“Pretty forested boondocking on a nice Vermont lake.”

Reviewed Jul 26, 2015

Overall Rating

Ricker Pond SP is like essentially all Vermont parks -- aimed more at tent and lean-to campers than RV's. There are no hook-ups nor is there any internet -- wifi or 4G. (The Groton Free library has a password protected Wifi that is on all the time)

There are only about five sites where we can fit our twenty-five foot Airstream in.

It's a pretty little body of water and it is easy to see why so many folks, many who have camped all over Vermont, come back. If you have a larger RV, there are several sites up at the next campground, Stillwater, which can handle large units. You'll need a generator or solar system -- it's boondocking at about $20 a day.

There's a $1 a day pet fee at all state parks and a $7 reservation fee.

Showers take quarters -- $75 for 6 minutes is more than enough. The restrooms in generally have a Boy Scout camp feel to them although they are kept clean and are quite adequate.
