“Heavily wooded state park”

Reviewed Jul 12, 2017

Overall Rating

We really enjoy more open spaces and a view of the sky. A clear unobstructed sky also helps with our solar system.

This state park is well maintained but too wooded for us. Very few spots have and unobstructed view of the sky. Most sites are deep within the trees. If you're counting on solar, it's going to be a bit of a challenge.

The road into the state park is a mix of pavement and hard pack. Even the pavement looks like it had a rough winter with large potholes. As you approach the park, there is a pretty steep incline. Yes, the park is at the top of the hill.

We were in the A loop. Bathroom had not been remodeled and is showing its ages. Park cleans every site after someone checks out (11:00). Park rakes each site and cleans the fire pit.

Sites are hardback and a little uneven. We had plenty of space between our site and the neighbors. There is a lot of coming and going in this park. Lots of tents. I would NOT rate this Park s big rig friendly. Our rig is 30' and I don't believe it can handle much larger. There is a small dump and fresh water just past the entrance.

“Beautiful, wooded state park campground with private, secluded sites, beach access, a boat launch and trails for both hiking and biking. Great location to explore Waterbury, Stowe and an easy drive to Burlington.”

We stayed four nights at Little River and used it as a base to explore nearby Waterbury, Stowe, and Burlington. We loved this park. The campground is about 3 ½ miles off Hwy 2 on a sometimes paved, sometimes gravel road – but it’s worth the effort! The campground is large with two major loops (B loop was closed after Labor Day) – both loops have a mix of sites that could accommodate large RVs, tenters, and some awesome lean-to sites with river views.

The staff were friendly, helpful and seemed to be always busy. Their care and efforts showed in the immaculate, well maintained sites, clean bathrooms and beautifully tiled showers. (Really, they looked like something out of a nice home – other than the bit where you have to put in the quarters. Lol). Even late in the season they had flower containers blooming by the bathrooms.

The park is deep in the woods and the sites are exceptionally well spaced and private. All of the ones we looked at had nice shade and we had no trouble getting level. Just don’t count on using your solar or satellite here! There is a dump station and water, but no hook-ups. In addition to the playground there is a small nature center, swimming areas for each loop, and a boat launch.

We chose Little River Campground for its proximity to the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory. That was fun, but it turns out there is a whole lot more going on around here. Don’t miss the cider donuts at Cold Hollow Cider Mill and excellent beer and food at the Blackback Tavern in Waterbury. The pub nachos and smoked bacon sweet corn mac & cheese may require a return trip to Vermont. In Burlington, we enjoyed the Island Line Trail (a 28-mile rail to trail) that extends for 3 ½ miles on a marble causeway into Lake Champlain. Lots of mountain bike trails in the area too.

We had only 2 bars of Verizon 3G unboosted and that wasn’t stable.
