Maplewoods CG has a great view of the mountains! I was parked in the second row, so I can't speak for those further back. This was the most expensive campground I stayed in for this years travels and was quite surprised when I read the paperwork after checking in stating if you use your AC or a space heater there will be an additional charge of $3.00 a day. Also, they wanted to charge for the WIFI that doesn't reach any distance. There are two bathhouses with flush toilets, but the showers are coin operated. There is a laundry facility as well, I didn't use it so I can't tell you how much it cost. There is NO privacy what so ever in the CG, but the seasonal campers seemed nice enough. The CG is very conveniently located for all of the "tourist" spots, Stowe, Smugglers Notch, etc... and only an hour away from Burlington. A plus for me was being able to have packages shipped to their address! - NanetteLkc

Our site had insufficient electrical power to run both of our air conditioners at most times. At all times we had to watch what electrical items were simultaneously turned "on". Nice spacing (wider than a typical commercial campground); and no visual privacy between sites. In general, the view from the campground is pretty (i.e., hay field and mountains in the distance). A small number of sites have that view. Roads and sites are packed dirt with some gravel. There was often a lot of dust in the air. The campground was typically quiet. We had numerous undesirable surprises upon our arrival - they tried to charge us a higher site cost, beyond what they quoted us for our specific site. We learned about surcharges (e.g., $3 daily charge to use AC or heat) and they not only charge for their wifi, but it is only available within 300 feet of their office building. Our bill was incorrect and it took MANY conversations for them to realize they made an error (i.e., on our bill, they applied the 6% sales tax to the site rate and then additionally applied the 6% sales tax again to the total bill). None of the information that surprised us was available on their website; shared verbally (even when relevant questions were asked, such as confirming that electric usage was included in the site cost); nor was the information included when they sent us our reservation confirmation. Note: Our Verizon and AT&T data and cell coverage was weak at times and sometimes non-existent. AT&T's data coverage was typically a little better, when Verizon's coverage was weak or non-existent. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

This campground is sitting on top of the hill overlooking the mountains! It's a very clean and quiet campground! They have an in-ground pool, playroom next to the pool, and a playground for kids! It's one of my favorite campgrounds, hands down! The owners are very nice and very accommodating. They put on horseshoe tournaments and bean bag tournaments, race pools, DJ at the pool on certain weekends and they also have weekends where people bring a dish to share together. Their store is fun to shop in and they have great ice cream! They have been building a pavilion building and they have expanded the park with more sites. Their sites are all great and the sizes are big too! - Debbie_mimi

Smugglers Notch State Park, Stowe, Vermont September 15 & 16 $20 no hookups. This campground was moved in 2003 from across the street so the bathrooms are new and very clean but only one shower (pay). There is only about 19 sites but only about 6 or 7 that RV’s can fit into and it is on a mountain but you can get level. One would suggest reservations if you are headed this way but during the week in the Fall you may get a site. The sites are a good size but some are hard to back up into. It is near Mt. Mansfield ski area and the Stowe Lodge Resort. There are hiking trails from the campground and it is an easy drive to the quaint village of Stowe for shopping , restaurants and a bike trail. This is a four season resort area with plenty to do in every season. It is considered the best ski resort in the state. Very pretty area and we would definitely return. RV’s should know that they can only drive up to the Gondola section of the resort because they have to turn around since they are not allowed to drive the five miles over the mountain to the Smugglers Notch Ski area so must use route 100 and drive around about 30 miles. If one is going to try the bike trail there is parking at the church to the right to get on the trail but not parking in the rest of the town. This is a wonderful area to camp in but if your RV is over 28 to 30 feet I don’t know if I would come up here but we did see some big campers on route 100. - gsnakehill

We stayed 14 days at Mountain View in a 40' RV. This is an incredibly beautiful park. The campground is nestled in a valley in the Green Mountains and is flanked by the Lamoille River. The grounds are almost park like and are in incredible condition. There are lots of native wildflowers that are evident in every nook and cranny. The new owners have done an incredible job of getting the park in excellent condition and are a true pleasure to deal with. The park is easy to navigate and the sites are nice and wide and grass covered so no dust or mud. Our dogs loved the river which was wadable and the bottom covered with beautiful river stones. The amenities are nice including two pools, hot tub, kids area, pool table and very nice library that has books and dvds for checkout. The utilities are good but be warned if you are in a larger rv to call ahead early as 50 amp sites can be hard to come by. This is a fabulous area to launch your Stowe, Smugglars Notch, Von Trapp resort and brewery and the Lamoille River Rail Trail. There is great OTA tv reception. The only negative is that because the campground is a bit out of town cell reception on ATT is impossible and Verizon can be utilized up towards the office. The wifi is feast or famine. At times we had very fast speeds and at other times the wifi was useless, which seemed to be related to the number of campers in the park. All in all this is a fabulous park and we would certainly return if our travels pass this way again. - tomcotten

Overall I am satisfied with this campground. It is clean and well run. We will be here about a month and satisfied to date. Staff attentive and friendly. CG has 2 pools and clean. We have a motorhome and 50 amp full hook up. I believe all sites are easy back in. - txtrav

Check in staff was helpful and offered one of their newer 50 amp sites that are a bit more spacious for our larger rig. We were only there two nights passing through so we were not too fussy about our site specifics. Site was easy to back into and easy to achieve level with air or hydraulics. We didn't use any amenities here or even pay attention to our mobile data coverage. Utilities seemed fine. Good location for visiting Stowe, Ben & Jerrys, Mt Mansfield. - leemhicks

We stayed in campsite #37. It was pretty level with reasonable privacy. This park is meticulously maintained by an extremely energetic and helpful staff. The beach is great as is the climb to the fire tower. - Ronahue

Elmore State Park is huge with over 36 square miles of land. There is a beautiful lake in the park which is a walk away from the campground with the Elmore Mountains in the background. The campground is laid out in two big loops and many of the sites are huge and very private. There are 45 tent and RV sites and 15 lean-to’s which Vermont seems to have in most of their state park. Restrooms are clean and the showers are pay. At the lake one can canoe and swim and they just built a new building with bathrooms and a lobby with rocking chairs, stone fireplace and picnic tables. This was a one night stopover for us while traveling Vermont in the Fall. Rangers were very nice and we would return but there are no hookups. The town is close to Stowe, Waterbury and Montpelier and is a popular tourist destination in the summer. - gsnakehill

Nice campground with really friendly staff. The sites are grass and are close together. We had no trees so no problem with getting satellite service. We had very weak TMobile service. There is free wifi available throughout Stowe. I ended up going to the library and working during the day. It worked out very well. - Chuck Shrader

Location, location, location. We have a 40 MH so our options are limited, and this was the perfect base camp for our week in the Stowe area. For us, this campground was perfect because we weren't there to "camp". It's not nestled in the woods, it is an open grassy area but there are more trees than some other reviews have indicated. The openness allows for beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. We had a level spot. Some sites are closer than others, and we were pretty tight with the motorhomes on either side of us. But we didn't spend much time there, so it wasn't a big deal to us. The campground sits on the main road, but it's pretty quiet at night (except for road construction that happened to be going on at night while we were there). Making reservations and a couple follow up phone calls, plus check in, were maybe the most pleasant experience we've ever had - very friendly! We would definitely stay here again. - Roaming Together

This place was a great base for our trip to Stowe. Great experience from reservation to checkout. They had a water issue while we were there and tracked us down to let us know. Best cable service of any place we have stayed. This is a no frills place, if you are looking for events and activities go elsewhere. But if you are looking for a good base camp with good basic service this is a great place. We will be back the next time we pass through. - brehmca

Yet another relaxing, beautiful stay at Hazens Notch Campground. Stayed there 3 nights over Labor Day weekend and had a very relaxing time. Quiet and peaceful. My wife and I had a great campfire where we watched the stars for hours. In the morning of the last day we discovered a deer fawn had slept nestled under the back of our our trailer to get out of the rain and munched wild apples. What could be better than that. We are already looking forward to camping there again! The owner helped my sister in law back her camper in because her husband was at work. He made sure everything was taken care of and even came by later to see if we needed anything. - set182

What a beautiful diamond in the rough. The views are spectacular from the top of Hazen's Notch Mountain! The owner does a great job with this small campground and is a wonderful host. We stayed 4 nights during a charity event called Bare Bones and had a blast! It is great place to hide away as there is no cell service. You can just DE-stress because there is no Wi-fi or TV to stress you out with the evening news or emails and phone calls. Nice sites with trees and open sites, but there is a limited number of sites with full hookups, so if you plan to go, you should call ahead to to check if they are available. If you ride a motorcycle, as we do, the surrounding area of the North East Kingdom is beautiful to ride through, and a trip around Lake Willoughby is a must. We plan on staying again over the Labor Day weekend and again and again! - set182

Roads are a little tight, some sites a little tight getting into. We meet another couple here to go to Ben and Jerrys. A little for off the beaten path but a good stay. - goldsp8

Vermont has got to be one of the prettiest states. Little River State Park is a beautiful park near Waterbury, in the middle of the state, next to Waterbury Reservoir. The campground is dry camping. Sites are generally large enough for smaller rigs, and a few sites are big enough for big rigs. Our site (site 4) was interesting to get into, we had to back around a corner and avoid some trees. But once we were in the site, it was level, and there was plenty of room to stretch out. The campground is heavily forested, and most sites are pretty dark. We weren't able to get our satellite radio to work. I would assume satellite dishes would have the same problem. Sites are dirt. There was a major rainstorm while we were there, that caused flooding all over the northeast. During and shortly after the storm, our campsite was a lake. Within a few hours, though, the water had drained through the sandy soil, and the storm might as well have never happened. The roads were the same way. The road leading to the park is dirt (but suddenly becomes paved at the entrance to the park). After the storm, there was no evidence of any problem from the water. Our favorite part of the stay was kayaking on the lake. The campground rents kayaks for very reasonable prices. On a nice day, it's the perfect way to experience Vermont. There's also lots of hiking, and mountain biking. - AnnP

This campground is 3 miles in from the interstate and nestled up against a hillside beside a reservoir. The sites are nicely spaced out, level and many having great privacy. I drive a 38-foot Class A that is very tall at 13 feet and I didn't have any problem getting to the campground or into my site. They put me in a pull through that was way bigger than I needed and there are plenty of other sites I could have backed into.
There are no hookups but they do have a dump station and potable water.
But the best part is how beautiful it is up here. The lake has a swimming area. They even have a ramp to put in a boat if you have one. And I just got done hiking for 2 hours along an amazing trail that followed a beautiful creek. Vermont at its best.
The bathrooms are rudimentary but clean and it looks like they are building another new one. There's no wi-fi but I do get Verizon cell service.
Vermont also has a law that you can only run your generator for two hours in the morning and two hours in the late afternoon, other than that it needs to be off.
I'd easily come back here. - US Traveler

This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. The sites are roomy, the park is very clean and well taken care of. The owner is very nice and helpful. It is a small park but in a beautiful setting. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. - GranNan06

Easy reservation process, friendly check in, well maintained campground. Very quiet at night, beautiful sunsets, manager and his team are friendly and helpful. Level, grassy spot. Out in the country, yet the Burlington airport and waterfront are only about 35 minutes away. Verizon cell and mifi worked fine. Rate reflects monthly rate. Would definitely stay here again. - Roaming Together

We stayed at Maple Grove for 5 days to attend a wedding near St Albans. This is a small park with about 25 sites most of them occupied by friendly seasonal guests. We were even invited to join a nearby group at their campfire our first night there. The park is very clean, well maintained, and was very quiet. All the hookups and even the WiFi worked well. OTA television was also good. Burlington, St Albans, and Kill Kare State Park are all within a 30-40 minute drive. Several of the residents noticed our bicycles on the back of our trailer and suggested we go to Burlington and ride the waterfront trails there. Sadly, the day we wanted to go the weather didn't cooperate. We plan to go back next summer and try again. Kayaks are very popular at the state park and it's about a one mile paddle to Burton Island Campground. Our only problem was getting into our site when we arrived. The roads are a little narrow for a larger trailer. You just need to be aware and make your turns a little wider. The back in was a bit of a challenge because the road curved at the site's entry point. Our 40ft 5th wheel fit fine after a couple of back & forth moves; and the cooperation of the gentleman across the road who waved us down as we approached so he could move his truck for us. The owner is a genuinely friendly person always puttering around somewhere. From what the other guests told us he has really fixed up and improved the park since he bought it. He even has a solar array that provides a good part of the electric service to the park. We plan to return next summer for a visit and some bike and kayak riding. (We'll check up on the newlyweds while we're there too.) :) - Mack & Mary Ellen

What a great campground, very spacious sites, good wifi, owner was absolutely wonderful, always checking to make sure everything was going fine and we didn't need anything. Perfect place to stay with dogs, big open field to let them run off leash and trails into the woods along a stream for them to swim. Only drawback is that only a limited number of sites have sewer. - DoodleMom

Pricing reflects PA discount available Sunday through Thursday. We had planned to stay here 4 nights but ended up staying 8 partly because of the very helpful owner, strong free WiFi, fair pricing and (finally!) the appearance of some nice fall colors. The owner really makes an effort to keep the park looking nice, the restroom clean and everything working as it should. Newport Vermont, the closest good-size town, sits about 23 miles to the north on the shores of Lake Memphremagog-the majority of which lays in Quebec, Canada. Not all RV sites have sewer but Mark is hoping to remedy this in the near future. If you don't get a sewer site they will even loan you a blue tote. We opted for a site (#3) that didn't have sewer because it was huge and backed up to a nice creek, which our black lab enjoyed. Our AT&T phones worked well and there was no problem getting DirecTV. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this beautiful park. - Camera Buff

Still an excellent campground for a relaxing stay. Mark is a wonderful host, full of suggestions for touring the area. Baths are small but well-maintained. Single washer and dryer. Only a few sites with sewer hookup. Grass sites with some shade. Antenna no problem. Good AT&T service. Lots to do in the area (Newport & Derby Line, Jay Peak). A little highway noise. - Rod n Mary

Great people, great new location. Small on size, large on personality. Tucked in the middle of nowhere. If you want an amusement park, this is not the place but it is the place that is near many attractions and just a great place to spend time. Very clean. Very large private sites. THIS is camping. - tyandow
