele as evidenced by our loud neighbors. Management did stop by to ask them to quiet down as... More

Stayed here a week for our family vacation. Pros: close location near town and beach, clean (for campground) restrooms. Cons: tiny sites- hope you get good neighbor(s), seems to attract transient campers who enjoy using loud foul language 24/7. Several nights we had loud neighbors. Day staff told us to call security during night if we had a complaint. Sure... More

It's a bit confusing to be driving down a main street then turning on a street that takes you right between a local high school and soccer/track field and then down a small hill, in search of a campground. But, just keep going because you will certainly arrive at a spectacular place to spend a night, or two, or twenty!... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this campground. The campground itself was in a great location, right on Lake Champlain, right on the bike path, and very close to downtown Burlington. The beach was really nice and within walking distance to our camper. Everyone, we met were really friendly. A great family campground! Pros: great location, helpful staff, walking distance to...

We arrived, with a skip in our step. When we walked into the office we were dragging our heels. When I told the clerk that we had a reservation, she gleefully retorted, oh, no you don't! I went back to our vehicle to get our confirmation number. When I returned with it, the clerk started griping at me. Poor attitude... More

The location is great but there are many drawbacks: 1. Bathrooms are disgusting. Rarely cleaned, NO soap for hand washing, and it costs 50 cents to shower in cold water. 2. Campsites are TINY and not all have a fire ring with a grill grate. 3. The beach is great but be prepared for a lot of homeless people hanging... More

North Beach is a beautiful, and ideally located campground. This year was our third vacation there, and the restrooms have degraded to a deplorable and unsanitary condition. The showers were finally cleaned on our fifth day there after I asked the attendant on how often they are cleaned. There is no hand soap, and that's disgusting. I am writing the... More

Visited friends at the campground. The place is really nice just by the beach and bike path. It was actually full - no vacancies due to the Quebec long week end. Very regulated and police patrolled. Campsites are compact and very close together - and as it was already mentioned it is a mix of RVs and tents - not... More

For tents: Campgrounds are large, right by the bike path and beach to Lake Champlain, private from the public. Restrooms are basic, showers were hot (50 cents for 6 minutes). Security is fantastic- never felt so safe camping outside! Employees monitor the campgrounds 24hr a day.

We arrived at North Beach Campground on a Friday in mid September, around dinnertime. We'd called around 2:00 pm that day, had NO problems getting a person to answer the phone, and no problems making a reservation. Funny thing, though: the lady who took my call seemed genuinely concerned that we could get to Burlington from Concord, VT before the... More
