We stayed in campsite #37. It was pretty level with reasonable privacy. This park is meticulously maintained by an extremely energetic and helpful staff. The beach is great as is the climb to the fire tower. - Ronahue

Elmore State Park is huge with over 36 square miles of land. There is a beautiful lake in the park which is a walk away from the campground with the Elmore Mountains in the background. The campground is laid out in two big loops and many of the sites are huge and very private. There are 45 tent and RV sites and 15 lean-to’s which Vermont seems to have in most of their state park. Restrooms are clean and the showers are pay. At the lake one can canoe and swim and they just built a new building with bathrooms and a lobby with rocking chairs, stone fireplace and picnic tables. This was a one night stopover for us while traveling Vermont in the Fall. Rangers were very nice and we would return but there are no hookups. The town is close to Stowe, Waterbury and Montpelier and is a popular tourist destination in the summer. - gsnakehill

No trees or foliage to separate sites. Road noise is was a little loud. We asked for 50 amp site, they said there was none available, but we watched a site available the entire time. Very srict on some issues. We aked if we could return in 2 days and pay to dump our tanks and tgey said no. I thought that was a little strict, since we had stayed there 4 nites. - TBWard

We stayed 14 days at Mountain View in a 40' RV. This is an incredibly beautiful park. The campground is nestled in a valley in the Green Mountains and is flanked by the Lamoille River. The grounds are almost park like and are in incredible condition. There are lots of native wildflowers that are evident in every nook and cranny. The new owners have done an incredible job of getting the park in excellent condition and are a true pleasure to deal with. The park is easy to navigate and the sites are nice and wide and grass covered so no dust or mud. Our dogs loved the river which was wadable and the bottom covered with beautiful river stones. The amenities are nice including two pools, hot tub, kids area, pool table and very nice library that has books and dvds for checkout. The utilities are good but be warned if you are in a larger rv to call ahead early as 50 amp sites can be hard to come by. This is a fabulous area to launch your Stowe, Smugglars Notch, Von Trapp resort and brewery and the Lamoille River Rail Trail. There is great OTA tv reception. The only negative is that because the campground is a bit out of town cell reception on ATT is impossible and Verizon can be utilized up towards the office. The wifi is feast or famine. At times we had very fast speeds and at other times the wifi was useless, which seemed to be related to the number of campers in the park. All in all this is a fabulous park and we would certainly return if our travels pass this way again. - tomcotten

This campground was nice and the staff and owners were super friendly. The location was good and on a beautiful river. The camp store is great. The bathhouse was ok, not great and not bad just ok. The sites are again OK. I personally would like more shade and space. Our site was nice and grassy, but too close to the site on our right. The first night was great as no one was there. The second and third night we had neighbors and they liked to play music late and we have a hybrid and like to sleep. Too close. I know they are making improvements on the place and we would definitely stay here again, especially since we sold our hybrid for wall and a more sound proof sleep. - wesmac68

Maplewoods CG has a great view of the mountains! I was parked in the second row, so I can't speak for those further back. This was the most expensive campground I stayed in for this years travels and was quite surprised when I read the paperwork after checking in stating if you use your AC or a space heater there will be an additional charge of $3.00 a day. Also, they wanted to charge for the WIFI that doesn't reach any distance. There are two bathhouses with flush toilets, but the showers are coin operated. There is a laundry facility as well, I didn't use it so I can't tell you how much it cost. There is NO privacy what so ever in the CG, but the seasonal campers seemed nice enough. The CG is very conveniently located for all of the "tourist" spots, Stowe, Smugglers Notch, etc... and only an hour away from Burlington. A plus for me was being able to have packages shipped to their address! - NanetteLkc

Our site had insufficient electrical power to run both of our air conditioners at most times. At all times we had to watch what electrical items were simultaneously turned "on". Nice spacing (wider than a typical commercial campground); and no visual privacy between sites. In general, the view from the campground is pretty (i.e., hay field and mountains in the distance). A small number of sites have that view. Roads and sites are packed dirt with some gravel. There was often a lot of dust in the air. The campground was typically quiet. We had numerous undesirable surprises upon our arrival - they tried to charge us a higher site cost, beyond what they quoted us for our specific site. We learned about surcharges (e.g., $3 daily charge to use AC or heat) and they not only charge for their wifi, but it is only available within 300 feet of their office building. Our bill was incorrect and it took MANY conversations for them to realize they made an error (i.e., on our bill, they applied the 6% sales tax to the site rate and then additionally applied the 6% sales tax again to the total bill). None of the information that surprised us was available on their website; shared verbally (even when relevant questions were asked, such as confirming that electric usage was included in the site cost); nor was the information included when they sent us our reservation confirmation. Note: Our Verizon and AT&T data and cell coverage was weak at times and sometimes non-existent. AT&T's data coverage was typically a little better, when Verizon's coverage was weak or non-existent. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

This campground is sitting on top of the hill overlooking the mountains! It's a very clean and quiet campground! They have an in-ground pool, playroom next to the pool, and a playground for kids! It's one of my favorite campgrounds, hands down! The owners are very nice and very accommodating. They put on horseshoe tournaments and bean bag tournaments, race pools, DJ at the pool on certain weekends and they also have weekends where people bring a dish to share together. Their store is fun to shop in and they have great ice cream! They have been building a pavilion building and they have expanded the park with more sites. Their sites are all great and the sizes are big too! - Debbie_mimi

The good.. great location! Close to Stowe and Waterbury. Great internet!
The bad.... Buddy sites, so you have to share your space with strangers.
All the water and electric sites are right on the busy highway and are not large enough for big buses. Seems they
know you will get there and have to upgrade to water, electric and sewer.
They charge you a $10 change fee for any reservation adjustments, no matter how far in advance of your stay. - Fran_Dawn

This is a beautiful little park in a great location. The family who owns it does a great job making you feel welcome. Our site was a pull in forward site with a great view of a grassy area. - Admiral II

Friendly owner. Parking lot CG, but looks like owners are making improvements. Everything worked great. Very nice main bathroom, but second bathhouse still needed work. Some spots are close together, but overall is a nice place. Laundry consisted of one washer/dryer, but were brand new. Very close to Ben & Jerry's. - RobertN

Smugglers Notch State Park, Stowe, Vermont September 15 & 16 $20 no hookups. This campground was moved in 2003 from across the street so the bathrooms are new and very clean but only one shower (pay). There is only about 19 sites but only about 6 or 7 that RV’s can fit into and it is on a mountain but you can get level. One would suggest reservations if you are headed this way but during the week in the Fall you may get a site. The sites are a good size but some are hard to back up into. It is near Mt. Mansfield ski area and the Stowe Lodge Resort. There are hiking trails from the campground and it is an easy drive to the quaint village of Stowe for shopping , restaurants and a bike trail. This is a four season resort area with plenty to do in every season. It is considered the best ski resort in the state. Very pretty area and we would definitely return. RV’s should know that they can only drive up to the Gondola section of the resort because they have to turn around since they are not allowed to drive the five miles over the mountain to the Smugglers Notch Ski area so must use route 100 and drive around about 30 miles. If one is going to try the bike trail there is parking at the church to the right to get on the trail but not parking in the rest of the town. This is a wonderful area to camp in but if your RV is over 28 to 30 feet I don’t know if I would come up here but we did see some big campers on route 100. - gsnakehill

Great people, great new location. Small on size, large on personality. Tucked in the middle of nowhere. If you want an amusement park, this is not the place but it is the place that is near many attractions and just a great place to spend time. Very clean. Very large private sites. THIS is camping. - tyandow

One of the best Vermont State Parks that we've stayed at. It's all dry camping, but Area A seems to have better sites for RVs. Good hiking trails, popular for mountain biking but steep terrain, nice beach area. Most waterfront sites are on a high bluff and the shore is not directly accessible. A mix of old and new bathroom facilities. The one near us didn't have a shower and really needed updating, but it was clean. - dedendon

Camped 1 night in 22' Class C, last week of September. After a day spent exploring Burlington we wanted to be situated near Waterbury the next day. The commercial sites in the area didn't seem to have the best reviews so we opted for the state park. We arrived after dark which I do not recommend if it can be avoided. The park is heavy wooded and cloaked in darkness. We drove right by the dump station / potable water fill and didn't find it until we had looped around and were headed back out. selecting and maneuvering into a site in the dark was a bit of a challenge. There was also no ranger/attendant on duty when we arrived, and somehow I misinterpreted the map board and stayed in a site that was apparently already reserved, however I supposed they never showed up or just didn't make a fuss about it because we weren't aware until paying the next morning. This campground would be challenging for anyone in a rig much bigger than ours, I would imagine. Maybe the "B Area" is better though, but it was closed on our visit. Once in and settled however, it was a fine place to stay for the night, and perfect to set out to Ben & Jerry's and all the other attractions in the area the next day. - VW_Vista

Roads are a little tight, some sites a little tight getting into. We meet another couple here to go to Ben and Jerrys. A little for off the beaten path but a good stay. - goldsp8

This is a very small park and a bit tight for a full size motorhome, but the owners were very helpful to get us into our back-in space with no issues. We stayed here for one week to visit Burlington, Stowe and other sites within 1 hour drive. Noise from the nearby highway could be an issue for some, but we always use "sound machines" to cover noise when sleeping, so it was fine. WIFI was typical of most CGs, ie, not real good. No TV cable or on-air channels available. Overall good value camping rate and very friendly owners! - Mark 5

Small but quite pretty campground on hillside. Level site, fairly closely spaced. To sit out we sat behind the coach. Next to major highway, but noise not too bad. Good 30 amp, hookups good. Very friendly owners, who were more than willing to help as needed. Friendly seasonals. Good location to visit area attractions. - Motorhome girl

This facility is easily reached and any updated GPS will take you right to the driveway. Remember the old saying "never judge a book by its cover" well this definitely applies here. When I first got in off the road I thought to myself "where is the campground". It's tight coming in and what you see in front of you is the entire park. But don't turn around and leave because, if you do, you will miss a truly fantastic place to stay. During our time here we felt like we were staying with family. Our site #10 was a back in, it was level, it had ample shade, convenient utilities, and good separation. Only two small negatives: there is only 30 amp so if you're a power user keep this in mind; there is absolutely no over the air TV nor cable. The owners and hosts will do everything reasonably possible to make your stay a wonderful experience. They definitely maintain the park and it shows. Depending on your site there may be road noise from Route 2 - but truthfully, we never noticed it even at night and even though we were backed up right to it. WI-FI was excellent. Clean but small laundry room. We would definitely come back again - William T

The roads in VT leave much to be desired and the state road leading from US 2 to the campground is really rough even at 35 mph. I called at least 3 weeks before for a site and we arrived just before lunch time. There was a sign on the office door saying: "Back at 5." (and something like) Park in the center and something about a post. I had no idea what the note meant. I worked my way into a site next to the office. While we were eating lunch a couple arrived and he knocked on the door saying there was going to be a family reunion and he had reserved that site 2 weeks ago. We were on our way to the last tour of the day at Rock of Ages so I said we would be back after 5. When we returned the owner showed up saying I gave the other guy a hard time. I said why didn't you say take a site in the center of the field (numbered 1 to 4)? He gave me a blank look and said I had to move. By not placing a cone or tape on the reserved site it caused me to have to move and the other guy to move also. There was a storm threatening and it began to rain. That said the campground is very neat with grass everywhere. For a small campground there is lots of traffic coming and going. Nothing around there so I'm not sure where they are going. VZ service was spotty, Sprint not at all. Wifi was weak but worked slowly. - mrracechaser

This is Vermont ! The GPS sent us to the State Park instead of here.
Quiet, no one was there to check in.
There weren't any level lots, We had to switch our sleeping arrangements around. Our lot probably had a 30 degree downward slope.
There were about 5 people in the whole park that night. Everyone was a permanent except for us.
The stars were beautiful! No tv service, no phone service just peace and quiet after a long drive from Ont Canada that day.
The bathrooms do not have any heat so the showers didn't appear to have been used for awhile. It was COLD in them thar hills!!!
If your going to stay for awhile bring a book. - SubVet SSBN619

Clean, quiet and very friendly helpful owner. Had some problems with our van and helped us find a dealer to help. WiFi poor unless you go to the porch of the main building. No shade, no level pads just grass to park on. - Moose and Squirrel

$40 per night but we averaged $33 for a 3 night stay with the Passport America discount. W/E50. This campround is an open grass field beside a little brook with nice spacing between sites. You must cross over a one lane bridge with a 24,000 pound limit to reach the campround. The road by the office and through the campround is awful with deep holes. It appears they have recently installed new water and electric hookups. We stayed here since we were Passport America members and would still stay here again. - Teddi2

Roads to the park are good, the road into the park has a narrow bridge with a weight limit of 27,000 lbs, but we went across it in our Class A as we had already turned onto the road and had no where else to go! The roads in the park are rutted so go slow. There was no check in as we paid in advanced. We did get led to our site but there was some confusion as to what sites were 30 or 50 amp. Sites are very unlevel, you can see the slopes and rolls in the ground. We ended up parking parallel to the hook-ups across a couple of sites - per their instructions - as there was no way to level otherwise. We had water and 50 amp electric, and there is a dump station on site. There was a fire ring and they brought us a picnic table when we requested one. The park is clean and very pretty, the grass really needed to be cut. There are lots of trials for hiking, one that takes you to the Rail Bed Trail and along another creek. There is no WiFi and our Verizon signal was good. No on site laundry. Some road noise but not too bad. Would love to give this a full star rating because it is such a nice place with the trails and river, but the unlevel sites and no WiFi, make that impossible. We stayed July 30 - August 6, 2018 and paid $28.57 a night with no discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

This park had heavily-potholed entry roads, traffic noise and no Wi-Fi. Our 30-amp, no sewer site delivered only 109 volts of electricity. The few spots with 50 amp and sewer were occupied by long-term customers. A bridge on the only access road had a 27,000 pound limit, a legalism frequently ignored to judge by the Class A motor homes in the park. Our satellite dish had no problems. Verizon phone/internet service was spotty. - Mtmoi
