The town of Stowe is about a 20 min drive from the  campground.  It is a must see destination and we definitely recommend spending some time there!  The town of Morrisville is very close, only about 5 min away and offers just about anything you could need during your stay – grocery stores, gas stations, shopping, restaurants & breweries!

No, we do not offer any RV storage services at any time of year.  Only current seasonal campers are permitted to store their RV on site during the winter months.

We do not offer seasonal sites or monthly rates.  The majority of our sites are transient and have a 14 night max depending on the site.  Stays longer than 2 weeks may be accommodated on select sites only, contact us for availability, policies and booking.

Traveling health care workers are welcome to contact us for extended stays at discounted rate (RV sites only, if available).

The site lock/pick your site feature IS OPTIONAL and allows guests to select and guarantee a specific site number.  This optional feature incurs a fee per reservation and is NON-REFUNDABLE in the event of cancellation or changes.   If you have a favorite site or a group that would like to be guaranteed to be all together, this may be for you!  If not, you can just book the type of site and the site number will be assigned to you at check-in.   

Please note that this is OPTIONAL!  Reservations are made by site type (Standard, Deluxe, etc.) and you are still guaranteed that type of site but the specific site number will not be assigned until check-in.  

Reservations open to book online in early January for that years camping season.  Specific date will be posted on the website each year after we close in October.
