16 RV Parks near Waterbury, Vermont

Roads are a little tight, some sites a little tight getting into. We meet another couple here to go to Ben and Jerrys. A little for off the beaten path but a good stay. - goldsp8

Vermont has got to be one of the prettiest states. Little River State Park is a beautiful park near Waterbury, in the middle of the state, next to Waterbury Reservoir. The campground is dry camping. Sites are generally large enough for smaller rigs, and a few sites are big enough for big rigs. Our site (site 4) was interesting to get into, we had to back around a corner and avoid some trees. But once we were in the site, it was level, and there was plenty of room to stretch out. The campground is heavily forested, and most sites are pretty dark. We weren't able to get our satellite radio to work. I would assume satellite dishes would have the same problem. Sites are dirt. There was a major rainstorm while we were there, that caused flooding all over the northeast. During and shortly after the storm, our campsite was a lake. Within a few hours, though, the water had drained through the sandy soil, and the storm might as well have never happened. The roads were the same way. The road leading to the park is dirt (but suddenly becomes paved at the entrance to the park). After the storm, there was no evidence of any problem from the water. Our favorite part of the stay was kayaking on the lake. The campground rents kayaks for very reasonable prices. On a nice day, it's the perfect way to experience Vermont. There's also lots of hiking, and mountain biking. - AnnP

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

What a dump -- muddy, unlevel, and tall weeds. The owner is a JERK and is either a liar or just ignorant. We see why this place gets such bad reviews. The only reason we considered staying there is that it would be close for a family visit. We pulled in and told the owner we wanted to stay two nights and needed to dump on the way in. He said that it would be $30 per night for water/electric 30amp plus $15 to dump. I told the owner that in over four years of fulltiming we have never been asked to pay a dump fee if we stayed at a campground. He said that it is normal to charge a fee in the area. I didn't believe him and when I checked nine other campgrounds in the area, none charge for dumping if you stay with them. I see why the place was empty and junky. The owner's strange business plan seems to be working for him, but not for his customers. This guy said it bought the campground a couple of years ago. Too bad he didn't have the previous owner teach him something about running a business. - dehdave

This is definitely a no-frills campground, but it gets high marks for easy access, wonderful owners, and convenient location near Sugarbush Resort, where we attended a wedding. It's pick your own site (there are no numbers) and pay at the Mobil gas station/general store (at the campground). We paid a weekly rate of $160. The 30 amp service worked great. Water pressure was just ok. Dump station fine. We needed a couple of leveling pads, but all in all, we were very happy and secure here and would stay here again. - Jane Berry

Nice campground with really friendly staff. The sites are grass and are close together. We had no trees so no problem with getting satellite service. We had very weak TMobile service. There is free wifi available throughout Stowe. I ended up going to the library and working during the day. It worked out very well. - Chuck Shrader

Location, location, location. We have a 40 MH so our options are limited, and this was the perfect base camp for our week in the Stowe area. For us, this campground was perfect because we weren't there to "camp". It's not nestled in the woods, it is an open grassy area but there are more trees than some other reviews have indicated. The openness allows for beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. We had a level spot. Some sites are closer than others, and we were pretty tight with the motorhomes on either side of us. But we didn't spend much time there, so it wasn't a big deal to us. The campground sits on the main road, but it's pretty quiet at night (except for road construction that happened to be going on at night while we were there). Making reservations and a couple follow up phone calls, plus check in, were maybe the most pleasant experience we've ever had - very friendly! We would definitely stay here again. - Roaming Together

This place was a great base for our trip to Stowe. Great experience from reservation to checkout. They had a water issue while we were there and tracked us down to let us know. Best cable service of any place we have stayed. This is a no frills place, if you are looking for events and activities go elsewhere. But if you are looking for a good base camp with good basic service this is a great place. We will be back the next time we pass through. - brehmca

We had a spacious, long, level pull-through site here and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. However, it is mostly seasonal and more like a poorly kept mobile home park than a campground. The laundry was newly renovated with clean, well maintained machines and the restrooms are supposedly slated for renovation. Access to the park from I-89 is easy on, easy off. In respect to the price and no sewer hookups and the general condition of the grounds we would not return to this campground. - Damon Travelers

This is a park with lots of noisy, rowdy seasonals. The sites are very close together. Not sure if there are adults that work in the campground as I never saw one. Each time I went to the camp store, it was two teen aged boys that helped me, this included our checking in. When we arrived, I went to the store to find the door locked (even though it was in the middle of their “open” time). There was an “intercom” button that I guess alerted the boys by walkie talkie. I am not sure as they never answered my “hello” they just showed up on a tractor, with walkie talkies in hand. I don’t know how well the store was stocked, as I felt I was an inconvenience to the boys being in the store. You are issued an access card to reenter the park and if you arrive back later than mid-night, you are not allowed back in and have to park you vehicle and walk back to your site. I assume this is to keep light levels down, but this does not prevent the seasnonals from driving around the campground after midnight, than happed while we were there. The Wi-Fi worked fine with a nominal fee, $2.00 per day. We will not stay here again. - Papotvin-VT

This is a big, bustling park with lots of seasonals. Everyone seems to follow the rules, however, because it was quiet by 11 PM. There's a nice family restaurant across the street from the RV park. - Deb344

This site - RV dealership - no longer allows overnight camping. - SailorGolf
Oct 2012 - $30.00
This is a nice RV park if you want to stay in this area. As stated in another review the park is owned by the RV dealership next door so some of the sites are filled with overflow from the lot. The host was great and made us feel welcome and let us pick the site that worked best for us. The road noise is fairly loud as it is right by the highway. Water hookups are quite a bit away if you have a mid-rig connection. We would stay here again. The Bragg Farm Sugarhouse is worth a visit nearby. - Sixontheroad

The park is next to US Route 2. Road noise was pretty bad during the day but mostly ended by 6 pm. Bart, the park manager, gave us excellent service - above and beyond the call of duty! Our toad had a bad wheel bearing and Bart followed me to the repair shop (Bill's Auto Repairs) and took me back to the park - a distance of some 25 miles. The shop owner came out the park to pick me up and take me back to the shop to pick up my car. The people of Vermont exemplify the meaning of "Southern hospitality". Friendly and helpful to the point of making you feel like family. - davedopp

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

Definitely geared more toward tent campers, but you could definitely make it work with a smaller RV. Our site was very large, grassy, and well-shaded, with beautiful wildflowers along the perimeter, and a babbling brook running along one side. However, it was definitely not geared toward RVs. Took quite a bit of finagling to back in, and the electric box was on the "wrong" side, so we had our door facing the outer perimeter of the site, and had to walk around the camper to get to the picnic table, fire, etc. Was also quite a hike to the bath house, but we knew that going in. That all said, it was a beautiful, peaceful, spacious site, and we were able to make it work. Saw a few larger sites in the field section, which would have been easier to back into, but none of them had shade or electric. We knew the trade-offs we were making in order to have those things when booking, and were pleased with our site choice overall. This is a very small campground on a private farm, and while the setting is beautiful, there aren't many amenities. We knew that going in, and we weren't expecting the Taj Mahal. However, I was still a little taken aback by some of the facilities. Bath house was, um, quite primitive. It is solar-powered, but situated in a pretty wooded area. Was very dim inside, even when we visited during the middle of the day. There were 2 toilet stalls with plywood doors, one shower stall, and one small sink (ran out of hand soap halfway through our stay, and owner added some water to make it last a bit longer). Definitely brought me back to my days of summer camp :) While quite buggy, and not very clean overall, everything was in working order, and we were fine using it during our stay. There is a small, cute wooden playset near the bath house that could also use some TLC (one swing broken, huge wasp nest under slide). That all said, you'd be hard-pressed to find a campground in a more beautiful, peaceful, quintessentially Vermont setting. - Jenventola

We stayed in campsite #37. It was pretty level with reasonable privacy. This park is meticulously maintained by an extremely energetic and helpful staff. The beach is great as is the climb to the fire tower. - Ronahue

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

$40 per night but we averaged $33 for a 3 night stay with the Passport America discount. W/E50. This campround is an open grass field beside a little brook with nice spacing between sites. You must cross over a one lane bridge with a 24,000 pound limit to reach the campround. The road by the office and through the campround is awful with deep holes. It appears they have recently installed new water and electric hookups. We stayed here since we were Passport America members and would still stay here again. - Teddi2

Roads to the park are good, the road into the park has a narrow bridge with a weight limit of 27,000 lbs, but we went across it in our Class A as we had already turned onto the road and had no where else to go! The roads in the park are rutted so go slow. There was no check in as we paid in advanced. We did get led to our site but there was some confusion as to what sites were 30 or 50 amp. Sites are very unlevel, you can see the slopes and rolls in the ground. We ended up parking parallel to the hook-ups across a couple of sites - per their instructions - as there was no way to level otherwise. We had water and 50 amp electric, and there is a dump station on site. There was a fire ring and they brought us a picnic table when we requested one. The park is clean and very pretty, the grass really needed to be cut. There are lots of trials for hiking, one that takes you to the Rail Bed Trail and along another creek. There is no WiFi and our Verizon signal was good. No on site laundry. Some road noise but not too bad. Would love to give this a full star rating because it is such a nice place with the trails and river, but the unlevel sites and no WiFi, make that impossible. We stayed July 30 - August 6, 2018 and paid $28.57 a night with no discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

This park had heavily-potholed entry roads, traffic noise and no Wi-Fi. Our 30-amp, no sewer site delivered only 109 volts of electricity. The few spots with 50 amp and sewer were occupied by long-term customers. A bridge on the only access road had a 27,000 pound limit, a legalism frequently ignored to judge by the Class A motor homes in the park. Our satellite dish had no problems. Verizon phone/internet service was spotty. - Mtmoi

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 4 nights in a site for big rigs. This is an adult only park. This park is well maintained with beautiful landscaping. The park is definitely going for the green look which is why all sites consist of grass. The owner's are very protective of this grass, so the rules state no rugs, mats or anything that might harm the grass. Otherwise, we would have used our screen tent which would have been nice protection from all the mosquitoes living in the grass. Instead, we were only able to sit outside for short periods of time before the swarms of mosquitoes drove us inside. Dog owner's beware there are rules about where you can walk your dog. No dogs allowed near the office and the owner's home, they will mark this area on the park map. But that still leaves plenty of areas where you can walk your dog. Mostly long term residents here, but all sites are clean and well maintained. No satellite reception too many large trees. This park is located in a quiet area so if you're looking for quiet and no kids, this is the place for you. - JDC10

A fastidiously maintained property with a carpet of beautiful grass. No carpets allowed on it. Cable TV has been removed but we got a sat friendly site. #15. Wifi was excellent. Faculties were clean. Will stay again. - Geodoc

Nice quite park with spacious pull-through site. There are low branches over interior roads. There is a very steep one mile stretch leading to the park but it's a good road. - HaveDieselWillTravel
