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. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Dakin Farms store has a decade old tradition for great maple syrup and Vermont cheddar cheese as well as a bunch of other stuff. Plus free samples of everything so you can try lots of varieties before you buy.

Not cheap: but delicious! About 2 miles south of the campground on the right side. Go past it and make the first turn to end up in back of the store with good space for a long rig.

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. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

If you have a chance, visit the Birds of Vermont Museum in Huntington. It is a real treasure!!!!! The birds are amazing and works of art. Wonderful staff. One of the highlights of a two month trip.

Only CG in the area open all year. Very convenient location & lots to do in the area! As others have said you are close to your neighbors, but trees give privacy. It is set well back from the road and so quiet at night. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

We went to Shelburne farms which is open to dogs after 1 Nov until the spring & loved it, beautiful estate set right on the Lake with beautiful fields to hike around! Check out on site bakery & cheese shop.

Check out Higher Ground if you are into local music.

We took our 32 ft 5 er on the Essex-Charlotte Ferry on our way to Old Forge NY & was a beautiful scenic ride.

The campsite was OK; it was good in size and there were trees around us which made it feel private enough. I don't think this campsite is pretty enough to stay for a week, but I do think it's absolutely great if you want to enjoy the city and everything in the area which is gorgeous. Perfect spot to spend a few nights.

The staff were nice.

The bathrooms and showers were free and clean.

Overall, perfect for us. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed just 1 night. Sites are tight, access streets are narrow. Right in town so convenient to resturants & attractions. They offered discount to Shelburne Museum which we visited and enjoyed. On divided highway so can't turn left into or out of campground. If staying in Shelburne again I would probably stay here since not much else around. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

We almost did not stay here because of prior poor reviews. But for visiting the wonderful Shelburne Museum and Burlington, it was the perfect location. We found this campground typical of many in New England - a bit cramped and a few too many trees although they gave us a site that facilitated connecting our roof top satellite dish. There were a few mobile homes where people seemed to be staying full time mixed with seasonals mixed with transients like us. Because it is located on a divided highway, getting into the park from the north was tricky. Once we found the special U-turn lane on the right hand side of Rt 7, it was doable. It would have been nice to know ahead of time. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

The Shelburne Museum is like no other museum we have ever visited. Allow two days for all the exhibits both inside and outside. We enjoyed a boat ride on Lake Champlain from Burlington and a rails to trails bike bath that included a ferry just north of town.

This is camping in a mud hole. The campsites are cramped with electric and water on the wrong side. We had to run our electric and water hose under our rig. The Wi-Fi worked OK and the cable TV was fair. It was raining throughout or stay and water and mud were everywhere including just outside our door. We could not exit without walking in the mud and water. I expected this in Alaska but not in Vermont. We would not stay here again. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

Rate this as a 0. Place is a dump. A seedy trailer park with overflow as an RV park. Weeds were ankle deep. Trees not cut back. Electric was marginal at best. Had to look in the bushes to find electrical box. No security. Woke up to find an old man searching thru sites for cans. And was there with a Tour Group. Would not stay there. Walmart parking lot is a 10 compared to this place. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

This is the second time we have stayed here. The first was in the fall one year, and this time it was mid-July during a heat wave. On check-in the person told us we had a choice between two sights, and he told us which one had the most shade. I don't know how he thought this one had shade, and the one we didn't take was completely shady, but once we were hooked up, we didn't want to move. I will say the people here are very nice, and I like that now they will let you leave your pets in your RV while you visit the area, as long as you leave a cell # with them. So many parks do not allow this, and I don't know how they expect you to visit their area and contribute to their economy! Our site was wide enough for our big rig with three slides, and we had enough length, too. The pool looked very nice, although we did not use it. Lots of people seemed to be enjoying it, though. The roads here are some kind of white dirt, and it is always extremely dusty. This also tracks in not only on pets' feet, but also on their coats, and then it is all over your floor and furniture. Everyone here was very nice and friendly and it is such a short drive to lots of things to do and even into Burlington, VT. I would stay here again if in the area.

Trashy motel up front, but campsites are very good. Power good, water good, sewer a little far off to the side, took 10+' of sewer hose. Showers dated but very clean with plenty of hot water. We would stay again if in area. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

Nice park with friendly and helpful staff. Good power, cable and WiFi. Sites are compact but large enough to be comfortable. We had a heavy rain and the site and roads dried up quickly. Convenient to area attractions and the staff was helpful with information and discounts. We will stay again the next time we are in the area. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

Shelburne Campground, Shelburne, Vermont Site 11. Stopped here while camping in Vermont right after the floods closed many of the state parks in the central part of the state. $36 for water,electric, Wi-Fi, cable TV and full hookups are available. There are two pools, play area, volleyball, tether ball, horseshoe pits, store, restaurant, motel, fire rings, firewood, propane, laundry, showers, store. This is an older park with over 60 sites and our site was a backin with some gravel and grass. Chick-in was quick and the owners are very nice and informative. They will give you discounts for the Shelburne Museum which is worthwhile. This is located right on route 7 just a few miles below Burlington and on route 7 with all of it’s attractions. Museums, winery, shops, gas, restaurants, breweries etc. Great location. We would return because of its location! We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

Really have a problem giving this campground a rating. We had a pull-through, 50amp, nice size, level site right in front of the office. But coming in to the park, you drive by a very seedy looking motel, some vacant RV units just parked helter-skelter and then some charming cabins with unsavory looking characters sitting on the steps. The campground does have a lot of seasonals. But the real problem was vehicles in and out all night long. Our site gave us full view of the only ingress and egress to the campground. I had a sleepless night so was up reading and couldn't believe the amount of traffic at 3am. A vehicle would come in and a few minutes later leave. One car came in and obviously saw me looking out the window, slammed on the brakes, made a U-turn and sped out. Then around 10 that morning, 2 police cars are at the office with a lot of paperwork and then go in different directions into the campground. And every day after for the week we were there, a police car was driving through the campground. Our thought of course was illegal drug activity. Who knows? The workers there were pleasant but not overly friendly. The laundry was 2 old rusted washing machines ($2 a load) and 2 dryers (10 mins for $.25). Real small loads for $2, but they worked. Really feel this campground is way over priced. Even when we just pulled in and hadn't experienced the traffic we felt it was over priced for what we were seeing. We just did not feel safe there and made sure we left nothing sitting out. Not sure if we would stay there again. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

All the parks in this area are way overpriced. We were going to stay a week but left after two nights because our back window backed up to an old rusted out trailer with flat tires. Buildings were old, many dilapidated trailers and motorhomes, and generally very rundown. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.
