We drove thru - not much to see but camp sites. Looked like there were some hiking trails but not much else.

Super camping spots and close to downtown Brattleboro for supplies and dining. We met friends and all enjoyed the convenience and comfort of the campground.

My husband and I camped for 50 years. Fort Dummer was a favorite with friendly staff and spacious sites. It is quiet but close to amenities
