Molly Stark State Park
The park has open lawn areas, woods, and Mt. Olga rising to the east where there is an old fire tower with spectacular views. Two camping loops consist of 23 tent/trailer sites and 11 lean-to sites. One rest room with showers is located in each loop. There are a play area and a picnic pavilion for large groups. A hiking trail starts from the park and goes up to the Mt. Olga fire tower.
I camp at this campground at least once a year with my less "camping-friendly" friends. It's fantastic for non-campers as it has coin-op showers and a full bathroom, with on-site ice and firewood available for purchase.
Some campsites are better than others, with site # 16 being the worst (it's really a gravel turnabout), and sites #6 and #7 being the most secluded. Each campsite has a metal fire-ring with a metal grill for cooking.
The park as a pretty-strictly enforced "quiet-time" beginning at 10PM, which can be a bit of a hassle if you're with a group of adults who want to sit around the campfire and chat at night, but is good if you are with a family.
The campground allows some pets.
The hiking trail up Mt. Olga is quick and easy, and the view is spectacular from the firetower. Nearby Wilmington and Brattleboro are neat little towns. There is easy access to Harriman Reservoir for swimming, and there is a supermarket less than a mile away.
There is a large field that is great for frisbee/catch/whatever.
We were expecting the sites to be a bit larger & more spread out since it's a pretty large park, but a big tarp on a clothesline helps with unfriendly neighbors, which we were surprised to find quite a few of.
New bathroom & showers, very nice. Bathrooms are cleaned at least 3x a day if it's crowded, less when it empties out a bit. Showers are free & all tiled, you get your own room with a locking door - 2 handicapped & 2 regular. Very nice field - bring a frisbee. The hike to the Mt. Olga fire tower is nice, but very muddy if it's rained recently, & you can't see the view because the windows are filled with graffiti.
Easy to get to, nice shops down the road to the west. Firewood is $4 a bundle, but there's a place down the road that'll sell it - we got it for $50 for a medium sized pickup truck full. They are talking about outlawing bringing in firewood to any state park, so check first. In any case, it's hard to beat $14 a night.
