20 Parks near Shelburne, Vermont
Jul 2016 - $46.00
We stayed the night before going into the Champlain Valley fair grounds for a rally so we could arrive with full fresh water tank and empty waste tanks. The camping area is convenient for visiting the Shelburne Museum. The site we were in was supposed to be a pullthrough (to pull through diagonally) but we would have been hard pressed to hook up our electric or sewer if we had parked diagonally across the site. The site was deep enough for us to be able to back in and have our tow vehicle parked beside us.
The signage for the office was lacking; after turning in off of highway 7, it was not at all obvious where the office was - we just kept on driving straight down and eventually came across it. - pattic777

When I pay $47 to a camp ground, I expect the things they advertise to work: cable, wifi. I expect the roads to be pretty smooth and the site to be level and wide enough to back into without several attempts to adjust for the trees. I don't expect to step into muddy dirt in my spot. I expect a decent bathroom with more than a concrete floor and wet spots around the toilets and plenty of bugs. I expect the advertised pool to be more than 3 feet deep. I expect to be offered a partial refund if these things don't work. Next time I'll try the parks north of Burlington. - Camaraderie

There are not many campground choices for a 40 foot motorhome in the Burlington area. We stayed here two nights and it was very convenient for us. However, the park was not very well maintained and is located back behind a rundown motel and cabins. The space was tight. But it was all we needed and we were happy to have found a spot. There are a number of seasonal campers. - ArkansasTraveler

We camped here in a 36' 5th wheel w/3 slides and a F-350 DRW truck. This is a public campground on Lake Champlain, although none of the RV sites are right on the lake. There are a lot of walking/biking trails throughout and surrounding the campground and a nice beach area. Most sites are heavily wooded but there are some satellite friendly sites. The campground is clean and well maintained. We were in site #1, FHU, gravel/dirt back-in; plenty of space for 5th wheel and truck. Good space between sites. Picnic table and fire ring at sites. Hook-ups are at the rear of the sites but we had no problem with our standard sewer hose reaching the connections. Roof-mounted DirecTV satellite worked well; Verizon cell phone and WiFi worked well. Did not use the restrooms/showers so can't comment. Laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers. Campground is fairly quiet. Over-priced for a public campground. This was our 2nd visit to this campground. - Moneypenny

Great city park. Located close to downtown and other attractions. We used this a base camp for the area. The staff were very helpful since we could only get one night at first. The manager worked it out and we only moved after the first day to a site we stayed on for the next 3 nights. Had all hookups. The park is very clean and bike trails run thru the CG. We would stay again. - belanga

We stayed here for seven days to visit family in Vermont. Although we have a motorhome we were put in a site near tents and small travel trailers. This was because they had no other sites available for us. We had only electricity and water at the first site, which was mostly dirt with a small amount of gravel. After the weekend we were able to move to a much nicer site site 115 with full hookups, more private, and up against the trees away from everyone. There are also other sites with full hookups near the main gate in the single digits, but all the traffic flows past them. The site location had a little grass and was quite unlevel. There are no pads in the park.
We were here seven days and got to know the park and the area very well. The bathrooms are clean daily but not well. The light fixtures are filthy and full of bugs. The sink in back of the restrooms where you wash your dishes had many spiders hanging over them, but when I mentioned it to the office they quickly cleaned it. The staff in the office is mostly college kids and sometimes they get the job done and sometimes they don't.
The beach is well-groomed and well taken care of, there is no trash, it is clean and there are outdoor showers as well as bathrooms. The bike path is near the campground but it is unlike any I have seen in the sense that people don't think that they have to move over for bikers. This is definitely a bike path not a pedestrian Trail. I am used to fast paced bike paths, this is not one, so just be prepared for a slow pace. - KSum

Camp sites very close together. Fire pits were moved close together and very heavy to relocate. If I had left my fire pit where it was my slide would have been over my neighbor's which would not have been acceptable especially to their kids who wanted to toast marshmallows.
Could only get water and electric (for $48.00 per night) and electric kept shutting off. Called for help but no one arrived - finally took off surge protector and power stayed on.
Laundry was old - one dryer was taken apart, hand dryer in bathroom did not work and bathroom was not particularly clean.
Front desk personnel was pleasant and tried to assist with problems but apparently owner does not have a great deal of interest in fixing things. - Sheila123

I did this review largely to warn folks about the somewhat awkward hookups. For every four campsites (two and two back-to-back) there are two power pedestals grouped together. Each pedestal has one 15A outlet, one 30A outlet and one 50A outlet. I guess the hope is that half of the users will require 50A service and half will require 30A service. Otherwise, a lot of 50A-30A adapters will be needed. Also, there are four water spigots at each set of power pedestals. Sewer connections are about thirty feet from the pedestals. Long story short, we needed 50ft of power cord and 50ft of water hose to reach our trailer. Although the setup is awkward, the price is high and the bathrooms are old and not clean we would camp here again because this campground is 3 miles from the Causeway rail-trail (across part of Lake Champlain) which should not be missed. - geysergazer

88 Mallets Bay Campground Rd, Colchester VT 05446. Across the road from Lake Champlain. If you want shade, this is the place. Large, mature shade trees close to the roads can make parking difficult. Sites are close together, about 15 feet apart. Discount 10% with AAA card. We were there on a holiday weekend; felt very crowded. - meanderingman

They did not have a pull through site for us, but made a back in work. Nice place except sites too close together. It got really full on the weekend, and we were glad we were leaving as the septic smell got very bad. We were on one site for two nights and then another for two more. - Plastic Man

My wife and I really enjoyed this park. The campsites were very close together though, without landscaping between them. The grounds were clean and well kept and the bathrooms were also clean. Though they had a pool and small putt-putt course, I would not consider this campground a destination campground. This campground works well for people needing a base-camp while visiting the region. - GregT44266

Excellent park. Would stay again. Somewhat remote location but quick drive into town. Can be noise from Interstate which runs right along part of the campground, otherwise very quiet. Llong grassy sites with many class As surrounded by seasonal park models. Sites look flat but have a significant slope, bring leveling blocks. Water is on a central pole and may be 40' or 50' from coach. They loaned us an extension hose. Staff is very nice and friendly, park is immaculate. Even the trash cans seemed to be deodorized. Mini golf course and pedal carts for rent. Grass doesn't get muddy during rain but after mowing you will track grass into your coach for days. No WiFi except at the main office. Satellite reception is mixed. We stayed for 3 weeks and moved spots a few times. We had satellite reception in 2 spots and not in a third. - Bryanmsi

I camped at other campgrounds with all the bells and whistles then here. I enjoyed this trip more, nothing over-the-top but a nice campground. The adventures of the chasm directly across the street is why we will return. Unlike any experience in NY State. Highly recommended!! - RiggsandClem

Very old & musty bathrooms. Showers were tiny, but fairly clean. Very hilly & unlevel lots, but nice & shady. Okay for overnight after touring the gorgeous Ausable Chasm. - Jeter1954

Formerly a KOA. Needs some work, but it was ok to use as a base for visiting the local area. Stayed five nights. Site was surrounded by tall pines, but was open enough to see the stars at night. It was all grass, fairly level, w/picnic table and fire ring. Campground shower area was private with each of the shower areas having its own entry door. Didn't see or hear anything about the thefts as mentioned in the previous post. We were near the front of the campground and therefore close to the office so that may have provided some protection. Interior roads were rough in some areas, but not bad enough to do any damage. - JWEngle

We stayed on a weekday so the park was mostly empty. Great water and mountain views. Good canoeing. Our site had no hookups. We did not use the public toilets, so I have no comment. Fresh water and dump station access was good. Access roads within the park were good. Every site was level. There no TV reception using a standard amplified antenna. - R V Camper

Rate reflects required reservation fee which makes it a bit 'high' for no hook-ups. Add $2 for site with 'lake view' and No senior discounts. Activities and sites etc. remain as previous reviews. Most all sites in the big loop are in an open area good for solar and satellite, and would accommodate most any size rig despite the on-line suggestions. Fuel and grocery services are a bit away. Pool is only 3 feet deep, left over from the Girl Scout Park days. I liked this park as evidently do many 'locals' on the weekends, and would stay again for several days to make the daily average fee more reasonable. - SailorGolf

Beautiful location but not good if you want any hookups. Very few trees so in 95 degree summer weather our MH got too hot. Very little shade. The view from our site was worth staying for a few days but we were traveling with dogs and the MH just got too hot. There is limited generator use and for us it wasn't enough. Try and get site T52, unbelievable view. - The Sandbox

When we pulled in and went into the office, we were surprised, it is small and overwhelmed with 'stuff.' But the woman behind the desk seemed to have it under control. She was friendly and courteous and a gentleman stepped into the office to help her. Our site was huge, more room than previous campgrounds we've stayed at. Cable TV had more than enough channels and our Wi-Fi hookup, although 'low,' was adequate to get online and do whatever you had to do. We were next to the highway which didn't bother us and the occasional train went by. I was disappointed that I couldn't actually see any as they passed by. The trains weren't that bothersome, either. In all, we enjoyed our stay - Ausable Chasm which is about four miles south is an awesome place to visit. - Patches

Owners were very friendly, but was disappointed when a cigarette was lit while we were signing in. Sites were large, dirt and grass with concrete patio slabs. Our site was was not even close to level and trash was strewn around behind our campsite. Campground is rundown and needs some work, especially the roads. Restrooms, showers and laundry were extremely rundown and dirty. Cable TV and internet were good. We camped here three nights. - golplt

Sites are reasonable size and services generally functioned as advertised. Office is old, cramped, unclean, and filled with cigarette smoke. The park is noisier than we like. Pool filled on the weekends with children, highway noise behind our site, frequent trains day and night, and weekend karaoke music until 11 pm loud enough to hear inside every rig across the entire park. Laundry facilities consist of one working washer and a dryer that did not dry anything. Laundry building and restroom/bathhouse are old and deteriorated, open to all the elements and bugs, chicken-wire doors, if any, open wood slat floors, leaking water, dirty/moldy showers, no light or A/C in laundry building except for open door. Site electric posts have no fuse, an obvious safety concern when plugging in since we couldn't turn it off first. Will not stay here again. - revs2010

This is one great place if you are into nature as the park is on Lake Champlain and the Ausable River. Our site (#19) backed up to the lake with a view of Burlington, VT. The lake front has two beach areas and plenty of fishing, lake and river. The bad part for some of the campers was the Sat. night storm took down some trees and all the power lines, so campground was unattended with no water or toilets and showers. This was not a problem for us as we are self contained. The good thing was when rangers showed Monday morning and didn't charge us and refunded everyone in the park who had paid. Great state conservation area. Sites are very large and some will hold up to 40' RVS. - Mikeeg

We selected this site on the internet using the Reserve America web site. The web site indicated that the site we chose would take a 35ft motorhome. We were very disappointed with the site. Just enough room for the motorhome and not much room for anything else. And we were next to a swamp and almost living on top of our neighbors - who had two tents and lots of visitors. We booked for three nights but stayed only one. We tried to get another site but the campground was full and the campground staff were not very interested. We will not be staying in this campground again. We stayed in site 100. - sandgropers

Booked a three night stay the week before they closed for the season to take advantage of their "stay 3 nights/pay for 2" promotion. Still paid $57.00/night to park our Roadtrek in an open field. Water and electric only. Restrooms were immaculate but unheated. No paper towel dispenser. No hot water. Separate individual showers were also spotless and DID have hot water and good pressure. Nice people in the office (they moved our site at our request w/o hassle. But WILDLY overpriced for shoulder season campers. Probably nice in the summertime with facilities (clubhouse, pool, Par 3 course) open but we won't be back. - TennTrek

A lovely, well-maintained park adjacent to Lake Champlain. Friendly, efficient and knowledgable staff. There is a large seasonal community, but upscale and quite nice. The ONLY negative was the lousy wifi reception. Guests can get very good wifi at the nice and comfortable library (but it would be nicer in the comfort of the trailer). Our site was a back-in (most are) on a bluff over looking the park and lake/bay. It needed some leveling, but nothing major. - alm

This is my new place to stay. Everything about it was wonderful: large sites looking at Lake Champlain, beautiful pool, nice rec room, bands, dances, catered dinners, spotless bathrooms, friendly staff, excellent camp store, convenient to everything, great place for your dog. There is also a nine hole, par 3 golf course in the park. - mary mcmoo

The park is beginning to show some wear and tear. I can imagine in the 80's it was quite lovely. The couple that owns it are delightful. Many of the campers are seasonal Canadians who must come down frequently on the weekends from the Montreal area. It was extremely quiet during our stay during the weekdays. Sites are large with electric (plenty of amperage), sewer (worked perfectly) and water. There are several 150 square-foot cabins for rent too.
The location is nice if you are interested in getting into the High Peaks to do some hiking or sight seeing.
The campground has a little camp store that has some odds and ends, ice and firewood.
We have a well-equipped fifth wheel and I'm not big on amenities, so for us this was quite lovely. Don't expect luxury and you'll be just fine. - Johnboronkay

This is not a resort but if you want a true, quiet and peaceful experience under the tall Adirondack pines this is the place for you. Located only 5 easy miles from Exit 32 off I-87/Adirondack Northway. Nice pool, free WiFi, friendly owners. Pull-through & back-ins, FHU. Laundromat and propane sales. Small parts store. Nice tenting area as well.We stayed the entire Summer Season but rate reflects Passport America price per night. - Adirondack Jack

We had an excellent service, we liked the smell of the pines, it was quiet at the beginning of the season as we went during the week, we appreciated everything and we want to go back. We were there for 3 days, the cabin, the bathroom and everywhere was clean. The cabin is in front of the bathroom. My wife and I liked the cabin with the small fridge the microwave and the coffeemaker included. We played at the rebuild minigolf, it was fun and it is at no cost. The owners, a couple are friendly and do all they can to please the customers. - rfq0705
