We were welcomed by friendly ranger and staff. Stayed at beautiful leanto site right on the river. Handy launch ramp for canoes and kayaks. Best kayak rental in the area. Great location to stay and visit other attractions. Vt State Park campground tag gets you into any other park during your stay.

Really helpful, friendly Ranger on site and as with all Vermont State Parks, it's kept really clean and tidy, sites, bathrooms, facilities etc. Wood and ice are available at the Ranger station and they will deliver the wood. The pavilion at the office/Ranger Station has tables and wifi, also an electric outlet to charge up a tablet, phone or computer... More

The serene Conn. river is right there for swimming and canoeing. You can enjoy the views and campfire while not being "away" in the woods. This is not on a mountain and there are other people nearby but you can enjoy camping with clean, well lit accessible facilities on the premises. Ascutney is nearby (10-15) min. drive for hiking and... More

Stumbled upon this campground 4 years ago and make sure we visit there at least once a year. We like that it is small and quiet and has clean restroom facilities and showers. The Ranger and the rest of the park staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We love that you can launch your kayaks from the... More

My husband and I recently went to Wilgus State Park for a weekend camping trip. We reserved the Osprey cabin, one of four cabins in the campground. All of the cabins are along a relatively short stretch of the campground along the Connecticut River. While the Mink and Otter cabins seem to have a bit more of a buffer between... More

My hubby, his BF and his two boys (ages 12 and 10) and my two dogs spent July 5th-July 8th at Wilgus State Park. We loved it! Very nice, flat, clean campsite. We had campsite #4 and it was VERY private on one side and the other wasn't too, too close. The staff at Wilgus are extemely helpful and very... More

I like using the Vermont parks in my time off and Wilgus State Park is yet another well managed and great park. The ranger and other park people are very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We opted for a cabin which was great. AC power is available to charge all the equipment and wireless is weak at cabin but... More

This is a great campground if your interested in canoeing or kayaking on the river. It's a small campground, with only about 15 sites. All sites appeared to be right above the river or very close to it. The Ranger was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. There are alot of local attractions in the area including The Constitution... More
