We were looking for a campground near Burlington and the Lake Champlain Islands area so we could do a little exploring. Lone Pine is conveniently located a few miles north of Burlington in Colchester, Vermont. The last time my wife and I were here was back in our college days so we were eager to reacquaint ourselves with the area.
Lone Pine is an “above average” campground near I-89 (exit 16) off US Route 7. Most of the sites are located in a large field dotted with shade trees. Interior roads are paved and in good condition. Sites are comfortably large with plenty of room for awnings and slide outs. There are two pools, a rec hall, clean restrooms, laundry and a small camp store. LP gas is also available. The staff was friendly and check in was quick and painless.
Our stay was in September so I can’t say much about their planned activities but they do mention the fact that they offer firetruck rides for the kids in season.
Burlington is a great little city with plenty to see and do and the Lake Champlain Islands are absolutely beautiful. You’ll have no problem planning day trips from this campground.
Although I wouldn’t rank Lone Pine up there with the best, it definitely is clean, quiet and comfortable and a great base to explore this part of Vermont!
