Sasquatch Acres

6 sites · Tents20 acres · Hardwick, VT
Welcome to our wooded haven, offering a rustic camping experience amidst nature's embrace. With over 20 acres of forested land, complete with a babbling brook and extensive hiking trails, you'll find tranquility at every turn. Just a short distance from Lake Elmore, the Elmore General Store, and Elmore Mountain, our location provides easy access to local amenities and outdoor adventures. As stewards of the land, we cherish its beauty and hope you'll do the same. Our camping area offers primitive accommodations with no facilities currently available. Please remember to bring your own camping toilet and pack out all trash. We're in the process of setting up picnic tables and a fire pit for your enjoyment. Rumor has it that Sasquatch pays us a visit every spring, particularly in early April. While we can't guarantee a sighting, the allure of encountering this legendary creature adds to the mystique of our surroundings. Feel free to explore the photos provided, showcasing the scenic beauty of Lake Elmore, nearby hiking trails, and the majestic Elmore Mountain. Unfortunately, we don't have any snapshots of Sasquatch – at least not yet. So come prepared for adventure and immerse yourself in the untamed wilderness that awaits!

Lake Tenting/Sm. RV Hyde Park VT

1 site · RV, Tent6 acres · Hyde Park, VT
You have your choice of camping with your van or small RV or tent, in a level, forested area (not lakeside) with picnic table and fire pit, or tenting lakeside with water views, picnic table and fire pit, or both! You have access to both, one reservation comes with both spots, so you can enjoy the lakeside regardless of where you sleep. Vehicles cannot reach the tent site, it is a steep trail about a 150 feet. Although our campsite is near the lake, you cannot drive to the water from the campsite. It is a steep, short hike down to the water. We recommend you bring canoes, kayaks and/ or paddle boards to get the most enjoyment out of your stay. It will be a rugged trip with the boats up and down the path to the water, but worth it in every way. There are three private homes on the lake, adjacent to where your site it located so we ask that no loud partying, play music only quietly and no generators. There are no campers on either side of your campsite, we only offer one, the perfect social distancing location. There is a nice, clean outhouse and no other amenities (Tier D in HipCamp-speak). No on site water. There are no other campsites at our place, you have the place to yourself. We have two dogs on the property, who are friendly and are off leash. If having dogs around would be a problem for you, please don't make a reservation. If you plan on bringing a dog please let us know.

Feel Good Farm

11 sites · RVs, Tents150 acres · Wolcott, VT
This 150-acre property has been in our family for 30 years and now houses three generations. Built in 1900 it was a traditional dairy farm until the 50's and 60's when potatoes were planted on the fields for the Boston and New York markets. By the 70's and 80's it became a gentleman's farm for a retired couple from New York City and the dairy farmers nearby hayed the fields. When we purchased the property in 1993 we continued offering the hay, built greenhouses, planted vegetable and flower gardens, ran a traditional Bed and Breakfast, now airbnb. We leased some of the fields to a local organic seed company for 13 years until they purchased their own property. The farm remains certified organic and is still being hayed by a local dairy farm, the gardens are community managed using regenerative and sustainable practices when ever possible. This year in the commercial garden, seed crops will be planted once again. Much of the cultivated agricultural land is protected under the Vermont Land Trust, to ensure that it remains used for agricultural purposes. We love to share our farm and forest with others. In addition to our very intentional farming operations, you can find wild edibles tucked away on forest trails. Wildlife and wildflowers abound. Views and sunsets. Check out the 968 acre wildlife management area that abuts the property. Plenty of trails through the woods leading to Wolcott Pond and hidden beaver huts and dams. Children 16 and under no charge but before booking please contact us to let us know how many children and we'll send a discount code. so you won't be charged when indicating number of people in your party. Our little pond behind the big greenhouse has filled up a bit more this spring which you are welcome to use for dipping or frog watching. Starting in June the outdoor kitchen and sun showers will be available for guests use. We can host large parties with advance notice.

The best camping near Green River Reservoir State Park guide

Overview

About

Ready to get wild? Green River Reservoir is not your typical state park. Located only an hour south of the Canadian border, it provides camping and paddling in an “undeveloped” setting. The detailed use restrictions help maintain Green River Reservoir’s primitive vibe. The Reservoir is a designated “quiet” lake, allowing only human-powered watercrafts and motorized ones up to 5 MPH. Day use is permitted in limited numbers, but the campsites are reserved for overnighters. Fires are allowed in designated rings, but it’s recommended that you use a portable, camping stove to leave less of a mark. Be sure to exercise Leave No Trace practices and pack-out your trash. That being said, the management is pretty laissez-faire and only steps in to maintain high-quality outdoor experiences for visitors.

With a single large, group campsite, this might be a better getaway for you and your closest BFFs, as opposed to, say, your extended family reunion. The park’s remote campsites are scattered throughout the reservoir and can ONLY, repeat: ONLY be reached by boat. While it’s only a one to two-mile paddle from the launch site, definitely make sure to consult the map on your way out. No, really, check it out: it looks like it belongs to Captain Jack Sparrow and might lead you to buried treasure.

When to go

The best time to visit Green River Reservoir State Park is during the warm summer months, from June to August, when the water is perfect for paddling and the forests are full of life. Fall also offers a spectacular display of foliage. Winter brings a quiet beauty, though some activities may be limited by the cold.

Know before you go

  • Check weather conditions before your visit, as they can change rapidly amid the park's natural landscape.
  • Be prepared for a rustic camping experience; amenities are minimal, so pack accordingly.
  • Respect wildlife habitats and maintain a safe distance from animals.
  • Some areas may be closed for environmental protection; adhere to all park signage.
  • Remember to practice Leave No Trace principles to preserve the park's beauty for future visitors.
