Vermont’s Favorite Family Campground
Lone Pine Campsites, Vermont: Can you say “Ben and Jerry’s,” Church Street Marketplace, and Echo Lake Aquarium?
It’s almost more than a person can hope for: Your homey RV nestled in lovely Lone Pine Campsites ("Vermont's Favorite Family Campground"), knowing you’re only 26 miles from Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory! Rumor has it their “FlavoRoom” loves to hand out ice cream samples…hmmm…think your kids (or you) will like that? Also, unless you tell them, the youngsters won’t realize how much they’re learning from the 30 minute ice cream factory tour. And being at at Ben and Jerry’ means you’re in the little village of Waterbury, with its classic, small-town Vermont charm.
You’ll love the historic buildings, and how central Waterbury is to so many other places and activities. Oh, and everyone is wowed by Waterbury’s Rock of Ages quarry. Even if you don’t give a rip about rocks, the guided tour of this quarry is pretty amazing for all ages. It’s huge. As in enormous.
Less than 20 miles from Waterbury, is Burlington’s incredible Church Street Marketplace. It’s pure joy any season of the year. Unless you live in a place like Vermont, you may not know how lovely and wonderful the traditional Vermont towns are, with their outdoor walking marketplaces and town centers. You’ll be hard pressed to decide if Church Street Marketplace is more beautiful under falling snow, rustling scarlet leaves, or if it’s more beautiful whiling away sunny days at outdoor cafes.
If you’re anywhere near Burlington, you surely must stop by the Echo Aquarium and Science Center, just a short walk from downtown Burlington. “ECHO” is their acronym for Ecology, Culture, History, and Opportunity. Take advantage of this place, for it really is an opportunity. You’ll see over 2,200 live fish, amphibians and reptiles. It’s quite kid centered: youngsters (and oldsters) can become eco-detectives, immerse themselves in a volcano and become part of a glacial multimedia theater. ECHO Aquarium is an interactive museum that you and your family will find quite engaging.
At some point, you’ll want to mosey on back to your RV and relax, and you are in the right place to do that: Lone Pine Campsites, with 265 large campsites, is in the midst of all kinds of Vermont wildlife and and native trees. All the things you need are there ( hook-up options, laundry, WI-FI, etc.) , and they also appreciate and welcome tent campers. They know what they’re doing; they’ve been there over 40 years.
While you may want to relax, your kids may not, so they’re in for a treat. Lone Pine has a well stocked camp store, sports courts, two enormous swimming pools, and if you time it right, they offer rides on a 1952 fire truck!
Lone Pine Campsites is a lot of fun, and great place to call home while immersing yourself in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. Lone Pine is a class act.
