Nestled along the banks of the Lamoille River, Mountain View is a haven for fishermen, couples and families alike. Only a few minutes from Stowe, Burlington and Montpelier, campers can experience the variety of activities which Vermont offers up in each season of the year.

Early Spring in Vermont means swollen rivers, running sap, birds calling, and beautiful lush fields of wildflowers. Take a trip to one of the many maple sugar houses in Vermont to see how sap is collected and boiled down into maple syrup. Cast your line into the Lamoille River, considered one of the best fishing rivers in Northern Vermont. We will even tell you where the secret fishing holes are located!

Summer in the mountains means warm, sunny days and cool nights. Relax by the campfire, go for a hike or a bike ride, splash in the pool, or canoe down the Lamoille River with the whole family. If you want more to do, visit one of the quaint, nearby towns to play some golf, eat at a fine restaurant, go shopping, or take in a country fair or craft show.

Burnt oranges, radiant reds and dazzling yellows typify the fall foliage in Vermont. Head to the mountains for a hike or into one of the nearby towns to search for the perfect pumpkin or a drink of fresh apple cider.
