16 Parks near Rochester, Vermont
Sep 2006 - $14.00
This is a very small, well run park. Our family loved it. While there is no swimming availability at the camp ground the owners are very willing to give directions to local swimming holes and rivers. The owners were wonderful to us, helping us out in any way we needed. When they found out that we were in the area to do some genealogy they introduced us to a local historian and gave us lots of information on the area. The grounds themselves are lovely. We stayed in a shady site that was more than generous for our pop-up. This is not the place to go if you want tons of activities for the kids or big swimming pools and entertainment. It is camping like it was meant to be: clear stars at night, peaceful woods and fields and family around the campfire. The kids loved the hike to the cliffs. The bathrooms were flush toilets and free hot showers. Very basic, but clean and with plenty of hot water and toilet paper! We will definitely stay here again!! The web site was great with pictures of each site and really a true to life description of the whole campground. No hype and down to earth. - nony0

A nice, isolated, quiet campround along the 3rd branch of the White River. Single lane gravel access roads (some are grass) with an interesting descending curve coming in. Mix of grass and gravel sites (mostly grass) some in an open field, others in a lightly wooded area.
Power was mostly ok (did have one low voltage on Leg 1 during our stay). Water (40psi) and sewer ok. Wifi reasonable signal strength and speed. Verizon cell pretty much non-existent (voice and data) although sometimes a voice call would work. TMobile had good signal strength and speed. Minimal road bike riding in immediate area. Single stream recycling on site.
We will definitely stay here again. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

Our site overlooked a very nice creek and it was quite large. The owners were very helpful as we needed repair on a tire and they had someone come to see us right away. - Barb Stout

We stayed here four nights on our way back from Acadia National Park in Maine. It was the 4th of July weekend so lots of locals were there. Nothing very special about this place but it was ok for what we needed. There is a creek that runs next to the park and it is beautiful.
The major negative is the internet. They have about 6 different "sites" to connect to but it was hit or miss, mostly miss, with all of them. Forget getting internet from your camper. They claim it is an older system that they will be replacing. The internet even right next to the pool or office many times did not work.
We are told they are new owners since March 2016. They are nice but very laid back...almost too much. Never really saw them.
They did have a live country band Saturday night and they were great. A train does come through in the evening so just a little warning. One night it came passing through at 4:00 AM.
I would stay here again if we were passing by but wouldn't go out of my way to stay here. It was recommended to us by an RV blog to stay here. I think there are better places. - aka4170

Nice family campground. Big meadow for large rigs and motorhomes. Plenty of secluded tent and pop-up sites. Lots of riverfront sites for tents, with easy access into the water - jofus

Beautiful campgrounds, good conscientious owners, everything very clean. We enjoyed a spectacular view of the lake and mountains. Nice hiking trails. - Plastic Man

Of the 37 campgrounds we stayed in this summer this was certainly the VERY NICEST!
Beautiful setting, Great Back Country Views, Clean, Well Kept, Big Spaces and very friendly and accommodating owner managers.
And I might add, an excellent value!
The park was nearly full but they still found us a perfect site.
All the sites sit on a gentle hillside stair stepping down toward their own little lake. The whole area is grass.
We will surely stay here again when were in Vermont... - happyflyer

The park is, for the most part, laid out in terraces so everyone has a beautiful view. Large grassy pull through sites with FHU. WiFi was great. - Duramax1217

This is a great state park as long as you can be happy without hookups. There are several spots that work for large RVs in the open camping on the west. East side campground road is narrow and treed but great for smaller RVs/tents. Site 21 is creekside and very private and has been voted best campsite in VT. Clean beach for swimming, great hiking trails close by. Staff was excellent and helpful. Cell service was sketchy. - viadelmangos

This is a very nice state park located on Lake Dunmore. The campground is divided into two camping areas, separated by a road. We stayed in the open, grassy, area by the lake. The other camping area is heavily wooded. Both areas have restrooms with flush toilets and hot showers ($). While I don't like having to lug quarters with me to the shower house, at least the water was hot, and the restrooms were Very clean. However, there was no hot water facet in the sink, which I found odd, and a bit inconvenient if you just want to wash your hands or face. There was only one shower in the bath house where we were. For 17 sites I can imagine it would get busy in the summer. As it was, we were one of only two campers there for two days of our stay, so it was not an issue for us, and on the third day we did not attempt to use the showers as we were heading home. The showers were not handicapped accessible, though there was a small bench in the dressing area (none in the shower itself), which was difficult, as I have severe arthritis. But I managed. If it were not for these small issues I would have given the park a definite 10 as it is very pretty, and the rangers are very nice and helpful. Plenty of area to walk the dog, and though dogs are not allowed on the swimming beach, they are allowed to swim by the boat launch area, which made our dog very happy. The camping area by the lake is very park like with beautiful maple tress and plenty of shade. I would definitely stay here again. - nativemainer

I found this campground a quiet gem. It is a CG on one side of the street and the marina across the street on lake dunmore. The CG has electric and water at the sites. The driveway has gravel but grass all around. The sites up front are level but in the back of the. CG where seasonals are it is hilly. There is a nice babbling brook on site also. The CG is clean and well maintained. Everyone was friendly, from registration to the girl at the small camp store. There is a beach and marina where you can rent motorized boats, canoes and paddle boards. The lake is lovely and clean...even though we caught no fish! There is a pub style restaurant right on the water . I would definitely return here. - Winnebago Wanderers

We have camped here a couple of times this year. This campground draws my family back often it seems. We have friends that have a seasonal there that love it lots. They are trying to talk us into a seasonal here. My wife and I have talked about it and thought we just might. This last stay this year we were going to talk to the part owner until we found out about the bugs. That entire area including kampersville is horrible with bugs. So we now will be staying a month early in the season when they're not around. They try and spray twice a week it helps a little. This campground is very nice. They have a beach with water toys for the kids and sandy area for them to play in or lay in your chairs. Boat rentals and dock space is also available. Our site that we have stayed at every time we go is perfect. We have a river behind us and the lake in front of us. Our site is BIG with plenty of room to roam. I backed our fifth wheel into the space and it was perfectly level without any blocking. The staff is very pleasant and eager to help in any way. The bathrooms/showers are nice as some of the buildings are brand new. We can't wait to go back next year and enjoy another stay. - HappyCampers5

Had to move from a nearby CG due to insufficient voltage (Green Mountain Family Campground). Found this on advice from fellow camper. They had a FHU pull thru available. Would stay again. - Retired Lt

Busy place on weekends. Full of tents and happy families. 2 pools and lake shore swimming very nice. Shady sites OK to maneuver into with out 25ft Class C. Park hosted a dance both nights. All ages in together. One neighbor started getting loud and rowdy, but only for a short while. All quiet all over on time and folks were generally quiet in the mornings too. I would go back for sure. Big storm blew over power pole, no elec for a few hours, even the store had no power but all got along and it was a good stay. - cherish

The park has new owners, and wow what a difference it has made! I camped here twice in 2008 and the campground was immaculate, and the owners were very helpful and courteous. They made me feel very welcome, even suggested areas to visit and had menus of local restaurants to look at. There is a new store and office that has loads of stuff and the pool area is very well equipped with furniture and tables. The campground had many campers both times I visited, but I still felt like I was camping in Vermont with beautiful trees and large grassy areas. The owners were diligently cleaning the bath house every morning and every night. I highly recommend the Campground!! - DGSteve

Only campground we ever went to, where they had no provision for our trash (told us to take it with us)! You could pay $4 a bag to have your trash taken. They also told us not to pick up our dog waste (we did anyway). Bathrooms dirty. If you stay one night you pay extra to dump. No chairs by the pool. No recreation facilities. Everything was for the convenience of the owners. We have NEVER felt so unwelcome. We were only one of 4 campers at the campground and we quickly found out why it was so empty. Large grassy sites, though. They do keep it mowed. Its a passion of the owner, he mows all day! That's all he does. I don't think they ever clean the bathrooms. Extra for A/C. - pyrlover

We needed a cg near Burlington as we were going to a rally and this fit our needs. Big rigs are an easy fit. We are a 36' MH plus toad. Delightful cg. rv owners, actual rvers, new owners(2nd year). We were greeted warmly at the office, paid and then led to our site. We were as far from the office as we could be and the wifi was very solid. Only 30a service but they are planning to upgrade to 50a. Would come back here again. - Wandering

We stayed at this park for 6 nights. Wonderful people! Though close to Hwy 7, it was very quiet, lots of trees between us and the road. The owner is new as of August 2014. He has put a lot into fixing it up and plans to continue the upgrades. My only criticism is the wifi, thet do have it, but currently you have to be within 30-40 yds of the office...none of the sites are that close. Owner is trying to correct that with his vendor. Will stay here again for sure.41. - kltfaught

Published on-line rates are $30 less a 10% discount if senior, police/fire. And a one night reservation fee. He charged us $80 upfront for two nights and it should have been $54 for the two nights we were there. Upon arrival the sites were sideways up a mountain side and very un level. Then the electric service was 108 volts with a ground fault issue. Told us he would fix the over billing issue but did not. Would not return our multiple phone calls to the CG or his cell phone. Had to leave and find another CG so we did not damage our electronics or appliances...
Told us to dump our grey water on the ground. Saw others (long term campers) with sewer hoses running out into the woods....can only guess what they were dumping....... - Retired Lt
