First trip to Vermont

We will be going to Vermont in June. We have a FR Birkshire 2011 and will be traveling with our son & his family. This is his first long tip he has a FR Roo, 22 ft., 4kids 14 to 3 yrs old and a dog.
We would like to say in the Brattleboro area, of even in southern New Hampshire.

Any suggestions?

There is a KOA in Brattleboro that has gotten good reviews. try to get to Sam's Outdoor store in town, it's a great old store to jsut roam around on a rainy day. We always go there on our ski trip for outdoor gear.

I live in VT but have not camped in that area. I did live outside of Brattleboro for a number of years. There is a campground across the river in Hinsdale, NH. It is called, Hinsdale Campground at Thicket Hill Village which looks nice and reasonable.

Second on going to Sam's Army & Navy when in Bratt. Look for the popcorn machine, grab a bag and walk around the store. Don't forget to go downstairs where all the camping and outdoor gear is.

If anyone in your group has a passion for microbrewed beer, seek out McNeil's on Elliot St. They don't open until 2 but it is worth it. Very kid friendly with long tables and games (board & card type, not electronic).

Hope you enjoy it and post some pics of your adventure.

Your just getting over the border into Vermont. However, I have to say the Brattleboro KOA is a great campground, clean and friendly. They have a very well stocked store, a nearby farmstand, and a fenced playyard. There are quite a few things to see in the state, nearby is Santasland, many covered bridges, great hiking areas to explore.

Enjoy the trip.

I grew up near there, so I haven't ever camped, but the Sam's in Brattleboro is a cool place to visit. Santa's Land used to be a cool place for kids... when I worked there.... in the late 80's!! I haven't been back since then though!! In Westminster VT, Allen Brothers stand has the BEST apple cider donuts. If you get there early enough, they're still warm and crunchy.
