Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $18.00
This is a no-hookup park. The sites along Spectacle Pond were close, accessed by a steep one lane road. Sites were shaded, and some had direct access to the pond for kayaks and canoes. We would stay here again. We camped at Brighton State Park in a Motorhome.
This is a no hook-up state park in NE Vermont. We had site #57 which was large enough for our 30 ft class A but with a downhill entrance and not level at the bottom of the site. Some sites were more level, many had uphill approaches. There is private land to one side but the next campsite is quite close. We pulled straight in to get a very nice view of Spectacle Pond. There is a small, rough path beaten through the bushes to give you a tiny bit of water access from the site. The mosquitos were ferocious. The roads into the camping loops were dirt, quite narrow and rutted in spots. Trees branches encroached onto the road especially after two days of constant rain but the branches that hit the RV were pretty pliable. The park also has lean-to's and cabins. Bathhouses are not heated but you can get a 5 minute shower for a quarter (advertised as hot). The little town of Island Pond is small but nice and has a decent grocery. We also drove the moose loop (105/114/102) early one morning; we only saw one small moose but is was a beautiful drive. It's hard to be completely objective about a campground when the weather is completely lousy but this campground is not particularly well suited for even small class A motorhomes. We camped at Brighton State Park in a Motorhome.
This is a nice state park. We only spent the night but the employees were very nice and helpful. There is a small lake with a campers beach with fishing. There is also a dump station. We camped at Brighton State Park in a Motorhome.
