I had stayed at the Grey Bonnet Inn last winter, and they told us we could use the trails to snowshoe for free. We went and tried it and it was perfect for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

4 minutes from killington. The park is a camping park for tents or trailers. We came there to walk the white trail. Thars a parking and you need to pay before hiking. The trail starts going up the hill, not easy but doable. The forest is biutifull !! Overall it takes about 3.5 hours with kids.

We saw kent pond on the map a couple of days ago & thought it might be a nice place to stop, WOW, the sight that met our eyes was beautiful, the foliage mirrored in the still water was amazing, we stayed for a while and then took a walk beside the pond. We were so lucky to have great... More

Beautiful hike through forests up to the peak that includes a climb up a fire tower to view the surrounding mountains.

As the title says, we only took a quick drive through to see what it was like as far as sites go. Upper loop is superior with some nice sites, many of which offer a good amount of privacy. Lower loop is more congested and I would not stay in it if I had other options. Ranger station is an... More

Nice trail. We took the longer route from the campground. It was a little, well, a lot muddy and it needs some trail work, but the quick steep climbs were well worth it.

Gifford Woods is a campsite that is pet-friendly and close to everything. While dogs are not allowed in the cabins, they are allowed in your tent, camper or lean-to. As for location, it's a stone's throw away from Killington & Pico and the AT runs right through it. There's a beautiful pond across the street for kayaking, hiking and spotting... More

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
