Vermont is beautiful and this campground setting is beautiful also. It's an old campground and seems rundown. The swimming lake/pond is really bad... dirty and really sharp rocks. Not sure how kids could possibly go down a slide and land safely. We were there when the swimming pond was not open yet. They also have an above ground pool (also not open yet). We tried to do laundry but the washing machines were filthy so we took our laundry into a nearby town. The couple who own/run the campground were friendly. The roads were easy to navigate. There is some road noise but not bad at all. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I would give them a 10 if they had 50A and pavement/concrete at all sites. Nice, easy access location, grass site was level, good spacing between sites. Doughboy pool was clean, as was the game room and shower/baths. Playground for kids, friendly staff. They also have a swimming pond on site. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground just off the interstate. Easy in and out. Few 50 amp sites but 30 amp was working well. Most full hook-ups. Ample space between. Friendly staff and beautiful part of the country. One hour northwest is the town of Barre. Quaint friendly town with granite quarry you can tour called Rock of Ages. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

Very easy access right off the highway. A good bit of space between campers - which is nice. Staff was very friendly. Even though the buildings are older they are very well maintained and exceptionally clean. Game room has pool table, arcade games and plenty of board games to borrow. Above ground pool and nice/clean playgrounds. Laundry room was very clean and reasonably priced. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed on Forth of July weekend. The facilities are dated. A very dated above ground pool that got crowded. The sandbox on the playground was hard clay with pine needles. My six year-old got scrapped-up at the bottom of the metal slide that shoots kids down onto hard ground with rocks. The plastic slide is splitting apart and really shouldn't be used.

The slide in the pond should be power washed and the platform to get on the stairs is clearly floating around the pond unattached.

We found the owners unfriendly and they certainly nickle and dime you. I asked my brother-in law to bring down my popup from my in-laws and park it at the site, because I was leaving CT at 5 p.m. He then had to get his travel trailer and set that up. They charged $3 an hour before noon that the popup was sitting on the site. They also wouldn't run our credit card over the phone.

The owners seemed to be entertaining their friends at the office much of the weekend and seemed to think they were being bothered if a paying customer walked by.

Our stretch of the campground was awfully crowded. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Overall this is a good campground. It is located not far off the interstate, which makes it good for visiting sites or running errands, though you do have to drive a little ways for services. There are enough trees that there isn't a lot of highway noise and most sites are reasonably well shaded. Plenty of room to get in and out of sites and navigate the roads of the campground. Everything was well maintained. AT&T cell service was weak and wifi wasn't great, especially over the weekend when there were lots of campers. We were supposed to have 30 amps, but I don't think we were actually getting more than 20. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice comfortable campground.Stayed with a group of other campers and they put us on sites 1-8. Sites were mostly open and sunny and a fair size. There was also a sewer hook up on those sites.I believe there was a game room,swimming pool and the office with some supplies but I did not use any of them. Campground was just large enough to take my dog for a walk but the dog was not allowed to go swimming in their pond.I would consider camping here again. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Monthly customer here. Owners are annoyingly strict about 5 mph speed limit (my car goes faster than that in drive), wifi does not work at all anywhere (many seasonal sites have to have their own internet service brought to their site), no cable, owners' friends seem to be exempt from rules. Laundry room is clean. Above ground pool has basically no deck. Two little patios away from the pool that you can sit on, but no pool side lounging. Pond with water slide looks to have milfoil in it - disgusting looking anyways. Pine trees everywhere so pitch ruins cars/campers. No sense of community between campers, and hardly any entertainment or campground wide activities. Would not stay here ever again. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was an OK park. We were assigned a site with the other non-seasonals which was fine. Because it wasn't too full, they gave us one site, but when we got there we asked for one across the "street" and they were fine with us moving. Good water pressure, good electric, and we got satellite (reason we moved along with a more sunny spot). Easy in and out. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects GS discount. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The campground has grass/gravel sites but they were level. We did not have a problem getting on our site but when we were ready to leave, more units had come in and we had to ask 2 sites to move their tows so we could get out. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our second summer to spend at this campground. We are full-timers and have stayed in many different campgrounds over the last 6 1/2 years. This campground is truly a gem, as another reviewer stated. The owners here are super nice people who take pride in their campground, which is also their home. They work very hard to keep the restrooms, etc. clean and the grounds tidy. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone for any length of visit to the area. Daily rate based on monthly rate. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

In the middle of nowhere is this small gem. Very helpful people at the office. A bit of a hill down to the pull-throughs, but lovely sites. Area is beautiful, we were there to visit Quechee Gorge. When there eat at Stellas in Lyme for fantastic sit down meal or Wicked Awesome Barbeque in Thetford for yummy take out. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Decent campground but over Labor Day it was a bit crowded. (Obviously to be expected) not as pretty a place as we were hoping in that location, and then due to family medical emergency, we were forced to leave 4 days early. No offer of any refund!! I didn't ask for one but gave them the chance to do the right thing. Because of this we will not return. We camped at Rest N' Nest Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campground sites are grass and gravel, mostly level, some sites do need leveling. Ours was a pull through and did not need leveling. Well wooded sites. Roads are gravel, but in good shape. Campground is well maintained. Did not use the bathhouse and did not look. Wi-Fi worked well and is free. Owners require proof of Good Sam membership for discount. We would stay again.
