  • Allis State Park, VT


    Allis SP is a small out-of-the-way gem of a park, located atop a hill in Brookfield VT, a little south of Montpelier and Barre. One climbs a steep hill on a good gravel road about a mile, to an elevation of 2000'.


    We were pleasantly surprised to find that the park has a few sites out in an open grassy area; most VT parks we've been to are quite dark in the woods. Site 15 suited us just fine.

    Date of visit: Jul 2008

    Site 18 is another of the sunny sites to choose from.

    And a few more sunny ones: 17a, 17, and 16.

    Site 2 is much more typical of VT state parks - well-shaded. This is is also quite private.

    Site 1 is a smaller site that still has a little sun.

    Site 5 is the only pull-through site.

    Campers can also stay in one of 8 lean-to shelters.

    While on our walk around the campground, we spotted this bruin taking a slow stroll along the road.

    A short walk from the campground takes you to this former fire lookout tower. It is in excellent condition and you can climb to the top, from which you have a fantastic panorama of the mountains. I was even able to pick out Mt Washington, off in neighboring New Hampshire.

    I spent about an hour and a half up in the tower at sunset, which cast an interesting shadow of the tower on the trees.
