This is a beautiful campground with sites fully grassed. Water, sewer, electric, and cable all work great. Laundry, bathrooms, and showers are a disgrace. We use our bathrooms in our RV but the tenters do not have that option. The owner was a rude, unkind man both on the phone and in person. We would stay here again if in the area. It is so handy to attractions nearby. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Abrupt Reception - felt unwelcome even though sites readily available (we had not booked and arrived at 5 pm) Grounds very pleasant but facilities old and in need of a good clean and/or renovations - would not be inclined to return. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is in a large grassy area. Sites are grassy with some having a bit of gravel. Roads are gravel. Water/sewer/electric & cable worked very well. We could not get WIFI at the site at all and our Verizon Mobile Hotspot did not work very well. The location is perfect for touring Stowe and Waterbury. The sites seem to be close together, but the owner places you so that you have excellent space between units. There is plenty of room for maneuvering. The restrooms and showers need some serious attention, updating and deep cleaning. We liked it here and would stay again. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were here after the summer time rush and found the owner very helpful and friendly. It is located behind a big red barn and the Nichols Lodge. We did not have any trouble with the power. Great location for seeing the fall colors and area. Most sites are on grass with some gravel. We did not use the restrooms. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Camp Ground is OK. One water tap shared for two sites. WiFi is at lodge next door. Owner is an awful drunk who is rude and seems to like giving wrong directions and then turns the sign (which faces the wrong direction anyway) off when you are coming in the dark. Told us to go up highway 10 and turn at the big red barn. It's on highway 100 and there are at least 5 big red barns -- it's Vermont after all -- and its not a barn, it's the Nichols Lodge. Lodges are for people, barns are for animals. There is a big Nichols Lodge sign - so he could have said, turn in at Nichols Lodge and we are behind it. We saw Nichols Lodge every time we drove by, but again ITS NOT A BARN. So, I have to assume he does it on purpose. And he seemed to lose phone connection whenever we asked for pricing -- and never would even give it to us in the office. So, we don't know what our options might have been. But it was then 10 PM, after we looked for it for over an hour, then unhooked the car and spent another 45 minutes looking for it in the car. I would never stay here again. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Lousy restrooms, would not use; in bad need of update or at least cleaning daily, not monthly. Power suspect; AC wouldn't fully power up, but did on our generator, however. Not worth half the price charged. Close to Stowe and Waterbury only pluses here. Will not return. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

The is a wonderful spot for visiting Stowe and the surrounding area, very close to town and many attractions and restaurants. Would have given it a 10 but the bathrooms are quite dated and while clean, it's not a facility that matches the delightful setting. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful but very old with minimal repairs being done. Grass sites which are very muddy in the rain although probably good in dry weather. Hookups are awful, need extensions for everything if it will work at all. No Wi-Fi, bathrooms are old and not maintained. This place is a disaster. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground. Please don't let my low score scare you away. I only downgraded it because the staff is not exactly warm. Maybe this is a tough time to make a buck in the campground business, but it sure would be nice to feel more welcome when you do come. Don't take it personally if you encounter what I did. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and the Ben and Jerry's Factory down the street. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, grassy campground with huge sites, many on the river. Extremely clean. Very close to Stowe, but no activities for children or families. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice small simple campground for the purpose of seeing the sites around Stowe, VT. Had the nicest mowed grass of any campground I ever stayed at. The bathhouse was very dated, but clean. Pool was very clean. The small river at the back of the property was fun to wade through. Other reviewers said something about the owners not being too friendly. I would agree. I tried talking to the owner on why his website was hard to find. He said because it was a "private" website for people who paid to view on a regional Intranet site. I tried to explain that if I Googled "Stowe Vermont Campground" his site would not come up in the search results. They had 20, 30 and 50 amp service. I thought the over night fee for 30 amp service was a little high at $40, but the Stowe area is pricey to start with. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I like this park. It is small but the sites are large and spacious. The site hookups are side to side where one unit backs in and one unit drives in. This works well but you are very close on the hookup sides. The playground is old but looks well kept. The grass is meticulously kept. The owners are on site and are typical Vermonters, very, very nice but of few words. Don't take it as being mean, its just the way the oldtimers are. I will stay here again.

Good location to explore the area around Stowe. Side by side hook ups with adequate room. Not much in the way of trees for shade but sites are generally grass and reasonably level. Well cared for but not fancy. We would camp here again. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Open sites, great for Fall but not much shade for summer. Easy in and out. Great base for touring Stowe area. 50 amp sites filled up but plenty of room other-wise. Well cared for but not fancy. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.
