  • A beautiful, rocky, rugged pass through the highest of Vermont’s Green Mountains. DO NOT MISS the new boardwalk that starts at the Barnes Camp Visitor Center! Great for all ages, it provides a...  more »
  • The rock formations were impressive and we could park/get away from the road. It took me a bit to figure out the park was divided into pieces - the walks along the road, the falls trail, and the...  more »
  • What a fascinating and unique place! We had a person with mobility issues, so couldn't venture far. Nonetheless we were amazed by the natural wonder of this place. Huge boulders, tumbled down from...  more »
  • Small, clean and comfortable campground. Just far enough outside of Stowe to be quiet and remote while not too far from the center to be inconvenient. Staff was friendly and helpful. This campground books up quickly, so reserve early.
  • Beautiful drive through the area on 108 with several hiking areas along the way and parking area/clean bathrooms at the top. If you're from out of town, the road gets very narrow... tractor trailers and camper drivers don't do it!
  • Don’t miss the drive from Stowe up to the Smugglers Notch State Park. It’s perfect for summer and a dream during fall. Most suitable for foliage viewing and leaf peeping!
  • Friendly staff! Secluded camp sites with the sound of a Brook running nearby as you wonder off into a peaceful tranquil land of green. Many places to see within a 10 mile radius. Many short hikes. Many more long hikes. The weather was perfect for hiking (70's) while my fiance and I were visiting. June 9-11. Little chilly at night (40's) but it was not to cold for us in a tent with a hefty sleeping bag. Overall had a very pleasant stay at this camp ground and would certainly return for another visit.
  • Beautiful park with forests, lakes and waterfalls. The road over the notch is narrow, so be careful when driving.
