Cute spot in the hills of vermont!
This was a great spot to stop and I wish we had more time to explore the area! We stayed for just one night on our way through the state at the end of October on a week night. There were lots of open spots and we were allowed to choose the perfect one. Looks like the spots would be pretty close together if the campground was full, but we had plenty of space. The friendly person who greeted us also brought us some wood. We enjoyed stretching our legs on the nature trails and the bathrooms were bright, colorful, and clean.
Comfortable, friendly campground
We spent four nights at Onion River and enjoyed every minute. The campground is clean, the hosts were helpful, and the setting was spectacular. We’ll stay again if we wander back to Vermont.
Peaceful, until it wasn’t.
Jacquelyn, our host was fantastic.
This issue was, she wasn’t there.
We were met by two (employees, later to learn they’re also “owners”) that had no idea we were coming in.
They led us to a “private spot by the river” that was lovely...
With the exception of the group if 7-8 PACKED campers, about 10 feet from each other (despite the wide open space); these are “apparently” the “regulars”.
This group was up until 1:30 am, (screeching kids went to sleep at 11) partying and reveling, crushing cans of Bud and smoking cigarettes... there was NO SLEEPING to be had anywhere with that noise...the Colorado River in spring couldn’t drown out that noise.
Twice we asked (yelled?) at them to quiet down, both times they “laughed” back at us.
At one point, I was pretty sure I heard the banjos from “Deliverance” playing in the background..
To our horror, we saw that the two “employee/owners” were among the party goers.
Finally called the hosts # at 1:15 am and she came down and broke up the party, while we slept fearfully that the group would circle the wagons around us when she left.
We packed up at dawn and looked for new “accommodations”,
The infield of a NASCAR track on race day had to be more serene.
Jacquelyn was wonderful, and professional.
Handled our issue with respect and promptly refunded our two nights.
Beautiful property. Indeed.
If you can safely cross the “tribal line” of the “regulars” and they keep the drumbeats down.
Last minute stay
We were trying to find a place to swim and enjoy some privacy, the campground is large but the plots are closer together. The creek is awesome if you want to explore and bring water shoes but you will not be able to swim and access it without proper equipment. The hosts are really nice and let us pick our own spot. It was last minute and most of this lands on my plate because we read the summaries and didn’t do research beyond that. I think some rules changed in light of Covid as there were not bathrooms available or free firewood despite the description.
Good weekend camping...
Positives: Sites along pleasant small river, open field nearby, water & electric on each site, dump station inside camp, clean, friendly host.
Negatives: Fairly busy roadway nearby with plenty of traffic noise, sites are VERY close together, water & electric hookup in awkward location. Vermont back roads are TERRIBLE.
A family hippie vibe, but not much privacy. It’ seems like a nice place for families and people who are super unfussy, but it wasn’t the right place for us. It differed a bit from the description- it was a place to lay our heads, but I wouldn’t stay again.
