6 Glorious Campgrounds In Vermont Where No Reservation Is Required
We often plan our camping trips well in advance, and sometimes we have to wait a year before we can set up our site. Lucky for us it’s easy to make reservations at Vermont State Parks and other campsites. However, sometimes advance planning just isn’t in the cards. So the next time you find yourself yearning to spend the night under the stars, these 6 places are first come, first serve. No reservation camping in VT is just waiting for you!
1. Bald Mountain Summit, Westmore
For a truly special experience, hike to the summit of Bald Mountain and snag the cabin which sleeps four. The views are out of this world (especially at sunrise) so we recommend getting there early since it's first come first serve. Bring a tent as a backup, too.
2. Greendale Campground, Weston
Weston is known for it's Vermont Country Store, but hiding in the forest is a campsite waiting for you to pop in.
3. Chittenden Brook, Rochester
Pop up your tent and roast some marshmallows in one of the sweet spots here. Some areas are close to each other, others are set apart and each has their own fire pit so get there early to take your pick.
4. Hapgood Pond Campground, Peru
You'll love the great swimming area here. With park benches and open areas, it's the perfect place for family friendly activities as well as kayaking and fishing on the water.
5. Moosalamoo, Goshen
This quiet and rustic site is really remote, so if you're looking to really get away, this is it. There are loads of wildflowers and ferns that separate each of the 19 campsites.
6. Pico Camp, Rutland
Most people will be hiking toward Deer's Leap, but if you follow the blue blazed trails you'll find a special cabin that's rustic and charming. Bring a tent in case you're not the first one there. First come, first serve!
