Last Day in Vermont

(Dummerston, VT)  Hi 69 Lo 57 -- The weather is perfect, and we’re still going to be here in the north a while longer. It’s still very hot down south, so we’re in no hurry yet to head that way.

It was breezy all day and the weekend campers headed out early. Several new arrivals came in later in the day. This is a nice park, and as usual on our last day at a park I'll post some photos.

There’s a big area in the open for those like us who don’t want to be under trees.

There’s another section that's all in the trees.

A bathhouse on the edge of the tree section.

There are many things for families to do, including this play area for the kids. The wood SUV, castle, and boat are very unique. (Click on the photo for a larger view.)

And a small but nice putt putt golf course. Both were very busy over the weekend.

It’s been a great stay. The park wi-fi is great, and our satellite dish was able to get two of the three satellites (which means we had to watch some of our stations in non-HD, which is no big deal). One nice perk at this park is free "honey wagon" service. We told the office we're leaving tomorrow and they had a guy come out today and pump out our tanks. That will save us some time tomorrow, as we won't have to stop at the dump station. If we’re ever in this area again, we’ll be back at this park.

We love the area, with its covered bridges, wonderful REAL maple syrup, and streams and rivers.

First time I've heard of a campground with "Honey Wagon" service. Convenient!

Yeah, we also enjoyed VT. from the Capital to the Cabot Cheese Tour, and then Ben & Jerry's tour. After that we enjoyed he Vt. Teddy Bear Factory tour, and we went on a boat tour on Lake Champlain and we learned a lot about it's important during the Revolution War. Also the beauty of Burlington. Hope that you enjoyed your stay.

That sure is nice of the campground to provide the honey wagon service.

Maybe we will cross paths somewhere. We head into NY tomorrow from PA. We will visit Niagara Falls, then head East.

I'm happy to see that you were able to see a part of NH and VT. We spent the whole summer camphosting at a statepark near Killington Vt. in '09. We worked Mon. Tues. and Wed and were off the rest of the week so we were able to tour the whole state plus the north half of NH and central NY. We stayed long enough to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. If you ever have a chance to go back I would urge you to see the central through northern sections of NH and Vt. We loved our stay that year.
