Camping in Vermont is unlike any other camping experience you've had. The history and ecology of this small state make it a unique place to visit, yet it's also easy to plan a great vacation for anyone who's interested. The National Park Service has very high standards for their campgrounds: no dump sites, playgrounds, fire rings, drinking water, fire grates, trash piles, or open fires allowed. They also require that you stay at least 60 feet away from any wildlife or human habitation. Because they're state park property, your camping site will be surrounded by spectacular scenery and beautiful trees. The serenity of rolling hills, mountain peaks, clear streams, deep lakes, abundant wildflowers, and breathtaking falls will all leave your camper's breathless.
If you campground in Vermont, your best choice for a good location is undoubtedly the Tetons National Grassland. You'll find a campground right on the Tetons, within easy reach of downtown Montpelier. A favorite summer activity is to take a hiking trip up to the saddle hills around the Tetons. Within easy walking distance to the park's entrance, there's a beautiful campground with an open picnic shelter. The camping area itself offers all the makings of a good group camping area, with wooded hiking trails, picnic tables, fire rings, fire grates, and a clean restroom nearby.
Another popular campground in Vermont is the Windham Rock State Park. While there's a lot more to this popular mountain attraction than just a great hiking location, you'll be hard pressed to find a better camping experience than at Windham Rock State Park. With picnic tables, grills, fire rings, and shady pavilions, Windham Rock State Park is an excellent choice for a weekend getaway, or a week-long vacation.
