Welcome to Camping on The Battenkill

If you are looking for a quiet family campground that brings you back to nature, then you have come to the right place. Just north of the town of Arlington, Vermont on Historic Route 7A you will find our campground which is on 39 Acres of forested land and two rivers. The Battenkill River is known as one of the best trout streams in the East and offers a challenge of landing one of the many native trouts that live here. The campground boasts a natural swimming hole which has refreshing clear water. Many campers enjoy bringing their own tubes or canoes and floating down the river.

When not enjoying the river, children and adults alike love our large open field area for playing ball games, corn hole, volley ball and such, children have fun swinging on the swings, or digging in the sand pile.

With many different types of campsites we have something for everyone. Take a look at some of the many features our park has to offer below!

What we have learned from COVID:

Camping on the Battenkill listens to its campers!

  1. Due to Covid, we introduced a strict code of cleanliness in our bathrooms, bringing us many compliments and 5 Star Reviews. We will keep the cleaning schedules into the future.
  2. We offered free WiFi in the past and had many complaints about how slow it was. So we listened and installed a top of the range system that offers the FASTEST WiFi you will find around. There is a nominal fee to pay, but we now have many thankful campers who can work/school/stream 4 devices from the comfort of their camper.
  3. Many people have become convinced that CAMPING is safer than shopping, and we agree. We will continue to go a long way to keep our campground as safe and convenient for our campers as we can, so you can camp as often as you feel like!
