Gorgeous little campground! It's very clean and well kept. Great hiking and bouldering close by. Ice and firewood available from the ranger. We stayed in site 18: very private, slightly sunken from the road, and lots of tree coverage.

Hipcamper Rick

Have stayed there twice, it is pretty, clean and well kept. Was using a tent both times but RV's were about as well as lean two's. A lot to visit in the area and if lake/water activities desired your pass gives you free entry to another state property which does, about a 15 minute drive.
Enjoyable camping spot. Kept up nicely. Lots of trees for shade.

Hipcamper Tara

Small, quiet campground. You can walk to the AMAZING Bingham Falls from camp. Cliff jumping and frigid water. Be warned!

quiet time is from 10 until 7. we drove 9.5 hours and arrived to join our group at 6 am and they would not let us drive to the campsite. we we told to be quiet for just talking at the fire at 10:15. the camp ground is really nice but the staff might have a bit of a Napoleon complex.

Hipcamper Noah

Great little campground! Not a lot of sites so it stays quiet at night, bathrooms are super clean. The showers are nice and hot, $1 in quarters only for 4 minutes. A short walk to the trailhead at Bingham Falls, and only a few minutes drive to three different trailheads for Mt Mansfield. Would recommend!
