MAKE VERMONT MEMORIES WITH THE FAMILY THIS SEASON

Thirty-nine of the 55 Vermont State Parks offer camping. Due to COVID-19, state parks are not opening until June 26th. These parks have wonderful facilities, and are beautifully maintained. Leave no trace in the wilderness, set up camp at a lean-to, or maybe "camp out" in an RV with all the comforts of home.

Vermont also has 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 camp anywhere in the Green Mountain National Forest as long as they are more than 200' from a road, trail, or water. It's suggested you contact one of the district offices of the U. S. Forest Service before you head out.
