Hookups: at this time there are no water, sewer or electric hookups in Vermont State Parks. However, there are dump stations, water spigots every few campsites and parks do allow some limited generator use. Use of dump stations is free for campers. Non-campers can pay $15 for RVs up to 30 ft.; $30 for RVs over 30 ft or for buses.
Sites for RV's: most parks have sites that will accommodate RV's. We've compiled a list of some of the larger sites that can accommodate the really big rigs.
Generators: Generators are a mixed bag in the parks - some people love them and others hate them. As a general rule, the quieter your generator is the more you'll be able to use it. Each park sets its own policy regarding the specific hours of generator use, but usually its a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the evening. Its a good idea to call the park directly prior to your visit to get the details on the park's generator policy.
Using the interactive campground maps: You can get more information on the offerings of a particular park by visiting the individual park pages and viewing the interactive campground maps. For example, by selecting a park from the Fast Park Finder drop down menu located at the top of the screen, you will go to that park's page. Once there, you will find a description of the park, downloadable pdfs of any trails or nature guides pertinent to the park as well as a link to view our interactive campground maps. You will see the overview of the park layout. Then, click on a specific site. You will see a photo of the site plus information about the site from our reservations database.
