We stayed with a group of campers 3 nights. We had a great time and when we did not care for out site the owner took every measure to move us. They were very nice and the bathrooms are exceptionally clean. We would stay again. The office sells Maple Syrup as well which is an added plus. There are also great hiking trails nearby. Prices are reasonable. If possible try and get a river site or pull through.

My husband and I stayed in our 29' travel trailer with slide-out Friday through Tuesday in Site 52. This is a roomy site right on the river - it was great! Plenty of room to relax and not even close to the neighbor's sewer hook-up, as sometimes happens. We very much enjoyed the view of the river and the mountains. Free cable with about 52 channels, and free WiFi. We had a nice new wooden picnic table and a good-size fire ring with a grate. They have a nice playground area for kids (or adults), a pool (closed for the season), a pavilion, and walking trails. There weren't any activities this weekend, but it looks like they have a lot to do during the summer months.We came to Vermont to do some leaf peeping and to visit some fun spots, and this was a good central location for our travels. We would highly recommend this campground and hope to visit again.

Stayed here for a weekend getaway. You really get away as it is remote. But that means it’s quiet and clean. Staff is very nice. Cheap firewood, good WiFi and electric. Fun activities are available, you have to inquire about times or you might miss it.

Nice and quiet, nice owners, easy check in. Everything about Able Mountain is nice. We totally enjoyed sitting out enjoying the views, the great weather and the peace and quiet. The pool was nice and we were able to enjoy some refreshing swimming time. With the fire pit close to the river was nice and we were able to enjoy some nice fires. Places that are always quiet quickly become our favorites.

I was first impressed when we showed up a day late, but didn't get charged for the day we missed. This was very generous. Our site was clean and well maintained, nice and level. Strong wifi signal, but only 3 devices are included. Tough with four people, but you can buy more pass codes. The picnic table was brand new. The whole place seems well maintained, unlike so many campgrounds. The vibe is very relaxed and quiet, not even highway noise.

My husband and I are seniors and spent 3 nights, Tuesday to Friday in June on site 51. Abel Mtn. Campground was easy enough to find. We have a 21' travel trailer and took advantage of the full hookups that most of the sites provide, including our first time using cable TV. As everyone else who reviews this place said, the owners are the first pleasure you find there. There's a heated pool, strong WiFi at your site, tons of river sites, immaculate rest rooms with an accessible ramp and lots of showers. They recycle everything possible and even provide composting of plant based waste. We have rarely found a returnable bottles and cans container so finding that and even composting is a notch well above the competition. Being the middle of June, there were no kids around but the photos and the two playgrounds tell us kids must love the place. Sites are back-in and very level on gravel pads. We highly recommend the place. Oh and a word of warning, you will hear a train go by somewhere and the whistle will wake you up but no worries, it's all part of the ambiance.

Awesome campground with wonderful staff! Sylvia was warm and inviting when I stepped into the office. They had a community fire burning and we hung out and got to warm up in front of it. Also, the shower/bath room was immaculately clean and the water was HOT! I would definitely recommend this campground!

We just got home from a great weekend and also enjoyed a real nice weekend in Sept. the owners here are very nice and they treat their customers well. Making a reservation is as easy as sending an email and they email you back with a list of available sites, so easy. We were along the river which was very low but still pleasant to sit by it and relax to the sounds. The campground is always neat and clean. We were able to enjoy this campground 3 times which gives us time to visit with our son and future DIL. Sites are mostly open but are very good size so you have plenty of room. We will return.

Set in a valley, surrounded by trees, this is as someone described it, "a Gem". Staff are friendly, fast, professional. Very clean, neat grassy sites; wide with full hook-ups. Spaces are grass, level and clean. Roads are a little rough but that holds down dust and speed. We'd stay here again without hesitation.

Truly a hidden gem for people to discover. The campground is impeccably kept, the grounds were spotless and well manicured and bathrooms some of the cleanest you will find camping and free showers as well. Lets start with the sites, most are open so if you desire to be deep in the woods and more secluded this may not be the place for you, but I will say with them being open sites mostly they are very spacious and the amount of grass in the sites is truly a joy, one of the few sites camping you can walk around barefoot and not track a bunch of sand and junk back into your camper! The campground has an ample amount of sites that all back up to the river and the collection of sites down towards the back of the campground have much more trees if you are seeking shade. The pool was more than large enough and crystal clear with plenty of pool chairs for all to enjoy. The river is the thing that makes the campground fun for all ages....bring your tubes or you can rent them cheap enough at the camp store, although a bit shallow when we visited I was able to tube with only having to get up a few times because it was too shallow but the kids almost never had to, not a super long ride but from one end of the campground to the other is just long enough to lazily cruise with a couple of small points where the current picks up to have some fun too! The river water was so clear you could see bottom even at the deepest points! There were only a few activities for the kids but the ones they do have are free, our kids made tie die t-shirts while there and to our amazement it was a free activity and they provided the shirts! Why you ask, because the seasonal campers and weekend campers put their bottle returns in a separate bin so the campground can make money to pay for the activities and provide it to the campers for free which in this day an age almost nothing is ever free so that was a real treat! The band they had Saturday night called club soda was very good and although we did not go dance we enjoyed the music by the fire while having smores with our kids but the turnout from the campground that did go fully enjoy the band was amazing to see! Thank you for an amazing weekend and we will surely be back again someday in the future.
