We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled into this campground. KOAs in general are well maintained, but this one was a definitely cut above.
The Brattleboro North KOA is “tucked among the hills of the Connecticut River Valley in southeastern Vermont”, right on US Route 5, about 4 miles from I-91, exit 3, in East Dummerston, Vermont… just north of Brattleboro.
We had made our reservations online the night before so check-in was quick and easy. The staff was friendly and helpful and made us feel welcomed. This is a quiet, laid back campground… just what we were looking for.The property is beautiful… manicured lawns under mature shade trees. The interior roads are gravel and sufficiently wide to get around even with a larger rig. Sites are gravel and relatively level. They are comfortably large although if you have an RV say 38′ or more you may use the entire legnth. It’s an older campground built in the days when RVs were smaller. Each site as a picnic table and a pedestal barbecue grill. There are a limited number of full hook-up sites. There is also a tenting area near the rear of the property.
The facilities are clean and well maintained. The “Walker Farm” is located right next door where you can buy fresh corn and vegetables. The campground has a swimming pool (open Mid May thru – Mid September), game room, and playground complete with pirate ship and sandbox.
The campground store is small but offers the essentials including several Vermont made products. There are also five motel-type cottages that each have private baths, showers and clean linens.
Wifi is free here. Our site was located near the center of the property and our signal was nice and strong. Some sites also have cable with an impressive list of channels. Their website mentioned an extra charge, but we had it without any extra fees.
This is a great little campground. The younger kids may find it a tad boring because there are no formal, planned activities here… but their motto is “clean, quiet and comfortable.” and they are just that.
We’ll be back!
