“Urban camping.....get the big rig sites”

Reviewed Sep 23, 2018

Overall Rating

There are mixed reviews on this campground and I can totally see why some people hate it but I'm reviewing my experience. We got in on the big rig back in side. The 1-16 sites are the best. followed by the 106-116 sites. If I could not get 1 of these sites, I would probably not stay here again. The rest of the sites are extremely crowd... more

“Not a Great Camping Experience”

Reviewed Aug 20, 2018

Overall Rating

Everything is relative. I am from the midwest, so I guess I've been spoiled. East coast camping leaves so much to be desired and North Beach is no exception. Variety of sites (primative to full hook-up). I'll speak to water/electric sites. Most of these sites are way too small! It is somewhat akin to camping at a tailgate or Nascar eve... more

“Wanted to leave as soon as I arrived”

Reviewed Jul 06, 2018

Overall Rating

The campsites are way too close together so there is no privacy. Noise level is high since neighbors are practically in your lap. Staff was very friendly and helpful and location on bike path great, but the overcrowding negated anything positive. They need to make the sites larger and have fewer of them. I love nature and peace... more

“Fabulous urban campground close to the beach!”

Reviewed May 10, 2018

Overall Rating

We really enjoyed our three-day, two-night stay here with our dog. There was so much to do that we never even drove into town. The campground is not on the beach but is about a one minute walk from the public beach, with great swimming and kayak rentals available in season. We fell asleep listening to the waves lap the shore of Lake Ch... more

“Close to the beach!”

Reviewed Oct 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Some of the sites are definitely close together. Great mix of grass and tree cover - our site was a 60 second walk to the beautiful beach. Free wifi is a huge bonus but there's definitely more foot traffic through here because of the access to the beach and rec path (which is also awesome). It's a 15 minute bike ride to the downtown/Ch... more

“Wonderful location, walk to the beach, close driving to downtown, need some more speed bumps”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2017

Overall Rating

When visiting Burlington, this is where you need to try to stay. It was suggested to us by friends and it did not disappoint. Getting there is a bit tough because you have to drive through downtown Burlington and potentially pass the University of Vermont - so just a lot of people around. The campground is basically the entrance... more

“Not safe”

Reviewed Feb 25, 2017

Overall Rating

I absolutely love Burlington, but this is basically a parking lot. Sites are very close together, it's very loud, and there's no privacy. Worse, the campground is the way cyclists and pedestrians leave a trail system, so a bunch of non-campground guests will walk through your campsite, and bikes speed by very fast, at all hours. Needle... more

...though I honestly wasn't looking very hard and am not sure I even know what they look like. That said, this was still a great camping experience! I even pitched a tent. In the outdoors!
