“Very small and rustic. Beautiful setting; best for tent camping.”
Site Details: We stayed in site #2 - one of two sites with electric. The 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 nor 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.
Facilities/Overall Campground: 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.
Surrounding Area/Attractions: Not much to do in the immediate vicinity, with the exception of the beautiful nearby Bristol Falls. The town of Bristol is about a 10-minute drive, with some cute shops and other modern conveniences. Waterbury is about an hour’s drive north, where you’ll find Cold Hollow Cider Mill, Ben & Jerry’s, etc.
Overall, this is a great place to stay if you’re looking for a nice, quiet, rustic camping experience in a gorgeous setting. Definitely geared more toward tent campers, but you could make it work with a smaller RV.
