On SUNRISE FARM in EAST DOVER Vermont is on CONSERVATION land & features this new idyllic camping spot Away from the farmhouse  on our 72 acre farm. This site is alongside a pristine Pond we call the “LOTUS POND” (see Sign on dock for) with plenty of parking and big enough for several tents.

The “Primitive” (no power) car camping site is just below our Big Swim Pond above (which we encourage you to enjoy ~ see pics). You drive here with my guidance through a different entrance well past the farmhouse on the north end of the farm. Port a Potty is 200 yards away amongst the trees with a solar light for night use.

The water you have there is from the pond (we recommend boiling for cooking 10 minutes when cooking with it). Additional tested water can be found at our well spigot by the farmhouse for delicious drinking water.

Please NO Detergents or Soaps in the pond. We provide special camp soap, buckets.Dump dish water from the buckets we provide behind the site on the ground.

This unique site that is marked “Lotus Pond”. Great for Bird watchers as Herons, Eagles, Turkey Vultures, Hawks, Geese, Ducks and Osprey among other wildlife love our four ponds. 

Please take all trash with you ~so "no trace is left behind".

Firewood will be provided for a stone fire ring when you request it. Please do NOT bring your own Firewood to our Conservation Zone as we have been advised it can transport a dangerous Wood Beetle.  Our Firewood “Extra” is better value than what you typically find shrinkwrapped.

Lots to enjoy and this is just below the Big Swim Pond where there are no sites and this is the most private of all our sites here.

In Winter months we request AWD vehicles and if there is ice please park by entry and hike in so you can easily get out.

My two teenagers and I have been doing an annual Father’s Day camp out for the last 10 years and Sunrise farm did not disappoint. The Lotus pond site is a beautiful site tucked away on the property and is a very peaceful and relaxing site.

The site is large enough to have our 10x10 tent set up. You only have a few spots for a tent that large so it does take a little planning.
We were able to setup our tent and large canopy with plenty of room for chairs and other supplies.

Roy was a great host and did everything he could to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time. We enjoyed playing frisbee golf and explore the different sites and trails. We didn’t get a chance to swim but the big pond looked like a great place to cool off and is right next to the site.
Something’s to note about this site that may influence your decision on what site to stay at. Lotus Pond is a primitive site, meaning there isn’t an outhouse or portipotty at the site. It is about 2 tenths of a mile away and shared between multiple sites. This wasn’t a problem for us but you need to be aware of it. Also this site is not conducive for hanging the solar shower,(an optional add on) so unless you have something that will support the weight you might want to skip that.

In under 45 minutes you can be canoeing or kayaking on the Connecticut river or you can head to Stratton or Mount Snow if you need a little more adventure.

Sunrise farm and Roy provide a fantastic location.

My first time staying at a hip camp site, very quiet spot had a small amount of cell service and the WiFi was provided by the host. The small dock was nice to set up the tent on and little to no dirt was tracked into my tent which was nice. I’d stay here again.

Response from Roy, the Host, on June 6th, 2022

Dear Charles, Thanks for driving so far… and if you like variety when you return next time… try our other location nearby in South Newfane VT called Wishbone Left or Right by the Brook. Left is very popular with Drinking Well Water and Power and a cold water shower.

What an incredible oasis. So wonderful to have a spot all to ourselves. Our dogs especially were in heaven. Roy was incredibly accommodating, helpful, and just truly a wonderful host. We will most definitely be back.

Loved the area. Very easy to get to. There was quite a bit of flat area by the pond so I was able to set up my large 3-person tent and a nice awning next to it for relaxing.

Very lovely little spot tucked away on a very large well maintained property. It was early spring so I was the only one there. Site was very clean and private.
