Campgrounds in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom

The Northeast Kingdom is located in one of the more remote areas in New England. Its access to pristine, brings-tears-to-your-eyes wilderness is rivaled only by Maine’s backcountry. If you don’t decide to spend at least one night camping out, you’re missing out on lots of fun – and a connection to nature. Roast marshmallows, swim on freshwater beaches, and sleep under the stars.
