Winter Camping in Vermont

Find Solitude and Serenity

A winter camping trip offers the opportunity to see another side of Vermont's beautiful outdoors. Make your home in the snow and bed down for the night amid the silence and serenity of the season. Luckily for winter camping enthusiasts, Vermont State Parks never close, and make a great spot to set up camp.  The winter months mean the least number of visitors to the parks, which just means more space for you. Before you enjoy a winter camping trip, we suggest you read up on Vermont's winter conditions and how to best enjoy your experience.
