17 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

Our only complaint is that we were charged 10.00 for our friends that came in around 6 pm and left at 7 just to say goodbye. No personal service here. No owner/ manager was on duty to discuss. Site was very well maintained. - Cindy dunn

Great place to stay with the kids. Hot tub very relaxing. Great Snack bar across street. Not far from Stowe. Well worth the pretty ride! - Family Repel

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

Starts out with great friendly people at the front counter. Nice store/office that you can spend some time in looking around. While the camp ground has only been open since 2012, it has come along way and the owners have vision. Very large, grassy sites with gravel drives. A nice tiered design to the CG and it is still expanding. - Cmarkj

Brand new beautiful campground nestled in the Green Mountains. Friendly staff, large sites, fairly level and easy to back in to. Good cable, excellent cell phone coverage, Wi-Fi spotty but they are working on it, Our 4g Verizon mobile hotspot works excellent. Rate reflects monthly stay. They are definitely doing things right. We will be back next summer. - Dave n Faye

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

The worst campground experience we've ever had. Staff is the rudest I have ever encountered. Rude on the phone, even ruder in person. Very over priced. Not at all a True Vermont experience. The No Refunds No Exceptions sign in the office should have been our first clue. Sites right on busy Route 100. Traffic kept the kids awake. Very out dated and very dirty. Owner and his groundskeeper appear to drink. Staff Very unfriendly. Not helpful. Thought it funny to give wrong directions to Ben & Jerry's Factory. WiFi did not work. Pay shower did not work. No money back! And after we checked out we stopped at the Coke machine only to be yelled at by the groundskeeper that the machine was only for campers staying there and we needed to leave. Will Never stay here again. Would recommend you keep driving right by! - Family Repel

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

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

I have stayed here a few times and always have been satisfied. Very country setting. Lots of trees and a great location to take visits to Central Vermont. Great wifi , some tv available with antenna. Very helpful owners and a nice cozy clubhouse. - Bart Foster

The owners are super nice and very knowledgeable about the area. They were able to point us in the direction of places we hadn't heard to visit but ended up loving.
The views in and around the campground are simply beautiful. It's quiet and peaceful and everyone we talked to had great things to say about the campground. It is very convenient to visit Montpelier or even Burlington and there is plenty to do near by! The park wifi was amazing and they even had a slip and slide for the kids! - FrugalNavyWife

Small but quaint little park on the top of a hill in an iconic Vermont setting. Rate reflects a one week $150 rate. 20 min. west of Montpelier right on Hwy. 2 which does give traffic noise until about 10:00pm. Hookups all very accessible and host/owners very 'hands on' with flower beds, mowed lawns and prompt email and phone replies. WiFi excellent, did not try the above ground pool (too cold), honor system laundry (no hot water), sites are mostly grass but very level with picnic table and fire ring. Good tree shade from sun but satellite still available, very poor antenna TV (I got 1 station), good radio and ATT phone. A rec. room houses a pool table and book exchange in an enjoyable little park, many kudos to the on site owners, I would Certainly stay again. - SailorGolf

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 is a jewel of a park, located in a beautiful area. You look out your door and see mountains and forest. The owners are easy to work with, they keep the park beautiful and well maintained. They have one area where horses can be kept while camping. It is quiet and other campers were friendly and respectful. I would love to go again and spend time. You do have to travel up a mountain road to get to the park, but so worth it. - dldw1954

PA rate. Beautiful park about 20 miles from Montpelier. Forested area, but the park itself is not heavily forested, which is a perfect combination. Immaculately maintained, owner exceedingly friendly and helpful. No sewer but dump station. Satellite-based internet, so somewhat slow, but not his fault. He just installed a second satellite dish to service additional sites.
Highly recommended. - Dshinnick

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
