When you want to camp in the woods or right on the water’s edge in central Vermont, the quiet and forested campground in Half Moon Pond State Park is worth considering. Within the much larger Bomoseen State Park, Half Moon Campground is one of the two public campgrounds within the park.
Lying on the densely wooded shores of the shallow Half Moon Pond, the motorhome camping sites provide Hubbardton campers with access to flush toilets, hot and cold running water, and coin-operated showers, including an RV dump station. Bring your pets; they are allowed throughout the park.
A playground is open to children. Campground activities like nature crafts and games and campfire programs offer additional entertainment. Night hikes and amphibian explorations also make staying here more exciting, whatever your age. Those who want to stay active may want to play volleyball and horseshoes or hit the park trails for a modest or even a full day’s hike. Keep an eye out for white-tailed deer or the occasional moose that are sometimes sighted on the trails.
Waterfront camping near Hubbardton certainly has its benefits, especially if you’re angling to land bass, perch, and northern pike, which Half Moon Pond has plenty of. Spend more time on the water by renting a rowboat, kayak or canoe, and even a pedal boat from the park office. You can also purchase firewood and ice on site. A couple of small sandy beaches beckon swimmers and sun loungers to their shores.
Lying on the shores of its namesake lake in the Taconic Mountains, the 3,500-acre Bomoseen State Park is practically Half Moon Campground’s backyard. Launch a boat, fish, or swim in Lake Bomoseen, the biggest within Vermont’s borders. Naturally, there are more hiking trails here than in the Half Moon area, including a self-guided Slate History Trail that takes hikers through the holes and slate buildings representing what once was a huge slate quarrying industry the Taconic Mountains are known for.
Camp with your rental motorhome at Half Moon Campground, and you’ll only be half an hour’s drive from Mount Independence State Historic Site, one of the most important and least disturbed Revolutionary War sites. Survey the archaeological remains of the fortification by following the six-mile trail that winds through the historic site, and imagine what it was like for Revolutionary soldiers to brave the elements of Mother Nature and British attacks from Canada.
For a deeper understanding of why Vermont is nicknamed the Green Mountain State, take your Hubbardton camper rental to the Green Mountain National Forest about two hours’ drive from town. Here you’ll have 900 miles of trail system to explore, including long sections of epic hikes like the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and the North Country Scenic Trail. If you’d rather experience the forest in your rental RV, follow Vermont Route 125 or the Middlebury Gap Road for an exhilarating ride through landscapes and scenery that inspired the iconic poet Robert Frost. Make frequent stops along the way to take in a scenic waterfall or a hike along a wooded trail.
Find your zen in the Japanese Garden of the 200-acre Taconic Ramble State Park just ten minutes’ drive away when RV camping at Half Moon Campground. While civilization is not far away, the undeveloped state of the park and the hilly climb to the garden temporarily disconnect you from city life. A different experience awaits at Wilson Castle in Proctor for those keen to see what a mid-19th century castle in Vermont looks like. Designed in a blend of European styles, the castle’s façade features English brick and marble, a striking contrast to the verdant forest surrounding it.
Vermont has a tremendous cache of marble, and you’ll see how it helped shaped the state’s history – and provided material to some of the country's most important edifices – at the Vermont Marble Museum, one of the largest of its kind in the world. Survey the Hall of Presidents, where profiles of U.S. presidents are sculpted in marble. You’ll also be able to imagine what it’s like to step inside a marble quarry, and then actually walk into a local quarry.
For auto racing enthusiasts, the Devil's Bowl Speedway in West Haven is a must-visit. The O'Reilly Auto Parts Modified division races are held here, the only NASCAR-sanctioned track in the state.
Like Vermont’s marble, there are plenty more discoveries that reward those willing to dig a bit deeper. Start charting the places you want to go, search for Rutland County campgrounds, and book an RV rental in Hubbardton, Vermont, to get your road trip underway.
