Hey-Don't get me wrong, the place isn't BAD...it just isn't good. There wasn't anything awesome, the staff wasn't overly nice, and the site was quite small. I guess I was expecting more of a campground rather than an RV park as we were in a tent. I found $34 a night to be quite steep for the size of the site and lack of any sort of solace...We were nestled in-between 2 RV's...hardly peaceful. Luckily, we were in VT for the Maritime Festival in Burlington and rode our bikes the 7 miles to town each day to relax by the lake. Also, luckily there weren't a bunch of hooligans being loud when we returned to our site.
I really only researched the place via their website...had I checked Trip Advisor, I wouldn't have stayed there. Unless you're in a "Meet the Parents" type rig, or plan on being a seasonal in a camper from the 80's--this isn't the place for you.
