Camping in Vermont


Vermont offers a variety of camping experiences from pitching a tent deep in the forest to parking an RV, complete with satellite dish, in a private campground with a pool, recreational hall, and the like.

Thirty-nine of the 52 Vermont State Parks offer camping. These parks are a real find, have wonderful facilities, and are beautifully maintained.

There are nine Green Mountain National Forest Campgrounds. These sites tend to be more rustic, providing a close-up view of Vermont's beautiful woodlands. Backwoods campers may also make camp anywhere in the Green Mountain National Forest as long as they are more than 200' from a road, trail, and water. It's suggested you contact one of the District Offices of the U. S. Forest Service beforehand. They are very accommodating, and will be happy to provide you with free maps and other meaningful information.

The Vermont Campground Association Web site lists details for each of more than eighty member private campgrounds, along with booking information and a guide to download or order.

For more details about the facilities offered by both State and private Campgrounds search the Vermont Travel Planner. For a FREE copy of the Vermont Campground Guide contact the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation at 802-241-3655 or order online.
