Really helpful, friendly Ranger on site and as with all Vermont State Parks, it's kept really clean and tidy, sites, bathrooms, facilities etc. Wood and ice are available at the Ranger station and they will deliver the wood. The pavilion at the office/Ranger Station has tables and wifi, also an electric outlet to charge up a tablet, phone or computer if needed. I had great cell service (Verizon) here btw
The sites are all very nice, most of them shady; you will see your neighbors but not close enough to have a conversation. There is a fair amount of road noise, more than I anticipated. The sites at the end of the loop probably have more as there is an open field adjacent to the property between the campground and the road. Also up on the road at that end is a construction company and they start up early getting their trucks and guys out. In addition at that end, the sound of the peepers in the field and small pond is positively deafening. I recommend staying below 9/10. Also worth noting if you are tenting 4, 6 & 7 had quite of bit of water in them after a thunderstorm.
There is one main bathroom with three stalls and one shower (bring some quarters). It's clean but because it's not completely screened if you shower at night you will have company...moths, mosquito's etc. Also there is another bathroom at the Ranger station
You can rent canoes on site and also there is a weekend shuttle pick up by North Star Canoe Rentals, during the week you need to go to their site across the river.
A couple of local recommendations;
• Le Moo's Dairy Barn in Claremont,N.H.
• Green Mountain Smoke House,Windsor,VT. (retail store to bring back to grill)
• Harpoon Brewery (great beer & food)
• Mount Ascutney (drive or hike)
• Morningside Flight Park, Charleston,N.H. (zip lining, hang gliding lessons)
