14 Parks near Bennington, Vermont
Oct 2016 - $38.00
We camped here in a 36' 5th wheel w/3 slides and a F-350 DRW truck. Credit cards are not accepted; we mailed a check when we made our reservation. This campground is a real gem for location and scenery - surrounded by woods; we were here in early Oct. so the leaves were at their peak; there are hiking trails close by. There are plenty of grassy areas around the campground. Our site (#40-E) was a wide, gravel back-in with water and 50 amp electric and a large grassy area outside. There was good reception on our roof-mounted DirecTV satellite; over-the-air antenna worked well. Verizon cell phone worked well but we had no Verizon WiFi and were not able to connect to campground WiFi. A lot of the sites are heavily wooded so specify if you want an open site. There are no laundry facilities but there is a nice laundromat in Bennington, about 9 miles away. There are no sewer connections in the campground; there is a dump station and you can borrow a portable tank if you need to dump tanks during your stay. Owners are very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. - Moneypenny

Beautiful park. Wonderful couple who own the campground and their adult son who maintains the facility. Two gorgeous ponds, hiking trails, and really nice isolated campsites for tents and small trailers. Our 40foot fifth wheel fit nicely into a pull-thru. 30 and 50 amp service with water and Wi-Fi. We stayed 7 days. There was no sewer at the site, but a easy-to-get-to dump station on the way out. Far enough away from the highway, so the nights were quiet. Hardly any lights for miles around made watching the nite-time stars amazing. We were here just as the trees were changing colours; it was fantastic. One word of caution, GPS will try to have you enter on a back road; don't use it if you have a big rig. Instead go back about 1/4 mile towards Bennington and there is a large parking lot for the Ski Access to Prospect Skiing. Enter thru that parking lot and follow the signs to the left for the campground. Highly recommend this place. Close to Bennington and other interesting things to visit and see. - dave398rls

Gorgeous campground with trails and two ponds next door to a ski hill. We were in a 40' pusher and it was a bit tight. Trailers or smaller rigs have some choice locations to spend the time here. No dump at sites but they have a main dump site next to the lodge. Comfortable lodge with game/TV room, laundry and reading. Grounds are well kept and the mgt was extremely helpful and friendly. One note, it is just off a long steep grade coming from the west and the trucks tend to rattle the jakes on the downhill slide. - bruisa

This campground is tucked away from the main highway (Hwy. 9) about 10 miles south of Bennington. It's on the small size of campgrounds, but nicely laid out around a pond with a center water spout. If you are looking for peace and quiet...this is it. Camped here in a 42 ft. class A. Sites 6,7,8 & 9 are really the only ones that could accomodate a class A. Sites are level, packed gravel. Utilities are good except the wifi is a little sketchy from time to time. If you have satellite tv, sites 6-9 are best for receiving reception, as the remainder of the campground is fairly shady. - Smooth Running

This is a very nice family run park. It is small and very quiet. Sites are level. Utillities worked well, WIFI was very good. They have a pond in the center of the campground with a fountain in it. The sites are open (without trees) to get into, but plenty of shade all around. Probably the only issue I could see was the sewer is not a threaded hookup and both our site and the one next to us had toilet paper on the ground where people must've not had their hose weighted down. Other sites had threaded hookups. We stayed here 2 nights and would definitely stay here again if in the area. - jacknpeg

Privately owned, husband & wife team. Pleasant and thoughtful of campers. Well mowed grassy areas with shade at most campsites. 5oA or 30A sites with water and sewer available. Graveled roadways and camp site parking. Beautiful forest all around the campground. We are only here for 2 nights, wish we were staying longer. - Toby's dad

We stayed here for the first time this fall and loved it. Woodford is a clean, high elevation state park campground in the Green Mountain National Forest. Many prime sites have lakeside views. We enjoyed some time paddling on the lake. Canoe, rowboat and paddleboat rentals are offered. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's a very quiet campground at night. Contact the staff ahead of time to reserve a site suitable for your equipment. Some will be difficult to back in unless driving the wrong way on a one-way loop but that's OK. The restrooms are cleaner than most state parks as the staff have recently sanded/refinished the walls and wood interiors. We will definitely return to this state park next year! - TJflyer

This State Park is a well treed park at a higher elevation. It is worth inspecting the sites to be sure you can get a larger unit into the loop. No services are available. They offer lean-to shelters for those who want the out door experience. This is a nice quiet park and we would return if in the area. - lrp374

Quiet and clean. Bath house needs updating but clean ($0.50 shower), we have a 32' 5th wheel and it was tight. Great hiking near-by and spacious sites. - cbshea02

This place was the worst place we have ever stayed at. Still loaded with potholes, site not level, & some of the permanent season sites were nice but then again some needed serious improvement. Got sewer but when dumping - it flowed out on the ground. Thinking it was just a shallow hole in the ground & not a proper sewage disposal. Nasty!!
The only good thing we can say is there is a creek within walking distance so we took our wine/beer there to unwind. The trailer with leanto next to us was not something we cared to observe.
Read the reviews, wouldn't recommend, & would rather park at Walmart without amenities. - gwchoice

Where do I start. I always avoid staying in parks that haven't been reviewed within a year of our visit. Made an exception because we really needed someplace to stay on our way through area. I looked for the improvements mentioned in the last post but I can't find them. Called in advance for reservation and was told it was off season so rate would be 30.00. Gentleman who checked us in couldn't use credit card machine so I wrote a check. We requested a pull through with full hookup. We got water and electric. Good news site was relatively level. Also told the restroom/showers were closed because they just painted the floors. I can't begin to describe the permanent trailer and lean-to next door and I certainly can't write how my husband described it. My suggestion would be to find a WalMart to stay in. - beach walker

We had read previous reviews about this campground and were apprehensive of what we would find and were pleasantly surprised. The manager was "johnny on the spot" and attended our every need. Many improvements have been made to the park and are continuing. The restrooms and showers are older than some but very clean and well maintained. The river that runs past the park was beautiful and good fishing. The "seasonal" campers were friendly and helpful. We stayed here with two basset hounds for a week. - jmjack

Nice little state park in northwest Massachusetts. Like other Massachusetts state parks there are no hookups at the campsites, but I was surprised to find that there is no dump station at the park. I was informed that, if needed, I could utilize the dump station at Savoy Mountain State Forest about 10 miles west off of Route 2 with a valid hang tag from Clarksburg.
We booked late for Memorial Day weekend, and Site 31 was the only one that would fit our trailer. It might have worked better for a little pop-up, but we had a tough time getting our 21' trailer in the 23' max spot. The level pad area and driveway were angled the opposite direction you would want for the approach from the one-way traffic loop. Walking the campgrounds, most of the sites had better approaches, and I figured out why #31 was the last one available.
Nice hiking trails through the woods and over many wet and marshy lands. Good views of the pond along the way. Paved loops connect the camping sites and it is a quick walk around to do the figure-8 loop. Not worth bringing bikes for this campsite, unless you want to ride that figure-8 loop a bunch of times. - malsbury

Big sites, quiet and friendly. Nice pond in Berkshires.
Will return! - User2912

This is a very nice little park in the Northwest corner of Massachusetts. Very friendly staff, always looking to help out any way they can. It rained most of the time we were there, but the site drained extremely well and we were comfortable the whole weekend. The surrounding area is very interesting with plenty to do and see. The only gripe I have about the park is the showers. They're hard to use with the push buttons which give you a few seconds of water at a time. There's no place to sit to get undressed and no place to hang clothes to keep them dry. We'd definitely come back here for another weekend. - 2beagles

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. - Byron Bailey

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. - 21fbrs

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. - Mark's Motors

Was here for a T@B rally 9/24-27. Campground run by city of N. Adams. Some sites power was at a distance and needed a long cord to plug in. Site 1&2 are small tent sites @$25 a night. Other sites $35-40. Campground host was very friendly. - Trub

This park is long in the tooth and in need of a serious upgrade. At my first assigned site, I couldn't find the electrical outlet. Finally, it showed up, about 75 feet from my site. Electrical panels were shared by two sites, so only one got 30 amp service and the other 20 amp. Sites consisted of white coarse sand and gravel that stuck to everything. To get into the park after 4:30 pm, you had to put down a deposit for a tab to get in, even though the entrance gate had the capability of accepting keyed in numbers. Finally, using a credit card involved a $2.50 fee for the privilege. The campground is on the side of a steep hill (like much of the area). Staff was nice and helpful, but nothing can overcome the deep need for an overhaul. If there were no other campground in the area, we'd stay here again, otherwise probably not. - Jay Rutherford

Town-owned campground and nearby lake are most acceptable, terrific pavilion, fishing and non-motorized boating, right in historic North Adams. Do not let your GPS take you up Mt Everest approach. Come in Route 2 to East Main St and left onto Kemp. Very friendly staff, good security. Can get very busy, suggest reservations. Appalachian Trail and other hiking nearby. Close to beautiful Williamstown and terrific art galleries. Our rate was with a rally. Temporary power problem required some caution: should be fixed soon. We would stay again. - Wheelbarrows

Well-kept campground with kind of rough gravel roads and large grassy areas. Our site on top of the hill was fairly level and was the only one in the row with sewer. Water pressure was extremely low, wifi was good, Verizon signal was spotty and just barely usable for calls, not for data. - jbrucemagon

This park is made up mostly of seasonal residents who make up about 80% of the sites. Even though we were located at the entrance, next to a main county road, it was quiet and the noise was minimal. We had full hookups, including sewer, but the electric service had serious problems. With 30 amp service we were only able to pull 14 amps without tripping our surge protector because of inadequate voltage. The voltage dropped to less than 104 volts anytime we tried to use an air conditioner. The internal roads are washed out with many potholes. We didn't have to navigate them because of our proximity to the main entrance. It's unlikely we would stay here again. - Rob&Terri

Amazing little state park with a great staff and easy access to the Harriman Reservoir. We booked site #12. When the ranger that checked us in saw our 21' travel trailer he mentioned we might have a some difficulty backing into the site. He said if that was the case, just come back up to the station and he would move us to one of the larger sites at the front of the park.
With a couple of tries, and folded in mirrors, we were able to get into the site. The site was nice and level, with shade throughout the day. We hiked the Olga Trail up to the fire watch tower which was a nice 1-1/2 hour walk after dinner our first night. The majority of our time in the area was spent at the Harriman Reservoir, located just a few miles west of the park.
There is a single dump station by the central bathhouse, with separate spigots for potable and flush water. However, the campsite is small enough that we have not experienced a wait to fill or dump our tanks.
The bath house at this end of the park is at most a year or two old. Showers work great, and give you a reasonable amount of preset temperature water for each button press. - malsbury

We have camped here in a pop up for the last three years. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice quiet campground with clean restrooms. Small nature center and nice moderate hiking trail. - popupper

Beautiful park with gigantic, clean lake, waaaaaaaay off the main roads. Unfortunately they sent my 35 foot motorhome into a loop with spaces for 20 foot campers and the only way I could get out was to sacrifice my awning to an overhanging tree. If you go here plan to spend too much money for no amenities. All of the workers were very friendly but had no clue as to what a motorhome needs or what their campsites offer. Also be aware that "Golden Access" discounts refers to the NEW YORK State Golden Access card, not the Federal Golden Access Card. - FiatSpider79
