“Not what I expected.....”
Reviewed 31 May 2007

I was not very impressed with this campground. The sites are right on top of each other, and they are not secluded at all. There were many dogs on the grounds, which were constantly barking - most notably at 7:30am when I was still sleeping. The employees responded quickly to complaints made by other campers about one particular dog, although the dog continued on through the day anyway. The location is great, being only a few short minutes from downtown Burlington, as well as being right on the lake.

Pros:
Location - right on the lake and near downtown
Bathrooms are large and clean

Cons:
Sites are too close together
Sites have no privacy

I've been going at North Beach Campground for the last 10 years and it is the most beautiful campground in the area. The beach on Lake Champlain is incredible, the campground is clean, quiet and the staff very friendly. The rates are very affordable for what you get, and it is conveniently located, near Downtown Burlington. There's a nice bike path leading to the city. Each year I look forward to go camping there. Go and you'll see!!!

I can't imagine there are many camp grounds in the middle of a city, so we were really lucky to find this. The rates were a little high, but you get what you pay for. Nice bathrooms, a firepit, volley ball court (for the kids!), security and a 5 minute walk from a huge beach on Lake Champlain. Plus your a quick drive from downtown Burlington and its wonderfuls restaurants and shops. We were there on a Thursday night, and there were nearly 20 bands playing at different bars and cafes--pretty impressive for a small college town. The only down side to the grounds in that its across a small ravine from a cemetery--kinda spooky to leave your tent at 3am to go to the bathroom! Anyway, it was cheaper than a hotel and still felt "in the woods" considering your in the middle of the city.
