Camping on the Battenkill
  • Fishing Boy
  • Welcome

    If your idea of camping is a quiet family campground, then you've come to the right place. Just north of the town of Arlington on Historic Route 7A you'll find Camping on the Battenkill. The campground has been owned and operated by the Pratt Family for over fifty years.

    The Battenkill is known as one of the best trout streams in the East. The challenge is in landing the native trout that reside in the stream. Swimming in the campground is done at the natural swimming hole in the Battenkill where the water is clear and refreshing. For little children who need a quiet area for swimming, there is the local recreational park, located 1000 feet from the campground. Many campers enjoy bringing their own tubes or canoes and floating down the river. Children and adults alike enjoy our open field for playing ball games, swinging on the swings, or digging in the sand pile.
