Editing this post:
Brighton State Park has 84 sites, 5 of those are cabins that have electricity. 26 sites are lean tos. Most sites accommodate up to 8 people. However, only 2 vehicles per site. There’s no hookups or WiFi and that’s what makes it a great place to get away from it all!

Brighton State Park is a hidden jewel in the northeast kingdom of Vermont. The perfect place for a relaxing getaway. A peaceful place to spend time in nature, whether you’re hiking the shore trail on Spectacle Pond, kayaking, fishing or watching the lions. It’s a magical place to camp!

It's a beautiful, out of the way State Park! We biked around Island Pond, and swam, boated in Spectacle Pond. Will go back some day!
