I spent a lot of time in Burlington. It's a little further North than I was hoping but as I recall it can be done in about 5 1/2 hours.

Looks like we like the same kind of parks. Where else do you like in Vermont?

I was a contractor at the IBM in Essex Junction and lived there for a little over 6 months, that's how I know Burlington and the fact that the first year I was there was the year the population of people grew to a number greater than the population of cows.

I know little of the campgrounds however.

Can you tell me what site you had at North Beach? That one looks pretty nice.

Site # 94. Here is a Picture Sites 1-18 are full hookup I believe.
Campground map.

You can walk or bicycle to the center of burlington. Many great places to eat in the center of town. Great sightseeing along Lake Champlain.

It is a great park that is run by the Burlington Park System.

I don't think you can fit that beast you have now in that site. Us A drivers have to park along the road.

Did you have your dogs then? The site says no dogs on the beach so I would imagine you just have to find another place to let them swim. My Springer lives to swim.

There would be plenty of room on the site we were on with our then trailer to park our current motorhome. The combined trailer / pickup was around 45 feet. The current motorhome is at 33 feet. Look at the other pictures that I have, you will see other class A's in the neighboring sites.

There are other places for your dog to take a swim, many access points along the walking / bicycling path that is located on the western part of the campground. There were also two dog parks along the walking / bicycling path.

Your photos make it look larger than it does on their web site. I think we're going to give this place a shot for Labor Day weekend. I love the area in general so I'll be taking a trip to Smugglers Notch and over to Mad River Glen. They run the Gondola at Stow in the Autumn just for sight seeing so a day there may also be in order

Nothing completes a trip better than a ferry ride. I took that one as well as the one from Burlington over to Rouses Point.

There's the last surviving paddle boat ferry over the Susquehanna that leaves out of Millersburg if you're ever out that way in your car. It's too small for an RV though.

Yep, we did the Stow ride back in 97 when we camped in the Burlington area in October. We camped in a tent then, it was around 25 degrees at night. Then we headed over to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. We love it there also.

Love the Ferry rides across the lake. Great pictures.

We simply showed an ID while checking in and they issued it on the spot, no charge. Our 35E is supposed to be closer to 36' and we tow on a dolly, but when looking for sites I always say 35'. One of our Dam Yankee Bounder friends had given us that tip a long time ago. Makes a big difference saying 35' vs 38' or 40' and we always get in. Sites in Long Pine Key CG all have pads that are appx 30' deep. But with all that overhang behind the rear axle to back over the curb stop it was no problem.
