We made last-minute reservations at this park, so we had a spot in the open field, which wasn't much to look at, but we had it almost to ourselves. The sites on the river were beautiful, however. Our family had fun wading in the river. The bathrooms and showers needed a good cleaning, esp of spiders. Even our teenage boys didn't want to go in! The staff was very friendly, and this campground was a good value for the area, which tends to be more expensive. We would go back to this park. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Fifth Wheel.

Bennington Monument is a short drive away and quite interesting. We drove the 1.5 hours south to the Norman Rockwell Museum, which was wonderful. But just as wonderful was the Sugar Shack, just a block away from the campground, where you can taste maple syrup and other treats, and walk through their own Norman Rockwell Museum, where they feature stories and paintings of the locals who were the models in Rockwell's works. We had a great time!

My husband and I camped here for our anniversary weekend. What a wonderful campground. We had a site on the Battenkill River which was beautiful. We could hear the river running day and night. We took several walks around camp and found very friendly outgoing seasonal campers that were willing to answer all our questions about the area. The owners are lovely people who have done a great job since taking over in February. Our site was very spacious and FLAT! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Lots to do in Bennington and Manchester, wish we had stayed longer. Nice quiet campground. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was extremely quiet at night, just the way we like them. No road noise, no airports, no Interstate highways close by. We had a choice and picked a very wooded site which we liked. Unfortunately our second day was nothing but steady rain, which caused us to spend more time in the campground than we normally do, but there were no negatives to report on. They do have good WiFi, but make sure you get the code from the office because it won't work without it. We received only 4 PBS channels via our antenna, but we weren't here to sit and watch the tube. If in the area, we would stay here again. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Travel Trailer.

New owners this season. Service level very high - they stay open until 8:30 for late check-ins, and were open in late April, while many other NH campgrounds don't open until May, sometimes late May. Very friendly. Sites are separated and the campground is lightly wooded, enough to give a sense of privacy without feeling closed in. Roads are hard-packed gravel. Sites are dirt and might be muddy in wet weather. Bathrooms are rustic but very clean and well-maintained. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Motorhome.

We have camped here on several occasions and always enjoy our stay. The dog park is a large fenced in area so the dogs get plenty of room to run. You are close to both Manchester and Bennington VT, The park itself is quaint and friendly. The access roads could use some attention as there are several potholes and low hanging limbs. You need to pay attention for sure. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park location has great potential, but significant infrastructure improvements would be necessary (sites leveling and surfacing, access road leveling, expansion of the sewer connection system, lots of tree trimming, etc.) to bring it into the modern RVing world. The first thing you notice, when you pull into the campground, is a big sign saying that the campground is for sale. Maybe someone will purchase and improve it. Our site was one of the few sites with full hookups. All of the full hookup sites are in the woods where satellite reception is not possible. They have some open field sites, for satellite access, but these sites do not have sewer hookups. Our site was not level (front to back). It was a gravel back-in site with just enough depth to fit our 43' fifth wheel. The access roads were gravel with quite a few potholes. The hookups were good and our site had a fire ring and picnic table. WiFi was actually pretty good, but it wasn't free, so we did not use it. There was full recycling on site. I would not label this as a big rig friendly RV park. In its present state, I sincerely doubt that we would visit here again. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Fifth Wheel.

This could be a nice park but it would take a lot of work. At check-in the young man didn't know how much to charge and seemed to be unsure if there was a site available. After giving us a site number we drove to it and noticed the park looked to be three quarters empty. Don't understand the confusion. Sites are good size and wooded but all sand and mud. As this was just for a one night stay we could make do. The restrooms were the worst we have encountered. Dirt and dead bugs on the floor and showers, cobwebs and dust buildup everywhere. Old thin curtains on the shower and stalls. We would not camp here again. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Travel Trailer.

Great clean, quiet campground right on the Battenkill river. One of our favorites for rest and relaxation that is located in southern VT. Storm Irene nearly wiped it out but they have rebuilt almost completely. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Motorhome.

Nice clean park. Quiet. Wooded with a river, so bug spray being required should be obvious. Staff was friendly. Easy to maneuver around sites. No pool, or other activities were noted. Playground was an old swing. If bringing children, they may be on the bored side. I would return, but only as a layover while traveling. This is only because my kids would drive me nuts there over a weekend without much for them to do. Without kids, you will find it quiet relaxing and a pretty park.

Site was very small, and it was hard to park because of the trees. If wi-fi or cable were available, we weren't told. Office was closed when I tried to call for information. We were only given 20 amps. Kept tripping it. Bathrooms have curtains instead of doors on stalls. Very embarrassing. Serious dis-repair in showers. Mirrors almost black. A great shame for a place in such a beautiful area. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay here. The website was very helpful in choosing a site. The sites are well laid out and roomy. We stayed on site 12b which is a pull-through site with full hook-ups. There are a few very nice W/E sites right on the river. The restrooms were clean, but lacked hand soap. Also, the toilet stalls had a curtain rather than a door for privacy. My son was a little disappointed that their ice cream cooler was empty, and they didn't have any candy, probably due to the season hadn't opened as we were there before Memorial Day Weekend. We would recommend Camping On the Battenkill to anyone looking for a nice peaceful campground. It is everything the website claims and more !

A very tranquil setting in the picturesque Green Mountains. Excellent cycling from the campground. Easy access to surrounding areas and two covered bridges within a 5 mile radius. Seasonal campers are weekend warriors with nice clean rigs and sites. Park would receive a 9 but their pricing structure is aggressive with up charges for almost everything on your rig, +3 for AC for example. Strong Verizon signal. Only downside is the weekend tent campers turn the place into a smokehouse with all the camp fires. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Fifth Wheel.

Spent two days here. It was more like a state park setting than a private park. Lots of trees, huge lots, even though there were a lot of families, the kids were very well behaved. It was a great place to base from to see the area which is beautiful. The owners were outstanding. My wife is a quilter and asked about quilting shops and she put her in touch with a lady who lives here in the park for the summer who quilts. Needless to say my wife was happy and when she is happy I am happy. I highly recommend this place. Obtw, fishing is good on the Battenkill.

This is the prettiest setting we have found, the sites are well spaced apart. The rest rooms are old but fairly well maintained - could use some paint this off season. Nicely located to tour attractions in Southern VT. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Travel Trailer.
