We are nearing the end of a 90-day cross-country trip and can safely say that our stay here was the worst of the trip. Of almost any trip, for that matter. Terribly overcrowded--the "sites" weren't even that, really. Just power poles in grass with no attempt to trim trees. We had folks cutting through our "site" nonstop. Noise, smoke, and bug levels off the chart. Not made for anything but tenters, in my opinion. (And having to drive through the exit because campers don't fit through the entrance is a very big confirmation of this point.) We were lucky to get out of there with only minor tree branch scrapes and not be stuck in the mud of our "site." Cannot figure out what in the heck the $41 fee is for. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are traveling in or towing a vehicle over 11' feet beware. You will not be able to enter the park through the main entrance. You will be directed to enter through a gate that says Do Not Enter. After registering and entering the campground we found our site. The site we were in was very tight for a 40' RV. The roads are all gravel/dirt. It rained the whole day we were there and the roads became a little muddy. If we ever come back this way we will not stay in this park. It is to pricey. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very family friendly campground. The only reason I didn't give it the full 5 stars is that the showers did not have any hot water. It was a chilly night, so my husband was quite surprised when he jumped in to a frosty shower. He described it as a half degree above sleet. ???? Otherwise, this is really a nice place to camp, and I would definitely visit there again. I'd just plan to shower inside my camper if I were you. We didn't have a chance to stay long, but the campground is right near Lake Champlain and has a nice beach and bike trails. The Wi-Fi was average, but we were just happy to have it. Our site was on grass, and we had to level our camper, but that's something we have to do at most places, so it wasn't a problem. Would love to visit this place again, as it seems the town is very nice. We had pizza delivered to the front gate, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

North Beach Campground was a nice location to enjoy what Burlington, Vermont had to offer. Getting there was a challenge because the roads are very narrow and our Garmin had us taking roads with speed bumps. Once we arrived we realized the site we booked online was going to be challenge to park in. Site 16 is in the back, which judging by the online map and inputting our RV size into the online reservation program, should have been no problem. After about 45 minutes of trying to line up in the site, we felt once we disconnected our fifth wheel we might not get hooked back up. The site is way too small for a 35' fifth wheel. I went to the office to let them know about the issue and fortunately they had a cancellation and put us in a much bigger site. We were able to get in no problem but had a adjust a bit in order to get our hookups made while getting the slides open.

Once completed, we enjoyed the city of Burlington. The park is a part of the beach so about a minute walk to the sand. Even with all the traffic going to the beach, the park was still relatively quiet. If we return to Burlington we would consider staying again. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful location right on the bike path which goes along Lake Champlain. Love walking it with my dog Lucky. Campground connects to the beach which is clean and surrounded by mountains just stunning! Admission to the beach is free for campers and a very short walk. Bath houses as is the park have been around since the 70's so older yet very clean oh and they have a dish washing area too. Staff was super nice, even helped park our new camper ???? some of the sites are uneven so have your leveling blocks, not a biggie. We plan to make that 10 hour trip again next year, so much to do if you choose or you can just kick back and relax! We camped at North Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bike Path, North Beach Park, The Waterfront, Battery Park and food bus Beansies which is parked there. The Farmers Market in town was great on Sat morning lots of goodies there! North Beach Campground is working on their new website, should be done soon.

The water pressure in the shower was okay, but you have to spend $1.00 for a shower because the time on the meter is so short. 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.

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 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.

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.
