Places to see near Woodbury Meadows CG
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Woodbury Meadows is the perfect location in central Vermont. Right off of the capital of Montepelier there's a lot to do while still being in a rural, lake abundant community. The Meadows are owned by a lovely couple Jon and Ann who have built a community of close friends and family in the area.
Upon arrival at Woodbury Meadows we were welcomed with silly jokes and open arms. The site had anything we needed, including a newly built bathouse equipped with organic products and sustainable lights. Jon and Ann had a lovely community oriented potluck during our arrival and we were able to see their community in full effect. During the potluck we were able to learn about their on site forraging and earth connection classes. Before you go check out the class listings at Wisdom of the Herb School taught by Annie, a close friend and resident of the Woodbury Meadows community.
The site that we stayed at had a newly built patio outlooking Jon and Ann's land across the road. There was a picnic table, firewood, and a water faucet for our own convenience. The site has a beautiful view of the property, though the ground is graveled so be prepared with insulation padding for your rent.
In the area, there are quite a few lakes with public access for swimming, fishing, and boating (I highly recommend bug spray, the flies and mosquitoes are lethal). The town of Woodbury has a small general store with a bar attached in the back featuring weekend folk music and local brews. If you're looking for a more fast pace bar, check out Three Penny Bar in downtown Montepelier just 20 minutes away. There are also amazing book stores, toy stores, and other shops in town to occupy your time during your stay. Finally, if you don't do anything else while visiting at Woodbury Meadows, make sure you stop at Morse Farm and grab a creamie and other Vermont made goods. The store is a game changer!
Great experience. The camp site was nicely sized, not too far away from a little store that had your basics as well as some good goodness and a small bar. The bathroom at the site was very very nice and the owner was a great guy. Helped us find good things to do during the day, lent us his canoe, and even let us use his dryer when our things got soaked in the rain. Would definitely reccomend.
Great host, many amenities
Jon was a great host. We came in late at 9:30pm, but Jon gave us a warm welcome by flashlight. The site had a fire pit, picnic table, and marble sink with potable water. The bathroom was clean and nicely decorated. The only downsides were that we were somewhat close (20ft) to the other campsites, and due to the heavy rains the ground was muddy in some places. We didn't take advantage of the canoes and kayaks, but the launch was very close to the site. A wonderful experience!
Back to nature with a little glitz
The experience was amazing and beyond our expectations. The on site sink was luxurious, the tarp covered table fantastic and of course the fire pit (with seating) was perfect. The "bath house" was totally unexpected and takes this location to the next level! Jon, our host, could not have been more welcoming and informative - he takes great pride in his land and his guests experience. We look forward to returning!
Great camping spot with a view of a marshy area, beautiful trees and environment. The site itself is about 100 ft from the road so you will hear cars passing but they are so infrequent on this country road that it didn’t make much difference... just know that you’re not out in the woods, you’re on someone’s property. Even so, the campsite is pretty private, outfitted with a sink, table, fire ring, and even a shade covering a portion of the site. The bathhouse is a very short walk up the hill and it’s pretty amazing to take a hot shower while camping! We visited this campground for one night during a bike tour of VT and we were so pleased with the efforts Jon and Ann put into making this a great place to stay. We got to meet Ann, who is an absolute true blue sweat heart, and some of the other residents who live/stay on the property who were also awesome. Very great experience over all and we hope to come back again someday.
