This campground centered around a scenic pond is a good spot for those who like a quiet camp site with fewer people and attractions. The camp sites are nicely spaced and the facilities for campers (waters, bathrooms, etc.) are more than adequate. There is a...More

Great campground, EXCEPT we were there this weekend and our cooler was stolen. Apparently this has been a problem here and at two other nearby state park campgrounds. While the front office knew of the problem we were not notified when we got there, nor...More

Still, quiet, private, pretty, tranquil. Half Moon is a peaceful camping site set beside a picturesque little lake. We camped in a lean too one night, hired a paddle boat, watched meteorites from the recreational open area. Bliss.

We loved our stay at Half Moon! The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is because of very rude campsite neighbors who were letting their children slam doors and chop wood with an ax right by our campsite early in the morning....More

We stayed three nights with our young child, and enjoyed our experience. Quiet hours are enforced, which we appreciated, but which may be ill suited to visitors hoping for later nights by the fire. The facilities are clean and the people very helpful. We took...More

Half Moon State Park is a hidden gem of the VT State Park system. Sites are generously sized and very well kept. Access to water is easy; restrooms are updated and very clean. And the swimming beach at the pond is wonderful! The park is...More
