The friendly crackle and smoky aroma of a campfire, the plaintive song of loons on the lake under a night sky pierced with stars, the flavor of s’mores and other traditional treats, and the camaraderie that comes with evenings spent together beyond four walls combine to create the enveloping sense of wonder a camping trip offers.
Thirty-nine of Vermont's 55 beautifully maintained state parks offer staffed camping facilities, including primitive wilderness or remote-access sites, cozy lean-tos and cabins, or RV sites, with a variety of things to do in the surrounding areas. 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. Travelers can find the comforts of home at glamping sites, often with amenities like internet access, movie nights, and bathroom and kitchen facilities.
