Vermont’s sparsely populated and infrequently visited northeast corner, known as the Northeast Kingdom, is the ideal location for camping with an RV. The only time tourism really picks up here is during the “leaf-peeping” season, when visitors from all around New England descend on the region to see the beautiful autumn colors. Its lack of tourists shouldn’t be taken as a measurement of its appeal though, but rather its remoteness. When you book an RV in Caledonia County, you’ll have access to a variety of cultural, historical, and nature-based activities and will not be short on things to do.Fortunately, you can enjoy the beauty of the Northeast Kingdom while being just outside a city. Moose River Campground only a few miles from St. Johnsbury and is one of the best places to go camping when renting an RV. Sites at Moose River Campground have full hookups, including 50 amp electrical service. There are also bathrooms, laundry facilities, and propane tank refills. The majority of the sites face the Moose River, making for a relaxing camping experience. The RV campground also offers planned activities on the weekends, which are great for getting to know your fellow campers and RV travel enthusiasts. It should be noted that the campground is geared towards adults, and doesn’t have any kid-friendly activities or a playground.Moose River Campground is well connected with the rest of the state, being only a few miles from Interstate 91, which connects the cities of Brattleboro and White River Junction with the Canadian city of Sherbrooke. You can also take Highway 2 over to the state’s capital, Montpelier, and it’s the quickest route to Burlington, Vermont’s largest city.

The Northeast Kingdom is famous for its untouched landscapes, and you won’t need to drive far to enjoy them when you’re RV camping at Moose River Campground. Victory State Forest is a couple of miles to the north and has nearly 30 miles of prime hiking trails to offer. Even farther north is Willoughby State Forest, home of Mount Pisgah, which has a fantastic day hike to its summit overlooking Lake Willoughby.Cyclists staying at Moose River Campground will love the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, which runs for 93 miles between the Connecticut River Valley in the east to just shy of Lake Champlain’s western shore, making it Vermont’s longest rail trail. The trail’s parking lot is just north of the Interstate 91/Highway 5 Interchange, though the closest bicycle rental shops are in Lyndonville or Littleton, NH, both of which are about 20 minutes' drive away. A bed of crushed gravel makes for a fairly easy ride, but it’s best to use a wider-tired hybrid or mountain bike to avoid taking a spill.If you’re looking for a round of golf during your stay, then you’re in luck. St Johnsbury has several courses within a few miles of its downtown core; all of which are great for a relaxing afternoon when you’re RV camping.
St. Johnsbury is the hub of activity in the Northeast Kingdom and only a few minutes away when you choose an RV rental near Moose River Campground. It’s where you’ll find the best restaurants, shopping, and one of the only sizeable grocery stores in the Northeast Kingdom. Though don’t expect too much nightlife-wise, this is still a sparsely populated state, and all the college students are over in Burlington. However, Vermont does have the most craft breweries per capita, so it’d be a shame if you didn’t visit at least one or two of them during your motorhome camping adventure.When in Vermont, you also must try the maple syrup, and you need not look any further than Maple Grove Farms of Vermont, halfway between the RV park and St Johnsbury, to find it. They’ve got maple candy, maple creamies (the name Vermonters use for soft-serve ice cream), and, of course, maple syrup. You can also learn about the process of sugaring and see some of the equipment that processes that oh-so-delicious tree sap.For a bit of culture, check out the Catamount Film and Arts center on Eastern Ave. The community center houses two movie theaters that show independent and foreign language films – something you definitely wouldn’t expect in such a small town. There’s also an art gallery attached to it showcasing works from locals and other artists from around Vermont.The Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium is another unexpected gem for a tiny New England town. Featuring an eclectic mix of exhibits, the Fairbanks educates visitors on ecology, archeology, anthropology, and astronomy. There’s even a vintage toy exhibit that’s quite popular with the kids.
What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
