Overall Rating:

This campground is located in Killington VT. First the good: We stayed at OAK (lean to) with our Roadtrek (23') motorhome. The sites are big and, for the most part, private. Lean-to sites are spacious, as well. Bathrooms were clean; showers with plenty of hot water. Bathhouse in the lower loop is newer and felt more clean. There is a dump station available. Appalachian Trail goes right through the park which is why I chose this park while my husband was thru-hiking the AT. Used this campground as a base for a few days while he came through the area. The bad: Initial reaction was that I loved this place - but it didn't take long for that opinion to change. The squirrels and chipmunks here are out of control. No kidding. I love camping and being outdoors but I have never encountered so many and such aggressive squirrels. They leave feces all over EVERYTHING (chairs, table, cooler, lean to). They have no fear and will jump onto your camp chair while you're sitting in it. They chew anything that is left out (including my husband's sleeping bag that we left out to dry). My final straw was went I went into our camper and found feces on the chairs and my bed. A squirrel (or more?) had made it's way through the screen door and made a mess within an hour of when I last went in the camper. In speaking with the campground hosts, I found the problem is throughout the area. They had to order a new screen for their RV because the squirrels had chewed a hole through it and gotten into their food inside the camper. It may sound ridiculous to complain about wildlife while camping - but this experience was bad enough that I will not return to Gifford State Park. Larger motorhomes had a difficult time navigating the narrow roads. But roads are well maintained. We camped at Gifford Woods State Park in a Motorhome.
