This is a very pleasant campground located 6 miles from L. L. Bean's original store. The state roads leading to the campground from the interstate are not in good repair so care must be taken when driving. The campground itself has gravel roads which are in good repair. Originally I had a site in the woods which I didn't care for so the staff accommodated me by finding an open pull-through site with full hook-up. The site was clean and level. It was very quiet but quite cold for July. The friendly staff made me feel right at home. We enjoyed a very pleasant stay with wonderful neighbors. I would definitely stay here again

It tells you how bad this campground is when I paid for 5 nights and left after 4. I knew I made a mistake as soon as I turned off the highway and drove into the campground. Potholes everywhere in the dirt road. Junk campers full of trash and shacks that were once cottages line the road. We had a back-in site next to a seasonal that had insulation board covering all the windows. Behind us was a camper with flat tires full of old mattresses and other junk. Our water supply was in a pit full of vegetation with the nozzle barely above ground. I was told this was a winterized site. My cable box was smashed so we had to use a splitter and get a signal from my seasonal neighbor. Sewer opening was marked with an inverted soda bottle. I never felt comfortable there. I never put my awning out or my patio carpet. Dogs everywhere barking and snarling. I wanted to visit Shelburne Museum and Shelburne Farms but the points of interest rated highly by Woodall's were too far north to suit me. Mega mistake! Shelburne Camping is rated a 2 out of 3 by AAA but it is definitely over-rated. Shelburne is a beautiful area but this campground is a blight on the community. I rented a car from the local Enterprise site. Another disaster! I would visit Shelburne again but I would definitely not stay at this campground.

Very friendly staff. Easily accessible from the highway over a gravel road. Close to the I-87 . The entire campground is gravel with plenty of loose rocks available to support your sewer hose. We were there during the week and found it very quiet. A few kids on those low trikes flying around but not a problem. There was plenty of poison ivy in the area so when we went walking we stayed on the trails. Lots of mosquitos despite our fire. Fire rings are made out of stone. My site was level but required a back-in. Pull-through sites did not come with sewer hook-up. Close to Woodstock which is a very nice little town to poke around in. I would definitely stay there again.
