17 RV Parks near Lake Elmore, Vermont
Sep 2011 - $18.00
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

This campground was a total disappointment and not worth the money. The shuffle board did not have any points/markings on it at all and the miniature golf course had moss growing on all the greens and grass growing out of the cups. The turf was ripped up. The horse shoe pits were overgrown with grass. We were not told there was WIFI, we inquired and were pointed to the passwords on the counter. That was a waste of time as well, because the signal was so weak. The pool liner was pulling away from the sides. There is absolutely no maintenance that goes on there and they should not advertise what they do not have. My husband and I had a couple days to get away and thought there would be something to do. It seems some of the seasonal campers are happy sitting in the river in their chairs and throwing rocks!(?). - KBushey

Unfortunately for us, this was the worst campground I have ever visited and I have been to many. For starters, there were no activities for the weekend for the kids like there has been at every other campground we have stayed at. The mini golf course they had there was a joke: it was completely overgrown with grass, the green was all ripped up, grass growing out of the holes: completely different than what the pictures online showed. The wifi was minimal if at all. Just a complete disappointment for us: would not recommend this place to anyone with children nor will we visit here again. - CourtneyPage

We stayed two nights, the first night we were near a rude camper that had a canopy right up close to our rv and sat right outside our window talking loud till after 11:00 PM. The next day they let us move and the stay was better. The astro-turf on the mini golf was so bad you couldn't play it. We had only a few towels that we wanted to dry after 2x they were still wet. The hot tub was under lock and key. As for the name the only place you can see a mountain is when you're standing in the river. No cable but over the air was good. - Lake Buffalo

Maplewoods Campground is in a very beautiful setting. I had site # 2 a back in site that looked out across the valley and Vermont hills in three directions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The roads were wide and access to back into my sites was easy. All of the amenities worked very well. It is located close to Johnson and just a little farther to Stowe and since we stayed two nights we did lots of exploring the Vermont Countryside and of course bought some (a gallon) wonderful Vermont Maple syrup. I would definitely stay here again if I get back to Vermont. - Cardinal owner

Friendly staff. Hard packed gravel roads & sites, sites level and spacious, facilities very clean including pool. Only issue was the showers are coin operated. Beautiful valley views. We did have minor issues with the 50A power when our residential fridge & microwave both went out. No breaker issues, I am furthest from any knowledge of electricity, but I did get sufficient power back by starting the bus again, basically maybe a reboot of the rig's system. This is a majority seasonal residents park. - rvrrat520

Maplewoods is a great campground. The setting is gorgeous with beautiful views of the valley and mountains in the distance. Fall colors in the area are great. The campground itself is new. Roads are hard packed gravel, as are the sites. All hookups worked well and are well located. Very wide interior roads made navigation easy in our 43 foot motorhome and toad. They have a good gift shop and nice pool as well. Overall, this is a really, really good spot to use as a base camp for exploring the area. It's close to both Johnson (5 minutes) and Stowe (about 20 minutes). Both are lovely towns. - kmghmg

We made a spur of the moment decision to stay in Stowe overnight rather than deal with weekend traffic. Gold Brook looked nice from the outside, with lots of grass, but the facilities were terrible. Horrible showers, minimal laundry, and rude service. Next time we'll just keep driving. - Ardi

Yes, the check-in person was pretty gruff but the park is a good place to stay, especially if you want to visit Stowe. We thought $49 was a bit much for a full-service back-in site on a grass field with spotty wifi, but hey, we just had one day to see Stowe. There are many trees sprinkled about the park but most are open sites. Many sites are right next to each other so you may want to request a site with some distance between you and your neighbor. And away from the road. Our wi-fi was ok but slow. I think we were in # 53 within site of the office. - alm

Pretty much everything other reviewers have written about the conditions of the park are true. We didn't have any trouble with the front desk or camp workers; we saw no evidence of rudeness or drinking mentioned by the previous reviewer. Four 50 amp sites are towards the back of the park with plenty of maneuvering room. We had #79 which is the last one and looks out over the open meadow. We are self contained and had no need to use the bathrooms or laundry. The park served us well as a base for exploring Stowe and the surrounding area. We stayed three nights. - DiplomatTraveler

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

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

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

Beautiful large wooded sites, but took a little time to get into. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice restrooms especially the new ones. Could use more showers in the first bath house. Nice programs for kids. Would definitely camp here again. - Crump

Primitive state campground with excellent sites that are well cared for, and cleaned before arrival. There are new restrooms and showers being built, and programs for all age groups that were well received. Rangers would always be there to help you. The lake was clean and all types of boats permitted. We plan to stay here again. - FredGinger

Okay place to overnight if you have a smaller rig. Big rigs cannot make the turn inside the campground. Luckily we had unhooked the toad before arrival. Very friendly people and great views. Level full hookup 30 amp only back in grass sites. Good WIFI, but cell service spotty. Does not accept credit cards. Road noise from Hwy. 2. Probably will stay somewhere else next time. - teepee51

Although there was a little mix up with the site, and one guest had already unsuccessfully tried a site that had become too muddy, the campground host worked out an alternative site, and the site owners took care of the muddy site in the next day or two. Wi-fi is good at this campground (compared to others), but I wish the laundry area was a bit more tidied up. The grounds were very clean and scenic. Also, very convenient to north central Vermont cities and attractions. Some road noise at some of the sites adjacent to Hwy 2, but hey that's why ear plugs were created. Level sites with mostly shade and friendly owners. Who could ask for more? - webtrainer

It is a smaller RV park, but owners are super awesome! They are great and friendly people and very helpful! They helped us with backing our rig up, he brought over cinder blocks for the rear trailer jacks (the ground sloped a little), and she even ran down the street to pick up food we ordered from Positive Pie b/c they don't deliver. Very gracious hosts!
We had a fairly level site with a truck/camper and travel trailer. It had full hookups but only had one 30 amp outlet. Not a big deal b/c we had a 30 amp adapter and a splitter so both the camper and trailer got hooked up and there were no load capacity issues b/c we didn't need to run the A/C (it dropped to 40 degrees that night). Wifi worked fairly well, too.
I would definitely stay here again. Excellent hospitality! - BadSquirrel

The roads in VT leave much to be desired and the state road leading from US 2 to the campground is really rough even at 35 mph. I called at least 3 weeks before for a site and we arrived just before lunch time. There was a sign on the office door saying: "Back at 5." (and something like) Park in the center and something about a post. I had no idea what the note meant. I worked my way into a site next to the office. While we were eating lunch a couple arrived and he knocked on the door saying there was going to be a family reunion and he had reserved that site 2 weeks ago. We were on our way to the last tour of the day at Rock of Ages so I said we would be back after 5. When we returned the owner showed up saying I gave the other guy a hard time. I said why didn't you say take a site in the center of the field (numbered 1 to 4)? He gave me a blank look and said I had to move. By not placing a cone or tape on the reserved site it caused me to have to move and the other guy to move also. There was a storm threatening and it began to rain. That said the campground is very neat with grass everywhere. For a small campground there is lots of traffic coming and going. Nothing around there so I'm not sure where they are going. VZ service was spotty, Sprint not at all. Wifi was weak but worked slowly. - mrracechaser

This is Vermont ! The GPS sent us to the State Park instead of here.
Quiet, no one was there to check in.
There weren't any level lots, We had to switch our sleeping arrangements around. Our lot probably had a 30 degree downward slope.
There were about 5 people in the whole park that night. Everyone was a permanent except for us.
The stars were beautiful! No tv service, no phone service just peace and quiet after a long drive from Ont Canada that day.
The bathrooms do not have any heat so the showers didn't appear to have been used for awhile. It was COLD in them thar hills!!!
If your going to stay for awhile bring a book. - SubVet SSBN619

Clean, quiet and very friendly helpful owner. Had some problems with our van and helped us find a dealer to help. WiFi poor unless you go to the porch of the main building. No shade, no level pads just grass to park on. - Moose and Squirrel

This park had heavily-potholed entry roads, traffic noise and no Wi-Fi. Our 30-amp, no sewer site delivered only 109 volts of electricity. The few spots with 50 amp and sewer were occupied by long-term customers. A bridge on the only access road had a 27,000 pound limit, a legalism frequently ignored to judge by the Class A motor homes in the park. Our satellite dish had no problems. Verizon phone/internet service was spotty. - Mtmoi

Small campground along large stream under scattered tree canopy, some open meadow sites. Minimal road noise, very peaceful with mountain views. Convenient to Montpelier (12 miles), as well as Cabot Cheese tour, Barre granite tour, & several maple sugar shacks. Does have a 1 lane bridge w wt limit of 24,000 lbs (as best I remember), otherwise would be big rig friendly. Open April to October, phone 802-426-3232 - readontheroad
