“Great spot for relaxation and paddling.”
Reviewed Oct 14, 2015
We have been here two or three times during the off-season, usually in late Spring. There are many sites along Lake Groton that are lean-tos or too small for our 25 foot trailer but we like the four or five sites (43 is our favorite) up on the higher ground.
This campground gets busy on weekends and during the peak of summer since you can launch a speedboat on the lake from the ramp. It has a reputation for being more of a "party park" than New Discovery or Ricker but we have not encountered problems. There are onsite hosts and a fair number of park staff.
Vermont parks have no services per se and most of their sites are for tents, pop-up campers, or lean-tos so there are few sites for large RVs and not that many for our mid-sized 25 footer. There is no cell signal for many miles but a decent wifi connection at the office.
Many families spend a week or two at the park, often reserving the same site year after year. There are an amazing collection of tents, tarps, and lean-tos and more than not, several generations camping together. It’s good to see kids out on their bikes or just framming around in the park – and they seem to get tired and go to bed early.
The park is open from May 15 to Labor Day Weekend. Make sure to have reservations for all weekends and mid-summer periods.
