Located in Burlington's city park. Most sites open, not secluded. Easy access to Burlington bike trails. Probably the nicest bike trails I've seen, however the locals take their biking way too seriously. It is hard to get an acknowledgement when passing the local bikers. It is as if you are trespassing on "their" trail. Through my job I travel across the country and I would have to say the people on the Burlington bike trail, at least the people I encountered, are a miserable lot (and it's not like they are these elite trail bikers). They dress the part but it ends there. So if you are into trail biking the trails and views are some of the best, the locals, not so much. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground caters to travel trailers and tent campers. While they have a few full hookup sites for larger motor homes, they really aren't appropriate. We had to use every inch of the length and we still slightly stuck out into the roadway. Sites for full hookups weren't very level. Larger units, or units over 9 feet tall had to enter the campground going the wrong way on a one-way exit lane. Very convenient to a large beach which was shared by the public, as well as a paved bike trail. I doubt we would return. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

We liked it because it was in town, on Lake Champlain (the sites were not but you could walk in two minutes). Everything clean and tidy. Everything worked, local TV reception good. Sites were not tight but you had to back in. Not bad just not all easy. We had number 1 which was by the entrance and the daily people walked by but not a real bother. Plenty of activity - kids around but not noisy or horrible. The water is beautiful and the closeness to town was great for a change. Would stay there again for sure. Money for value in the area it was great. Verizon cell coverage perfect. We don't use the Wi-Fi so can't remember but don't think they had any. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our rate was for water and 30 amp electric only (no sewer). The campground is walking distance to a lovely beach park on Lake Champlain and to the Burlington Bikeway which is part of the Champlain Bikeway. We casual bike and found it very beautiful and enjoyable. You can take a short bike path ride to the Burlington waterfront. Sites are mostly grass and have a fair amount of shade. Campground roads are terrible. Water and electric were very good. Restrooms are inadequate for the number of sites, plus cleaning them at 8AM was poor planning. We did like it here and would return. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is a real gem set on the shores of Lake Champlain. Although none of the RV sites are waterfront, the beach is a short walk from the RV park and the views are spectacular. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Great location with a beach on Lake Champlain. Camp ground is simple. Hosts were nice at check-in. Convenient to downtown. Wi-Fi works well - at least at our site which was about 100 ft from a Wi-Fi antenna on the side of a service building. Access is controlled, especially at night. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We spent 7 nights here while visiting the Burlington area. The campground has the benefit of a great location and is generally well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We did not have a full hook up site, so used the showers Unfortunately, due to the heavy use and age, the shower house was less than clean and could certainly use some updating. Our bigger concern though was the amount of noise (several nights we were kept awake by noisy campers/party's well past mid night). The space was also a big problem for us. In 7 nights there was never a time we could have used our fire pit because other units were too close. Further, the park did not seem to enforce it's one vehicle per site rule. More than once we had to park away from our site because of other cars. Because of these issues we will probably only return here if we are able to reserve a full hook-up site. They have a little more space and are away from the noisy sections of the campground. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We found this campground on an earlier biking trip and decided that we would come back. We stayed for a week. We did not have a sewered site, so brought a portable tank so we would not have to move the camper (5th wheel) around during our stay. This is a very nice city campground. It is just minutes from the waterfront city of Burlington. The park is situated ON the bikeway and just across the bikeway from North Beach on Lake Champlain. We had a very nice, large wooded site. The only thing that would have made it better: a sewer hookup. Not many sites do. The biggest drawback to this campground is that all beach traffic has to go through the middle of it. There was a lot of traffic during the hot summer week we were here, and many of the drivers were obviously intoxicated when they left at the end of the day. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a wonderful campground marred by managements restrictive, inflexible policies. Though big rig friendly there is the need for additional gravel in those designated spaces. Individual staff members are mostly very helpful and the security is good throughout the park. Grass is cut, garbage removed frequently and the park in good repair except where noted. If you are familiar with the park, attempt to select a site yourself during the reservation process. We would return. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

As someone else stated, they are kind of anal about the early check-in time. I arrived 5 minutes early and was pre-registered and did notice the individual take a look at the clock. I chuckled to myself. The park was pretty empty so it was quiet. Well kept and the people were nice (in spite of some comments I read elsewhere). I could see in the summer months it could be a "zoo" because of many sites in a relatively small area. Huge beach, biking, close to downtown...Only wish it was closer to me. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a city campground that is very popular so reservations should be made during the summer and on weekends. The cost with water and electricity was $31. The campground has pay showers, 29 full hook-ups, 39 water and electric and 69 tent sites. It opens in May and closes in October. One has to call to make reservations. This campground is in the great little town of Burlington home to the University of Vermont and 5 other colleges. As you drive down to the waterfront you see beautiful Lake Champlain. There is a bike trail that goes right by the campground to downtown Burlington where one can take a free shuttle up to Church Street Market. Church street is closed off for cars and has a very exciting mix of stores and restaurants with plenty of outdoor cafes. The bike trail goes by the waterfront and also heads up through the Lake Champagne islands to Canada. North Beach is also walking distance from the campground for sunbathing and swimming. Sites were shaded but not all were level. Check in is after 1 and they are strict about that but the host was friendly and very informative. This town has a college atmosphere and it is a wonderful place to camp and visit. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

While I think most campgrounds are over priced in this area, this one is a gem. We moved here after landing at another very rundown park, and loved our visit at North Beach. There is a beautiful beach, wonderful bike trail, and many things to do in the area. Champlain Lake is jewel. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We actually did NOT stay here. The park is very nice. We pulled in at 11:30am. The man in charge would not let us in until 1pm check in time although the park was at least 70% empty. He was very rude and abrupt and would not allow us to wait in the parking area. Check in time is not listed in park's ad in Woodall's. We deliberately travel off season and have never had a problem checking into a park reasonably early. Directions to the park are directly through the city of Burlington which would be very difficult for a big rig. Better route would be off I-89 to Lakeshore Drive and Route 127.

You'd never guess you're staying in a city park at this RV Park. It's very nice, very convenient, and very reasonably priced. The grounds are very well kept. Most sites have a beautiful view of Lake Champlain. The bike trail into town goes right by the campground with easy access. Showers are 50 cents, apparently because they are open to beach-goers as well as campers. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I'd give this an 8 or 9 except many of the full hook-up sites need minor filling/leveling and a hefty cover of gravel. Because of rain most of these sites were muddy. We had to set up on the far side from the utilities so we wouldn't be stepping out into water or mud, so we were fairly close to the Class A next door. Other than that we really liked this park and would definitely stay here again. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our take on this park was about the same as the last reviewer. Fortunately, school was not in session during our stay. The host changed us to a 50 amp site upon arrival because the 30 amp site was not large enough for our motorhome. The site was at the left front section of the park, and we had to tolerate a lot of dirt flying from the road as people drove in and out. The Wi-Fi site appeared on our computers, but we were not able to access it during our stay. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.
