Going to check more into that Jamaica State Park. I notice on their website, the trailer sites are listed up to a 20' trailer. The site pictures appear to hold larger trailers. Do you think a 26' tt is do-able? That is the type of park we like.

Since the water is coming out of the dam a mile or two up stream, is the water chilly? Been to other parks were a river was just after a dam, and the water stayed cold all the time.

We are actually going to hike it again on Sunday because we want to make sure our trailer will fit I know there are some spots where people had hybrids I will get you a list of good spots also Winhall Brook is awesome its all grass and well taken care of.

As far as water temps....Hmmmm lets say its refreshing in the summer its not too bad at all every spring they open the damn and let the water out.

On Jamaica State Park's website I was looking at sites 25,27 or 28. They seem nice and shady. But they don't really say anything about being level. Kind of hard to tell from the picture. Your right, from the pics of Winhall Brook it appears they have very nice grass.

Looking at maybe a mid July trip of about 15-16 days. I know I'll have to spend at least 5 days at Lake Dunmore's Kamperville North of Rutland. Kind of a busy private park, but my wife has a ball playing bingo there. I really like kayaking on the lake (Lake Dunmore) there.

I like to do two VT. State Parks with a private place in between to charge the batteries back up and do laundry.

Here are a few pics from our last VT. trip

All the sites at Jamaica are very level, #28 we have tent camped at its ok BUT where that fence is just below that is a well used trail and doesn't leave much in the way of privacy site 25 as I recall is a very nice site. Winhall has some shady sites if that works for you site #S46 you are completely surrounded by trees and no one can see in there your camper would fit just fine, that being said #S47 is nice and laid back as well we have used that sight at least 4-5 times it gets morning sun then the trees start to cover Winhall gets far less a midweek crowd than Jamaica. We are so looking forward to getting out in the TT with a tent anything more than a few days gets old quick or maybe its because I'm getting old

We tent camped for about 10 years. Locally we did a bunch of 1 or 2 day stays. Had split days off for 10 years. On our longer vacations we would stay in one place for 5 to 7 nights including VT. and PA. This was back in the 80's & 90's. Had a PuP for 6 years. Now on our 2nd hybrid. With 6 weeks of vacation now, I like to link up two weeks at a time to make it a 15 - 17 day trip. Personally would never go back to tent camping, but we have used the tent once or twice since we have had a trailer.

Thanx for the reply back on Jamaica. I thought the same thing about that fence being close to the trail on site 28. #25 since you confirm it's level is where I'll head. Just trying to think up of a game plan for the whole trip. O have to bookmark two VT state parks on either side of staying at the private Kamperville place.

Can't decide which other VT. park to visit. Last time we did Kamperville and the Stowe area. I really liked Half Moon SP just west of Rutland or our old favorite Gifford Woods SP. just east of Rutland.

Well if you do Gifford Woods you have to have a beer at Long Trail Brewery Also if you do like kayaking Wilgus State Park is a great spot its about 40 mins from Jamaica.

Long Trail Brewery Been there / done it. Usually pick up a few 6- paks of Long Trail Ale. Or go up to Otter Creek Brewery in Middlebury. Kent Pond next to Gifford Woods in nice for Kayaking

So is Lake St. Catherine and Half Moon Lake State park because the water is right next to the campsites.
