“Great little Corps of Engineers park”

Overall Rating

We visited Winhall Brook campground in September and really liked it. First of all, the rates, with the Federal Interagency pass is only $13 for water/electric -- they don't have the fees and exclusions that more and more federal sites are adding. The rate for non-utility sites, of which there are many, is a bit less.

We stayed in the water/electric loop which only has about 22 sites which are spaced ok but certainly closer than we'd like -- with level parking, lots of grass, and many larger trees. Next time, I think we would try for some non-electric sites along the brook which have nice grassy layouts and in some cases, great spacing.

The West River Rail Trail goes right through the park and is wonderful for walking or cycling. This place gets pretty full in the summer, understandably so, so reservations are a must. Off-season, there were a few vacant sites in our loop and only a couple of campers in the rest of the park. The camp host, Carol, has been volunteering there for a long time and is a great help. There is wifi at the registration center which was strong one time and anemic another. No ATT signal in the campground, like much of Vermont, but about a half-mile from the park, across from a small furniture manufacturer, there is a reasonable signal. Likely Verizon as well.

You will note in the guidance for the park that there is a narrow bridge into the south area, with vehicles limited to 42'. I don't think they worry about that much but I talked to several big rig owners who just unhitched their toad, folded in their mirrors, and crossed. One guy told me, "I've seen much worse in my 20 years of moving around the country." With a 25' trailer and truck, we were about 44' with the two vehicles and it was a piece of cake.

This is a place that we'll definitely want to visit again. Because of incoming storms, we left a day early and missed doing some of the things in the area that we had planned:
*Check out Jamaica State Park

  • Visit Winhall Deli in Bondville *Go to the Ball Mountain Dam *Geocache along West River

I noticed that several RV's used this as a stop on their way up through the state. It is right off Route 100, Vermont's scenic byway. Give it a try.

On our first night at Winhall Brook Campground, a crisp fall temperature taxed our puny electric heater so we cranked up the radiant heater in the early morning to take off the chill. Penny love...
