Primitive camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
With the main house built in 1860 this property has seen many uses such as a farm, retail Christmas store, church, rental cabins, and a gravel quarry among other things. I now try to keep the back acreage by the brook and pond as natural as possible for habitat, as well as you the campers! Learn more about this land: Most will have cell service at the site or there is a free public Wi-Fi in Wilmington center. Private yet convenient to Downtown Wilmington, VT. Located between the Harriman reservoir and Lake Raponda, both great for boating, fishing and swimming. As well as the Deerfield River across the street, which runs through town. There is a public hiking trail that goes through the property. It goes from the Fairview ave. boat launch in Wilmington, all the way up to West Dover. You can access this at the back of the site. The site is only a minutes drive from downtown Wilmington, or you can hike/bike there on the trail (approx 15 min). In Wilmington there is plenty of shopping, gifts, coffee, restaurants, gas, liquor store. I also have dry, split firewood available as an extra for $5. Please don't bring your own unless it is prepackaged from shaws or bought from one of the local sellers right around me. Transportation of out of state firewood can bring invasive beetles to our forests...This campsite is located in Wilmington VT at the back of 9 acres. In a field, next to a 2 acre pond and the forest. There is a fire pit with a grill, a picnic table and lawn games for your use. There are no facilities so please be sure to be self-contained and leave no trace.

We really enjoyed our two nights! Simple setting by a pond with a creek and path behind the site. It was beautiful and so peaceful. The stars the second night were beautiful. This was a relaxing spot and we will definitely be back. Thank you Gus!

This place is so convenient off the highway. Gus keeps the spot super clean, mowed, lots of space. The pond is enchanting and peaceful, watched the little ducks swimming around while eating dinner. I would definitely stay again.

Great Site, Would Stay Again
We very much enjoyed our stay at Gus's Campground. It's a very peaceful, relaxing site. It was wonderful to sit next to the pond and watch the ducks while sipping our morning coffee. Gus was very friendly when we had the opportunity to meet him. We would definitely stay again!
